The Sims Social, Pioneer Trail Lead This Week’s List of Fastest-Growing Games by MAU

The Sims Social, the game formerly known as FrontierVille (Pioneer Trail), and Bubble Witch Saga make up our top three on this week’s list of fastest-growing games by monthly active users.

Farther down, we’re starting to see some new games work their way up the lists. Coming in at No.5 behind Adventure World is Metrogames’ Coco Girl, a fashion game that builds on many of the game mechanics with which other fashion titles have found success. The genre gets even wider at No.19 with Trendkiz, a Turkish-language fashion game from Peak Games.

At No.10 is Kixeye strategy game War Commander, which started its launch phase in August. It comes in just behind Kabam’s Edgeworld, a game that Kixeye claims is a blatant clone of its original real time strategy title, Backyard Monsters. Kixeye’s second game on our list this week is Battle Pirates at No.12.
