App Store Top Ten: Week of July 26, 2010

In this week’s Top Ten Games on iTunes, Angry Birds keeps flapping at number one, while a major discount on Modern Combat: Sandstorm lands it high on the list. And Star Wars: Battle For Hoth, which was at number six last week, has vanished from the list faster than Han Solo’s race through the Kessel Run. Reviews, buy links, and more after the jump!

#1: Angry Birds

Our Score: 4/4

Our Bottom Line: Destructive physics help make this a very charming puzzler, and the great level variety seals the deal.

#7: Risk: The Official Game

Our Score: 3/4

Our Bottom Line: Not as robust as some of the imitators that hit the App Store first, but Risk: The Official Game is a faithful rendition of the classic board game.

#8: Bejeweled 2 + Blitz

Our Score: 3/4

Our Bottom Line: Bejeweled 2 is a classic Match-3 game that has proved just as addictive as its original version, though it does not have enough creativity for our top recommendation.

#9: All-in-One Gamebox

Our Score: 2/4

Our Bottom Line: Though you can’t argue with so many games for such a cheap price, many are simply chaff, a few high points dragged down by a lot of lows.

#10: 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 predecessors for its own good.
