This Week's Facebook Winners and Losers: Candy Crush Saga Gets What It DeservesS

I spent an inconveniently substantial portion of last night trying to clear away gels in one level of King.com's Candy Crush Saga. Knowing that an additional million people are experiencing the same frustration this week makes me feel better.

The King.com / Zynga competition is really starting to heat up, thanks in no small part to the former's excellent mobile implementation of Candy Crush and Bubble Witch Saga. Zynga recently released a mobile version of its Bubble Witch clone, Bubble Safari, which is hopefully much better than its iOS version of Ruby Blast, which has done absolutely nothing to stem the loss of Facebook players.

Of course I am not here to pick sides. I remain completely impartial as King.com prepares to kick Zynga's butt all over Facebook.
