App Store Top Ten: Week of July 12, 2010

    This week on the App Store Top Ten, there was very little movement among some of the top games: Angry Birds, Doodle Jump, and Doodle God still hold the top spots. However, a few newcomers joined the party, like Cake Doodle, Archetype, and EA’s FIFA World Cup 2010 and Battleship. Read on for the Top Ten games on iTunes, with our review links.

    #1: Angry Birds

    Our Score: 4/4

    #6: Fruit Ninja

    Our Score: 3/4

    Our Bottom Line: Next time you’re waiting for a haircut, cut up some fruit while you wait. It probably did something to deserve it.

    #7: Skee-Ball

    Our Score: 3/4

    #8: FIFA World Cup

    Our Score: 3/4

    Our Bottom Line: This FIFA game glorifies the World Cup, but it’s much too similar to its predecessor for its own good.

    #9: Tetris

    Most helpful iTunes user review: “Endless marathon mode, original song as an option, these things added in the next update. Who agrees with me?”

    #10: Battleship

    Our Score: 3/4

    Our Bottom Line: If you have fond memories of the childhood game, this is a solid recreation that inexplicably lacks an online component.
