Stumble Guys from Kitka Games was the most downloaded mobile game worldwide for July 2022 with 30.5 million installs, which represented an approximately 10 times increase from July 2021. The countries with the most installs of the game during this period were Indonesia at 19.4 percent of its total downloads and the United States at 10.4 percent. The full top 10 ranking of mobile games worldwide by downloads for July 2022 is above. Game download estimates are from Sensor Tower’s Store Intelligence platform.

Subway Surfers from Sybo Games was the second most installed mobile game worldwide last month with 26.2 million downloads, which represented a 40.6 percent increase from July 2021. The countries with the largest number of Subway Surfers installs were India at approximately 15 percent, followed by Brazil at 10.3 percent. Garena Free Fire from Garena, Roblox from Roblox Corporation, and Ludo King from Gametion rounded out the top five most installed mobile games worldwide for the month.

The global mobile games market generated 4.8 billion downloads across the App Store and Google Play in July 2022, marking an increase of 1.5 percent year-over-year. The No. 1 market for global game downloads was India, which accumulated approximately 784 million installs, or 16.2 percent of total worldwide downloads. The U.S. ranked No. 2 for downloads at 8.6 percent, followed by Brazil at 8.5 percent.

Only two titles in the top 10 overall downloads rankings were in the Hypercasual genre: Bridge Race from Supersonic Studios and Hair Tattoo from Azur Games. During July, Sensor Tower Game Intelligence shows that Hypercasual games generated 973.2 million downloads worldwide across the App Store and Google Play, the first time the category has dropped below one billion installs in a month since November 2020. That’s despite an overall rise in downloads across the mobile games market, which is facing challenges from global inflation, a cost of living crisis and privacy changes such as IDFA deprecation and recent alterations to Google Play’s ads policies.
