Steady Gainers Keep Rolling on This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by DAU

This week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active users is a mix of new, fast-growing games and older games that appear to be rallying their DAUs. But we’ll spare you any suspense — PetVille, Pet Society and Texas HoldEm Poker, all near the top of the list, haven’t made any real gains. The first two, especially, are simply making up for more intense drops earlier in the month.

Here’s the full AppData list:

FrontierVille is doing fine, if not gaining heaps of DAU anymore (at least by Zynga standards). The real story for the game, though, is that Zynga appears to have done a fantastic job with user retention — the game’s DAU as a percentage of MAU is steadying around the 30 percent mark, half again as high as many other games.

At number two,  開心 Lounge Bar is a restaurant-management game that, obviously, is in Chinese. Way down at number 19, 德州撲 克 is Chinese-language as well, but it’s a Texas Hold’em game.

Millionaire City, by Digital Chocolate, is still growing like mad, as is Baking Life, though the latter is a bit slower and older. The same applies to Fashion World and Nightclub City, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that all three of these titles have continued steady growth for longer than the average title.

Finally, Office Wars is an interesting new title from Broken Bulb Studios, which was previously successful with My Town and Ninja Warz. We’ll be reviewing the new game a bit later this morning.
