Addition of Dreamworld
Candy Crush Saga is a match three game developed by King in April 2012 for Facebook and for smartphones. It has surpassed Farmville being the most popular game on Facebook and has more than 46 million monthly users. One of the latest and major updates for the game came in December 2013.

There are 40 episodes and each of the episodes has 15 levels. The first two episodes, however, only have ten levels.
With the update in December 2013, the Dreamworld levels were added. This world is also being periodically updated. The Dreamworld update contains 260 levels and has 18 episodes.
The game involves matching 3 similar candies and then clearing them from the board. You can also combine four candies or five candies and make special candies with more powers. The levels are quite different and each one will set the player with different objectives.
Some goals might involve bringing down certain ingredients; some might involve reaching a particular goal of points; some might involve clearing jellies whereas others might involve removing bombs.

Candy Crush Saga has been a very popular and successful game, as it combines the new with the old. It is very similar to the old video games, such as Bejeweled but has a lot of modern twists added to it. The game is also constantly evolving and has many surprises along the way.
Players keep coming back for more and more, as the game is very compelling. The graphics are gorgeous and fun. The gameplay is also very sophisticated, providing the right mix of challenge and skill with fun. A solo playing game was converted into a game that could be played using social elements.

There are also powerful incentives in the game, such as additional lives received through friends and boosters that you can share with others.
