Remember in the early days of Facebook, when when everyone was always 'poking' or 'throwing a sheep' at each other? That application was called SuperPoke!, and once more sophisticated apps like FarmVille rolled around, this one faded into the background.
Much to our surprise, it looks like SuperPoke! is making a comeback on Facebook in the form of two games: SuperPoke Pets! and SPP Ranch. The two SuperPoke games launched a while ago, but have both been gaining in popularity, picking up1 million new users last week, says AppData. Super Poke Pets!, much like all of the other pet simulation games on Facebook, involves adopting and caring for a virtual pet, and SPP Ranch puts players in charge of buying , raising and then setting animals free.
Both of these games are irresistibly cute, which seems like the main appeal for SPP Ranch and SuperPoke pets. The actual game experience is like most of the other Facebook games -- caring for your and friends' pets/farms to level up and earn coins, which can be used to buy items in the in-game store.
Other games gaining steam include My City Life, with 1 million new players last week, and Rock You's Zoo World (+700K last week), which has is one of the most popular games on Facebook with around 20 million monthly active users.
So, if you're bored with FarmVille, Cafe World or whatever other Facebook games you're playing -- give this foursome a try and see if they're worth adding to your regular social gaming rotation.
