  • Oh yeah.. Even tho I don't play the game.
  • Would not play this but great news, no more off topic requests lol
  • This should be with Live.....should have achievements.
  • Haha.. I don't mind about this game
  • I hate the publisher and their dick move suing people who made games with "Candy" in the title, and games with "Saga", despite Candy Crush itself being a rip-off in both name and gameplay.
  • Nah, except for big publishers, almost none of those from iOS and Android port their games as Xbox Live. Also, it will take a few more months for this game to be released if it were Xbox-enabled.
  • No, this is a good, ole-fashioned money sink. Achievements should be reserved for games that require skill to beat instead of cash. I played this on the iPad for a few weeks. I'm glad that checkbox has been filled, but I think this game's popularity has already begun to wane.
  • Cant believe... Started playing this game yesterday on droid..today its on wp.. I searched it today on wp store as well only a few hrs ago.. What a coincidence its live!!!!
  • Same here :P
  • It has been on Android for over a year now. It's so yesteryear...
  • Yep, Microsoft should've ensured it was Xbox Live enabled. Another huge missed opportunity (after yesterday's terrible Minecraft: PE launch). When your customers have to wait years to get a game, you should go out of your way to make sure they get the definitive version of that game. Xbox integration could've been that differentiator. #SaveXboxWP. Truth, right here.
  • If they were to ad xbox live to Minecraft: PE it would be released in june 2015. Would you like that? Don't get me wrong, I also want games to have xbox features but first MS needs to fix the ridiculously long xbox certification process before you can start being angry about the lack of xbox support.
  • Agreed. I'd rather see it on the platform before getting xbox live support.
  • I'd rather see it do both. Don't settle. You deserve Xbox games on WP and you deserve them in a timely fashion.
  • If you actually bothered to follow the link and read the goals of the #SaveXboxWP movement, you'd have seen that the very first goal is to cajole Microsoft into revamping the counterproductive Xbox certification process.
  • Alright but I was only responding to your comment, which didn't specify these details at all.
  • In my comment that you replied to was embedded a link to those details.
  • I honestly did not notice, I'm in the app so all I saw was a hashtag. (no, that tiny icon for links didn't catch my attention)
  • Yeah, the app doesn't do a good job of advertising embedded links. You have to tap and hold on the comment until a context menu pops up, and then, if there is a link,  you have to click "follow link". It's pretty cumbersome.
  • Agreed.
  • Yes! Bad Microsoft! Stupid Satya for not enabling Xbox Live in a game that is made by King!
  • It's Microsoft's platform. It's their responsibility to court developers and incentivize them. So, yes, they should be criticized for dropping the ball on this (and other recent ports) by not facilitating Xbox Live integration.
  • I'll never play the game, but downloading anyway just to bump numbers.
  • That doesn't really do anything.
  • OMG, it's finally here. I just saw tear dropping from my other eye.
  • I'm not playing the game, but this is a great addition to Windows Phone Store :) Let's see if other major titles follow the route...
  • Finally, I don't love it, but I'm sure that this game will make alot of WP fans happy
  • R.I.P. All Candy Crush Alternatives.
  • Lol, #truth
  • Heh?!
    I still enjoy playing Frozen -_-!
  • I was actually playing it just before reading this news.
    Edit: Playing frozen free fall
  • Hi5! What level, mate? I'm at 142 :)
  • I'm on 171 on Frozen, and my gf is probably past 200 already.
  • LOL! I gotta play more, I suppose :P
  • 206 btw i was about to open the game to check it, but the tile flipped and it showed my level.  Gotta love live tiles.
  • That's what live tiles are meant for! :D
  • Actually it would if it worked fine...but it runs abnormally ssslooooowwww
  • Finally!!! love how smooth the app is, and LOVE that it syncs with facebook
  • Funny, that's actually the one thing most people HATE about the game.
  • I think i get why, the lives soesn't sync between FB and my Phone, so if i have full on Facebook, i can have 0 on my phone.. But i like it beacuse of the backup!
  • I like that it syncs because I have only had a windows phone as a smartphone, and I had played this on fb instead because it wasn't available. Now I have all my progress synced right up and ready to go!
  • NOW JUST CLASH OF CLANS, THEN I WILL GIVE ZERO FCKS ABOUT THE 'APP GAP' IF ANY!
  • BTW we have the father!! Age Of Empires!! :P
  • Lol, Castle Siege? That game is a shameless copy of Clash of Clans.
  • There are tons of Clash of Clans copies out there. Gameloft has Total Conquest, Disney has Star Wars Commanders, and MS Studios has AoE: CS.
  • LOL. Actually CoC is the copy of AOE. Since AoE was the first game of this kind. I'd prefer AoE > CoC any day.
  • Then you can play AoE all damn day long now cant you? .. I am sorry but I play BOTH and CoC has MUCH more to offer then AoE.
  • "than"
  • You are right bro!! Hi5!
  • Broda you said it wrong!! Coc is copy of aoe!! ;)
  • Lol, it's the other way around dude.
  • Kingdoms& lords I play that and I am happy
  • I love Kingdoms and Lords!
  • What about Cloud Raiders? :)
  • Call of Duty: Heroes if it ever hits the phone. But I'm a CoD fanboy
  • It might. That game is already on Windows 8.X.
  • +620
  • To all of you who have replied, I have AOE:CS on my Lumia and CoC on my iPad. Truth is, I like AOE's potential, but it didn't really catch on and so atm, CoC wins. All my friends who have Droid/IOS play it, and I'm just waiting and waiting for that day, where CoC arrives, and I can brag the f about how Windows Phone is the BEST!!
  • Ever played cloud raiders? Awesome gameplay. Just missing the global chat n clan wars features.
  • Cloud Raiders is cool my kids play it but still not nearly as big as CoC user base.
  • I need CoC I wanna see that Supercell logo booting up on my Lovable Lumia 1520 and I would not Regret buying my Lumia.I wouldn't regret Dyin.....
  • Did you say it before?
    Or is it my early night déjà vu? xD
  • MAN YOU ARE SO RIGHT!
  • heed us, microsoft!
    we must summon CoC to strengthen our core. the paling must not fall!
  • Cant wait for soda saga sometime in 2018!!!!
  • lol
  • True story Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • +L1020 +L630 +Soda +Cookies +Lawn mower +MyDog +All s#it out there, these quotes are fockin truth , Time to go back to hibernation and wait for next big thing
  • You sir, just made my night! Yeah, night!
  • Lol, WP will still be around in 2018  lol MS will stop throwing cash at this dead OS someday.  MS only hope is to kiss an make up with google and side load android apps while keeping WP OS look and feel.   
  • Well, Windows Phone has officially made it. ;-)
  • Mama, I made it!
  • Your mama will be so proud!
  • Attaboy!
  • She is! :P
  • And your dad too :P
  • Him too. He's smiling down proudly at me from heaven. :)
  • is your dad riding on you...? i wanna know what that heaven is.
  • My dad dies when I was 14.
  • I'd wait until we get YouTube before saying that ;)
  • Aaaaaaaaand we're done here.
    Glad we finally have it. Only Snapchat really left.....
  • And a non-beta Instagram
  • 6tag is way better
  • I agree with you...
  • (/◕ヮ◕)/
  • Yahooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!! Yahoo is a trademark of Yahoo™ all rights reserved :P
  • I... laughed. :p
  • I will Su you:P
  • LMAO!!!
  • Finally!
  • Yes! Now my mom can play her favorite game.
  • Wow, we have 2 year olds on here. ;-P
  • Good sign for the future.
  • I mean the future of wp depends on some silly candy crush saga?? Have we got down to such low depths????? Lmao!!!!
  • Lmao
  • Lol its not just that, it's that big name games, apps, and publishers are becoming a little more common on WP.
  • I somewhat agree with you but we have to remember that if we want people to use Windows Phone then we need the popular apps from other platforms and, like it or not, Candy Crush Saga is one of them.
  • At last...
  • Snapchat and Clash of Clans are next on the list.
  • AOE:CS kills clash of clans. Plus its WP exclusive.
  • AOE:CS doesn't kill it, it's actually the other way round. It is a poor rip off of CoC. Obviously such rip offs are only on WP, and the originals are on iOS and Android. :p
  • So look @ ripoffs like mytube n metrotube which is better than original youtube app!!!
  • Except AOE as a game came first before CoC. So CoC is actually the copy...not AOE...
  • Dude, he's taking about the genre. CoC is not classic real time strategy. You're just comparing two IPs.
  • AOE domination is coming in january. so there are 2 version of AOE.
  • I will download just to pump the # up
  • LOL I do that too
  • Me too. I might even actually play a few rounds ;)
  • Me too.  I have never been interested in Candy Crush, never played it on my iOS or Android devices but I downloaded it for WP to support the download number and played a few rounds on my 1520. I then downloaded it to my 1020 and 635 and will text the link to my daughters so they can download it to their 920 and 635. My wife will have none of this candy crushingness to grace her 1520 as she has always been totally disgusted by the media attention even though she has never played it. I would like the Dreamcast version of Sega Swirl to come to mobile platforms. Come on, someone, anyone, make that happen.
  • Yes! Finally :D
  • Yes!! Finally you can fart in peace:)
  • I laughed
  • Thanks bro. My favorite video player is now on wp.
  • Excuse me?
  • Was that a syntax error?
  • Lol I laughed
    Mx player he meant?
  • I hope this is a universal game, like all new games should be for both windows and windows phone..  
  • Your the reason it's difficult to develop for WP but I agree I do love me some Universal apps.
  • No, it is not "difficult" to develop to WP, don't be a liar.
  • Dead trigger left too
  • Hey man games left . Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Dead Target is (imo) the exact game as Dead Trigger. Hell even the graphics are about the same. If anything I would truly LOVE for Deadzone to come to WP. That game is on FB, iOS, Android, Windows 7 and even Mac!!
  • No, Dead Target is not the exact same as Dead Trigger. It's obvious you've never played it.
  • Well, I've been playing Pastry Paradise on both my phone and PC, like everyday, several times a day, and I totally enjoy it!  It is such a cute and pleasant game to play.   I tried Candy Crush Saga at Facebook about a year or two ago, and after about 5 levels, just didn't understand the hype behind the game.  However, once I finish Pastry Paradise, I will revisit Candy Crush Saga.   Glad the game is available for those Windows Phone users who have been waiting for this game.  I'm going to download it to show support.
  • Pastry Paradise is way better than Candy Crush.
  • >frozen free fall
  • Wow 512 mb supported good job kings.You are very good. Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Ooh my god! Finally the 'shit' that millions of wp users have been waiting for has arrived..All hail MS!!!!
  • It came so early! Just how many years late!! May be 1 or more!! Hahah no one bothers about it now bored of it!
  • That's what I've been wondering. Didn't this come out 2 years ago?
  • My friend switched from android to windows phone and was asking whether this game was available. Now it is..
  • Now you can proudly say it
    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! :P
  • Yes,I do!
    *wedding bells ring*
    Lol
  • We also need Miniclip to join on in. I want that Pool game! unless you guys can give me an alternative..
  • Yeah me too. That is so needed
  • Arcadia 3d its got a collection of games pool,pinball,air hockey,chess,shooter,soccer good game
  • Thank you will try it out.
  • This!!
  • Now I can play it and hate it again lol
  • Oh Snap, my Wife's gonna have to eat her words after showing-off with her Note 3.
  • ONG FINALLY
  • Awesome! I can't wait to go see this "new" Avengers movie too!   I guess this is good but anybody who really plays this has already moved on.
  • That should shut up lot of mouths.
  • Noone cares.
  • I don't know who Noone is, but I'm glad he cares.
  • Just read half way through the comments and I am nearly making my ribs start aching... it's like all the comedians have flocked here
  • ^THIS !!!
  • Lol
  • I don't care about the game, but a friend of mine loves it so I'll get it so I can send her lives or however it works
  • Hey guys plz download it else king will unpublish it from the store citing no one downloaded the game. Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Realllyyyy!!!!!
  • As if i care! Huh!
  • If you want WP to grow we need the big developers ! It doesn't matter if you personally care, but if you want new people buying WP phones we need all the big games and other apps it is as easy as that !!
  • FINALLY FINALLY
  • Nooooooooo
  • Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!
  • I never played this game, but it's still a good news. Now I hope Microsoft can convince Supercell to bring their games to WP... Or just buy them just like with Mojang lol
  • Supercell hates WP. They won't get here until WP gains some visible market share.
  • This. I have bluestacks on my sp3 only for Hay Day. What a waste of resources.
  • Good news for wp, thought I don't play it.
  • Good for the ecosystem.
  • Cool. Finally I can convince my friends to switch to wp! :)
  • F*** yea
  • Too high on drugs huh?
  • I'll take it.
  • Finallyyyyy!!
  • Wtf finally
  • Much awaited ... Although not fond of games yet it's a response to all those who crib abt WP & praise android just bcoz it has candy crush
  • Downloading it right now!
  • This is such good news!  Word will continue to get around that Windows Phone is a huge market.
  • Weee cool i will olay this because i never played Candy Crush .BTW i still want Retrica .
  • I can die peacefully now!!
  • RIP brother
  • *crying*
    We'll miss u little bad@ss
  • LOL
  • Not available for Windows 8.1?
  • it's available sent from nokia lumia 920 WP8.1.1 PFD
  • It has always been available on W8.1... in the browser.
  • Lol
  • Super!!
  • Cell
  • I laughed :D via the WPC App on Nexus 5
  • Another great app in the shop store. Great work.
  • Oh good why??
  • Now I'll go and play this in a commons select committee meeting!
  • i don't get why people obsess over this kind of game but anyway next update in three years maybee :)
  • Finally
  • It seems faster
  • They're a big name developer. If they have success on Windows Phone, then, hopefully, more will come. I've never played this game (came from Maemo/Meego to WP) but I'll give it a shot to support the platform. All these companies just play "follow the trends." Let's try to make WP the next trend!
  • Great news!
  • Quite late, but it's ok, as long as more apps come to windows phone
  • Awesome! It's good to see those games finally arriving on WP. Wish they'd update Instagram, though.
     
  • Ugh just want denim to come out so I can play games on my 930 without it trying to melt my hand or my battery dropping 20% in an hour
  • Better late than never
  • Yah !
  • fuck off king. i don't want your game.
  • That's rude. At least appreciate that they are bringing their games to WP unlike Supercell.
  • Simple solution - DON'T.DOWNLOAD.IT!!! I swear, you bitchers and whiners are pathetic. Do you want to give back Instagram, Facebook, Angry Birds, Mint, Evernote and other popular apps that took a long time to reach Windows Phone as well? -_-
  • I agree with your sentiment, but Angry Birds was on WP from day one as were Evernote (which supports every platform- BB and Symbian among them) and of course Facebook.
  • YOU don't want it so you don't want others to have it either. Selfish, much
  • Confirm soda saga to be release 2020
  • No it may be released in 2018 not too far just 4 years. Posted via the Windows Central App
  • Finally!
  • Finally!! Hahah
  • What??
  • Hey, get the hell out of windows phone. When you earns, you didn't give a damn to WP. Now the game is getting old, you introduce WP version to extend the life cycle of the game. Get off from WP King.com! If you are really meant to support WP, bring the newest game, not this old little crap
  • Perhaps they eventually will bring about Candy Crush Soda Saga and other games, including future games. How about you quit bitching about getting this one? It's a start. It's people like you that kill any kind of joy the rest of us get in knowing that we've finally gotten one of the most popular and demanded apps on Windows Phone. Who cares if it's a bit late to the party? Better late than never.
     
  • I don't use my phone to play games but if I did it would NOT be this. 2 years too late but better late than never I guess...
  • Now can everybody, finally, stop bitchin' about this stupid game?
  • Uh, the irony! xD
  • Well played! XD
  • Finally
  • :)
  • Great news, i played it a bit back in the Day (when it was fresh) but its arrival to WP means things are changing
  • YES!
  • Please STFU about Xbox Live.
  • Finaaallly! Now to start converting the candy crush addicts to windows phone :P.
  • Long after everyone has moved on. . .
  • Buy supercell ...
  • This game is bad for our teeth.....
  • Not really. It just requires a little optimization, couple of tweaks and updates and it'll be healthy for your teeth.
  • I cannot believe this.. CCS arrived on WP....
  • Yeah, shall I punch to make you believe?
  • Cool, a competitor for pastry paradise
  • Finally it's here but already many of my friends have gone bored playing this for so long..... So no use
  • love u king
  • Another victory for Windows Platform. Interesting part is that long time followers are losing faith but new people are just witnessing the potential. Such is the way of life
  • Well.... The Candy crush saga is already over. People have moved on. These guys are here now because their market share ain't what it used to be. Funny to see that these guys are so desperate that they have decided to give us this game when its pretty much close to the end of a game lifecycle.
  • Agreed!!! Wp users are eating leftovers from both ios and android users. Im a wp user.
  • You could also be just happy that its here now. The Windows Phone ecosystem is'nt that bad for a platform that has only held between the 2.5 and 5% global marketshare for the last 4 years. Things are changeing, slowely yes, but they are indeed changeing. With the unified appstore, thats gonna be backed by the 1.5 billion desktop Windows users, in Windows 10 next year the Windows Store will be the third viable option for developers. The App-Gap wil be completely gone in 2016, and yes you will see the Windows Store logo right next to the App Store and Google Play in commercials. But for now, over 500.000 apps in the Store is great if you recognize the position in wich Windows Phone is today. Be happy, enjoy your Windows Phone for the amazing mobile OS it is, and remember that you where here first long before Windows 10 made it mainstream, you did set the trend! Be glad your not a blindeless iSheep or Fandroid, you saw something most people ignored and you may be proud of that!    
  • Have not seen figures anywhere showing how many are currently playing this. You say its already over, got any links to the decline of players?
  • I never said its over. I said that the game is in decline. Check online and you will find several figures. Here's one for starters.
    http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2014-11-06-candy-crush-saga-weighs...
  • Still not a fan.
  • Is just me that think that Candy Crush is just another case when MS bored so much the developers, pay a lot of cash, them the developers delivers their app/game and never updates it anymore??? Think about Instagram...
  • Yes, its just you :/s
  • Today I played this game for the first time and it's kinda cool :D I've got suden urge to eat sweets :D
  • Play Pastry Paradise much better gameplay and graphics
  • Thnx Sir for info :) I tired sugested game and I like it :)
  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Now Play Magnus please .. :P
  • This should be free!!! Oh wait...
  • Shit I hate this game so bad!!!
  • Finally! I'm installing it on my 920 and 810 as we speak! Just told my mother about it, but she's lost and claims she's only seeing the guide for download. She also doesn't have a QR code reader on her phone, so she'll have to wait until she returns home tonight to install.
  • After being stuck at level 55 for frozen free fall and sweet crush, it's time to play this one. Lol
  • I need candy crush soda candy crush saga is too old
  • Dont worry. After a few years maybe, that game will arrive on wp.
  • Finally, good news that we have it now on WP
  • Hard to believe ;)
  • Let the crushing begin!!!!
  • omg! I'm going crazy
    /s
  • Better late then never suppose
  • Isn't this like a really big deal for the platform? I have no idea about it personally, but people seem to be fanatic about this game.
  • A lot of good things happening for WP in the last few days..
  • I don't care about this game anymore really but at least it's on Windows Phone now because I love seeing the ecosystem grow with popular games and apps.
  • I successfully predicted this first. I found out just randomly searching the web.
  • Yeah!! Finally!!
  • Omg how fast these comments are coming in
  • Finally :/
  • You guys are the same ones talking about Microsoft needs to get rid of the parity clause fir Xbox one. Yet you biych and moan about candy poppers being late .. Hypocrites I say
  • Wow finally got it
  • I don't play the game in case I get addicted to it.. I'm afraid lol. Downloading it anyway
  • LOL
  • Yup! Another layer to shrink the so called app gap.....
  • Now I can die
  • Sure, carry on
  • Pics or it didn't happen.
  • Just before you do, let me know.
    I'll throw a flower at you. With a pot.
  • I'm happy for the fans of this game. Welcome to wp
  • Thank you
  • Yes!!!
  • Yeah! Now I can tell my friends to buy an Windows Phone.
  • If you couldn't tell them to buy one before this than there is a serious problem with either you or your "friends". Damn non believers. Smdh.
  • I hope all of King Games would come also soon on Windows Phone!!!! Waiting for Farm Heroes Saga!!!!  
  • Ya. I'm hoping this was King seeing what it was like. They now have some dev resources that have at least worked with Windows Phone...depending on their feedback to management, maybe this is the start of more to come.
  • Stupid game
  • Happy :)
  • Whooooooooa. Love you
  • Wow ...welcome to WP
  • Happy.... Level 665 on iPad...will play on wp now. Love you
  • Wow... Only two years too late. Here's hoping they update it, unlike other developers
  • Sweet....
  • That's what she said.
  • I guess, now its too late for saga.
  • Not sure if this is good or bad.
  • Yes. Finally!
  • Who play this!
  • A shit ton of people still.
  • Should have bought candy crush soda....
  • I honestly don't see the big deal with this game. It's a Bejeweled clone. Instead of jewels it's candy. Am I missing something?
  • You are missing sweetness instead of shine :)
  • The deep-in-your-butt Facebook integration. Nothing like constant game invites to make you hate your mates!
  • Damn some of the comments on this site are hilarious...
  • Or just completely stupid. Shows the intelligence of the human race.
  • "Some" ?
    Most of them are. This article in particular.
  • Huh it's late but I'm glad it's available
  • Well, I don't give a shit :P
  • Constipated much lol
  • Where are those fart apps!?
  • I won't play it now! But great! But it's now more of a thing of history! But still great! But.... Oh
  • Not really. Millions of people still play this game.
  • Ok, now king, you can lick that game if you want, too late to WP
  • Great news! Now I'm able to consolidate my addiction on my 930 too! Almost on level 300 and I can proudly say that I haven't spent a cent on it ;)
  • But im currently addicted to Pastry Paradise!
  • My life is now complete...
  • Non beta IG, clash of clans, snapchat, all line games :')
  • only supported for windows 8.1.. damm i am still on the portico and i love this game... hope it supports for 8.0 as well
  • Awesome
  • :o oh my gosh;
  • Look at her butt!
  • It's like so....
  • Hope to see it get XBOX achievement support in the future!
  • Yay :) I don't play this game, but I'm glad the game joined our store.
  • People should thank cross platform tools, like Unity, for this.
  • Very smooth.
  • Facing problems downloading this game through wifi even though internet is working fine. Anyone else?
  • For a game to take this long to come to WP it should be Xbox enabled as standard son.
  • Was so excited.... Then come to find out they are behind on levels. I'm at 756 online, and app only goes to 710 right now :(
  • To little to late
  • Arrived this late with no Xbox Achievements... King, you can go fuck yourself.
  • Hell man... Most games don't have Xbox support. It's just good to have a big name like King dipping their toe in the water.
  • Or you can just play Xbox for Xbox achievements...
  • Good.  I am going to download it on both phones, but I doubt i'll ever play it
  • can't sync with my Facebook, saying that no connection to the kingdom thingy smh
  • Need Top Eleven and Clash of Clans and any other game and apps that 512mb Ram Friendly
  • The one thing that keep WP different was that these stupid games where only on the toy iPhone and android.... There goes the neighborhood.
  • Really nice! Installed it on my mom's 620 and it works really well. Posted from The Dark Side.
  • The end is near.
  • Now lets see if I can delete my facebook board
  • YES!!
  • I assume the floodgates to Windows Phone adoption are now open. We should see a huge spike in raw sales and market percentage. I mean from all the "we neeeed this game" comments, I'll expect to see the switchers falling over themselves to buy a Lumia now. /s
  • I agree.
  • Yay! One less thing for them to dinner about!
  • I thought I kicked the habit and they just wanna stay me right in
  • Obviously all of Android games to Windows phone and Windows games to Android and ios. Good going...
  • The more the merrier...
  • Hilarious...not interested!
  • *Clash of Clans
    *Simpsons Tapped Out
    *Remaining Cut the Rope games
    *Peggle Blast
    *PvZ 2
    And then WP can finaly compete head to head with iOS and Android on gaming!
    And of course take advantage of the huge potential of XBOX integration that is superior of GameCenter and GooglePlayGames!
  • This will make a lot of WP users very heppy.  Good news for the platform and its not even 2015 yet.  Thanks Devs.
  • I can't stop playing this game!! Why everyone so obsessed with the Xbox title thing?
  • Because they are idiots.
  • I can't rest my facebook game, although I understand this is available in the app on other platforms. So lame.
  • The gameplay is just like MS Hexic,which is a lot better!
  • GREAT news but so so late.  And now everyone is playing the sequel (Soda Crush Saga), so we need that.
  • Finally can play this on wp??
  • Now is the time for future apps to arrive in sync with Android and ios...
  • Finally!
  • Phewww... It has been a long wait... ;) gonna download it right now $_$
  • I can't help the feeling that we as a wp users are like eating leftovers from ios and android users. Or apps that are trending on both ios and android arrives very very very late on wp. Left out to be precise.
  • But for me... Being a part of growing mobile platform gives me the same feeling watching my baby brother/sister grow :)
  • Synchronized, yeyi!
  • I'll download it to see what all the fuss was about, but I'd really like to see Angry Birds Friends. I have friends on other platforms who do play that.
  • People still play Angry Birds?.. o_O
  • And people will say the same about candy crush... "People still play Candy Crush?" In Dec 2015, a fad is a fad.
  • Excellent downloading now. Thanks King.
  • Now can send back requests for candy crush... Will also keep wondering why people play this game
  • This is great news!
  • SWEET!
  • Alright! Candy Crush Saga! Sweet! My mother likes this game and .. she cannot get it via her tablet because well .. its not avaliable in the country .. via tablet.Awesome work! Will they bring the Kim Khardasian App?    
  • Get. Out.
  • Excuse me!? How rude are you.
  • WHATB A DAY FOR WINDOWS PHONE ZYNGA POKER IS OUT ALSO  
  • Ugh, it's way behind the iOS app.  iOS has levels up to 755, Windows Phone is only up to 710.  I'm on 742, so can't play on my 928...
  • You spend way too much time on the game haha
  • No argument there!
  • AEO was founded in the 90's. Before you apple and android jerks could find customers to serve, MS was storming the world. If not for MS there wouldn't be google or apple but what can we say to ungrateful manners ?
  • Been playing pastry paradise and think its good and now tried out candy crush. Have to say runs much faster and smoother than pastry paradise. And in candy crush I can actually see my friends scores and where they are. None of my fb friends show up on pastry paradise. Gameloft would have a winner if they updated and fixed some bugs but until then I'm sad to say king did a good job with candy crush for windows.
  • Windows Phone: Where apps go to die. What happened? They lost marketshare and finally decided to throw us lowly Windows Phone users a bone? Seriously, I don't get this one though. I never really knew what it was. Downloaded it to see its basically Frozen Free Fall (which may be a clone, but is better) and Bejeweled before it. How did these guys get such a high valuation? Nothing innovative here... super confused.
  • Downloading, just for curiosity. Maybe the hype is true and the game is really fun.
  • Was pretty upset how terrible of a port Five Nights and Freddy's was, but this and Minecraft are both beautiful games. It's a good time to be a Windows Phone user.
  • Ita lol worthy how late wp gets these things
  • Woohoo I too can now send annoying fb candy crush requests!!
  • Too late, no thnx
  • Now I only need Supercell's Clash of Clans, then I'll be happy all the way!
  • "this app is not available for your device" HTC 8x on vzw so no 8.1. Good thing I stopped playing this last year. Also no Xbox support?
  • I want Crysis for my WP not candy crush. Fuck king for giving us the left over from IOS and android.
  •     Another one of the big games comes to WP. Better late than never.
  • Great. And with integration with facebook game. But what about Top Eleven game????
  • No xbox live, no download
  • Finally!!! Happy to see this!
    Though I hate this type of match-3 games.
  • My concern is how was this game brought to WP? Did Microsoft pay King to bring it to the platform? Or are some big name developers finally recognising the WP platform? Another question is how long we will have to wait for updates? I hope it's nothing like way ESPN treats WP. It kinda lags on my L928.
  • Oh my god windows got the candy crush saga i'm very exciting and playing wah thanks god and thanks windows
  • The game has no sound except music... Is it so everyone?
  • 2014 ending with good news for us waiting for windows 10 pfd next year
  • I don't play this remake of Bejewled.    Did you know they tried to sue Square Enix because Final Fantasy is a saga.   They also tried to Trademark the word "Candy" so nobody, not even in movies would be able to say it.
  • It's too slow, and still in level 710, we waited for this for too long and it's a failure
  • If this had come out a few weeks ago my wife would've finally made the switch to Windows Phone. She's a Candy Crush addict and just couldn't do it.
  • For those of you who say they don't care, you'd better if you want WP to gain any traction. We NEED these games. I've talked to people at the AT&T store in my area. This game alone is a common reason why many people buy a WP, then return it 2 days later. Just look at its rating- over there 500 reviews on the first day. That RARELY happens in the WP store- usually it takes a week or so to get that many ratings. I'm not a fan of the game, but I do understand that it's critical that WP has king.com's support.
  • I never played this game before, Iam playing Super sweet crush, Pastry Paradise and Frozen free fall, and now downloading this too as time pass between new lifes for all these 4 games... ;)
  • Sorry But they should of release candy crush soda instead of this.
  • Guys head to the store and download 1st update:-)
  • Touch screen goes dead on my Lumia 820 :(
  • Yes it's quite late for this game to come on WP as almost all people must have already played it and get over it, but still it's finally available for WP and who knows it's just an inception, may be king will realease all other games soon. Because it's common strategy to release the most popular game first and release others later.
     
  • Its about time too !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #hooray
  • Wow!!!
  • I have never really bothered to play the game before ever since it was lunched... Not the type of game enjoy playing
