Weekly global mobile game charts: Voodoo and Lion Studios battle it out for top spots

To give our readers better insight into the global mobile games industry we’ve teamed up with market data firm Sensor Tower to bring you brand new, exclusive weekly charts from key countries.

These rank games by free downloads, paid downloads and the top grossers across the App Store and Google Play. Each week we’ll be covering the US, Great Britain and Ireland, and China (iOS only) markets.

This week's charts cover the period from September 10th to 16th.

US charts

Lion Studios held on to top spot of the App Store and Google Play free download charts for the week, while its new title Big Big Baller claimed second and seventh positions across the stores.

Epic’s Fortnite held its position at the summit of the App Store top grossing rankings, while Pokemon Go pipped Candy Crush Saga to the top of the Google Play chart.

King meanwhile continues to have two titles in the top 10 across the App Store and Google Play, the only company to do so.

Great Britain and Ireland charts

For the week beginning September 10th, Voodoo’s 2 toppled Lion Studio’s Happy Glass on the App Store to claim first place in the free download chart. Lion Studios remained top on Google Play, however.

New entrants to the top 10 of the free download charts across platforms for the week included Lion Studios’ Big Big Baller, Voodoo’s Wall Clean and Soccer Kick, and Kingsoft’s Bricks n Balls.

In the top grossing rankings meanwhile, while King’s Candy Crush Saga continued on at the summit of the App Store top 10, Niantic’s Pokemon Go usurped Candy Crush’s leading position on Google Play.

China charts

PUBG Battlegrounds took to the summit of the App Store free download chart for the week, taking over from Lion Studios’ Happy Glass.

New entrants to the download rankings were Tencent’s Championship Football and Lemon Jam’s Monster Wife.

Not much changed amongst the top grossers, with Tencent still claiming seven spots in the top 10 and Honor of Kings leading the way.
