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 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 April 29th to May 5th.
Supercell's classic mobile game Clash of Clans returned to the top spot across the App Store and Google Play for the week of April 29th, thanks to the introduction of Season Challenges and the Gold Pass.
Hyper-casual games publisher TabTable meanwhile topped the App Store free download chart with Amaze, usurping Geisha Tokyo's Traffic Run to the throne.
Great Britain and Ireland charts
Clash of Clans moved up to second place on the App Store and Google Play top grossing rankings for the week, but it was unable to knock the unmovable Coin Master off the summit of either marketplace.
Geisha Tokyo held onto top spots on the iOS and Android free download charts with Traffic run. New entries to the rankings included Hibiki Yano's The Noodle in 10th on the App Store and Voodoo's Balls Rorate in fourth on Google Play.
China charts (iOS only)
There were two new entries to the top 10 grossing App Store games in China for the week, with Tencent's The Legend of Moon taking eighth spot - and seventh on the free downloads rankings - while Hypergryph's Arknights was the ninth largest revenue generator.
Tencent's Honor of Kings and Perfect World retained the top two spots, with NetEase also keeping third with Fantasy Westward Journey.
You can meet many of the companies in these charts at our Pocket Gamer Connects events. The next one will be Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle on May 13th to 14th, followed by Pocket Gamer Connects Hong Kong on July 17th to 18th.
