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 July 15th to 21st.
Lion Studios’ Mr Bullet shot to the top of the US Google Play charts for downloads knocking Jelly Shift from Say Games down to second. However, the title did manage to hang onto first place across the App Store.
Other new entries for top iOS downloads included Kwalee’s Shootout 3D, Ketchapp’s Origame and Say Games’ Battle Disc at second, third and fourth respectively.
For the top-grossing, Roblox continued its fight for dominance with Candy Crush Saga claiming top spot for iOS this week. Tencent’s PUBG Mobile also fired up from fourth to rank first for the Android chart.
Last week’s big mover Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle fell heavily, dropping out of iOS altogether and hanging on to seventh on Android.
