    The goal is to have the up do date chart. I am going to update it as soon as someone notifies me (just post a comment here) of an updated information.



    I use app annie and top app charts/ for tracking.

    Well, but topappcharts does not declare any significant achievements. Any ideas why?

    Maybe they didn't start up until after my game had been out for a while? This was in May 2009.

    ok, let's make a new and noteworthy section until it's too big.

    but let the chart cap at top 30.

    deal? ;-)

    New and Noteworthy:
    Deep, Captain Ludwig, Robin Hood : Archer of the Woods

    Just an idea, but could you make a page for this on the website somewhere too, instead of only this thread? Might drive some sales for some people.

    our game "EGGS"

    made #21 in "action" in the US store (jun 10 2010)
    and #16 in "arcade" in the US store (jun 7 2010)

    we where "new and noteworthy" just about everywhere.

    Our games so far:

    "Slippy Feet" - March 2009 - pretty early Unity iPhone game, very simple didn't do much in the charts though

    "Roary The Racing Car - Rollin' Road" - got to number 1 in Kids charts in Croatia, 2 in Nicaragua and Sweden , number 3 in Norway plus number 5 in Finland and number 8 in UK! Still selling ok too.

    and a new game not out just yet... I'll come back and announce this one very soon I hope!

    Let's create a decent chart here first and then move it on the stage

    I am adding only games that made it to global top 30 or archived other important awards.
    I hope you agree that these limits are fare

    I guess when the new and noteworthy section becomes too huge, we'll flush it and either deprecate or start over with the new apple highlighted ones

    Hi!
    I Don´t think there is such a thing as "global top" anything.
    From my limited experience the metrics that are interesting, at least moneywise, is how well you fare in the US. Roughly 50% of our sales are from the US market.

    Pleas correct me if I am wrong.

    btw
    we have been top 5 in games in Mali for quite some time. I think we may have 3 sales total there ;)

    Zombieville USA should be in games top 3 rather than 30. (That app-tracking site only started in August 2009, according to their About page, so it doesn't list Zombieville at its most popular. I think it got to #1 actually.)

    Yes, I believe Zombieville and Battle Bears were both number one at one point.

    Pretty much correct but only because the european charts are scattered into over a dozen ones basically with app trackers not giving a damned about.
    Otherwise the USA wouldn't make it, as europe has twice as many inhabitants and since the crashdown of the US economy a S***load more cash to waste "on goodies" like iOS games ;)

    #1 in AppStore: Skee-Ball
    #1 in AppStore: Skee-Ball HD
    #1 in AppStore: Zombieville USA
    #1 in AppStore: Stick Skater Free
    #1 in AppStore: AirAttack HD

    I absolutely like the trend!

    I am still figuring out the best way of implementing such chart. So please, until we have a proper solution, lets make this list alive and up to date.

    Thanks

    i think you need 3 charts... paid / free / iPad..

    in the case of stick skater, while its great we got to #1 overall in free, we are far more proud of the fact that our paid app got to #2 overall. Meanwhile a HD / iPad app would have sold a small fraction of the iPhone games due to the relatively small market by comparison and cannot really be compared to a #1 app on iPhone like Skee Ball.

    then again, im not quite sure what the point of this list is really. Personally I would put a game like Ravensword much higher up the 'best games' list than ours as it was by far and above a better showcase of Unity. Also comparing a game thats 99c with a game that is 2.99 is also not fair..

    thats just my 99c worth...

    Rimelands hit #1 RPG when released, and got a few features too. It was also September's Game Of The Month in SlideToPlay.

    .. and we won that, what was it, Un- something award ;)

    Wozik: we're working on it. Most have already been ported, and we're working to figure out the pricing/marketing strategy and how to work around the 25 MB limit for some of the games. Thanks for the update!

    Our Game "The Infinity Project" was featured on "What We're Playing Now" back in January 2010!

    We just made it free for a day and we have raised up to

    # 8 All Apps
    # 4 All Games
    # 2 Action Games
    # 1 Adventure Games

    Not bad for one day, also the game is 1 year old this month...

    Qbism HD has had up and down spurts. TopAppCharts has it #5 Top Games in iPad and #32 in iPhone.
    We just released it on Android today and it's been available on the Mac AppStore for a few weeks. Apple seems to like it, having been featured on both iOS and Mac AppStore. Currently in "What We're Playing".

    http://topappcharts.com/406129137/app-details-qbism-hd.php

    Hoping our next game does even better! :)
