Planet Domo Appears in Our Orbit on This Week’s List of Emerging Facebook Games

Domo, a highly recognizable mascot from Japanese TV, makes his way to Facebook this week with the launch of Planet Domo from San Francisco-based developer TheBroth. Meanwhile Hero City and Army Attack vie for the top spot on this week’s list of emerging Facebook games.

It might be time to say goodbye to Army Attack this week as its growth trajectory puts it above the 1 million monthly active user mark, which would class it out of the emerging Facebook games category. We could perhaps expect to see it replaced by Zynga’s newly released Empires & Allies, assuming the game doesn’t hit 1 million MAU in its first seven days. You can read our early looks at both games here and here.

Planet Domo appears to be a treasure hunting adventure game where players click on locations to find pieces of postcards that “unravel the mystery” of a mythical cheesecake. The game features a highly animated art style and numerous types of standard currency to spend in-game. Facebook Credits make up the game’s premium in-game currency.

Farther down the list, we see Dragon Age Legends gaining some ground, perhaps as the result of new quests recently added to the game. We also see several new games gaining growth in their early days, so sit tight for early looks on Battle Cards, TinierCafe, and Hotshot next week.

All data in this post comes from our traffic tracking service, AppData. Come back next week for our top weekly gainers by monthly active users on Monday, our daily active users on Wednesday, and the top emerging apps on Friday.
