Angry Birds tops this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by DAU

Rovio’s Angry Birds takes the top spot on this week’s fastest-growing games by daily active users. In the past seven days, the game’s DAU increased by 147 percent.

In terms of growth percentage, though, the big winner this week is Marvel: Avengers Alliance, which saw a gain of 500 percent. Between Angry Birds, Marvel: Avengers Alliance and New In Town, three games on this week’s chart had gains above 100 percent. Fruit Ninja Frenzy, Hoop De Loop Saga, Zynga Slingo, Bubble Atlantis, Bayou Blast and Draw My Thing all posted gains over 20 percent for the week.

Meanwhile, Miscrits of Volcano Island returns to our list. While the game is still holding steady in terms of MAU, its DAU have been gradually winding down since late January. This week, however, we’re seeing a 50 percent uptick. This could be due to the “Volcano Early Releases” Miscrits (which includes a new limited edition Miscrit that can be earned by winning 25 tournament battles) that were just unveiled.
