Candy Boom from Eva Studio is on the rise on Facebook, with the match-three game climbing to over 1.4 million monthly active players, according to our app tracking service AppData. The game provides a repeatable match-three level and the ability to compare scores against friends, but without the additional challenge of games like Candy Crush Saga.

Each level in Candy Boom is the same, and asks players to clear all of the white squares from the board within a certain number of moves. Like gold tiles in Jewel Quest or jelly tiles in Candy Crush Saga, these white squares are removed by making a match of three or more like-colored candies on top of them.

As players make matches of four or more like candies, or special T or L shaped matches, the board fills with power-ups and bombs which may clear whole rows or columns of white tiles from the board, or simply destroy a few squares in a confined area.

Each play in Candy Boom costs a life, but players can purchase these and additional power-ups with real money. For instance, one power-up clears the entire bottom row of white squares, while another destroys 27 candies at once. Players are also given a few of these items for free as they complete games, earn experience points and eventually level-up.

If players manage to clear all of the white tiles from the board before their moves run out, they’ll activate a bonus game consisting of a reset board, a reset move count, and the ability to earn even more points without spending another life. The more points earned in a single game, the higher players climb on the in-game leaderboard.

Candy Boom is now available to play for free on Facebook, and was recently released on iOS and Android as “Candy Booms” and “Candy Boom,” respectively. Both mobile apps are available to download for free. Check back soon to follow Candy Boom on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
