King Digital Entertainment, the developer behind the super addictive Candy Crush Saga, has soft-launched a sequel to their popular game on Tuesday. The new game, called Candy Crush Soda Saga, is available on Google Play Store in selected regions including Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, and Canada.
The developer previously attempted to trademark the word ?candy? and ?saga.? ?With this new Candy Crush Soda Saga game, perhaps you can reward yourself by predicting how long will it take for King to trademark ?soda?? And with the addition of a new word to the title, maybe they are hoping that players will believe that their sequel will have a totally different gameplay? Brilliant, isn?t it?
Jokes aside, Phone Arena observed that the difference between Candy Crush Soda Saga and Candy Crush Saga indeed lies mainly in their titles. The new game?s background is now made up of purple soda in which the colorful candies float within the grid instead of falling down as observed in the previous version.
Here is a list of all Candy Crush Soda Saga features as shown in its Google Play Store listing:
? Mouth-watering graphics
? Soda-soaked environments and the friendliest characters
? Delicious boosters to help with challenging levels
? Complete juicy levels and unlock treats
? Easy and fun to play, challenging to master
? 75 sweet levels in this magical world
? Leaderboards to watch your friends and competitors!
? Easily sync the game between devices and unlock full game features when connected to the Internet
While no announcement was made regarding the full Android release of Candy Crush Soda Saga, it is rumored to come out in the latter half of this year and the iOS version coming shortly afterwards. The more pressing question now is whether the present Candy Crush Saga app will be taken down from the App Store. This is in line with Apple?s new policy for the upcoming iOS 8 to restrict apps that: reward users if they share their activities on social networks; apps that give incentives to users if they rate in App Store; and apps that will promote other apps within its interface. Such methods have all been utilized by successful mobile game applications like Candy Crush, Subway Surfer, and Temple Run.
