Today There are for all tastes and ages, whenever not using the touch screen or adapt a remote amount you.

Despite the enormous quantity of games that are on our favorite operating system, only a few are able to achieve success both in downloads and revenue. Pokemon Go is one of the games that have come to that success, but, although he has become the most downloaded game from last year, It is not that has generated more revenue.

A detail that confirms that mobile games are on the rise is the amount of revenue generated during the fourth quarter of last year according to the signature Sensor Tower, which would reach the sum of 7,500 million, much more than the same quarter of the previous year, which added a total of 4,400 billion dollars.

But the game that stays with the leadership on downloads is one more recent, Pokemon Go, that was a brutal ‘boom’ as soon as it became Google Play. He has far exceeded games as popular as Clash of Clans or Clash Royale in addition to those listed. The second place is it is an endless’ runner’, Subway Surfers.

In terms of aggregate data (again on the left in the screenshot), Monster Strike governs the classification with iron fist, leaving Pokemon Go relegated to the fifth puestom below Mobile Strike, Game of War and Clash of Clans, in addition to the mentioned Monster Strike.
