Top-Grossing iPhone Apps:  Doom, Red Alert  Challenge  Rock Band

Top-Grossing iPhone Apps: Doom, Red Alert Challenge Rock Band

November 6, 2009 | By Danny Cowan

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

This week's U.S. iPhone revenue charts see EA's mobile version of Rock Band leading over Command & Conquer: Red Alert and a recently released port of id Software's classic FPS Doom.

This relatively recently-added chart allows 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 U.S. App Store titles are:

  1. Rock Band ($9.99)

  2. Command & Conquer: Red Alert ($9.99)

  3. Doom Classic ($6.99)

  4. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99)

  5. Skee-Ball ($0.99)

  6. Tetris ($4.99)

  7. NBA Live ($9.99)

  8. Madden NFL 10 ($9.99)

  9. Scrabble ($4.99)

  10. The Sims 3 ($6.99)

Examining this week's charts, EA's multiplayer music simulation title Rock Band takes the top chart spot for the third week in a row, but faces tough competition from Command & Conquer: Red Alert, which saw a successful debut earlier this week.

id Software's iPhone port of the classic first-person shooter Doom places third in its first week of release. Bejeweled 2 drops from second place to fourth in today's rankings, while Skee-Ball moves up to fifth place.

Tetris also sees a slight drop in popularity this week, while EA's sports sims Madden NFL 10 and NBA Live maintain consistent daily sales. Scrabble recovers to take ninth this week, as The Sims 3 closes out the chart at tenth place.
