Starting about a week ago, Digital Chocolate began blitzing Facebook with new titles. Three of them have appeared on top of this week’s AppData list of emerging Facebook games still under a million monthly active users: Hollywood City, Vegas City and Island God.
Here’s the full list:
Top Gainers This Week – Games
|8.||CSI: Crime City||751,403||+186,258||+33%|
|12.||Game of Truth||148,938||+138,042||+1,267%|
|16.||Clash of Kingdoms||209,487||+121,541||+138%|
Hollywood City and Vegas City are, of course, retreads of Millionaire City, which has been Facebook’s top city-building game for a couple months now. But Island God, which we reviewed near the end of last week, is an original island-building game.
Pogo Games is continuing up the charts as well. This Electronic Arts app, named after one of the company’s older digital groups, is a portal, which isn’t exactly unique on Facebook. However, Pogo does have some exclusive IP like Scrabble to help it gain traction.
Moving down a bit, Vegas appears not so far under Vegas City, and is actually a city-building title as well. It’s easy to see what’s driving Vegas: the game looks great, favorably recalling the best art in Sim City. It’s the first title listed for developer Vitamin Games.
The other brand-new title to catch our eye this week also brings Digital Chocolate’s latest efforts to mind: FameTown, which sets players in a Hollywood game with its roots in text-based RPGs. However, the Diversion, Inc game is a significant evolution on that theme, and well worth checking out.
