Zynga’s FrontierVille and Café World appear at the top, but as is usually the case when Zynga’s older, larger titles appear on these lists, there’s no significant movement in their overall numbers.

Next up are the four Chinese-language games, which are diverse genre-wise, with poker, farming and role-playing all making an appearance. The tie that unites these games is that they’re all by Boyaa, with the exception of 創世紀2012. The two Chinese-language games coming in at numbers 12 and 19 are by Luv Online and Five Minutes.

Texas HoldEm Poker is a Zynga game that may actually be gaining even more users than it already has. It’s also quite possible that the growth is in fact from Chinese-language users; it has been about a month since Zynga released a version in Chinese, included within the original app.

MindJolt Games appears to be finally regaining some of the millions of users it has lost over the past few months. But it has a serious rival: Games, by GSN, is not far behind on the list, with a clearer long-term growth trend.
