About this project

My name is Albert Ransom CEO/Founder of Runsome Apps. I created a little game as an indie developer in 2010 called CandySwipe in memory of my mother who passed 5 months earlier. I would like to raise enough money to take my current CandySwipe game and completely rebuild it from scratch by updating/replacing all the assets, artwork, animations, and adding new features to give CandySwipe the polished look and feel it deserves so it can better compete with the likes of Candy Crush Saga. I want to keep it a completely free experience for the user meaning no paying to continue etc. it may show ads and have an option to remove ads as the current version of CandySwipe does. 

The new game will include:

-more dynamic game play, added features while sticking to the core players enjoy.

-multiple themes in new dynamic level selection and saved levels

-complete graphic redesign while sticking to the core look and feel

-added animations to make the game feel more alive

-multiple achievements

-updated theme music and sound effects

-updated social integration to better compete with friends and family

A brief summary of the new theme:

The current CandySwipe game is basically a timed game where you connect as many candies as you can before time runs out. The new game will keep this premise in mind, however, it will be reformatted to take you through the course of a year with different challenges and themes along the way. For example, the game will start with a series of levels with a Spring season theme which will include spring time themed candies (think Easter) and challenges. Followed by Summer, Fall, and Winter. The new game will also offer an "Arcade" option that will have the "classic" CandySwipe game play and challenges for the hardcore loyal CandySwipers.

The game will be a free app for iPhone/iPad, and Android devices, therefore it will be available to all for free. However, we will offer a code to unlock any premium version to ALL backers of this project.
