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.
While the Facebook bubble game craze has lessened in recent months, players still have plenty of games to choose from, which provide new bubble popping opportunities. 6waves’ Bubble Legend, for instance, allows players to pop bubbles in a blitz style, racing against the clock to earn points before time runs out.
Puzzle fans looking for a twist on traditional match-three play can now try Square Enix’s Smoothie Swipe on Facebook, a game that focuses on dragging and tracing lines over matching fruit, rather than swapping their positions.
Hoping to gain some of the same popularity earned by King’s Pet Rescue Saga, 6waves has released Wonderland Epic on Facebook. The level-based puzzle game takes players to the land of the Red Queen, Jack Diamond and Club Ace, and asks them to make matches by simply clicking on groups of two or more matching tiles.
By now, many Facebook players have tried quite a few match-three puzzle games, but in a world of life-limited gameplay, there’s always room for more. After all, what better way to spend your time waiting for lives to recharge in one game, than by spending lives in another? Cubeflux’s Jewel Pirates further encourages that idea.
Ooblada’s Riddle Stone Saga offers brain teasers on Facebook, as players are challenged with creating images by filling in the appropriate squares on a grid. The game is similar to Picross, as players must look at the numbers associated with each column or row on the grid to know how many squares to fill in, and how many to avoid.
Slot Universe developer iDream Interactive has joined the match-three puzzle genre on Facebook with the release of Super Gem Heroes. The game stars a young boy named Gem Boy, on a mission to retrieve his stolen toys from the evil Boogeyman. Players are joined by a superhero named Ruby-loo, who guides Gem Boy through each level, offering helpful tips along the way.
Social and casual game developer and publisher 6waves has released its newest game on Facebook, a puzzle game called Treasure Epic. In keeping with the hottest trend on Facebook, the game resembles King’s Pet Rescue Saga, asking players to click on groups of matching blocks to clear them from the screen.
Flash game developer Team Cooper has partnered with The Sainsbury Laboratory to create a new Facebook game with a greater purpose than just having fun. The game is called Fraxinus, and it uses Facebook gamers to crowdsource scientific research for the Open Ash Die Back project.
