Social game developer Broken Bulb Studios has announced the development of Ninja Warz: Factions for iOS and Facebook. The game is a sequel to the company’s popular Ninja Warz title from 2010, and is part of the company’s increased focus on mid-core titles.

As a result of the game’s development, and the costs incurred therein, Broken Bulb is looking to make some extra cash by selling one of its existing Facebook games, the casual puzzle game Bake Shop Drop. The game took off in early 2013, and was relaunched as an updated experienced last October.

In the game, users are asked to clear groups of three or more matching pastries by dropping pastries manually from the top of the screen. Pastries can match diagonally, vertically or horizontally, and are removed until a single level’s goal is met, or players run out of moves.

According to our app tracking service AppData, Bake Shop Drop has over 517,000 monthly active players, but that number is on the decline, as the game had 731,000 users on April 20.

The game’s sale listing on Flippa notes that Bake Shop Drop generates over $31,000 per month. Bidding for the complete game starts at $250,000, but if you’ve got the budget for it, the game can be yours right now for $650,000.
