King.com brings its popular "Saga" series to Facebook with Candy Crush Saga. A downright saccharine marriage of match-three and Candy Land. The sixth "Saga" Facebook game to come from London-based casual games portal is available now for all to play.

Candy Crush Saga is based on Candy Crush, available on King.com's web portal. Players are tasked with helping Mr. Toffee and his daughter, Tiffi, travel through 65 levels in a Candyland-like world, solving candy-themed match-3 puzzles and acquiring items for candy recipes. Candy Crush Saga monetizes similar to the other Saga games, with extra lives and gameplay-boosting charms.
Candy Crush Saga will eventually be playable via open web, Facebook, and mobile devices; somewhat like King.com did with the match-3 game Miner Speed. Unlike Miner Speed, Candy Crush Saga won't offer crossover experiences: CMO Alex Dale tells us the Facebook and open web versions play significantly different from each other. Dale also tells us the various Saga games will be launching for mobile devices in the near future, coming to as many platforms as possible. The titles are expected to launch for iOS and Android devices, but King.com CEO Riccardo Zacconi recently showed us Bubble Witch Saga on the Kindle Fire, too.
