With all the new game apps released in Apple App Store, Google Play and other app marketplace, Candy Crush Saga continue to dominate the top list as more people, especially women, get addicted to the game. Also, the widely-successful mobile game Candy Crush app is earning almost $633K every single day.

The Independent reported that females, with ages from 25 to 55, who are playing games on a tablet device or smartphone, has higher chances of playing Candy Crush Saga. King Limited, the creator of Candy Crush app has identified this specific demographic as the most loyal players of the game.

This insanely famous game is impressively soaring up the app charts even though it is merely just a 'carbon copy' of Bejeweled Blitz, which is also one of the most successful casual puzzle games. Aside from the increasingly difficult levels and game play of Candy Crush, the cute cartoons and the spellbinding and hypnotic music and sound effects of the game are also huge factors why the game app is so enjoyable.  

PC Mag noted, "the music is worth mentioning because, like the game, it's enjoyable but becomes annoying over time. Loud and bombastic, the music swoops at you until it's hard to take. Using only the cutest instruments-rag time piano, triangles, auto-harps, etc.-it's surprisingly lush, to the point of overkill."

Candy Crush app is free to download but it has in-app products that can be purchased. Because of these in-app sales of Candy Crush Saga, King's game is now one of the most successful and top-earning apps. Latin Times, citing Slate, reported that Candy Crush Saga's daily revenue is nearly $633,000, which equates to more than $230 million every year.

Candy Crush Saga app is available to download from Apple App Store and Google Play, and can be played as well as a Facebook app.
