This Week's Facebook Winners and Losers: The King.com SagaS

Now don't get too excited; Zynga is still on the tops of both the gainers and losers charts this week. CityVille 2 added nearly eight million users this week, but I want to talk about the two positions behind that, populated by a pair of games from King.com.

Candy Crush Saga gaining new ground is likely the result of the recently-released mobile app for iPhone and iPad, a wonderful example of cross-platform play, unlike Zynga's shoddy implementation of Ruby Blast on iOS. Pet Rescue Saga, King.com's latest colorful puzzler, gained in the millions as well, proof that the brand is becoming an increasingly major player in the Facebook gaming scene.

Now if you look down one more slot, there's the original FarmVille, gaining a million users while FarmVille 2 loses more than three million. Are players dissatisfied with the sequel coming home to roost?

Yeah, I just wanted to work in "coming home to roost". I feel much better now.
