Zynga’s latest game, virtual aquarium simulation FishVille, has swollen by 6.72 million users over the past week to reach 16.0 million monthly actives. Behind it is the company’s FarmVille virtual farming game, which has consistently been adding new users even though it is already by far the largest third-party app on Facebook. It gained 2.24 million to reach 66.8 million monthly actives.
Not on the list but also a game is Happy Pets, the new pet-caring simulation from CrowdStar. It grew by an impressive 2.07 million last week to reach 2.94 million. The first game to launch after CrowdStar’s big hit, Happy Aquarium, the game and the developer both look like serious contenders.
LOLapps continues to push out graphically-pleasing role-playing games, with a new one called Champions Online growing by all of its 723,000 users this past week, and Diva Life continuing to surge, too. Band of Heroes and Yakuza Lords also continue their strong performances.
