Top-Grossing iOS Games:  Jurassic Park Builder  sees strong sales in debut week

Top-Grossing iOS Games: Jurassic Park Builder sees strong sales in debut week

August 1, 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 DragonVale and Kingdoms of Camelot earning top iPhone sales, while Bingo Bash HD and Jurassic Park Builder 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. DragonVale (Backflip Studios, Free)
2. Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North (Kabam, Free)
3. CSR Racing (NaturalMotion, Free)
4. Slotomania (Playtika, Free)
5. Rage of Bahamut (Mobage, Free)
6. Poker by Zynga (Zynga, Free)
7. Minecraft: Pocket Edition (Mojang, $6.99)
8. Tap Paradise Cove (Pocket Gems, Free)
9. Bejeweled Blitz (PopCap, Free)
10. Jurassic Park Builder (Ludia, Free)

Backflip Studios' DragonVale and Kabam's Kingdoms of Camelot lead today's iPhone revenue charts, as NaturalMotion's CSR Racing remains a strong seller at third place.

Rage of Bahamut drops to fifth place after heading up last week's sales results, while Ludia's recently released sim title Jurassic Park Builder makes its chart debut this week at tenth place.

Here are this weeks top-grossing iPad applications:

1. DragonVale (Backflip Studios, Free)
2. Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North (Kabam, Free)
3. Bingo Bash HD (BitRhymes, Free)
4. Slotomania HD (Playtika, Free)
5. CSR Racing (NaturalMotion, Free)
6. Jurassic Park Builder (Luda, Free)
7. Smurfs' Village (Capcom, Free)
8. Tap Paradise Cove (Pocket Gems, Free)
9. Modern War (Funzio, Free)
10. Slotomania (Playtika, Free)

DragonVale and Kingdoms of Camelot also dominate this week's iPad charts, leading over BitRhymes' microtransaction-supported Bingo Bash HD.

Jurassic Park Builder reports an impressive debut week on the iPad at sixth place, while Smurfs' Village returns to the top ten at fifth after a recent content-expanding update.
