Just yesterday, we brought you the news that Playdom has brought Social City to the Android, and today we can add another Facebook title to that list. In other Facebook news, we see that Playdom has now passed CrowdStar in terms of overall user numbers.
Happy Island Now Available on Android
Back in early July, Sibblingz and CrowdStar released Happy Island LE on the iPhone, and this week, they’ve added the Android platform to the list of available options for your portable Happy Island needs.
Just like the iPhone version, Happy Island LE on Android costs $0.99. For that price, you’ll be able to collect profits from your attractions, travel between your islands, pick up trash, and even visit your friends’ islands, all while on the go, in the palm of your hand.
If you’d like to purchase Happy Island on Android, you can do so by clicking on this link. If you’re sketchy about spending real money to download the app, remember that Android users are allowed to purchase and subsequently refund those purchases if not satisfied. Also note that at this time, Sibblingz is aware of issues being experienced by Droid / Droid X users when playing the game, and that they are working on a fix – keep that in mind when trying to play the game!
Playdom Now #3 Facebook Game Developer
Our friends at Games.com have picked up on an interesting development in the world of Facebook games – that being that Playdom, newly acquired by Disney, has passed CrowdStar to take over the #3 developer spot in terms of overall user numbers, according to the most recent AppData figures.
Playdom now has over 43.8 million monthly active users playing their games, to CrowdStar’s 43.3 million. While this number might seem impressive, we have to keep something in mind – that being that Playdom has 36 applications under its ever-expanding catalogue, while CrowdStar controls just 15; that’s more than double the amount of apps.
Playdom now sits directly behind EA (Playfish), which is in second place with 54.9 million monthly active users, while Zynga obviously sits in the top spot, with a whopping 226.7 million monthly active users. For a comparison, EA controls 34 apps to Zynga’s 52.
Another interesting stat to take from this? Zynga’s FarmVille has more users, at 62 million, than Playfish/EA does across its entire catalogue of apps.
