Zynga has launched Ruby Blast, a game where players match gems, dig through bedrock with help from friends, and activate power-ups to reach high scores in a weekly leaderboard. Created by the teams from Zynga’s China and Seattle studios, Ruby Blast follows intrepid archeologist, Ruby, in a high-speed race into the depths of an ancient mine where players smash through dirt to uncover hidden treasure and face off with friends.

Ruby Blast is the first game to launch from both Zynga China and Zynga Seattle. It also marks the first cross-collaboration for a game at launch. Ruby Blast is available in 15 languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Norwegian, Thai, Swedish, Danish, Japanese and Dutch.

Ruby Blast is free to play and available today on both Zynga.com, and on Facebook.
