Top-Grossing iOS Games:  Top Girl  Reports Big Earnings in Debut Week

Top-Grossing iOS Games: Top Girl Reports Big Earnings in Debut Week

June 22, 2011 | 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 Top Girl and Tap Pet Hotel earning top iPhone sales, while Real Racing 2 and Army of Darkness Defense 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. Tap Pet Hotel (Free)
2. Top Girl (Free)
3. Zynga Poker (Free)
4. Tap Zoo (Free)
5. Angry Birds ($0.99)
6. Texas Poker (Free)
7. Hanging With Friends ($1.99)
8. Smurfs' Village (Free)
9. Words With Friends ($2.99)
10. Infinity Blade ($2.99)

Pocket Gems' Tap Pet Hotel leads the iPhone's top-grossing app charts for the second week in a row, but faces new competition from Crowdstar's microtransaction-supported sim title Top Girl.

Zynga Poker and Tap Zoo also remain top earners, while Newtoy's Words With Friends sequel Hanging With Friends falls to seventh place after premiering at fourth last week.

Here are this weeks top-grossing iPad applications:

1. Smurfs' Village (Free)
2. Angry Birds HD ($4.99)
3. Tap Zoo (Free)
4. Angry Birds Rio HD ($2.99)
5. Texas Poker HD (Free)
6. We Rule Deluxe for iPad (Free)
7. Infinity Blade ($5.99)
8. Real Racing 2 HD ($9.99)
9. Army of Darkness Defense HD (Free)
10. Fruit Ninja HD ($2.99)

Capcom's Smurfs' Village and Rovio's Angry Birds HD once again rank as the iPad's highest-grossing games, with Tap Zoo trailing at third place.

Firemint's Real Racing 2 HD returns to the charts at eighth place, meanwhile, as Halfbrick's Army of Darkness Defense HD sees a significant increase in revenue since adopting a free-to-play model.
