[caption id="attachment_3715" align="alignright" width="192" caption=" Tiger of Mysore on Zapak Manase"][/caption] Manase Microsite - Our politicians seem to be taking gaming quite seriously. Zapak has built a microsite for Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena called Manase.zapak.com. The intention behind creating setting up a microsite with gaming firm Zapak was to enable more interaction with youth supporters. The Sena has its own website here. The microsite, besides urging surfers to vote for the party, has a Dream Big contest, a game called The Tiger Of Mysore, based on Tipu Sultan, videos and news of the party and a forum which appears to be quite inactive with just one relevant topic. The game chosen by Manase from Zapak's collection is about defending Tipu Sultan's fortress against "goras". A browser-based, casual game that has engaging music, it has an overall rating of three. A screenshot of it is here. Zapak claims over 6.5 million registered gamers and recently rolled out sites for UK and Pakistan. Bakugan Toys - Zapak's merchandising arm has announced it will unveil a new range of toys of ‘The Battle of Brawlers’ based on the Japanese anime series Bakugan. Over 0.5 million Bakugan toys have been sold worldwide. The company is offering the toys for Rs 399- 599, in comparison with international prices $5 -24.
