Facebook’s Popularity Skyrocketing With “CityVille”
Posted by pratyushkp
Facebook has long been on limelight. One of the reasons for this is the interesting games available. Facebook’s game developers seem to know the pulse of the users very well. According to recent survey, the latest game “Cityville” has become most popular/famous application on Facebook in less than a month, exceeding Zynga’s previous hit “Farmville in all areas. The core game dynamic of CityVille is click-to-do. Click to build, click to collect, click to plant, click to harvest, click to deliver supplies. It’s reminiscent of the PC game Black and White in that although you are ostensibly the manager of the city, you actually do a lot of manual labour. This new game is popular with 16.8 million daily active users and is adding thousands of new users everyday to facebook.
“Before we were figuring out how to make social games, now we are mastering the art of making social games,” said Mark Skaggs, said the vice president of product development at Zynga which is the social games company behind Facebook games. He also added,” The next generation of FaceBook games will have deeper gameplay, more polish, and be much more and better social experiences.”
