OMGPOP’s Draw Something surged to the top of this week’s list of fastest-growing games by monthly active user. Over the past week, the game’s MAU increased by 148 percent (and likely made OMGPOP even more tempting for potential investors).
Rovio’s Angry Birds, meanwhile, was knocked down to second place, though its MAU gain was nearly six times higher than Halfbrick’s Fruit Ninja Frenzy, which sat in third place.
Aside from Draw Something, three other games had gains greater than 100 percent — Marvel: Avengers Alliance, Zynga Slingo and مدينة الأهرامات (“City of the Pyramids”). Marvel: Avengers Alliance seems to still be tapping into legions of comic fans who are looking forward to the Avengers movie in May. City of the Pyramids is Kobojo’s PyramidVille, localized to Arabic. According to Peak Games (which is handling the publishing efforts), the game will soon feature region specific elements like quests and virtual items.
