Despite recent efforts to revitalise the game with an element of progression, Ruby Blast Adventures digs itself a two-million-player hole in this week’s Facebook winners and losers.
Maybe the thrill of adventure is wearing thin, or perhaps the recently released mobile version of Ruby Blast is sucking players away from the browser-based version of the game. Either way, losing 15 per cent of its fan base in a week can’t be good.
And you know what they say, one man’s loss is another man’s gain — only in this case both men are Zynga.
