FarmVille grabbed headlines this week as it was the first Facebook application to reach 80 million users. In fact, its closest rival, Birthday Cards, has 47 million users but still lags a good 20 million behind the champion app.

FarmVille's nabbing 3 million extra users was no doubt helped by the publicity that Zynga's game recieved following its success, as it is unusual to have such a massive amount of extra users feature in the weekly growth charts.

SPP Ranch!, then, has some way to go to catch up, but distinguishes itself from other farm-themed games by focusing on cute animals rather than economic prosperity - a cross between the gotta-train-them-all of Pokémon, the unrelenting animal cuteness of the I Can Has Cheezburger and Cute Overload photo websites, and the usual Facebook-friendly gaming formula.

Restaurant Life is the newest game from Crowdstar, whose most successful game is Happy Aquarium, and the 'beta' suffix indicates that it is a work in progress, yet still open to new customers.
