When it was first released as a game for Facebook, its developers couldn't even dream about it reaching the success it has achieved: millions of players hooked on from the very first moment, sending invitations to all their contacts, just like they used to do with FarmVille.
Moving on to mobile platforms
The game's success led to a version for iPhone as well as the subsequent APK for Android smartphones and tablets, which ended up confirming Candy Crush Saga as one of the most profitable games developed by King.com. Obviously, a version for PC had to come next, so here's the edition for Windows 10. To get hold of it you'll only have to press the Download button and install the APPX file that will bring the native version of Candy Crush for Windows to your computer screen.
One of the greatest hits in the short history of mobile games.
So here it is on our desktop, the game that repeats the winning formula of Bejeweled and Jewel Quest, but this time around with candies instead of gems and precious stones. And no, you're not going to find anything different on your computer than what you've already seen on your phone or tablet, in fact, it's exactly the same game.
By the way... how to play it?
Well, that's a shocking question, since you probably know how to play this game off by heart as you've surely played other similar games before. You have to swap the position of several elements on the board in order to line-up horizontally or vertically three o more identical blocks. That's when they disappear and their space is occupied by others, with new items appearing on the panel.
You usually have to try to reach a certain number of sweets to complete each panel, but you can also play against the clock or any other game mode.
