Games2win’s Slapster ‘slaps’ its way to No. 1 position on Orkut, a popular online gaming destination, has launched ‘Slapster’, its first application on the social network site Orkut. In the first few days of going live, Slapster has already commanded number one position amongst Orkuteers.

Using Slapster, users can virtually slap their friends! To personalize the experience and make it as real as possible, the application allows for a friend’s profile picture to be added to a male or female avatar. Users can then simply use their mouse to click and drag a trembling hand and strike with maximum force. To avoid giving unsuspecting ‘friends’ a nasty surprise, the application also allows for users to state their reason for slapping.

In less than a month Slapster has clocked a record-breaking 1,86,000 installations, making it currently the most used, most popular application on Orkut.

Remarked Alok Kejriwal, Founder & CEO of Games2win, “The application is based on one of's popular games. The game-play translated seamlessly into an SNS application format.”

Commenting on Slapster’s differentiating factor, he added, “A simple, inconspicuous ‘poke’ is getting to be passé. Users are now looking for more expressive ways to communicate with friends, but they want to keep it light and fun at the same time. Slapster gives them this outlet.”
