King’s Bounty lords over this week’s emerging Facebook games

Nival and KranX Productions’s strategy game King’s Bounty: Legions took the top spot on this week’s list of emerging Facebook games with 20,000 monthly active users, a 33 percent gain.

Boomz’s role-playing game MMOG Boomz saw a 40 percent increase and came in at No. 2 with a 20,000 MAU increase. Shikha’s Pillow Fight took No. 3 with yet another 20,000 MAU gain, though this one was for 33 percent. 6waves’s newly-launched The Grinns Tale surged this week with 15,991 MAU for an 800 percent increase and came in at No. 4. Finally, Wedge Buster’s Wedge Buster Sports placed at No. 5 with 10,000 MAU for a 25 percent gain.

The majority of the remaining games on this week’s list saw gains of 33 percent or smaller, but three titles did have gains of 10,000 MAU for 50 percent increases: IGG’s Portugese-language Galaxy Online II – “O” Jogo de Estratégia (“Galaxy Online II – ‘The’ Strategy Game”), Manatee Games’s BabySitter and Mandala’s La Riviera – Slot Machines.
