Top-Grossing iTunes Games: Updated Infinity Blade Returns to Top Ten
March 9, 2011 | By Danny Cowan

Every week, sister iPhone and iPad site FingerGaming rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra.

This week's U.S. revenue charts see Infinity Blade and Tiny Wings earning top iPhone and iPod Touch sales, while Angry Birds HD and Fruit Ninja 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 selling games chart, which 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 and iPod Touch titles are:

1. Tiny Wings ($0.99)
2. Angry Birds ($0.99)
3. Infinity Blade ($6.99)
4. Tap Zoo (Free)
5. Original Gangstaz (Free)
6. Words With Friends ($2.99)
7. Smurfs' Village (Free)
8. Zombie Farm (Free)
9. Call of Duty: Zombies ($4.99)
10. Original Gangstaz Rock (Free)

Chair's Infinity Blade ranks among this week's top-grossing iPhone games, following a recent update adding new content and features. Andreas Illiger's Tiny Wings remains the platform's top overall seller, followed closely by Rovio's Angry Birds.

Addmired captures two chart spots with its microtransaction-supported multiplayer online game Original Gangstaz, as the free-to-play hits Tap Zoo, Smurfs' Village, and Zombie Farm report big earnings in today's results.

Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications:

1. Angry Birds HD ($4.99)
2. Smurfs' Village (Free)
3. Infinity Blade ($5.99)
4. Scrabble for iPad ($9.99)
5. Lil' Pirates (Free)
6. Texas Poker (Free)
7. Fruit Ninja HD ($2.99)
8. Plants vs. Zombies HD ($6.99)
9. Cut the Rope HD ($1.99)
10. Angry Birds Seasons HD ($1.99)

Angry Birds HD reclaims the top spot in today's iPad charts after being overtaken last week by Smurfs' Village. Infinity Blade also emerges as a strong seller this week, as EA's Scrabble for iPad and Capcom's free-to-play Lil' Pirates trail at fourth and fifth place.

Other top sellers in this week's chart include Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja HD, PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies HD, and Chillingo's Cut the Rope HD.
