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 29th to August 4th
The US free downloads chart saw little movement on Google Play, as Lion Studios’ Mr Bullet aimed straight for another week at the top of the charts.
Good Job Games’ Color Fill 3D made the biggest splash, placing first on iOS and sliding into 10th spot on Android.
Epic’s introduction of mechs in Fortnite has seen the battle royale phenomenon return to the peak of the top grossing chart on the App Store. Supercell's Clash of Clans was held off in second place, but managed to secure first on Google Play.
