App Annie Reveals Top Revenue Generating Mobile Game Apps

On Wednesday, App Annie updated its Games Index to reveal the top earning games for the month of May 2013.

“Candy Crush Saga had an impressive May, ranking #1 in iOS App Store game downloads, iOS game revenue, and Google Play game downloads in May 2013,” the company posted on its blog today.

With regard to Google Play game revenue, Puzzle & Dragons continued to lead the way.

Action and Arcade games were common among the top ten downloaded games in the iOS App Store and Google Play in May. For revenue, Role Playing games were well-represented in the top ten for the iOS App Store, and Brain & Puzzle games appeared the most on the top ten list for Google Play.

Not surprisingly, movie themed games – like official games featuring Fast & Furious 6 and Iron Man 3 – were also big hits.

“In the land of publishers,” App Annie reveals. “Electronic Arts and Rovio benefited from new apps, including sequels to popular franchises TETRIS and Angry Birds. GungHo Online and Supercell continued to be dominant players on the revenue front.”
