Each month, there are thousands of mobile and iPhone games released into the wild but only a select few of them could enjoy huge admiration and riches beyond anyone’s dream. Here are the 10 most popular, best-selling iPhone games in the USA region for July 2020 according to the data provided by mobile analytics Sensor Tower. While somewhat surprisingly the popular Call of Duty Mobile is not in this list, can you guess which titles are in the top five?
10. Toon Blast on iPhone
Who would’ve thought a simple color-matching casual puzzle game released on 2018 would have this kind of staying power, gaining $14 million in revenue two years later? The simple cartoony visual that appeals to kids and older people and consistent updates might be its key to claim a spot in the 10 top-grossing iPhone titles in the United States.
One of those mobile games; the ones that have weird, annoying, but (arguably) “distinct” online ads. Even if they are misleading at times, this iPhone game gained $27 million in revenue and three million downloads.
8. PUBG Mobile
If you think PUBG Mobile is as popular as the PC version, you might want to rethink that. Still, number eight is nothing to scoff about. This month the iPhone version of the widely popular battle royale title gained around $31 million revenue and two million downloads.
In addition to Gardenscapes, it seems those YouTube ads are indeed working well for their success — although its review page is filled with complaints about misleading ads. In seventh place Homescapes gained two million downloads along with $21 million in revenue last month.
6. Coin Master
Parroting what I’ve said before, Coin Master is literally, simply a “slot machine simulator”. It doesn’t even have fancy graphics to turn the whole routine into something more satisfying. Even then the iPhone version successfully generated three million downloads with $23 million in revenue. Someone’s got to stop them before it’s too late.
5. Fortnite on iPhone
Not surprising seeing Fortnite in the five top-grossing titles, right? It gained $39 million in revenue last month and boasted having 250 million players total in 2019. Although since this iPhone game features cross-play between all modern platforms across the board, boasting such numbers of players and revenue shouldn’t come as a surprise.
4. Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga was first released on iOS on November 14, 2012. And just last month it still raking in $28 million revenue and one million downloads, based on Sensor Tower’s data. Not bad for an eight-year-old game, huh?
It’s no wonder that Roblox is sitting tall in 3rd place considering they have 158 million monthly active users as of June — to contrast, the most popular game on Steam, CS:GO, only peaked at 862,850 players this month. According to Sensor Tower, it raked in $52 million in revenue last month.
2. Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle on iPhone
First released worldwide on July 16, 2015, it seems the game managed to dethrone Roblox and is having some kind of resurgence since June. While it has stayed consistently in the top five grossing positions for months, Dokkan Battle ranking in the Free App category rose from 1.284 to 281 early this month. The fifth-anniversary in-game event might have a hand in that. In June alone it got 70.000 downloads and three million dollars in revenue.
1. Pokemon GO
Yup, you guessed it. Pokemon GO is still the number one mobile game for iPhone. Even with the threat of COVID-19 lockdowns preventing people to run around catching Pokemon, this social game manages to show off its gameplay flexibility and keeping its loyal fans happy. For that Pokemon GO gained $38 million in revenue in iPhone alone.
If you’re wondering where Call of Duty Mobile‘s position is, it dropped down one rank to number 12 this month. Just barely beaten by the Garena Free Fire battle royale game. Hopefully, this article has been insightful and/or entertaining. Do you still play these games to this day? Any titles you were expecting to show up? Tell us about it in the comments.
