Emerging paid iOS apps: Infinity Blade, Clear Vision and Angry Birds Space
Established hits dominate the paid app charts this week. Rovio’s Angry Birds Space holds the No. 1 spot on both the iPhone and iPad paid app charts this week, continuing the chart-topping success of its debut. Zynga’s Draw Something follows in second place on both charts.
Epic’s Infinity Blade holds the No. 4 spot on the iPhone paid app charts and the No. 3 spot on the paid iPad charts thanks to a sale that has dropped the price to $0.99. The discount has had a tremendous affect on the game’s chart position. In January Epic revealed the game had earned $23 million in its first year of release.
While few new apps made the charts this week, FDG Entertainment’s totally-unsuitable-for-children Clear Vision (17+) has rocketed to the top of the paid app charts, taking the No. 3 spot on the iPhone charts and the No. 4 spot on the iPad charts. Released on Feb. 21, the game is a cartoonish — but very violent — role playing game that puts the player in the shoes of Tyler, a former supermarket cleaner who begins career as a professional hitman. The game costs $0.99.
