[Each week, sister iPhone and iPad site FingerGaming rounds up the top-grossing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra.
This week's U.S. revenue charts see Tap Zoo
and Angry Birds Seasons
leading iPhone sales, while Rock Band Reloaded
emerges as a top seller on the iPad.
These charts allow end users to see who is making the most money on the App Store that day. It differs significantly from the Top 10 Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies.
Data comes courtesy of Apple's public sales information. All titles in the App Store's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings.
This week's top-grossing iPhone titles are:
1. Angry Birds Seasons
2. Angry Birds
3. Tap Zoo
4. Smurfs' Village
5. Kingdoms at War
6. Zombie Farm
7. Texas Poker
8. Bakery Story
9. World War
10. Cut the Rope
disappears from the top ten after climbing up to third place last week, though plenty of other microtransaction-supported games report top earnings in its absence.
Streetview Labs' Tap Zoo
finishes as today's highest-grossing free-to-play game, while Rovio's Angry Birds
and the recently released Angry Birds Seasons
lead overall chart results.
Capcom's Smurfs' Village
and A Thinking Ape's Kingdoms at War
also rank among this week's top earners based on microtransaction sales, as Storm8's free multiplayer online game World War
returns after a long absence to finish behind TeamLava's Bakery Story
at ninth place.
