The four million daily players will now be able to play Papa Pear Saga on the go.

The cross platform mini-game company has announced that it will launch its popular Facebook game, Papa Pear Saga onto mobile.

The news comes shortly after King revealed that it has surpassed one billion daily game plays across its impressive backlog of games on mobile, Facebook and

Riccardo Zacconi, CEO and co-founder of King, said: "Papa Pear Saga is different to any of our other games. it still possesses that core King puzzle quality, but it will be our first mobile Saga game to have a physics element which we think will translate very well to mobile and tablet game play."

The game will be launched with over 120 levels, and will enable players to access the game across Facebook and a mobile device, meaning they can play the game whenever or wherever they are - keeping their leader boards, scores and progress synchronised throughout every platform.

Papa Pear Saga involves a strange, brightly coloured fantasy world, where users shoot Papa Pear out of a cannon hitting certain targets and landing in the correct bucket at the bottom of the screen. 

The move onto mobile will no doubt expand the already massive amount of players, who access it through Facebook.

Zacconi continued: "It's also astonishing to see game plays grow to over one billion a day. This is a tenfold increase since out first Saga game launch on mobile this time last year."

The game will be available to download this month on iOS, Android and Google Play.
