Now with 4 million daily players, Bubble Witch Saga has officially blown up on Facebook, (Don't you love it when puns actually work out?) King.com's flagship game has been on a growth curve for the past month, and the London-based social games maker wants to keep it that way. The developer announced that Bubble Witch Saga is now available on Google+ Games.

"King.com's mission is to bring quality games to players across the globe via any platform," King.com CEO Riccardo Zacconi said in a release. "Integrating the Google+ game API made it simple to port Bubble Witch Saga over to the network. We are looking forward to having more of our popular games extended to the platform."

However, it still begs the question, why Google+ now? "I guess [Google's] announcement of its 90 million customer base gives us a sense of the momentum," King.com CMO Alex Dale tells us. "And I'm sure Google is committed to finding lots of inter-operative ways of knitting their different products together, and some of those are bound to get traction."

According to Dale, the Google+ version of Bubble Witch was created by the same King.com team that handled its Facebook version. Porting the social game was simple, thanks to King.com's "elegant technical infrastructure that allows new games to be deployed with relatively little bespoke back end coding," Dale tells us. King.com claims that Bubble Witch Saga has been played 1.5 billion times since its launch, and another place to play can only boost that mind-boggling number.
