[In this weekly column, Gamasutra rounds up the most popular paid and free gaming applications on the Android Market as of today, with Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Asphalt 6 and Great Little War Game currently ranking among the platform's top downloads.]

This week's top paid titles are:

1. Great Little War Game ($0.10)

10. The Sims 3 ($6.99)

A Google-sponsored promotion commemorating the Android Market's 10 billionth download dropped the price of many-high profile titles to 10 cents over the past week, and many apps saw greatly increased sales as a result.

Great Little War Game reports the biggest sales of any featured title this week, as Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Asphalt 6, Flick Golf, and Fruit Ninja also finish in the top five thanks to Google's 10 cent sale.

Here are this week's top free Android game applications:

1. Angry Birds
2. Words With Friends Free
3. Angry Birds Seasons
4. UNO Free
5. Angry Birds Rio
6. Fruit Ninja Free

Rovio's Angry Birds once again leads the Android Market's free charts, with Newtoy's Words With Friends Free trailing at second place.

Gameloft's UNO Free sees renewed popularity at fourth place, meanwhile, as newcomer Shoot the Apple enters the top ten ahead of longtime favorite Shoot Bubble Deluxe at ninth place.
