Zynga Inc. Thursday announced the launch of Wonka’s World of Candy based on the iconic original feature film, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” Licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the new game expands the match-3 experience by incorporating exciting builder elements for players as they prepare the factory for its grand re-opening.
Wonka’s World of Candy challenges players, under the guidance of Mr. Willy Wonka himself, to complete a series of puzzles that allow them to win special rewards, unlocking both classic and never-before-seen rooms within the Chocolate Factory. In addition to the Match-3 puzzles, players can also customize their Chocolate Factory with vibrant candy-themed items inspired by the film and view their creations in 3D.
“Combining the best elements of two popular game genres allows Wonka’s World of Candy to deliver a captivating and unique mashup experience for players,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing, Zynga. “We can’t wait to see how this brand-new title evokes nostalgia and attracts fans old and new to this timeless classic through its imaginative gameplay.”
Players can download and play Wonka’s World of Candy for free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, on Google Play for Android devices, and on the Amazon app store for Kindle.
