One oddity of the iOS version of Candleman was that it released with only about a third of the levels that were available on other platforms, with those additional levels supposedly coming sometime in the future. I wasn’t really sure why they’d done a split release like that, but given how cheap the game was on iOS compared to other platforms I figured they’d charge for the additional levels when they became available, and since those levels were already finished and released on other platforms I wasn’t worried about them just never showing up as is sometimes the case with other episodic releases.

Again, I’m not really sure why this was a staggered release the way that it was, but I’m glad that the entire game has finally made its way to mobile, and for free to boot. As an aside, this update actually came out last week, but I wasn’t aware of it because iOS’s archive feature had actually deleted the game from my phone due to its size. I actually love that feature in general as it intelligently manages your storage and deletes big apps you haven’t used in a while while still retaining all the save data, but the side effect is that updates for those archived games don’t show up in the App Store. But better late than never! The iOS version of Candleman is actually on sale for just $2.99 right now, and with this latest update that price will land you the entire game, so now is a good time to check it out if you haven’t already.
