Two Developers Dominate This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by MAU

This week’s AppData list of fastest-growing Facebook apps by monthly active users is once again a Digital Chocolate playground. Since we’ve had so many opportunities to note the company’s growth recently, we’ll save our words for the other games and simply note which ones are from DC: Hollywood City, Vegas City, Island God, Epic Fighters and Millionaire City. Note that these five may soon be joined in their growth by yet another new game, Ninjas Rising, which even moreso than Epic Fighters is a redesign of MMA Pro Fighter.

Here’s the full list of 20 titles:

Ravenwood Fair is the first game from someone other than DC. The LOLapps title has become by far the most successful title ever from that developer, which is a good thing indeed for LOLapps, since the company’s other apps are more or less dead. The title has reached its height of four million MAU even faster than the next app, Crime City, did so.

Simply Hospital is benefiting both from a unique (to Facebook) game style and from promotion by its publisher, 6waves. However, the hospital-management game is showing a low percentage of daily players out of its MAU, which could be a problem in the future.

The other developer besides Digital Chocolate to land more than two games on the list is Wooga, which placed older games Bubble Island and Monster World as well as its newest title, Happy Hospital. We recently heard from CEO Jens Begemann that ads account for only a tiny percentage of growth, but the lack doesn’t appear to be hurting these three titles.
