Ubisoft leads this week’s list of fastest-growing games by monthly active users with the newly-launched The Smufts & Co., a city-building game based on the 1980s cartoon franchise. Not far behind are Zoo World 2 and Gourmet Ranch from RockYou.
The rest of our list this week is a mix of old and new titles covering everything from old hat restaurant sims to TV tie-in social games. To that last point, we’ll be keeping an eye on Jersey Shore this month as MTV is now airing the show’s fourth season.

Don’t be confused by the presence of two Smurf game apps on Facebook. The Smurfs’ Village is a promotion for Capcom’s mobile city-building game that redirects off Facebook to a site where customers can download it for iOS devices. The Smurfs & Co. is an actual Facebook game built and run by Ubisoft, which owns the rights to develop the game on Facebook and potentially for social networks as well. Stick around for a full review of The Smufs & Co. later this week.
