Top iPhone games: ‘Amaze!!!’, ‘Pick Me Up’, ‘Roller Splat!’
Tile painting game “Amaze!!!”, “Pick Me Up” and “Roller Splat!” prove popular worldwide, while “Words Story” finds favor in South East Asia and “Run Race 3D” could spread around the globe after taking pole position on the United States iPhone games chart on April 2, 2019.
Two very similar tile-painting games are tussling for supremacy in North American, European and other English-speaking iOS App Stores worldwide.
In both “Amaze!!!” and “Roller Splat!”, players move a colored ball around a tiled level, with the aim of painting each and every blank square as they go.
Both released in February, with French-made “Roller Splat!” toting more impressive graphics, hitting version 1.0 and reaching top spot in several regional charts before Israeli-produced “Amaze!!!”.
Yet it’s now “Amaze!!!” that is clinching top spot in the Canadian, French and United Kingdom App Store game charts, ahead of its forerunner “Roller Splat!”, at 11 a.m. on April 2, 2019.
On the other hand, it’s “Roller Splat!” that is ahead in Germany, South Africa and the Netherlands with a number one App Store rank in the Games category.
“Roller Splat!” is also close behind its rival in France and the U.K., with number two Games chart rank, one place ahead in the United States at number three and 11 spots in advance in Japan at number two.
Another iOS game currently riding high in iPhone charts around the world is ride-sharing driving sim “Pick Me Up”, in which players simply tap and hold to drive, release to brake and collect customers and cash from roads overlaid on a map background.
It is the top download in Singapore, second in Canada and South Africa, third in the U.K. and Australia, fourth in France and the Netherlands and fifth in Germany.
Guessing game “Draw It”, target puzzle “Twist Hit!” and ricochet challenge “Mr Bullet – Spy Puzzles” are also regular occurrences in regional App Store Game chart top fives.
Meanwhile, stick-figure prison break-out puzzle “Word Story” wins general approval in South East Asia, appearing as a top five download in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines, while colorful wall-jumping multiplayer “Run Race 3D” is poised to become the next global success after nailing pole position in the U.S., showing good momentum elsewhere.
These games can be downloaded in the iOS App Store as they battle for the top spot in the charts. CE/JB
