March is behind us which means it's time to crunch the numbers and rank the most downloaded mobile games in the world for the month.

March was a busy month for mobile games with lots of shuffling on the App Store and overall.

The most downloaded game on the App Store in March was Brawl Stars, with 4M new downloads globally, according to our estimates. Brawl Stars is a pretty popular game that hasn't made it into our charts in a long time.

Unfortunately for Brawl Stars, it didn't make it into the overall charts which requires massive success on Google Play.

The most downloaded game in our combined charts was none other than Subway Surfers, with 19M estimated downloads. Just like February. Roblox rose a post since last month to claim the second spot in the combined ranking with 16M estimated downloads.

Two hypercasual titles and Free Fire round out the top five most downloaded games in the world in March.

It's worth noting that every spot on the App Store has a different game in it when compared to February. Give on Google Play and seven in the combined chart. More movement means more opportunities for new titles, and that's good.

Together, the top 10 most downloaded games in March made their way into 136M new devices, according to our estimates. The same as in February.
