Top-Grossing iTunes Apps: Mirror's Edge, Doodle Jump Move Up the Charts

Apple's latest U.S. App Store game charts by revenue see Mirror's Edge gaining popularity among iPad owners, as Doodle Jump challenges top sellers on the iPhone.
Every week, sister iPhone 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 EA's Mirror's Edge gaining popularity among iPad owners, as Doodle Jump challenges top sellers on the iPhone. 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. The Sims 3 World Adventures ($6.99) 2. Monopoly ($4.99) 3. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99) 4. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies ($9.99) 5. Doodle Jump ($0.99) 6. Plants vs. Zombies ($2.99) 7. Ragdoll Blaster 2 ($2.99) 8. We Rule (Free) 9. Zombie Farm (Free) 10. Words With Friends ($2.99) EA's The Sims 3 expansion World Adventures tops the iPhone charts for the second week in a row. Monopoly once again finishes at second place, as PopCap's Bejeweled 2 climbs up to third after finishing eighth last week. Lima Sky's 99-cent action game Doodle Jump returns to the charts after a brief absence, finishing behind Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies in today's results. Plants vs. Zombies also sees renewed popularity this week, while Backflip Studios' Ragdoll Blaster 2 edges out ngmoco's free-to-play social game We Rule for seventh place. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad games: 1. Real Racing HD ($9.99) 2. Scrabble for iPad ($9.99) 3. Plants vs. Zombies HD ($9.99) 4. Mirror's Edge for iPad ($12.99) 5. Need for Speed Shift for iPad ($14.99) 6. X-Plane for iPad ($9.99) 7. Flight Control HD ($4.99) 8. Labyrinth 2 HD ($7.99) 9. Command & Conquer Red Alert for iPad ($12.99) 10. Let's Golf! HD ($4.99) Firemint's Real Racing HD leads iPad sales for two weeks straight, with EA's upgraded Scrabble port and Plants vs. Zombies HD following close behind at second and third place. Need for Speed Shift drops to fifth place this week, while Mirror's Edge rises up to take fourth following a seventh-place finish last week. Laminar's flight sim X-Plane overtakes Firemint's Flight Control, meanwhile, as Illusion Labs' Labyrinth 2 outsells Command & Conquer Red Alert at eighth place.
