If you're a fan of mobile and Facebook games, then you've probably heard about Candy Crush, the insanely-addicting game that hit the world like a storm. In fact, the game is so addicting that it now has over 15 million users on Facebook alone, and more than 66 million daily users overall. Candy Crush Saga was also the most popular game on iOS and Android last month, making it to the third spot in terms of monthly revenue.
Although Zynga's Farmville once had 82 million daily users, during its earning's call, the company revealed that its users have dropped to 52 million daily players, positioning the game next to CandyCrush. London-based gaming company, King, is the developer of Candy Crush, and they couldn't be happier. The game was officially launched in November last year. In just a span of six months, the game topped the charts, making it even more popular than Rovio's Angry Birds franchise.
