Among Us may be the mobile game of this year 2020. Going viral in recent months, the online game developed by InnerSloth already occupied the top spots in App Store and Play Store downloads during the month of last november. But according to a study by AppFigures, the game ended the year very well with 48 million new downloads, thus remaining at the top of the charts on both platforms, iOS and Android.
While the bulk of these new downloads were on Android, around 75%. Downloads from the App Store were enough to make Among Us the most popular mobile game this month.
Apple itself, recognized the success of the application in its ranking of “trends of 2020” giving pride of place to Among Us. The apple brand took the opportunity to recall the importance of games mobiles on its platform. They are indeed responsible for the vast majority of expenses made by users and allow Apple, thanks to its famous commission, to earn a small jackpot each year.
The AppFigures study also shows that downloads from the App Store are still very far from Android figures. Indeed on the top 10 mobile games, 18% of downloads came from the Apple platform. The remaining 80% had been made on Android’s Google Play.
Among the ten games in this ranking, some regulars, present for years in the download platforms are still popular. This is particularly the case with Subway Surfers, the game was developed in the early 2010s and has since become a benchmark for mobile games, without ever making a place for itself at the top of the rankings.
