Tetris refuses to tumble
UK mobile download charts show puzzler firmly on top
The UK mobile download charts for February show another top month for Jamdat, as its flagship license sticks firmly in first place, beating several newcomers including Sega's legendary mascot Sonic the Hedgehog.
With Sonic in second place, Jamdat sneaks in another top seller, as LMA Manager 2006 climbs into third, followed by I-play's Torino 2006 - the official mobile game of the winter Olympic Games, which just misses the bronze medal and seats itself in fourth place.
The million-selling Who Wants To Be A Millionaire from Glu Mobile rests in fifth place, followed by top ten staple Block Breaker Deluxe from Gameloft in sixth place. A couple more classics fill the next two spots, with iFone's Monopoly and Player X' Family Fortunes taking seventh and eighth place respectively.
EA clings to the top ten download chart with The Sims 2 in at nine, while Namco finishes off the line-up with its seminal pill-chomping arcade title, Pac-Man.
Whilst EA's acquisition of Jamdat could result in a number of additional videogame conversions hitting the Java download charts, it appears the quick-fire classics are pretty well suited to the tastes of UK mobile gamers, taking up over half of the most popular ten downloads.
