Weekly global mobile games charts: Harry Potter remains stationary as Pokemon Go makes a comeback

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 June 24th to June 30th

US Charts

After making its magical debut last week, Niantic’s Harry Potter: Wizards Unite dropped a couple of places on Google Play for downloads but jumped up by one place on the App Store.

Wizards Unite failed to break into the top 10 for grossing yet again -  even with a full week of being live under its belt this time around. Pokemon Go continued its climb in the chart moving from ninth to eight on iOS and sixth to fifth on Android.

Voodoo’s Aquapark.io remained at first across both stores in terms of installs for the US, with Good Job’s Fun Race 3D coming the closest to knocking the title off its perch on Android.

505 Games’ Human: Fall Flat was the only real note for paid games, making it to second spot on Google Play.

Great Britain and Ireland charts

Similar movement for Mr. Potter in Britain and Ireland with Wizards Unite moving to second for iOS but falling to fourth for Android.

Again the game was not able to penetrate the top 10 grossers either, yet Pokemon Go replicated its comeback in the US by moving to seventh on iOS and third on Android respectively.

Ninja Kiwi’s Bloons TD 6 and Huma: Fall Flat from 505 Games entered the Google Play store at fifth and sixth position, while Feral Interactive’s Rome Total War crashed out of top 10 altogether.

China charts (iOS only)

In China, Chengdu Longyuan’s Auto Chess reached first position for downloads, which resulted in last week’s top spot Raziel descending to fourth.

Paid charts witnessed Guo He Games’ Girl Warrior Unite charge the charts to become runner-up for the week, only beaten by Think Games’ Call Me Archmage.

No new games managed to stir up the top 10 grossing titles, as Tencent’s Honor of Kings and Game for Peace continued to hold on to first and second for another week. 

You can meet with many of the companies mentioned in these charts at our Pocket Gamer Connects events. The next conference will take place in Hong Kong on July 17th and 18th. Head here for further details.
