Angry Birds Friends takes the top spot among this week’s fastest-growing Facebook games by DAU

Rovio’s Angry Birds Friends takes the top spot among this week’s fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active users, bringing in 467,893 DAU for a 36 percent gain. The game, which was originally conceived as the more social, Facebook version of the original title for iOS, now returns to mobile devices with the added features.

Pretty Simple’s Criminal Case came in at the No. 2 spot with 386,021 DAU for an 8 percent gain. The No. 3 spot went to Social Point’s Dragon City, which added 267,525 DAU for a 5 percent increase. Playdom’s Marvel: Avenger’s Alliance seems to be enjoying the increased publicity around the Iron Man 3 feature film, returning to the No. 4 spot after a long hiatus from the top 5. Finally, King’s match-3 game Farm Heroes Saga is slowing down from it’s massive debut, coming in at the No. 5 spot with 101,415 DAU for 2 percent increase, bringing it to an estimated total of 4.2 million DAU.

One other notable gainer this week is U4iA’s multiplayer first person shooter Offensive Combat, with 30,364 DAU for a gain of 56 percent. You can read our recent review of the game here.
