King has four more games that appear in the top 100 apps: Papa Pear Saga, Pepper Panic Saga, Bubble Witch Saga and Pyramid Solitaire Saga.

3）Big Fish looks to go midcore, will publish debut F2P game from ex-Zynga Dallas team
by Jon Jordan
It’s best known for casual hidden object games and casino titles, but Big Fish is keen to demonstrate it can be successful in other genres.
That’s the thinking behind its announcement that it will be publishing the debut game from US start-up Boss Fight.
Created by the old Zynga Dallas team, including veterans from Halo Wars. Age of Empires and Castleville , Boss Fight is making as-yet unannounced midcore free-to-play experience.
Underpinning the deal is Big Fish’s veep of studios Chris Williams, who’s been leading Big Fish’s F2P charge over the past 18 months.
“Big Fish launched 5 F2P games in 2013 and more than half its mobile revenue stemmed from those products,” he revealed.
“In 2014, the company will be focused on launching hit F2P games – some in genres that may be unexpected. The game with Boss Fight is one of those surprises.”
David Rippy, Boss Fight’s CEO added, “We were impressed with Big Fish’s ability to take Big Fish Casino and scale it worldwide to the #1 grossing app in the casino genre.”（source：pocketgamer）
4）Social Point looks to mobile action-strategy genre to boost 2014 sales to $100 million
by Jon Jordan
Spanish social gaming company Social Point is looking forward to a big 2014.
Previously a strong Facebook publisher, it’s rapidly moving to mobile, announcing it has four titles in development, and its expectation to hit the $100 million-mark in terms of annual revenue.
Now comprising 180 staff, its games already have 50 million monthly active players.
In 2014, it’s looking to expand from its core expertise of breeding games like Dragon City and Monster Legends to what it labels ‘mobile action, social strategy’.
A time to fight
In this regard, the company’s next mobile launch will be League of Warriors, a real-time strategy game which gives players the full control of their armies.
And Social Point’s future mobile games will further deepen gameplay complexity.
“We understand the MASS category is underserved, and our next series of titles address a consumer segment that is hungry for more strategic mobile gameplay, built on competitiveness that can be played for months and years,” said CEO Horacio Martos.（source：pocketgamer）
5）DataPoint: Zynga Focuses on Mobile, Playing Catch-Up With King
Zynga is introducing some of its most-popular games to iOS and Android in a few select markets before officially launching them at the end of June. The social gaming developer is playing catch up with competitor King, which got into the mobile space sooner.
“Did the company miss a beat with the transition to mobile? Absolutely. Are we fixing that? Yes, we are,” CEO of Zynga Don Mattrick told Reuters.
The company’s acquisition of NaturalMotion earlier this year also signals a new focus for the company on mobile.
Even though Zynga has focused on Facebook, King has been outperforming the company there, too. This year alone, King’s DAU/MAU engagement has increased by 17.1 percent, while Zynga’s DAU/MAU is up only 0.7 percent, according to research from AppData.
Candy Crush Saga, King’s most popular game, is up 5 percent in DAU/MAU engagement this year. FarmVille 2, Zynga’s most popular game, has grown 1.6 percent in DAU/MAU engagement in the same time period.
