This week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active users is our first list in a week, due to Facebook’s monthly active user stats having been down for some 13 days. However, DAU is still being reported.
MindJolt Games leads off the list with a whopping 15 percent increase in DAU over a single week, pushing its DAU count ahead of games like Social City and Country Life. In the past, MindJolt has had a relatively low DAU as a percentage of MAU, at least compared to other game apps, but that seems to be gradually changing.
Here’s the full AppData list of 20 games:
|4.||Kingdoms of Camelot||636,047||+62,230||+10.84|
|8.||The Agency: Covert Ops||48,851||+43,534||+818.77|
|18.||Classic Word Games||17,516||+15,247||+671.97|
|20.||Bike Mania 4 Micro Office||66,745||+13,224||+24.71|
Like MindJolt, Ninja Saga is a somewhat older game that’s making significant gains. Unfortunately, in absence of the MAU stats, we can’t tell whether this particular game is gaining only DAU, or if it’s suddenly bringing in a rush of new players. The answer is more likely to be new users, though.
Following Saga, we can see several newer games. Nightclub City has been steadily advancing since its release about a month ago, while My Empire is the latest Playfish game, and appears to be doing modestly well. Baking Life, which we just reviewed on Monday, focuses in on the bread-making business; it’s from a small developer called Zip Zap Play.
Moving down past Family Feud, which has been growing for weeks, The Agency: Covert Ops is a new spy game from Sony Online, which has been increasingly active on Facebook this year. Much further down, Monster World, by Wooga, is also worth pointing out. The monster-themed farming game has been helping to prove that fads never die on Facebook; they just need a little sprucing up from time to time.
