Zynga Slingo tops the list of fastest-growing Facebook games by MAU

Zynga Slingo managed to take the top position on our list of fastest-growing Facebook games by monthly active user, thanks to a 210 percent increase from 3 million to 5.6 million MAU.

Rovio’s Angry Birds took the No. 2 spot with 1.9 million new MAU for an 11 percent gain, ending its three-week reign as the top game on the list. Meanwhile, Draw My Thing continues to move up the list, breaking into our top ten at No. 9 with 400,000 MAU bump for a 19 percent gain. This likely has something to do with the popularity of its mobile sibling Draw Something and OMGPOP’s recent acquisition by Zynga. The future of Draw My Thing remains uncertain, since it’s been confirmed that a Draw Something is coming to Facebook.

Eight other games on the list had gain percentages above 20 percent: Hoop De Loop Saga is up by 33 percent; Solitaire Blitz increased 64 percent; Marvel: Avengers Alliance surged 27 percent; مدينة الأهرامات (“City of the Pyramids”) jumped 46 percent; French farm sim Super Ferme sprouted 23 percent; Astro Garden moved up two spots from last week with a 31 percent gain; and Soul Crash stayed in the No. 19 spot with its 43 percent jump.

Finally, Playrix’s citybuilding sim Township debuts on our list at No. 20. The game appears to have launched in July 2011, but only saw a max of 76,000 MAU in August before declining. This new growth could be part of an “official launch” pushed from developer Playrix’s website and by publisher 6L.
