Zynga Continues to Dominate Facebook Gaming
As the popularity of social gaming continues to climb it is interesting to see which games are proving the most popular with gamers.
At present the most popular game on Facebook is Zynga’s ChefVille.
In just the last week an impressive 8.8 million people have started playing adding to the existing user base of 55.5 million players.
Another of Zynga’s games, Slingo, has enjoyed a recent surge in popularity.
Two weeks ago it had just 13.2 million players, however, that has now grown to 43.6 million with 7.9 million players joining in the last week.
Nonetheless it is not all good news, while player numbers are rising, the number of active daily players is steadily dropping.
Another of Zynga’s latest releases, Farmville 2, is growing relatively slowly. Despite being the sequel to one of the most popular social games around, it’s not yet attracting large player numbers with only 640,000 at the end of last week.
Outside of Zynga, Kixeye’s War Commander was the fast growing game last week. It is a “mid-core” MMO real-time strategy game and had attracted 3.9 million users just a few days after it was launched.
While it is not yet competing with Zynga, Kexeye is certainly worth keeping an eye on.
