In the details of its ordering and the specific apps shown, this week's AppData list of fastest-growing Facebook games by monthly active users is much like last week's list. The difference is that the week delivered about 50 percent more growth on average than the week before:
ESPNU College Town, It Girl and Millionaire City are in much the same position they held before. Of course, the first two are new games, by Playdom and CrowdStar respectively, so every day they can extend their fast growth is a bonus to their long-term survival. Millionaire City, a comparatively older Digital Chocolate game, is becoming something of an anomaly, accelerating even as it passes 10 million MAU.
Crime City, by Funzio, blew past the million MAU mark this morning. This new graphical version of a standard Facebook RPG appears to have piqued user interest. Of course, while at first Crime City seems like an obvious idea - why didn't anyone else think of making graphics-based mafia games? - there's also more to the title, including a Zynga-esque mashup of collection and city-building mechanics alongside missions.
