Zynga Apps Take Over This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Facebook Games by DAU

Several months have passed since Zynga last ruled our weekly AppData list of fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active users, but with the addition of CityVille to its ouevre the developer is back. Not only did the city-building game bring in new players, but Zynga has also managed to pull a bit of fresh blood into its older apps, too.

Here are all 20 games:

FarmVille, Texas HoldEm Poker and FrontierVille helped CityVille’s gain of a million DAU out with about 1.5 million more. Of course, most of those players are brand-new, and it will take time to see how many stick around. Even if they do, it’s hard to budge Zynga’s overall DAU:

MindJolt Games is showing its first uptick in some time this week; the company released its AdJolt advertising platform a few weeks back, and may be planning to pump fresh life into its flagship app.

At number six, Family Feud appears to be improving its stickiness, evidenced by a rise in DAU against its steady drop in monthly active users. Despite losing almost two million MAU and about 350,000 DAU in the past few months, Feud is still by far the most successful game show app on Facebook, and has managed to avoid losing any DAU at all over the past month.
