In action-battle Facebook game Castle Rock, players travel to a land tormented by an evil dragon, and must rescue the world’s survivors while defeating their enemies before it’s too late.

If you’ve ever wanted to be like Cinderella, it’s likely the royal carriage and “happily ever after” you’re looking for, rather than chores.

Starting in the Royal Kitchen in the palace, players will learn to cook recipes, and yes, even clean, before moving onto other locations and duties.
Independent game developer Undercoders has announced the launch of the first episode of Video Games Quiz on Facebook. The game challenges players’ knowledge of video games by showing them screenshots from games and asking them to name them.

If you’re looking for traditional city-building gameplay on Facebook, but you’ve moved on from games like CityVille, Playkot’s Super City has an incredibly similar setup that might be perfect for you.

Big Farm developer Goodgame Studios has announced the upcoming release of its newest title on browser and mobile devices: Shadow Kings.

Independent game developer Blue Fondue has announced the worldwide release of Crossword Combat, a browser-based word game that sees users completing a crossword grid with any words that come to mind, so long as they fit into the grid’s horizontal and vertical letter placements.
In each game, players have two minutes to fill the grid, with certain letters offering bonus points and others resulting in penalties. For instance, using the letters O or P could offer bonus points, while using X takes away points. These letters are different in each game. In addition, each game has a required letter, which must be used in at least one word on the grid.
Game Insight’s Smiley Boom will soon make its way to iOS and Android devices, but until then, users can play the match-three game on Facebook. In Smiley Boom, players are taken to the town of “Smiland,” where players are introduced to the “Smileys,” groups of colorful orbs with their own personalities.
On each stage of the game, players are asked to complete certain requirements before moving onto the next area of town. These may ask gamers to earn a set number of points, remove special ice tiles from the board, and so on.
