Top 10 most downloaded apps (Paid):

Minecraft: Pocket Edition

is one of the best games that Android gamers have ever experienced because it is a sandbox video game that first brought with it the concept of a pixelated environment. This game has been Mojang’s top money earner as the first version was so successful that subsequent updates were released and they got even more popular than its predecessor. The game is based on a pixelated character who has to roam around the world and build constructions. There are some modes that users can play to make things more exciting. There is a free roam mode where the player can roam around anywhere and there is a survival mode where the character has to concentrate on building and also look out for enemies that might prove fatal. The last mode is the creative mode where players can create the whole level according to their choices. Other players can then try and complete the stage. Here is the official download link of the app on the Google Play Store.

Minecraft: Story Mode

is the second paid app that is available on the Google Play Store. It is not that big of a surprise because Minecraft is really popular all over the world because of its gaming interface and its unique environment. This version of Minecraft is a bit different because it is a point and click adventure where the building and crafting elements are still present but the twist is in the collecting of items, the solving of puzzles, and the conversations with non-playing characters. The developer Telltale Games sought to make the game unique by putting in some additional features and it can be said that it has successfully done so considering the second place it has secured in the top paid most downloaded apps list. Here is the official download link of the app on the Google Play Store.

Where’s My Water

This game that is placed third on this list is a little less known but its ranking suggests otherwise. Where’s My Water is a little less known because it is not typically a game for adults but the developer is big enough not to make a foolish game and, therefore, whatever has been done with it is absolute fun for children and kids. This game was released in 2011 by Disney Mobile which is a subsidiary of Disney Interactive Studios and the game involves a character called Swampy who is an alligator. The gameplay involves digging tunnels so that the alligator can have water to get a good bath. Once the required amount of water is collected for Swampy to have a bath the level is completed but the user must be careful because if the tunnels are not rightly created then the water might flow away altogether. Users must also be careful with the water because there might be a poison or some other liquid in it which might kill the alligator. There are also rubber ducks that can be collected to gain bonus points. Here is the official download link of the app on the Google Play Store.

Asphalt 7 Heat

The game that is number 4 in this list is Asphalt 7 Heat. Gameloft has been creating some wonderful games in recent years and Asphalt is one of its highest revenue earning franchise.

Remember how you and I and other gamers tapped right and left on the screen endlessly to swing the car in the right direction?

There are some aspects of the game like the adrenaline mode and the objectives that have been brought forward from the Asphalt 6 Adrenaline and new editions include newer car models which are very exciting to look at.
