Amazing scenes this week as Strong Bad steals first place in the charts, this is unprecedented in the first week of game sales. Heck it only came out 2 days ago. Finally something to topple the reign of the lacklustre Pokemon Ranch!

Pong Toss surprisingly holds firm in 2nd place for another week. We’re saying nothing! Another surprise was Wild West Guns sneaking past the mighty Dr Mario this week too. It’s a game worth checking out so it’s good to see it get the recognition it deserves and not just fade away into obscurity after one week.

The rest of the chart is pretty predictable as usual. The painfully average Protöthea goes into the pit of Hades this week, please do yourself a favour and buy Toki Tori this week if you haven’t already, this is a game which certainly doesn’t deserve to be so low in the charts.

As always, have your say on this week’s findings below.
