Most Downloaded Mobile Games On iOS For 2017

mobile games ranked

Mobile gaming has seen a rapid growth in both titles available, and popularity among consumers. Gaming powerhouses Nintendo even made a huge splash within this particular market, with Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, and - most recently, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. To see who reigned supreme over at the Apple camp, the company behind the iOS market has released the top spots in handheld gaming for both free and paid categories.

Did yours make the top? Any ones you're surprised to see? Check out this year's ranked list so far in the provided tally below. For those that may be confused as to why the more heavy hitters seem to be missing, this takes everything downloaded throughout the year - and Animal Crossing only just recently came out. So, without further adieu:
