Facebook is jam packed with applications of every variety. Some are fantastic and some are pointless. If you’re looking for a hardcore game, you certainly won’t find it on Facebook. However, if you’re a casual gamer, you can find loads of fun applications to play. This is a short list of some of my favorites.
I’m sure most of you have seen the game show, if not, just trust me when I say this is a great application modeled after a very fun television show. Like most Facebook applications it wants to involve your friends, so it allows any of them to play the second part of the Fast Money round, as long as you publish the opportunity to your wall. This is one of my favorite applications.
This is a great application in which you dig around islands looking for treasure. During your digs, you also spawn little side games. I was playing this one before Zynga launched it’s wildly popular Treasure Isle application, they are pretty similar in concept, but I’ve always preferred Treasure Madness.
Bubble Town: Party Planet
For those of you that enjoy bubble burst games, you will love this application. It has a fun spin on the mundane bubble games. The sound effects and graphics are sometimes just hilarious. I really enjoy this application; it’s a great time killer.
This is a nice, fresh take on the food type applications, because in order to make a specific dish, you first need the ingredients. You can get ingredients from neighbors, you can grow them, or you can buy them. You also hire waiters and cooks, and you can decorate the inside of your restaurant as well as the outside.
This is not an application itself, but rather it’s a company that has created several extremely fun and well maintained applications. I felt it deserved its own listing, as all the applications I’ve played by Zynga are great. Some of their games include Farmville, Frontierville, Mafia Wars, and Cafe World. In my opinion, Zynga has created some of the best applications on Facebook.
