Top 25 MySpace Games for January 2011

Top 25 MySpace Games for January 2011

Three RockYou titles have suddenly disappeared from the MySpace app gallery, including the previous #7, #10, and #14 apps: Truth Box, RockYou Pets, and SuperHug!. The RockYou website also no longer promotes its MySpace games. Back in October, the company laid off part of its workforce; the MySpace disappearance could be another possible cut-back.

With RockYou gone, three applications reappear on the top 25: Fashion Wars (Zynga), What My Friends Think About Me (Grong!), and Pet Society (Playfish). This is the biggest change over last month, although several apps grew significantly:

  • Crime continues to pay with Playdom’s Mobsters gaining close to 38,000 new installations, with Zynga’s Mafia Wars trailing at #2 with a gain of 8,518.
  • BitRhymes holds steady on MySpace with its selection of five applications, including Tag Me at #5. The app boasts over 8.4 million users in total. BitRhymes’ lowest app comes in at #17 with Whats my Impression on friends, with around 2.9 million users.
  • SuperPoke Pets, from Slide, moves up to #8 with the loss of RockYou’s Truth Box. The game gains over 9,000 new installations for a total user count of approximately 7.1 million.
  • The middle ranks of the top 25 still find themselves filled with role-playing titles from Zynga and Playdom. At #10 and #11 are Vampires (5.3 million users) and Street Racing (4.6 million users), and at #13 comes Sorority Life (3.7 million users).
  • Coming in at #19 is the last standing RockYou game, Speed Racing. Earning 2,632 new installations this month, it totals out at just under 2.6 million users.
  • Fashion Wars reappears at #23 with a total of 1.9 million users with What My Friends Think About Me, from Grong!, trailing with 1.7 million.
  • Wrapping up the list is the long running Playfish title, Pet Society, who currently plays host to approximately 1.5 million users.
