Slavic developers occupy App Store’s top ten lists

Russian designed games are becoming increasingly popular, and some even show the longevity to be more than a fad

Draw Rider, a game developed by Anton Vazhinsky, is number two in the top ten free apps for iPhone and iPad during the 15th week of 2013. Other Russian designed games such as 100 Doors of Revenge (iPhone, 4th place) and Puzzle with Matches (iPad, 6th place) follow suit.

Pimp Your Screen, an app from Belarusian Apalon, was in the top ten paid app list for seven weeks this year, and is back again this week. BADLAND climbed the paid app rankings for both iPhone (4th) and iPad (2nd).

Stay Alight! has topped the rankings for iPad since its release. Temple Run:Oz has been in the top ten paid apps for five weeks now. The longevity record is held by Swampy the Alligator, which in addition to having never dropped off the top ten lists had garnered thousands of five-star reviews.

Since App Store opened in 2008, users of Apple devices have downloaded more than 40 billion apps.
