Stumble Guys dethroned Subway Surfers as the most downloaded game on iOS and climbed one spot. The game performed equally well on Google Play, climbing seven places to number three.

Minion Rush was the 13th most downloaded iOS title, peaking at number 9 on the free game chart the day after the release of Minions: The Rise of Gru thanks to 1.9 million downloads. This once again shows the power of connecting with existing real estate.
Daily Themed Crossword increased its advertising efforts, with 5200 deduplicated ads in app stores – a 477.8 percent increase month-over-month. This strong performance caused the game Word Trip to lose in the iOS ad lists.
Scatter Slot emerged as a particularly strong performer on Android with over 37,600 deduplicated ads. This follows the month of June, when casino games dominated the Android ad lists.
