MOSCOW, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Longtime app market sales champions Clash of Clans and Game of War were surpassed today by Elex's Clash of Kings, a strategy mobile game that was launched a year ago.

Clash of Clans and Game of War had comfortablly held first place in the App Store and Google Play's Top Grossing Apps charts respectively. Given the long-term popularity of these two games, it's unusual for a newcomer to take over both of the top chart spots as quickly as Clash of Kings has.

The Top Grossing Apps sections of the App Store and Google Play feature the current leading apps in terms of revenue intake, effectively tracking customer purchases in real time. Though Clash of Kings is available as a free download, players can purchase optional in-game perks using real cash, driving its quick rise in the store rankings.

Compared with Clash of Clans and Game of War, Clash of Kings ranks highly on the Top Grossing charts (1st on both App Store and Google Play) with a low rank on the Top Free charts (128th on App Store and 135th on Google Play). It is evident that there are a smaller number of total users but they are demonstrating a much higher-than-average ARPU. It could be interesting to see what results the game could achieve if it reaches even a ranking of No. 10 in the Top Free charts.

Elex launched Clash of Kings on the Google Play Store 12 months ago and brought the game onto the App Store nearly 7 months back. Since then the franchise has been downloaded over 50 million times worldwide. Moreover, Clash of Kings has consistently been ranked within the top 5 grossing apps on Google Play and the App Store in 70 and 20 countries respectively.
