Today is a happy day for many mobile gamers. Why? Because it’s the 5th anniversary of one of the most popular and successful mobile games, Candy Crush Saga [Free], a game that has earned more than three billion downloads and has been in the App Store’s top 10 grossing apps for 16 quarters in a row. In other words, this is a game that has made a ton of money over the last five years. Here are some more crazy numbers for you. Candy Crush Saga has been downloaded over 2.7 billion times, over a trillion game rounds have been played, and every day approximately 72 thousand miles are swiped on the game. The highest score ever achieved is 1,999,259, 792 (definitely not by me), and the most popular time to play Candy Crush in the US is between 8pm and 10pm.
To celebrate the anniversary, Candy Crush Saga is giving players the most powerful booster to date, the Party Booster. Each player will get two free Party Boosters, and they can use them to remove all the candies from the board and damage each blocker once. And when the board settles, the booster releases a striped candy, wrapped candy, Colorbomb, and a fish, all of which explode immediately and help players progress. The party booster will be available to players on level 29 and above starting today. Happy birthday, Candy Crush Saga.
