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 Zombie Gunship and Texas Poker earning top iPhone sales, while Smurfs' Village and Sid Meier's Pirates! emerge as 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. Zombie Gunship ($0.99)
2. Texas Poker (Free)
3. Angry Birds ($0.99)
4. Zynga Poker (Free)
5. Top Girl (Free)
6. Tap Pet Hotel (Free)
7. Tap Zoo (Free)
8. Smurfs' Village (Free)
9. High Noon (Free)
10. Original Gangstaz (Free)

TowerMadness creator Limbic Software leads today's iPhone revenue charts with the recently released Zombie Gunship. Kamagames' Texas Poker climbs up to second place, as Angry Birds and Zynga Poker trail at third and fourth.

Crowdstar's Top Girl and Pocket Gems' Tap Pet Zoo also remain big earners, while Happylatte's High Noon and Addmired's Original Gangstaz return to the charts at ninth and tenth.

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

1. Smurfs' Village (Free)
2. Tap Pet Hotel (Free)
3. Sid Meier's Pirates! for iPad ($3.99)
4. Tap Zoo (Free)
5. Angry Birds HD ($4.99)
6. Texas Poker (Free)
7. Doors of the Mind: Inner Mysteries HD (Free)
8. Angry Birds Rio HD ($2.99)
9. Tiny Zoo (Free)
10. Fruit Ninja HD ($2.99)

Capcom's Smurfs' Village overtakes former chart leader Tap Pet Hotel in today's iPad charts, as newcomer Sid Meier's Pirates! ranks in at third place.

Big Fish Games claims seventh in this week's results with its hidden object game Doors of the Mind: Inner Mysteries HD, while Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja HD closes out today's chart at tenth place.
