Candy Crush Saga Celebrates One-Year Anniversary
King released big numbers for its addictive puzzle game.
It's hard to believe Candy Crush Saga has been popular for so long - but indeed, today is the game's one year anniversary on mobile.
To celebrate, King released new info showcasing some quirky facts about the game, along with its success.
For example, over 150 billion individual games have been played to date over the past year, with most games played between 6PM and 9 PM in the evening. Sundays are the most popular, since everyone's off from work of course. On top of that, it appears Level 65 is the most challenging.
As part of the celebration, King will release a range of new updates and in-game anniversary treats over the coming weeks. Users can also take part in the celebration by visiting the Candy Crush Saga Facebook page and Tweeting with the hashtag #candycrush1year.
"The past year has been one of the most exciting times for King since Candy Crush Saga launched on mobile," says Tommy Palm, Games Guru at King. "The incredible milestone of more than half a billion downloads of the game, as well as the continued enthusiasm from our community, really delights the entire King team. Fans can look forward to even more exciting new Candy Crush Saga content over the coming months, including an exciting new twist to the game."
Here's to another year of crushing candies!
