Top 25 Facebook games of July 2012

June was a lot more active than May, based on the Top 25 Facebook games of July. Although both lists saw more declines than gains, there were more titles with increased traffic than last month and there also were a few new games debuting.

We’ll start by looking at the list of top 25 titles by daily active users, the best way to evaluate a title’s core audience. Four games showed gains over the past month, and five more showed no changes. The largest gain belonged to Bubble Safari, up 5.78 million DAU to 6.7 million.’s Candy Crush Saga is still climbing the charts, up 900,000 DAU. FreshPlanet’s SongPop and Peak Games’s Lost Bubble debuted on the list with gains of 1.78 million DAU and 710,000, respectively.

Zynga’s CityVille and Hidden Chronicles still show the two biggest losses on the list. CityVille was down by 2.2 million DAU, while Hidden Chronicles dropped 1.2 million.

It’s now time to turn our attention to monthly active users, the measure of a game’s overall reach on Facebook. Bubble Safari was again the big winner, gaining 25.6 million MAU and nearly unseating CityVille for the No. 2 spot. Hidden Chronicles also showed significant gains, up by 5 million MAU. Peak Games’s Lost Bubble also debuted on the list, gaining 4.8 million MAU.

The largest loss belonged to Zynga’s CityVille, which dropped 6.1 million MAU. Rovio’s Angry Birds Friends showed the next largest loss, down by 4.2 million MAU.

All data in this post comes from our traffic tracking service, AppDataStay tuned next week for the beginning of July’s Top 25 gainers and losers, when we look at the continued performance of games that appeared on the top 25 DAU list.
