More New Games Top This Week’s List of Emerging Facebook Apps

Games fill all five of the very top spots on this week’s AppData list of emerging Facebook apps, defined as those still under a million monthly active users. But a few interesting non-game apps are growing as well, a bit further down the list:

Hollywood City has added over half a million new users to Digital Chocolate, which also has Vegas City and Island God on the list. The first two are reskins of Millionaire City, while Island God is new. Digital Chocolate has been on a tear over the past month or so; it has another new game just out, called Epic Fighters, which resembles its game MMA Pro Fighter.

Pogo Games is also worth a look. This Electronic Arts portal leads to a number of casual games, like other portals, but EA owns enough well-known IP to make its offering significantly different.

Intelligent Elite is the list’s first non-game app. The app uses IQ and EQ (emotional quotient) tests to draw users in; when they’re done, they’re directed on to membership at the Intelligent Elite website, which bills itself as a dating site for smart folk.

Moving down, TravBuddy.com Countries Visited Map follows a well-worn path, having users mark where they’ve been on a world map. And friend.ly, the last app we’ll point out, is a connection tool for Facebook users to find people they don’t know in real life — something the social network itself has generally tried to avoid.
