Digital Chocolate’s newest game, Army Attack, debuts in the top five of this week’s fastest-growing games by monthly active users as tracked by AppData. CityVille is still seeing some growth, though the big Zynga spike seems to have mostly receded.
Beyond that, we’re seeing some strong performance from card games on this week’s list, particularly from the Okey type of game that resembles rummy. Recently, we spoke with Turkish developer Peak Games on the success the genre enjoys in both Turkey and the Middle East/North African region where cultural difference have a huge impact on the monetization rate of social games.
