Candy Crush Saga?s popularity

The game was first introduced in April 2012 as a Flash game that users can play on the web version of Facebook, much like how FarmVille had worked. It became so popular that King, the company behind it, released an Android and iOS version later that year.

On March 2013, King?s sweet little game outdid FarmVille 2 as the most popular game played by Facebook users, with more than 46 million average monthly users. At the time of this writing, Candy Crush Saga already has over 800 regular levels and more than 500 Dreamworld level. The latter gives players the chance to replay olders using a new mechanic. Last month, the game finally arrived on the Windows Phone platform.
