Candy Crush dev reveals Papa Pear Saga for iOS and Android
Candy Crush Saga developer King has announced its popular Facebook title Papa Pear Saga will launch on iOS and Android soon.
The title can be played over on Facebook now if you fancy a shot. It’ll hit iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and a range of Android devices in due course.
In a press release sent to VG247 this morning, King confirmed that its portfolio of titles now logs over 1 billion daily plays, following news that the company has canned five of its games to focus efforts on its most popular releases.
Riccardo Zacconi, CEO and co-founder of King said in a statement, “Papa Pear Saga is different to any of our other games. It still possesses that core King puzzle quality, but it will be our first mobile Saga game to have a physics element which we think will translate very well to mobile and tablet game play.
“It’s also astonishing to see game plays grow to over 1 billion a day. This is a tenfold increase since our first Saga game launch on mobile this time last year.”
We’ll update once we have a solid mobile release date. In the meantime, here’s some screens:
