Historically, if you dared to suggest that a game could be free to play, function across multiple platforms, and work on devices that fit in the palm of your hand, you would be burned alive for witchcraft. So, it seems at least partly appropriate that the latest title to achieve these features is Bubble Witch Saga, which was released on iOS today by TriplePoint client King.com. We mentioned this was happening a while ago, so I guess we have precognitive abilities — we would appreciate not being burned alive, please.
From the press release:
Bubble Witch Saga is one of the top casual social games and the largest non-Zynga game on the [Facebook] platform. The game invites players to become the fourth witch in the circle by bursting the bubbles to spawn enough spiders to keep the cauldron bubbling. Players can rise up the leaderboards and challenge friends’ high scores in hundreds of levels, with new ones added each week. And with the new, fully synchronized mobile version, players will be able to play anytime, anywhere – picking up right where they left off.
If anyone wants to burn King.com alive at this point, it may be Android users, who will have to wait until later this year for their version. But, please don’t.
