At the end of September 2022, App2Top together with AppMagic released a report on the most popular and highest grossing mobile games in the world.
The top game in terms of total downloads for the fourth time in a row is Stumble Guys. This product is considered a clone of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, developed by Finnish studio Kitka Games. In September, the mobile version had 23.9 million downloads.
However, the first positions in the top only for iOS and Android have been taken by other games. The product that has returned to the top of Android is Subway Surfers with 22.5 million downloads in September (18.7 million on Google Play and 3.8 million on the App Store). The most downloaded iOS game of the month was X-HERO, a superhero fighting game released in the summer of 2020 by the Chinese game company. This mobile game has received 6.8 million downloads.
The game Stick War: Hero Tower Defense from Rocket Game Studio takes 10th place in terms of total downloads with 13.7 million. The game ranks at number 8 on the Android operating system. The gameplay of Stick War: Hero Tower Defense is reminiscent of another game from the company, Stick Hero: Mighty Tower Wars – the game that made the top in August. In fact, the two games are only different in terms of visuals.
The latest mobile game revenue rankings published by AppMagic show almost no change in rankings compared to previous months. The first place in the overall top and the top iOS traditionally belongs to Honor of Kings. The game earned the most with revenue of 172.19 million USD. On Android, Candy Crush Saga grossed $57.4 million (including $47.1 million on iOS).
The Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle mobile game released in 2015 has returned to the ratings. Within a month, the fighting game climbed 30 places to the top with games from Google Play, eventually taking the 9th and 7th places respectively. The game grossed $53.9 million.
The game released in the cherry blossom country Puzzle & Dragons rose 23 places to rank 10th in the list of iOS games with the highest sales. The game’s September sales were $44.1 million.
