Sims Social and Smurfs Still Battling it Out on This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Games by MAU

The Sims Social and The Smurfs & Co. are still in the lead on this week’s list of fastest-growing games by monthly active users. Zynga’s Texas HoldEm Poker winds up just behind them thanks to a daily active user spike begun August 25.

Zoo World 2, meanwhile, drops off the rankings this week as RockYou’s sequel slows down in growth. As of today, its MAU peaked at 9.4 million while DAU reached an all-time of 943,523 before stabilizing between 650,000 and 740,000 at its present-day levels. Note that Zoo World 2 appears as “Zoo World” on account of the sequel running via the original game’s app ID.
