People have been going nuts for Candy Crush Saga. I mean nuts. And yet, it’s still growing.
The latest update adds a new episode, titled Rainbow Runway. You’ll be helping Minty the unicorn across 440 new levels, presumably crushing candy along the way. 440! That’s freaking ridiculous! It’s like a dentist’s never-ending nightmare.

Red Ronin, a studio composed of former Atari and King.com executives, today released their first game, Amazing Flying Machines, exclusively on iOS. Check out their video blog after you download their free blimp-piloting title, available now for iPad 2 and up.
Amazing Flying Machines is a 3D puzzle-flying game that uses the Unity engine. The player pilots a blimp through a variety of thrilling and hazardous environments; control is maintained by quickly adding and subtracting weights, balloons, and rockets from the blimp’s frame. In addition, each Pilot has their own set of special abilities, which further expands the types of aeronautical stunts players can pull off.
King.com has launched their popular Facebook gameBubble Witch Saga on iOS. This match–3 game inspired by Bust-a-Move/Puzzle Bobble has players launching bubbles at ones into a playing field, trying to match 3 of the same color. Each level has a set layout, and there’s a limited number of bubbles that a player has in order to complete the level. There are also cauldrons at the bottom that bubbles can fall into to give extra points. These include bubbles that fall off when higher bubbles are eliminated, after the remaining bubbles in the level fall, and any leftover bubbles not shot are launched into the playing field. Having lots of bubbles for scoring points is the key to getting high scores, and the 3-star rewards.
However, the killer feature is that Bubble Witch Saga can synchronize progress between the Facebook and iOS versions. Logging in with one’s Facebook account allows the game to easily synchronize across platforms. May no bubble be unnecessarily popped twice!
Part of a genre where every strategic battle title begins to look familiar, Heroes of Dragon Age separates itself with highly detailed artwork and gameplay to match. However, initial long load times and semi-auto gameplay might put some off.
