Facebook released its list of 2014 top games as part of its annual Year in Review list, and “Candy Crush Saga” isn’t even in the top 10.
Instead, a similarly colourful puzzle game called “Cookie Jam” is number one.
“Cookie Jam” beat out other wildly popular games such as “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” “Klondike,” “Old Vegas Slots,” “League of Angels,” and “Sparta: War of Empires.”
“Candy Crush Saga’s” cousin, “Candy Crush Soda Saga,” was named the third top game. “Bubble Witch Saga 2,” which is produced by “Candy Crush’s” parent company, King, was named runner-up.
“Cookie Jam’s” dominance of the platform has been swift. The game only launched last May, yet rose to well over 5 million players on Facebook in a matter of months.
It consists of a magical world where players must complete baking-themed puzzles in order to proceed to the next level.
Like “Candy Crush Saga,” players navigate a vertical grid of colourful shapes which players can swap around to progress in the game. Players can also purchase in-app coins and boosters.
The game was developed by SGN (Social Gaming Network), which was by founded by MySpace cofounder Chris DeWolfe.
