Top 10 UK Paid Apps on iPhone
For the first time since, well, last week, there are no aggravated avians at the top of the UK paid-for apps chart, and no Tiny Wings flapping about either.
No, this Friday, Com2uS's battling campaigner Tower Defense: Lost Earth, which rampaged onto the Qi scene in May, takes the ultimate prize.
And with this highly rated, self-explanatory strategist available now at a reduced price (courtesy of its publisher's Independence Day sale), we can see why.
However, if you prefer slugging it out toe-to-toe and fist-to-fist with a foe, perhaps Capcom’s newest entry in the Street Fighter canon on iOS would be your preferred option.
The legendary Japanese game maker has released its old skool, 2D fighter Street Fighter IV: Volt with a brutal pricing model: the longer you wait to buy it, the more it will set you back.
Starting out at 59p / 99c / €0.79 on Thursday, the current #2 app on the UK chart will see its RRP rise on a daily basis until settling on its fixed price of £3.99 / $6.99 / €5.49 on July 6th.
The surprise entry on the leaderboard today is arguably Cars 2. Not because it's an unpopular franchise or because it's a dreadful game, but because it's a ruddy platformer. Yeah, weird, innit.
Will Disney's 'short but sweet' charms cross the finish line in pole position in seven days' time, or can Com2uS's interplanetary TD title fend off all comers?
Tune in next week to find out.
