This Week’s Android Charts: This Little Piggy Went To Minecraft

Yesterday we brought back the weekly top 10 iPhone app chart. Today we debut the Android version, which is a lot like the iPhone one only you can hack it easier and it doesn't involve dealing with Apple.

Yes, this is the sort of list you can get by hitting up Google Play and clicking about a few times, but it's just the first one. Next week we can start tracking trends, monitoring rank slippage and generally getting all analytical up in here. Today we'll just make snide comments.

Top Paid Android Games - 10/17/2012

1. Minecraft Pocket Edition

We'll be seeing a lot of Minecraft in this spot. I'm pretty sure it's been sitting here since the day it was released.

2. Angry Birds Space Premium Edition

There's a free version that we'll be touching on shortly, but some people just really like giving Rovio money, and Rovio is OK with that.

3. Where's My Water?

Disney's fluid dynamics puzzler — there's a phrase I never thought I'd find myself writing — where was I?

4. Cut the Rope

That the ridiculously awesome Om Nom is not at the very top of not just this but every list imaginable boggles the mind.

Otherwise known as a number three with a side of Phineas and Ferb.

9. Grand Theft Auto III

It's heartening that more than a decade after its original release people are still recognising the greatness of Grand Theft Auto III.

10. Fruit Ninja

I'm not sure if people really love ninjas or people really hate fruit. Either way, Fruit Ninja wins.

But wait, there's more! We've also got a list of the top 10 free Android games! Now how much would you pay?

Free. They are free.

5. Flow Free

Color puzzler Flow Free occupies the same spot on the free Android charts as it does on the free iPhone charts. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.

Making Alec Baldwin go insane on an aeroplane is the gift that never stops giving.
