TGWK’s Free App of the Day (05.20.11) – Candy Train

Candy Train is the second game from Popcap’s experimental division, 4th & Battery. Candy Train is actually an old Popcap game that came and went, so 4th & Battery saw fit to resurrect it for iOS. I played a bit of it this morning and it’s a much better game than their first release, which was some kind of weird horse game. Anyways, this game is free but is so good that I actually wouldn’t mind paying for it. It’s fun, addictive, and can be very challenging. You can pick it up here. It’s a universal app so it’ll look good on any of your iOS devices.

Welcome to the second game from 4th & Battery.

Candy Train was an old and nearly forgotten PopCap title from many years ago. However, an aspiring game programmer, working in a different part of the company, loved Candy Train and thought it would be a great game for iPhones, iPod touches and iPads and so she started working in her free time to create a new version specifically, for these devices. She poured equal amounts of sweat, tears and love into this iOS adaptation of Candy Train and we think it’s great enough to share with the world.

And, by the way, the powers-that-be were so impressed that Sophia now works as a game programmer in PopCap’s game studio! We hope you enjoy this second release from 4th & Battery….

Sweet, glorious candy is popping up everywhere. Don’t ask us how it happens! The best part? You’re a conductor on a train that collects it. But whoever built the train track didn’t get hugs when he was little, or failed basic engineering. So it’s up to you to simultaneously drive the train while piecing the track together and collecting the candy. If you can’t clear a path for your train in time, your train will come to a sad, sugar-coated demise. Time is running out. What do you do? What. Do. You. Do?
