David Ko, Zynga's mobile executive, told Reuters it had acquired Gamedoctors the German-based developer of the hit mobile game "ZombieSmash".
The company also bought the San Francisco-based games companies Page44 Studios who developed the iOS platform game "World of Goo" as well as mobile technology firm HipLogic.
