While the COVID-19 pandemic has kept spreading across the world and the lockdown has still been applied in many countries, people tend to download gaming apps more times than ever. In India, there has been a significant increase in the downloads of popular apps.

Gaming Apps
The most-downloaded gaming apps include My Talking Tom Friends, Stack Colors, and Subway Surfers.

Accordingly, the number of downloads of Stack Colors and My Talking Tom Friends in India was higher than that in any other country in the world. These two apps were released in June. Sensor Tower reported that My Talking Tom Friends was downloaded 3.6 crore times last month while Stack Colors collected 3.2 crore downloads. It’s not surprising that they have led the download list in the gaming segment.

When it comes to the highest installs of My Talking Tom Friends, India and Brazil were two countries to rank No.1 and No.2 on this list, with 29.7% and 11% respectively. The second game, Stack Colors, garnered 18.6% of the contribution in India and 8.7% in Indonesia.

For those unknown, Iza and Samo Login founded video game developer Outfit7 in Slovenia. Back in 2017, United Luck Consortium acquired this company and sold it to Zhejiang Jinke in China for more than $1B (about Rs7,487 crore). Meanwhile, Stack Colors is a product of French company Voodoo.

SYBO Games’s Subway Surfers is recognized as the app with the globally third-highest downloads in July. The contribution in India reached 20% for this game last month. It was downloaded 2.3 crore times.

Speaking of the number of downloads, PUBG used to be one of the three most-loved gaming apps in this country from March to May. Although the Indian government didn’t ban PUBG, the decrease in downloads of this app may come from boycotting Chinese apps. In the two most recent months, PUBG just ranked No.5 on the list of most-downloaded gaming apps.

When it comes to Indian apps, Ludo King is the only game to remain its spot on the list of top 10 gaming apps in the world. This app sat on the 8th spot last month.

According to Sensor Tower’s report, Ludo King was also downloaded the most in India from April to June. It managed to collect 483 lakh installs while PUBG Mobile was installed 308 lakh installs.
