App Store Top Ten: Week of June 6, 2011

It’s nice to finally see some movement in the number one slot over the weeks. This week the crown for the top selling game goes to Feed Me Oil, a brand new physics puzzler about managing oil spills and feeding giant creatures. The top grossing list sees less shuffling around this week, with just iMobsters making a comeback and landing in the number nine slot. See the rest of both lists below, along with links to the App Store and our reviews.

#9: iMobsters
