Three Facebook games that should be on your radar this week
Social media app tracker Appdata just published this week's Top Twenty Gainers in the social game space. In other words, these are games that should be on your radar as they could get popular rather quickly.
Not to mention a good amount of these titles break the mold of the traditional--yet extremely effective--business, city or farm management games. Let's take a look at some of the top, unique games that are gaining traction this week.
In first place right now is Lucky Train by A Bit Lucky, a game that tasks you with managing a train station by allowing trains to come into your station and loading them with passengers. You can expand your rail empire by adding new routes, connecting routes with friends and adding houses to your county surrounding the station. Think of it as a new twist on the average city management game.
This week's second place game is inspired by one of your favorite game shows, The Price is Right by Ludia Inc. While it's still in beta, there's no reason why this gem couldn't become one of Facebook's more popular games. You start in the audience and are given five chances to become a part of the contestant's row. Everything happens in real time and games will fill regardless of how many friends you have playing the game. If you fail to get down to Contestant's Row, you can still spin the Big Wheel for extra cash. You can even win a trip to a taping of the real show in Los Angeles. It's always a plus when your in-game exploits result in real rewards.
Lastly in fourth place, Bubble Town: Party Planet by I-Play shows promise in that it requires much more skill than most social games. Bubble Town plays a lot like classic titles such as Snood or Bubble Bobble, but allows you to share your achievements. If you're looking for a title that won't require your constant attention, then look no further than Bubble Town: Party Planet.
So, there you have it. Three games that will most definitely break the doldrums of tending to the crops and baking cakes.
Let us know what you think of these titles in the comments and let us know if you find any notable games off our radar.
