Weekly UK App Store charts: Hello Stars, Hello Neighbor and Plank! top flurry of new stars in download rankings

So we’re sharing that data each week to give you an insight into how the UK mobile games market is evolving.

New additions include Fastone Games' Hello Stars in second, TinyBuild's Hello Neighbor in fifth, Kwalee's Plank! in sixth, Crazy Labs' Run Around in seventh and Gameloft's Asphalt 9: Legends in ninth.
