Sensor Tower has kindly agreed to send us exclusive weekly download and revenue charts for the US, China, Japan and the UK. Here’s the data for the week of July 11-17.
Let’s start with US downloads.
As we reported at the time, Stumble Guys hit the top spot in the US downloads chart as it continued its wild rise to the top. The only new entry is Google Play-only hypercasual game Snow Race, from Cyberagent.
The US revenue charts are pretty unremarkable, except for DoubleDown Casino, which sneaks into ninth in the App Store top ten. In the combined charts Genshin Impact is on the rise and Dokkan Battle, Evony, Royal Match and Bingo Blitz each dropped a place or two this week.
In China, there’s a newbie in the top grossing charts: Leiting’s Obi Island: Kingdom of Dreams, an Animal Crossing-like life sim. In the download chart there are three new games: Tencent’s Arena Breakout at number one, Ohayoo’s Wang Sloan’s Road to Wealth at three and Aquarium Land from Homa Games in at eight.
A duo of newbies take the top spots in Japan’s download chart: Tap4fun’s Kingdom Guard is top and Tencent’s Chimeraland is in second. There’s also a new entry at five, Ryo Shirakawa’s Word Survival.
Top grossing games in Japan are pretty settled, with no new entries in any of the top charts and Mixi’s ever-dependable Monster Strike top of all three listings.
And over here in the UK, Kitka’s Stumble Guys comes out on top of the combined charts, just like in the US. A shoutout for Crazylabs’ Dig Deep, too, which enters the combined chart in second thanks to its stellar performance on Android. It’s the same deal with Voodoo’s Rope and Demolish, in at nine in the combined charts and four in the Google Play charts, but nowhere to be seen on iOS.
The UK top grossing charts have a surprise new entry in the form of Sialia Games’ Chinese 4X strategy game New Three Kingdoms, mostly on the strength of its performance on Google Play. Elsewhere, the top four of Coin Master, Roblox, Candy Crush Saga and State of Survival all hold firm.
