There hasn’t been too much movement in the top 20 charts this week. Strong Bad continues to maintain his awesomeness by maintaining first place for yet another week. Pokémon steals 2nd again and Wild West Guns continues to do better than perhaps some might have predicted in 3rd place this week.
Midnight Pool has done well to break into the top 10 just a week after launch. It will be interesting to see if it can make it into the top 5 by next week. Disappointingly Pong Toss is still hanging around in 6th place, unless you think we’re just being unfair to this shambling mockery, everyone else agrees with us! Please stop buying this our American friends or the world is going to get the wrong idea about you :stuck_out_tongue:
Helix debuts at 17th place, we should hopefully see it reach the top 10 by next week. The casualty this week is Magnetica Twist, which seems a little unfair as it’s a fun game. It looked like it was going to be the demise of Pop this week but it had a lucky escape. Maybe next week we’ll see Major League Eating drop off the chart, for a game only released 6 weeks ago it really doesn’t seem to have sold too well at all. It’s a shame because we liked it much more than we thought we would!
