This Week's Android Charts: All Hail The Might Fruit Ninja

Fruit Ninja isn't at the top of the Android charts this week, but it's on both of them, a testament to the staying power of a silly little game about slicing through produce with your finger. If you had told me 10 years ago that a game like this would become a staple of the Android charts, I would have wondered what the hell you were talking about.

I'm still not sure, even today.

3. Wreck-It Ralph Last Week's Position: N/A Ralph shows up a little late to the Android party. Wreck-It Ralph on Google Play

And now we get to the reason that Angry Birds Star Wars no longer tops the paid Android charts.

Top Free Android Games - November 21, 2012

1. Angry Birds Star Wars Last Week's Position: 1 (0) Interesting. Given the choice to pay or not pay for an application, Android users overwhelmingly choose not to pay. This means something. Angry Birds Star Wars on Google Play

2. Hill Climb Racing Last Week's Position: 2 (0) Okay, now that I've played this game for real I can see the appeal. It's an endless driver with amazingly unrealistic physics. I can dig it. Hill Climb Racing on Google Play

3. Temple Run Last Week's Position: 3 (0) You know what Temple Run needs? A Menudo theme song. Temple Run on Google Play

4. Flow Free Last Week's Position: 7 (+3) Flow Free returns to position four with a vengeance. VENGEANCE! Flow Free on Google Play

7. Words with Friends Last Week's Position: 8 (+1) Longest. Conversation. Ever. Words with Friends on Google Play

9. Fruit Ninja Free Last Week's Position: 10 (+1) It never ends. Fruit Ninja Free on Google Play

10. Family Feud and Friends Last Week's Position: 5 (-5) Dropping faster than the average Family Feud host. Family Feud and Friends on Google Play

    ...a silly little game...
    What blasphemy is this?!

    If you had told me 10 years ago that a game like this would become a staple of the Android charts, I would have wondered what the hell you were talking about.

    If you were asked that question 10 years ago, I would have thought you would have asked "What's Android"?
