Lemmings tops UK download chart for June

iFone's latest hit takes the top of the ranking as classic title triumphs again

British publisher iFone has taken the top of the mobile game download chart in the UK once again in June, with its Lemmings title jumping three places from its May ranking to reach number one in the ELSPA-compiled chart.

The game, which is based on the classic DMA Design (latterly Rockstar North) and Psygnosis property, now owned by Sony Computer Entertainment, has proved a massive hit since it launched earlier this year, and last topped the chart back in April.

It's not the first time that iFone has had a major success with a classic franchise, though; the company's biggest hit to date is Tetris, which was ranked third in this month's chart and has been a perennial strong seller for the firm.

InFusio took second place in the chart with its Breakout style title, Wall Breaker, while Infospace's Pub Pool was at number four and Glu Mobile's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was at five - two more games proving their resilience in the charts.

Another Infospace title, SWAT Sniper, is at number six this month, while last month's number one, JAMDAT's LMA Manager 2005, is down to number seven in the chart.

The ranking is rounded out by three titles from EA founder Trip Hawkins' new company, Digital Chocolate - with Pitfall Glacier, Mini Golf Castles and Pitfall Jungle at numbers eight, nine and ten respectively.

The chart is compiled each month by ELSPA using data from all of the UK's major networks - 3, O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone - although no actual auditing can be carried out on the figures provided by the operators, which has led some in the industry to question the value of the resulting chart.
