The latest fast-growing strategy game has hit the top of this week's AppData list of emerging Facebook games, which includes titles still under a million monthly active users. Ikariam - The free browser game exploded upward this week, capturing 651,192 new users.
Ikariam contains elements of other games on Facebook, like City of Wonder and Kingdoms of Camelot, but it's also fairly unique for the platform. There's a reason for that: Ikariam is a popular web-based MMORPG whose first version was released way back on 2006, pre-dating social gaming entirely.
Critter Island is the second fastest grower, having accelerated significantly from last week, when it led a weaker list as number one. The island management game, by LOLapps, has gotten almost uniformly positive user reviews since its launch.
