All right, so maybe Unpleasant Horse wasn’t quite the success that 4th and Battery would have liked to kick the new PopCap sub-studio off with, but that’s kind of the point — the idea of 4th and Battery is for the company to experiment a little more, rather than having every single game they release live up to the PopCap reputation. And that means faster releases as well — the company’s second game is due out on the App Store this week, and it’s called Candy Train.
This is actually an older game — it was originally released as a Flash title on PopCap’s website and pulled soon after, to players’ chagrin. But a few developers decided to revamp it for iOS, and it’s coming to the App Store as a free download. The idea, as you can see above, is that you need to rotate small pieces of track to keep a train running, and it seems fun enough.
4th and Battery also has a third game on tap, which will also be free, and we’re supposed to see it later on sometime this summer. Exciting!
