1，Matt Knights and Dean Loades, former employees of Fruit Ninja studio Halfbrick, have launched their own indie studio called Protostar. Its first game, a free-to-play mobile title, is due for release this month.
The new studio is based in Brisbane, Australia and was founded back in June.
“Protostar was co-founded by two former Halfbrick veterans, Dean Loades (Programming) and Matt Knights (Design/Art),” says the studio’s site.
“Combined, they have over 15 years of game development experience. The pair set up shop in one of their homes with the simple goal of creating fun game-play experiences. Protostar’s first game is a free, mobile game called Checkpoint Champion.”（source：gamesindustry.biz ）
2，King has today announced the launch of Candy Crush Soda Saga on iOS and Android devices. The game was released on Facebook in October, and is a sister title to the company’s massively popular Candy Crush Saga. In Candy Crush Soda Saga, players are presented with new symbols, a new way to make matches, new level goals and more.
In Candy Crush Soda Saga, players complete each level by making matches of three-or-more like symbols in horizontal and vertical rows. New to the game is the square match, which also allows players to clear symbols by making a match of four symbols in a square. This particular match results in a fish symbol, which, when activated, will clear a random square elsewhere on the board.
Candy Crush Soda SagaWhile similar to its predecessor, the game does has five new level types. One level may ask players to fill the background of the board with soda, by making matches with special soda bottle symbols. This adds a unique element to the game, as the board fills from the bottom of the screen, rather than new symbols dropping from the top. Another level type asks players to help free gummy bears trapped under ice blocks, while yet another challenges players to help a floating bear reach a certain height on the board with the help of soda. Two final level varieties see players working to free bears that have been stuck in honey, and clearing all of the chocolate from the board.（source：insidemobileapps.com）
3，Social games company Plarium has announced the launch of Magecaft: The War on iOS and Android devices. The game was originally released on Facebook in June 2014, where it has surpassed two million players, each working to build their own medieval kingdom and defend it against their rivals.
In Magecraft: The War, players are taken to the world of Argento, which once saw peace among the races of dwarfs, elves and even orcs. That peace has dissolved over time, and it’s up to players to rescue the land’s people and restore the kingdom to greatness.
Magecraft: The War mixes city-building and strategy gameplay. Players build their kingdom by balancing the use of key resources, including food, iron, lumber and stone. These items are used to build barracks and other military structures, farms that product more food, mills that product lumber and so on.
Players will construct many buildings relating to the military, with most buildings unlocking one particular unit type for recruitment. For instance, the Dungeon of Souls is used to train Phantasms, while the Swordsmen’s Post unlock the Swordsman unit, and so on. These buildings can be upgraded, which increases the stats of their associated unit type.（source：insidemobileapps.com）
