Introducing Thunder Raid, WeChat’s newest action-packed aerial shooter game. Your mission – to shoot down the opposing faction, a fleet of enemy planes each protecting and led by their evil sky boss. Hone your skills by dodging their fires, collecting gold coins and jewels for upgrades and stronger weapon. Do all successfully and you’re sure to beat the bosses.
But remember, each level has its own evil sky boss piloting an enormous aircraft with each getting tougher and tougher.
The best part is you can customize virtually every aspect of the game – your planes, pilots, attack modes and terrain to fight back. Wind, Ruby, Candy, Andrew and Ronnal, take your pick! Each character has his or her own weaknesses and strengths; it’s up to you to decide which one is best for you!
High school students present their final mobile games at Mission Bit’s Demo Day.
The beauty of programming is that you start with nothing, but with a few lines of code you can create just about anything.
Understanding the power of programing and technology to give back to the community, we partnered with Mission Bit, a San Francisco non-profit organization to empower public high school students with the skills and confidence to build software that aligns with their passions.
In just six weeks, 12 students with little to no programming experience showcased three fully functional games at their demo day on July 10, 2014 – including two RPG-style games and one platformer. Students presented their games to press and industry panelists, including members from Google Play and WeChat.

There are some of us who have an undeniable need for speed. But you don’t always need to ground the gas pedal and hit law-breaking speeds to feel adrenaline cursing through your body. That’s why WeChat has launched WeChat Speed.
To celebrate this exciting game in Malaysia, we pitted the nation’s speed demons against celebrities to find the fastest racers.
WeChat invited everyone across Malaysia to compete and post their highest WeChat Speed scores for a chance to race with the country’s hottest celebrities in the grand finale.
