Candy Crush Saga developer drops 16% on first day, drop spreads to other mobile games

King will need to convince investors that Candy Crush Saga is the beginning, not the end. The company fell 16% by the close of trading on day one of its IPO. This means that right now, it is worth about a billion dollars less than originally believed. Other companies also felt the sting of King's offering. (Candy Crush Saga, Mobile)

The day they go under, is a day gamers everywhere should celebrate. I know I will, as they are a blight on gaming as a whole.

What a stupid move.

I truly hope this company/developer goes under. The way they have treated the rest of their peers is disgusting and I believe it won't be long before they've gone the way of the dodo bird.

I honestly believe with the new consoles out the whole mobile market is going to take a serious hit.

That seems a tad disheartening. If anything the mobile market is where a lot of smaller indies release their wares to test the waters to see how well they are received before jumping into the shark tank with consoles.

Mobile is on the decline its just how it goes. Im not saying its going to die but it's not going to be like it has been.

Mobile isn't on the decline, it's actually getting bigger. I'm not a big mobile gamer but it's foolish to say that the market is on the decline.

That's what you get for trying to sue everyone with CANDY or SAGA in their name.

Karma's a Bitch!

Agree, might want to correct "Kerma" to karma though. Unless you spelled it that way on purpose.
