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

#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.
