The new Candy Crush? King launches Blossom Blast Saga
King has launched a new Android and iOS app called Blossom Blast Saga that Activision will be keen to see do quite well.
King, the makers of Candy Crush and the company that Activision deemed worthy of purchasing for $5.9 billion, has launched Blossom Blast Saga on Android and iOS.
The game tasks players with growing flower buds into blooms by drawing lines to connect three or more matching buds in a single line. When you make a match, all but one of the flowers used in the chain disappears; the remaining flower grows and, when large enough, blooms.
These blooming flowers can also cause nearby flowers to grow, which could in turn set off a chain reaction.
Blossom Blast Saga features 120 levels at launch. Of course, like other King titles, you only have a certain number of moves in which to complete a level. Failing to do so within the restricted number of moves causes you to lose a life. As you'd expect, you can either wait to regain lives, get lives from friends on Facebook, or buy them with gold bars.
Blossom Blast Saga is now available to download for free from the App Store and from Google Play.
