Paradise Club dances on top of this week’s emerging Facebook games list

iZ’s Paradise Club debuted in the top position of our emerging Facebook games list this week, showing a 100 percent gain with 20,000 new monthly active users.

Two other games saw gains of 100 percent: CarGurus’s Cars (Car IQ) and Microcosm Games’ The One Ring. Cars (Car IQ) is an app designed to let car owners show off their vehicles, interact with the app’s community and play a trivia minigame that awards points for every right answer. The One Ring claims to be officially-licensed from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novels, but is surprisingly text heavy and has few visual elements during each player quest.

Happy Farm – Heroic Expedition climbed from last week’s No. 9 position to the No. 2 spot, thanks to a 29 percent increase MAU increase. The Chinese language versions of Galaxy Online II and Titan War, which also appeared on the last two weeks’ emerging games lists, didn’t show up this week because their MAU numbers stopped gaining and held steady since last Friday.

Criminal Empires jumped in at the No. 9 spot this week and is the latest game re-published by 6waves, as well as the latest example of the traffic a title receives once it’s under the company’s banner. The game launched in June 2011, with two traffic spikes and drops afterwards. Under 6waves, the game’s MAU gains are its most dramatic ever and don’t show signs of slowing down any time soon.
