Puzzler Media to bring Candy Crush to print

Lynda Newland: "We’ve captured the fun challenges of the wondrous Candy Kingdom."

Produced by Puzzler Media, in conjunction with King, the creator of the Candy Crush franchise, the new magazine replicates the fun of the game by combining authentic images and striking colours with all-new puzzle challenges, say the publishers.

Neil Flockhart, Managing Director at Puzzler Media, knew the puzzles had to do justice to one of the most successful gaming brands on the planet. He says, “We know the millions of Candy Crush fans across the globe love puzzles so we’ve used the best brains in the business to create some unique, never-seen-before puzzles exclusively for this magazine.”

King’s Licensing Director, Claes Kalborg, commented on the move from digital to print: “It perhaps bucks a trend for technology to be reversed this way, but it makes a lot of sense for these two worlds to come together and we’re excited about taking Candy Crush to the UK in printed form.”

Puzzler’s Sales & Marketing Director, Lynda Newland, talks about teaming up with the creators of the Candy Crush franchise: “King want to secure the best-in-class licensing partnerships and it’s a tremendous honour that they have entrusted us to deliver a complementary product to be proud of. We have an army of puzzle enthusiasts who are committed to pen and paper and we’re confident that we’ve captured the fun challenges of the wondrous Candy Kingdom.”

The magazine contains a variety of easily understandable puzzle types including visual favourites such as spot the difference and mazes, all set in the Candy Kingdom.

Candy Crush Puzzles costs £2.99 and is 64 pages.
