Mobile game development has become a very contentious market these days. Developers, Investors and Production houses keep a constant eye on the movers and shakers of the App stores. From the iOS store, to the Google Store, there are millions to be made in mobile game development. We are seeing a constant growth in downloads, sales and usage statistics when it comes to people playing games on their mobile devices.

This is largely due to technology finally being able to allow us to fully enjoy a gaming experience on a mobile device. Gone are the days where you only play games on a PC or a Console. We decided to take a look at the most popular mobile games as it currently stands. This is based on the amount of downloads and the amount of money made.

Looking at AppAnnie’s stats index, these are the games that currently lead the charge. Thy are divided into Free, Paid and In-App-Purchases/Grossing.

We absolutely love Clash of Clans, we are completely addicted.  Candy Crush Saga may be close on it’s heals but few countries have listed Clash of Clans as their top grossing app for such an extended period of time.

Clash of Clans is an addictive mixture of strategic planning and competitive fast-paced combats. Raise an army of Barbarians, War Wizards, Dragons and other mighty fighters. Join a clan of players and rise through the ranks, or create your own Clan to contest ownership of the Realm. Driving back the goblins is just the first step – your quest isn’t over until your clan reigns supreme over all others!
