Playdom's city building game on Facebook, Social City, launched on March 3, and roughly two weeks, later, the game already has 3 million players, says AppData. That's pretty impressive considering that other city building games -- namely My Town and My City Life -- both have around 4 million players and have been around for a few weeks longer.

One way to earn extra coins in the game by -- you guessed it -- visiting and helping neighbor's cities. Click on a friend's image at the bottom of the page to visit their city, and you'll be greeted with a pop-up window asking for your help. That help can be in the form of performing tasks like, say, helping save a kitten from a tree or -- new this week -- saving a city from a rhino rampage. To end the stampede, simply click the 'Help!' button, and you'll be rewarded with 425 coins for your efforts.
