The Angry Birds duo continues to dominate the app store this week, but old-favorite Fruit Ninja climbs up to the #2 spot with a recent game update. New Zynga title Hanging with Friends drops down to the #5 position this week, with the beautiful Tiny Wings making up this week’s Top 5 best selling iPhone games.
#1 Angry Birds
The top selling iPhone game of all time now sports a mind-blowing 225 levels packed full of angry action, as well as leaderboards and achievements and a bunch of social features. With new updates released all the time, Angry Birds is one of few essential iOS titles.
#2 Fruit Ninja
A frantically fun $0.99 hack-and-slash game from Halfbrick Studios, Fruit Ninja is no stranger to the top 5 with over 6 million iOS downloads to date. With three action-packed game modes, multiplayer and global leaderboards paired with slick 3D graphics, Fruit Ninja is easily among the best casual games for iPhone. Recently updated to include the new pomegranate fruit – slice it as many times as you can before it bursts apart!
#3 Angry Birds Rio
The latest (and newly updated) release in the growing Angry Birds franchise, Angry Birds Rio brings over 100 exotic and challenging bird-launching levels to iPhone and iPad. This time round the Angry Birds crew have been kidnapped and taken to Rio de Janiero, where they promptly escape and set about freeing their exotic tropical buddies Blu and Jewel. A must-have for any Angry Birds fan.
#4 Tiny Wings
The amazing work of just one man – Andreas Illiger – Tiny Wings has taken the App Store by force since its release and continues to enjoy a Top 5 berth. Tiny Wings is a great example of iPhone gaming done well. Simple to pick up and play, with crisp visuals and a beautiful soundtrack, it’s easy to see why Tiny Wings is a favorite with iPhone gamers. Recently updated to include Game Center support, a new nest, stats page and the ability to play your own music in the background.
#5 Hanging with Friends
From the team behind Words with Friends comes a brand-new social word game based on the old-school favorite Hangman. Featuring turn-based gameplay that lets you play up to 20 games simultaneously, Hanging with Friends enables you to nerd it out with both friends and randoms opponents. An in-game messaging system lets you chat with your opponents, and push notifications let you know when it’s your turn to play.
