becomes King, unveils Papa Pear Saga and Farm Heroes Saga


In celebration of its 10th year in business, has been rebranded as just "King," complete with a new logo and outlook for the future. The Bubble Witch Saga developer sees over 108 million monthly players across its catalog of games, with 49 million of those players coming from mobile platforms. Along with the new name and player stats, King has also unveiled two new games in the insanely popular "Saga" franchise: Papa Pear Saga, and Farm Heroes Saga.

"We have had lots of fun over the last 10 years making great games and we are honored to have acquired such a loyal fan-base. The exceptional growth of our mobile, Facebook, and cross-platform audience is a testament to the care and craft that goes into our games," said Riccardo Zacconi, co-founder and CEO of King, via a company release. "We're pleased to announce two new Saga games on Facebook with Papa Pear Saga and Farm Heroes Saga. These games build upon our Saga portfolio with new concepts that players are sure to enjoy."

Papa Pear Saga will instantly look familiar to fans of PopCap's Peggle, as the game challenges players with dropping balls into black and white buckets at the bottom of the screen while bouncing off of acorns that fill up the center of the screen. Once a bucket has been filled, it will light up, and levels end when all of the buckets are filled with color.

Over in Farm Heroes Saga, players will be greeted with the familiar match three gameplay they've seen in games like the developer's Candy Crush Saga. In each level, gamers will be asked to collect certain numbers of fruits, vegetables, and even sunshine or water by making matches of three or more like symbols.

Both of these games are level based, with leaderboards allowing you to instantly compare your scores with those of your friends and replay levels to increase your previous high score. We'll have complete reviews of both games in the coming days, but for now, you can try both of them for yourself for free on Facebook.
