Mafia Wars is not just for Facebook anymore.
San Francisco-based Zynga is bringing its popular and addictive games to the Android mobile platform.
But the games made popular on Facebook won't be completely free of the Social Network on Android phones. Users will still need to use their Facebook accounts to log on to the games.
Zynga will also release its popular version of Texas Hold 'Em on Android platforms as well.
Beyond games, Zynga further cemented itself as one of the coolest companies to be involved with Friday.
Hip hop icon Dr. Dre signed on with Zynga to promote his music through the developer's games.
Now not only will you be able to kill of bad guys on your Android phone, but you'll be able to bounce to Dr. Dre's newest album while you do it.
