Minecraft – Pocket Edition surpasses 10 million sales mark

mojang-logoSwedish independent game developer Mojang today announced that Minecraft – Pocket Edition surpassed the 10 million sales mark as of yesterday.

“We are very thankful to all the support that we have gotten and people playing and talking about our game,” says Daniel Kaplan, business developer at Mojang, in a blog post today.

Minecraft – Pocket Edition is the mobile version of the sandbox indie title that first launched in 2009. The premium-priced mobile game app. which is priced at $6.99 and features no in-app purchases, has remained in the top 25 on the top grossing iOS and Android apps charts for months, despite competing against the slew of free-to-play games like Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans that take up a majority of the top spots on the charts.

Pocket Edition released in late 2011 and is currently available for iOS and Android, and has remained at the same price point since launch.

At the beginning of 2013, Mojang released download figures for its sandbox building game on PC, Mac, Xbox Live Arcade and mobile. Downloads for Minecraft – Pocket Edition exceeded 280,000 on Christmas Day alone, 700,000 during Christmas week and 5.8 million in all of 2012. Assuming the title sold at $6.99 at all times in 2012, Mojang generated more than $41 million in gross revenue (before the app stores standard 30 percent cut).

According to our traffic tracking service AppData, Minecraft – Pocket Edition for iOS is the No. 4 ranked app on both the iPhone and iPad top paid apps charts, and ranked No. 4 on the top grossing iPad apps chart and No. 18 on the top grossing iPhone apps chart. For Android, Pocket Edition landed at the No. 4 spot on the top paid Android apps chart and the No. 24 position on the top grossing Android apps chart.

DeNA’s Blood Brothers surpasses Rage of Bahamut for top spot on U.S. Google Play’s top grossing apps chart

DeNA announced today that RPG Blood Brothers reached the No. 1 spot in the U.S. for the first time on Google Play’s top grossing apps chart over the past weekend.

Cygames developed card battler Rage of Bahamut, another DeNA game, held the No. 1 position for more than six months since April 22, until it was dethroned by Blood Brothers on Sunday, according to our traffic tracking service AppData. Blood Brothers has also reached the No. 1 spot on the Android top grossing apps chart in 22 countries including Canada, France and Sweden.Blood Brothers

DeNA recently purchased a 20 percent share of developer Cygames  for $92 million in an effort to strengthen the alliance between the two companies. DeNA also reported its highest ever revenues at $627 million, with $254 million in profit for the quarter ending on Sept. 30.

Blood Brothers is joined by two other Mobage titles, Rage of Bahamut and Marvel: War of Heroes, in the top 10 on Google Play’s U.S. top grossing apps chart.

Blood Brothers currently sits at the No. 2 spot in the top grossing apps category for Android, with Rage of Bahamut reclaiming the No. 1 spot, according to AppData.Blood Brothers AppData

Bad Piggies hits No. 1 in more than 37 countries — impressive, but not as good Angry Birds Space or Amazing Alex

Maybe people just don’t like those green pigs after all. Bad Piggies, the Angry Birds spin-off repaints the iconic hogs as heros doesn’t seem to be seeing the same launch day success that Angry Birds Space and Amazing Alex did.

The game was released today at 3:00 am pacific standard time, or 1:00 pm in the afternoon Helsinki time. When Inside Mobile Apps checked the iTunes app store this morning the game was the No. 1 paid iPhone app in 37 countries and the No. 1 paid iPad app in 39, including: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Taiwan, France, Sweden, Spain, Norway and Russia.

The game is in the top 10 of the paid iPhone app charts in 40 countries, and in the top 10 of the paid iPad app charts in a further 36 including: China, Mexico, the U.K, India, the U.K., Japan and South Korea.

Interestingly, the game was the top grossing iPhone or iPad app just 9 countries when we checked:  the U.S., Belarus, Finland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Macedonia and Poland.

The game, which costs $0.99 on the iPhone and $2.99 on the iPad hasn’t seen the same chart reception as either Angry Birds Space or Amazing Alex, Rovio’s last two releases.

The highly anticipated (and heavily promoted) Angry Birds Space was an instant hit, shooting into the No. 1 spot on both the top grossing and top paid charts in dozens of countries including key markets like Germany, France, the U.K., the U.S. and China. Amazing Alex was also able to put in a strong debut on the paid app charts, hitting No. 1 in 53 countries on the iPhone and 68 on the iPad, although it wasn’t able to crack the top grossing app charts in key markets such as Japan, China or the U.S.

As is typical, the app hasn’t yet shown up on the U.S. Google Play charts, as Google’s chart ranking algorithm tends to update slower than the one Apple uses. The game is free on Android and monetizes via ads, and comes in both a standard and an HD version designed for tablets. The game is also available as a $2.99 Kindle in the Amazon Appstore, and as a $4.99 download in the Mac App Store.

It would be disingenuous to say the game isn’t a hit considering how many charts Bad Piggies is currently on top of, but it’s likely Rovio were hoping for a better debut for the title. The company’s last game, Amazing Alex started strongly, but hasn’t been able to hold its momentum. According to our traffic tracking service AppData, the iPhone version of the game is currently the No. 107 top paid app and the No. 368 top grossing game in the U.S. The HD version is the No. 117 top paid iPad app and the No. 226 iPad app in the games genre. For Bad Piggies to see the same kind of success its Angry Bird precursors have, it will need to hold the momentum its built up today. We’ll be watching the title’s performance closely.

Bingo Bash, Wipeout, The Simpsons and more on this week’s top grossing iOS app charts

Overall we didn’t see much change on the charts this week, with familiar apps like Pandora RadioDragonValePoker by Zynga and Slotomania all ranking near the top of the charts and Rage of Bahamut once again taking the No. 1 spot on iPhone.

BitRhymes’ iOS version of its Facebook bingo game Bingo Bash HD took the No. 1 spot on this week’s chart of top grossing iPad apps, dethroning Kabam’s social city building Sim Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North which dropped to the No. 2 spot.

One notable newcomer is Activision’s Wipeout, a game based on the ABC television show of the same name. It posted a solid debut, coming in at the No. 8 spot on the iPhone top grossing apps chart. EA’s The Simpsons: Tapped Out, a city-building game based on the beloved animated series, is also still holding its ground near the top of the charts this week, taking the No. 4 spot on iPhone and the No. 6 spot on iPad, proving perhaps that there is lasting appeal to the game that goes beyond brand recognition.

CSR Racing is earning more than $12M a month on iOS, says NaturalMotion

NaturalMotion Games reports its hyper-popular free-to-play game CSR Racing is earning more than $12 million a month on iOS. The staggering number, which translates to in-app sales of more than $400,000 a day, is a new high water mark for just how much money a game can earn on Apple’s platform.

What’s even more impressive is that NaturalMotion CEO Torsten Reil tells us that CSR Racing has been able to rack up millions of downloads and top the charts without a user acquisition campaign. “This is people organically downloading the game,” he says.

“We’re creating an experience that people want to download, share with their friends and show it to people. We don’t have to play this game of buying users and spending a lot of money per user to get people into the game.”

CSR Racing is only the company’s second free-to-play title, following My Horse, a hyper-realistic looking animal care title that was released last year. Although the title was successful, and showed the company how much potential there was in the mobile market, according to Reil, CSR Racing’s success is on a completely different level.

The title is grossing more than $12 million a month, meaning NaturalMotion is earning more than $9 million a month after Apple’s 30 percent cut. NaturalMotion also currently working on new multiplayer and PvP modes to add to the game, which will provide even more opportunities for monetization.

CSR Racing’s performance on the top grossing charts from its June 28 release to the end of July. The light purple line and the tan lines at the top of the chart show its position on the top grossing iPhone app and top grossing iPad app charts. 

Although the company isn’t sharing information about the game’s average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU), Reil did tell us his team has been very positively surprised by the game’s figures.  According to Reil, players in CSR Racing don’t encounter any hard paywalls that block access to later parts of the game — instead NaturalMotion monetizes the game by allowing them to purchase premium cars, and speed up delivery for parts; mechanisms that mirror the real world and make sense with the game’s storyline, with progression fitting into the game’s core loop.

“We need people to be part of the game, rather than feel that there is this kind of second part of the game where you have to pay money but its kind of tacked on,” he says. “It doesn’t help us if the user feels like they are getting nickeled and dimed. We want the person to feel good about the whole game experience. Doing that is not trivial. We iterated a lot. That for us, has created an ARPDAU that we hadn’t been close to achieving before.”

User spending in CSR Racing is also quite evenly distributed says Reil, who tells us the game has a strong conversion rate. A large portion of players spend what he describes as “good amounts” of money, meaning the game isn’t relying on whales or a small amount of hyper-addicted users to generate its income.

Reil also credits CSR Racing’s success to its polish, explaining the company spent almost as long perfecting the game as it did developing it. The desire to make high quality products was part of the reason the company took on an $11 million round of Series B funding in July, he explains. Free from the financial pressure to release a game due to cash flow reasons, the company was able to take its time with CSR Racing.

“We spent a huge amount of time balancing the game,” he says. “We wrote simulations for different play patterns to make sure every user, independent of how good they are, will have a good experience playing the game.”

Reil also credits CSR Racing success to its visuals, which are some of the most impressive seen on iOS today. The console-quality visuals not only give the game a “wow factor”, they also help users feel like they actually own their cars in the game. “It was really important to us in terms of the emotional relationship we were trying to achieve,” he says. “It sounds silly but it’s similar to what we did with My Horse.”

As part of today’s announcement, NaturalMotion also revealed it has spent an undisclosed sum to acquire Boss Alien, the Brighton-based team that helped NaturalMotion develop CSR Racing. All 14 members of the studio will be joining NaturalMotion, but the studio will continue to operate under the Boss Alien name.

DragonVale, Rage of Bahamut, Ice Age Village and more on this week’s top grossing iOS app charts

Backflip Studios’ animal care game DragonVale and DeNA’s card battle game Rage of Bahamut continue to take turns at the top of the grossing iOS app charts. This week Rage of Bahamut took the No. 1 spot, pushing DragonVale down to the No. 3 spot. Mobage’s platform operator DeNA announced its plans to capitalize on Rage of Bahamut’s successful formula by applying it to Marvel and Transformers themed games.

Two other notable gainers on the top grossing iPhone chart are Machine Zone’s Global War, which climbed 10 spots to take the No. 24 spot, and Gameloft’s city sim Ice Age Village, which rose 61 spots to take the No. 25 spot.

On the top grossing iPad apps chart Ice Age Village moved up 36 spots to take the No. 7 spot, while PopCap’s Bejeweled Blitz climbed 10 spots to take the No. 15 spot.

DragonVale, Bejeweled Blitz, Dark Summoner and more on this week’s top grossing iOS apps

Once again, it seems that DragonVale can’t spend much time outside the top spot, as the animal care game climbs back into the top grossing position on both the iPhone and iPad charts, dropping DeNA’s Rage of Bahamut to the No. 2 spot on the iPhone app chart. Previous chart topper CSR Racing falls slightly this week, dropping to No. 5 on iPhone and No. 6 on the iPad charts.

Lower down the charts, EA PopCap’s Bejeweled Blitz takes the No. 7 spot on the top grossing iPhone app chart and the No. 13 spot on the top grossing iPad app chart. During yesterday’s quarterly earnings call, EA revealed that Bejeweled Blitz is the company’s top performing mobile game.

Finally Ateam’s Dark Summoner also performs well on the top grossing iPhone app charts. Earlier this month industry watcher and analyst Dr. Serkan Toto, reported the game is currently making more than $1.3 million a month on iOS, although reviewing the game’s performance on the top grossing charts through AppData shows that is it gaining ground, meaning it could be making even more now.

Rage of Bahamut, CSR Racing, The Dark Knight Rises and more on this week’s top grossing iOS apps

DeNA will be happy this week as Rage of Bahamut climbs back into the top grossing spot on the iPhone app charts, finally dethroning NaturalMotion’s CSR Racing.  Although CSR Racing drops to No. 2 this week, it has held the No. 1 spot on the top grossing iPhone app chart since July 2. Both games are free to play, but while CSR Racing is a more casual title with console quality graphics, Rage of Bahamut is a more simply presented card-battle game.

The iPad charts also saw change at the top this week, as Backflip studio’s DragonVale once again returned to the top grossing spot, pushing CSR Racing to No. 2 on that chart as well.

Gameloft’s officially licensed Batman app The Dark Knight Rises also performed very strongly, finishing in the No. 10 spot on the iPhone charts and the No. 3 spot on the iPad charts. Unlike most of the other apps on the top grossing charts, The Dark Knight Rises is a $6.99 paid app.

CSR Racing, The Tribez, Fieldrunners 2 and more on this week’s top grossing iOS apps

There wasn’t much change on iOS top grossing charts this week. Once again, NaturalMotion’s CSR Racing took the top spot, its third week in a row holding the position. Also like last week, its followed by Kabam’s Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North in the No. 2 position and DeNA’s Rage of Bahamut in the No. 3 spot.

The iPad charts also repeated last week’s top three, with CSR Racing, Comics and Backflip Studios’ DragonVale retaining their respective No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 ranks.

Outside of the unchanged top of the charts, Subatomic Studios’ Fieldrunners 2 is this week’s fastest rising app on the iPhone charts, climbing 24 spots to claim the No. 8 position on the top grossing chart. The tower defence title costs $2.99 and was released on July 19. On the iPad charts, Game Insight’s The Tribez HD rises an impressive 42 spots to land in the No. 9 position.

CSR Racing, Rage of Bahamut, Zynga Slots and more on this week’s top grossing iOS apps

For the second week in a row, NaturalMotion’s new game CSR Racing takes the No. 1 spot on the top grossing iPhone and iPad charts. The game, which was originally previewed at WWDC, is free-to-play, and monetizes through in-app purchases. NaturalMotion recently raised $11 million in Series B funding to expand its mobile development capacity.

Moving slightly down the top grossing iPhone charts, DeNA’s Rage of Bahamut finishes in the No. 3 spot this week. The app has not dipped below No. 8 on the iPhone top grossing charts in the last month.

Finally Zynga Slots appears to off to a good start, taking the No. 23 position on the top grossing iPhone app chart this week. The app has been performing well, but placed below Playtika’s Slotomania, which takes the No. 6 spot and Fishstick’s Slots Journey, which lands in the No. 17 spot this week.
