Diamond Dash Slowing Down On This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by MAU

Playdom’s hidden object game, Gardens of Time, is at the top of our fastest-growing games by monthly active users for the second week in a row while wooga’s Diamond Dash sinks to number four behind Digital Chocolate’s Zombie Lane and King.com’s Bubble Saga. The Chinese language version of Boss Vegas, however, is the real story as the game appears at number five on our list just after claiming the top spot on last week’s top 20 emerging Facebook games.

Bubble Saga is a match type arcade game that classes out of our narrow definition of match-3 because it asks players to shoot at a “board” of bubbles clustered around a flower. Physics play a crucial role in the game as shooting at the bubble cluster causes the “board” to rotate accordingly, offering the player a different set of colored bubble targets. Look for our review of this three-week-old title later this week.

Stay tuned for our look at the top weekly gainers by daily active users on Wednesday, and the top emerging apps on Friday.
