Top-Grossing iTunes Apps: Sonic 2, Ultimate Spider-Man Enter Top Three

Apple's latest U.S. App Store game charts by revenue see Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Gameloft's Ultimate Spider-Man leading sales on the iPhone, as Angry Birds HD and Medieval HD top the iPad charts.
Every 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 Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Gameloft's Ultimate Spider-Man leading sales on the iPhone, as Angry Birds HD and Medieval HD top the iPad charts. 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 ($0.99) 2. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 ($5.99) 3. Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem ($6.99) 4. Madden NFL 11 ($7.99) 5. Bejeweled 2 + Blitz ($2.99) 6. Tetris ($2.99) 7. The Oregon Trail ($0.99) 8. Scrabble ($2.99) 9. Deer Hunter: African Safari ($2.99) 10. Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey ($0.99) Sonic the Hedgehog 2 climbs up to second place during a recent round of discounts from Sega, and continues to see strong sales. Gameloft's licensed brawler Ultimate Spider-Man: Total Mayhem takes third in its debut week, as Clickgamer's Angry Birds once again leads App Store game sales. EA's Madden NFL 11 drops to fourth place in today's rankings after taking second last week. Bejeweled 2 and Tetris lead over Gameloft's price-dropped The Oregon Trail, as Glu's recently released Deer Hunter: African Safari beats Ludia's Where's Waldo? for ninth place. Here are this week’s top-grossing iPad applications: 1. Angry Birds HD ($4.99) 2. Medieval HD ($2.99) 3. Scrabble for iPad ($9.99) 4. Zombie Farm (Free) 5. Plants vs. Zombies HD ($9.99) 6. City Story (Free) 7. Madden NFL 11 for iPad ($12.99) 8. Fruit Ninja HD ($4.99) 9. Real Racing HD ($9.99) 10. We Rule for iPad (Free) Madden NFL 11 for iPad tumbles to seventh place after previously rivaling Angry Birds HD at second place in last week's rankings. Brisk Mobile's Medieval HD charts at second place in its first week of release, as EA's Scrabble overtakes Playforge's microtransaction-supported Zombie Farm for third. TeamLava's social simulation title City Story remains another free-to-play favorite at sixth place, meanwhile, as Fruit Ninja HD, Real Racing HD, and ngmoco's returning We Rule for iPad close out today's results.
