UK trade association ELSPA has published its chart of the most downloaded mobile phone games for January 2006 in the United Kingdom. The chart compiles information supplied by 3, O2, Orange, T-Mobile, and Vodafone, and gives a continuing look at what UK mobile game consumers are actually purchasing into the New Year.
November's top game, Jamdat's (and now EA's) classic puzzler Tetris
, has re-assumed the top spot in January, showing the continuing value of the license. This re-crowning followed a surge to the top for the King Kong
mobile title from Gameloft in December, which has now vanished entirely from the charts.
Also charting highly is EA's mobile version of The Sims 2
, which has made it up to the second spot, closely followed by Namco's perennial dot chomper Pac-Man
, which slides into third place and continues its steady performance in the UK mobile charts.
Finally, continuing down the charts are Glu's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
in fourth, followed by Gameloft's Block Breaker Deluxe
, I-Play and EA's Tiger Woods 2005
, and a surprise appearance for Living Mobile's version of Bandai's Tamagotchi
. The rest of the chart is completed by titles that have previously made it into the top ten in previous months, including Gameloft's Midnight Poker
and New York Nights: Success In The City
and I-Play's 3D Pool
