Top-Grossing iOS Games:  Kingdoms of Camelot  leads iPhone sales rankings

Top-Grossing iOS Games: Kingdoms of Camelot leads iPhone sales rankings

April 18, 2012 | By Danny Cowan

Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store. This week's U.S. revenue charts see Kingdoms of Camelot and Poker by Zynga earning top iPhone sales, while DragonVale and Slotomania HD remain big sellers on the iPad.

These charts allow end users to see who is making the most money on the App Store that day. It differs significantly from the Top 10 Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies.

Data comes courtesy of Apple's public sales information. All titles in the App Store's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings.

This week's top-grossing iPhone titles are:

1. Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North (Free)
2. Poker by Zynga (Free)
3. DragonVale (Free)
4. Slotomania (Free)
5. Draw Something ($0.99)
6. Texas Poker (Free)
7. Angry Birds Space ($0.99)
8. Kingdom Conquest (Free)
9. Bejeweled Blitz (Free)
10. Flick Home Run ($0.99)

Kabam's social city-building sim Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North takes top honors in this week's revenue chart following the well-received release of a major content-expanding update. Poker by Zynga trails at second, as DragonVale takes third after finishing at second place last week.

Last week's highest-grossing title Draw Something reports a significant drop in sales this week, landing behind Playtika's Slotomania at fifth place. Angry Birds Space falls to seventh after placing third last week, as Infinity Pocket's recently updated Flick Home Run returns to the charts at tenth.

Here are this weeks top-grossing iPad applications:

1. DragonVale (Free)
2. Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North (Free)
3. Texas Poker
4. Slotomania HD (Free)
5. Angry Birds Space HD ($2.99)
6. Poker by Zynga (Free)
7. Slotomania (Free)
8. Bejeweled Blitz (Free)
9. Smurfs' Village (Free)
10. Modern War (Free)

Backflip Studios' DragonVale reclaims the top spot in the iPad charts after being beaten last week by Angry Birds Space HD. Kingdoms of Camelot reports strong microtransaction sales at second place, as Kamagames' Texas Poker follows close behind at third.

Playtika earns two chart spots this week with Slotomania and Slotomania HD, meanwhile, as Capcom's Smurfs' Village trails PopCap's Bejeweled Blitz at ninth.
