Monopoly Millionaires is still going strong in the number one position in this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games based on monthly active users. EA’s familiar title gained a large amount of new players over the last week: almost 1.2 million according to AppData (our platform for analyzing the top Facebook games). In just a month and a half, Monopoly Millionaires has shot up to just under 3 million MAU and is still growing at a rapid pace.
Popcap’s Zuma Blitz is also growing steadily after a few weeks of decline. We took a closer peek at this casual game in last week’s leaderboard, and it has now gained another 820,000 MAU to bring it to a total of 5.7 million MAU. Finally, Ravenwood Fair is still on the rise although its pace has slowed significantly.
Top Gainers This Week – Games
Komşu Çiftlik (a Turkish language game that translates to Neighboring Farm) has spent some time on our radar. The game developed by TheBroth is a farming game that feels similar to titles like Country Story and FarmVille. It is a highly polished farm sim with a heavy emphasis on collecting animals and harvesting crops. Released in December, Komşu Çiftlik has 2.8 million MAU and seems to be growing steadily enough to surpass 3 million MAU in the coming weeks.
Super Billares is a Social Point developed billiards game in the Spanish language. It is one of the first pool playing games that has gained momentum, with 755,000 monthly players. Most of its traffic appears to be from marketing at this point after a sudden spike last week and very low retention percentage (Super Billares is only retaining 5-10% of their monthly players each day). Non-English games appear to have a lower barrier of entry for developers as there are successful English language games that have still not been localized for other countries. Super Billares plays more like a casual arcade game that you would find on a gaming portal such as Yahoo Games or Pogo.
