King has just issued a couple of updates for Pet Rescue Saga and Bubble Witch Saga.

Released last June, Pet Rescue Saga challenges you to match blocks in order to rescue adorable pets from the dastardly Snatchers. For its part, Bubble Witch Saga, which was released in July last year, has you shooting bubbles to fend off the dark spirits that are plaguing the Witches’ country.

Pet Rescue Saga has just been updated with a new map and 45 new levels across three new episodes, namely, The Mystic Path, Sandy Puddles, and Pixie Hillock. It has also gained a new Hybrid gameplay mode, a new Paint Brush booster, and a new pet to rescue, the bouncy bunny.

On the other hand, Bubble Witch Saga has been updated to enable you to fight the Lord of Shadows in the Shadow Realm and vanquish him once and for all. It has also gained a new Eternal Isles episode and support for saving the help you’ve received from your friends so that you can check it anytime in the notifications inbox.

The new versions of Pet Rescue Saga and Bubble Witch Saga are available now in the App Store for free. Both games are compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later.

Of course, Pet Rescue Saga and Bubble Witch Saga are but two of King’s popular freemium casual games on iOS. King has officially released three games on iOS: the aforementioned two and the highly addictive match-three game Candy Crush Saga, which has been reported to have 6.7 million active users and to earn the developer around $633,000 per day.

Last week, King soft-launched its fourth “Saga” game on iOS. Initially available in the Canadian App Store, the new game is called Papa Pear Saga. Papa Pear Saga is a physics-based puzzler inspired by the popular Japanese pachinko game.
