FreshPlanet’s Song Pop took the top spot on this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by monthly active users, up by 1.1 million MAU for a gain of 141 percent.

Chinese-language role-playing game【猛將無雙】★★★★★ 超人氣!你的朋友都在玩 (“[Reggie unparalleled】 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ super popular! Your friends are playing”) took the No. 2 spot, increasing by 22 percent with an increase of 135,927 MAU. SGN’s Jewels of the Amazon came in at No. 3 with 100,000 MAU, good for a nine percent gain. Manuel Otto’s Stick Run snagged the No. 4 position with 100,000 MAU, showing a relatively small increase of two percent in MAU. Finally, CrowdStar’s It Girl completes this week’s top five games on the list, also gaining 100,000  MAU for a two percent gain.

Aside from Song Pop, three other games this week had gains larger than 50 percent. BILD.de’s soccer game mein Klub was up by 50,000 MAU, a 500 percent gain that is likely due to the Euro Cup 2012. THQ’s UFC Undisputed Fight Nation brought in 30,000 MAU for a 50 percent increase — again probably because of several recent, high-profile UFC fights, as well as the recent announcement that Electronic Arts had acquired the video game rights to the franchise. Finally, IGG’s 泰坦戰爭-首款3D大型網遊,全新引擎,史詩大作,超震撼視覺感受,遊覽眾古文明!★★★★★ (“Titan war – the first 3D large-scale online games, new engine, epic masterpiece, super stunning visual feelings, to visit all the ancient civilizations! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★”) snagged 20,000 MAU for a 67 percent gain, likely due to cross-traffic from its recently-launched Facebook MMO Moonlight Online.

Clarification: Jellyvision Games’s trivia game You Don’t Know Jack didn’t appear on this list due to a classification error on AppData; it would have taken the No. 3 spot with 130,000 MAU for a 325 percent increase. The error’s been fixed and the game will show up on future charts.
