App Store Top Ten: Week of October 25, 2010

It’s mostly business as usual on the App Store top 10 this week, but a couple of new titles have appeared on the list. Angry Birds Halloween has scared up a flurry of sales with its new levels and spooky graphics, but that hasn’t stopped people from buying the original, which comes in at number three. Also new this week is Reckless Racing, an arcade driving game with Southern charm. Read on for the full results.
