So what are the new and exciting features on this free-to-play 380 level (!) game?

Well, pretty spectacularly the app will be serving 3D visuals for the very first time. Yes, feast your eyes on that guys. There will be interactive characters and then new ones unlocked through levels as you play the game. These characters will be your buddies, your pals, your friends if you will.

Not only will they be serving as cute AF little pals, but players will also have some pretty lit new games, like Find The Animals, Spread The Jam, and Dunk The Cookies. Yeah, give me all of them things ASAP thank you.

King Digital Entertainment have proved to be absolute bosses in the gaming world. The Candy Crush franchise, which first launched in 2012, has been a rip-roaring success and has filled many people's free time. The game is so popular that the company behind it has been making actual billions thanks to its revolutionary animations, addictive games, and most importantly, giving the people what they want. Zacconi shared what he believes is the foundation and reasoning behind the company's astounding success:

"One thing we learned over the years is that it’s important to include surprise in the game and to continue releasing new content, it gives players a reason to come back and a reason to keep playing."

The game's success has even led to a super delicious ice cream flavour being created. Yep, they have gone and provided some real 4D enjoyment as well.

OK cool, find the game on your app store and clear your diary. Game on.
