Zynga’s Texas HoldEm Poker, 開心水族箱 (Happy Aquarium), and Ninja Saga top this week’s list of fastest-growing games by daily active users.

TV tie-in game Jersey Shore makes an appearance at No.8 just as the show on which it’s based prepares to enter its fourth season. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of growth the social game supports while new episodes air. The premier airs August 4.

開心水族箱 developer Happy Elements has a second game on this week’s list of DAU gainers with 森の物語 (Forest Adventure). The game is essentially a FrontierVille clone set in a jungle as opposed to the American West, though the style of the character customization feels distinctly different. It’ll be interesting to see if “regional reskins” like 森の物語 transcend the clone label on account minimal audience cross-over.
