I crunched through every mobile game on the App Store and ranked them all by revenue in February.

Here are the results:

Monopoly Go was the highest-earning game in the world in February! Our estimates show the blockbuster title earned $108M of net revenue from the App Store and Google Play. A smidge higher than January's total, which is great considering February was a shorter month.

Chinese title King of Glory rose a spot from January to take the second place with $104M in estimated net revenue. Net means what's left after store fees. King of Glory's month-over-month revenue rose 8.3% in February.

January's second place, Royal Match, dropped to third place in February as net revenue dropped 10% to $93M, according to our estimates.

Peace Elite and Candy Crush swapped places in February and round out the top 5 highest earners for the month.

Fewer China-Only titles made the top list in February as Crossfire and TFT Mobile dropped after a strong January. In addition, Pokemon GO is back on the list with $54M of net revenue.

According to our App Intelligence, the top 10 highest-earning games earned $678M of net revenue from the App Store and Google Play in February. Although some of the top games earned more, revenue for the group dropped 4%.
