Zynga Slingo wins big with this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by DAU

Zynga Slingo is proving to be as appealing as Inside Social Games writer Pete Davison predicted in his review, topping this week’s chart of fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active user with 1.83 million new DAU (a 389 percent gain).

The only other game this week with a percentage gain in triple digits was Solitaire Blitz, which took in 240,000 new DAU for a 100 percent gain. meanwhile, three games on this week’s list had gains over 50 percent: Elex’s Chinese city-building game 夢想城市 (“Dream Boss”) was up 52 percent, Redspell’s Astro Garden increased by 57 percent, and Landshark Games’ Aviator gained 60 percent. Aviator has seen a recent resurgence; the game launched in September, but quickly seemed to drop off the radar after a brief spike in traffic. Now, it’s drawing more players than it did in September, with 80,000 DAU (the previous peak was 47,375).

Three other games on the list had gains of five percent or less: Hidden Chronicles with 3 percent, Tetris Battle by 3 percent, and Collapse! Blast with 5 percent.

OMGPOP’s Draw My thing is continuing to benefit from all the attention Draw Something is receiving on mobile devices. The Facebook game drew in 30,000 DAU this week, a 16 percent gain.
