This Week's iPhone Charts: Minecraft With Guns Wins The Day

Riding high atop the paid iPhone charts this week, CraftedBattle is a Minecraft-style first-person shooter map editor. Build a map, fill it with bots, and fire away. In the number two paid spot this week, actual Minecraft.

What a strange little title to rise to the top of the paid iPhone charts. It doesn’t even feature a multiplayer component — it’s a first-person shooter populated by AI opponents — and still it dominates. It’s a testament to the power and flexibility of Minecraft and Minecraft by-products. If you build it, they will come.

At least this week’s free charts are nice and predictable. Hey there, Temple Run 2! Make yourself comfortable, you’re going to be there a while.
