"Every week, sister iPhone site FingerGaming rounds up the top-grossing iPhone and iPod Touch applications, as current that day in the iTunes App Store, and this chart is now available on Gamasutra.

This week's U.S. iPhone revenue charts see Tetris going up against Call of Duty: World at War Zombies for the top spot, while The Sims 3 overtakes N.O.V.A.



This chart allows end users to see who is making the most money on the App Store that day. It differs significantly from the Top 10 Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies.

Data comes courtesy of Apple's public sales information. All titles in the App Store's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings.

This week's top-grossing U.S. App Store titles are:

1. Call of Duty: World at War Zombies ($9.99)
2. Tetris ($2.99)
3. The Sims 3 ($6.99)
4. N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance ($6.99)
5. Bejeweled 2 ($2.99)
6. Need for Speed: Shift ($6.99)
7. The Simpsons Arcade ($4.99)
8. Scrabble ($2.99)
9. Skee-Ball ($0.99)
10. Rock Band ($6.99)

Activision's Call of Duty: World at War Zombies remains the App Store's highest-grossing game after retaking the top chart spot last week. EA's Tetris rises up from fifth place to finish second in today's results, while The Sims 3 beats out Gameloft's FPS N.O.V.A. for third place.

PopCap's Bejeweled 2 moves up to fifth following a seventh-place finish last week. EA's The Simpsons Arcade makes its chart debut at seventh place, meanwhile, landing between the publisher's other popular titles Scrabble and Need for Speed: Shift.

EA's Rock Band falls to tenth place this week, shortly after returning to its original price of $6.99. Freeverse's Skee-Ball moves up a spot to take ninth, and finishes as this week's top App Store seller by volume."
