Exclusive Sensor Tower charts: Tencent’s Tower of Fantasy hits number one in US, UK, Japan

 

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 August 8-14.

Let’s start with US downloads.

Tencent’s Tower of Fantasy sweeps the board at number one this week, with Habby’s Survivor.io new at number four in the combined App Store and Google Play chart. Stumble Guys is still riding high, too. 

The US revenue charts aren’t much fun – it’s mostly just the usual suspects, rearranged. Still, Playrix’s Township has sneaked into the Google Play top ten at eight, which is new. We don’t remember seeing it that high before. 

China’s charts show a pretty predictable bunch topping the revenue charts, but plenty going on with downloads. Subway Surfers is tearing it up in China all of a sudden, and there are four new entries including Habby’s Shell Commando, which is how Survivor.io is localised in China. Tower of Fantasy is not new in China, so it’s nowhere to be seen here. 

Japan’s download charts show Tower of Fantasy taking top spot in all three listings, bumping last week’s combined chart topper Full Metal Alchemist down to second. Habby’s hit Survivor.io also makes it into the combined charts at eight.

Japan’s revenue rankings show Fate/Grand Order at the top yet again, with Full Metal Alchemist entering the top ten earners in eighth. Tower of Fantasy sneaks into tenth in the App Store charts here, quite a feat for a brand new game.

UK players rushed to download Tower of Fantasy too, as it tops all three download charts. Survivor.io has had a noticeably slower start here compared to other countries, and doesn’t make the combined chart top ten (it’s fourth in the App Store rankings). Mobibrain’s Fish Eater.io makes its debut at ten in the combined chart.

The UK’s revenue charts are mostly static with Roblox, Coin Master and Candy Crush Saga bossing the top three again. Kudos to Dream Games, though – Royal Match is the fourth top earner in the combined charts, and hasn’t been on the market anywhere near as long as the rest of the contenders here.
