High ground

For the week of April 9th to 15th, Voodoo's Helix Jump has hit the top spot of the iPhone download charts ahead of Epic's runaway success Fortnite. Serkan Ozyilmaz's Rise Up took third while EA's The Sims Mobile jumped up 13 places to fourth, knocking Tencent's PUBG Mobile down to fifth.

Fortnite has fallen from second to third in the top grossing stakes, with Roblox climbing to second just behind King's Candy Crush Saga.

In the iPhone paid charts meanwhile, just after celebrating its fourth anniversary Square Enix's Hitman Sniper has climbed up to eighth spot. Check out our interview with Hitman Sniper product lead and senior producer Dominic Allaire for more on how the developer has kept the premium title going strong years later.
