These are the most downloaded paid Android games of all time on Google Play

On several occasions, we have discussed the most downloaded applications on Google Play, including Facebook and WhatsApp, in addition to various Google proposals. We have also reviewed the list of most downloaded games of all time among Android users, where ‘Subway Surfers’ takes the gold medal, followed by ‘Candy Crush Saga’, both with more than 1 billion downloads. And what do all those applications and games that take the top positions have in common? That they are free, at least as far as their download is concerned, in-app purchases is another matter.

This time, however, we are going to stop at the ranking of most downloaded paid games of the history of Google Play, that is, those whose download does require a disbursement. On pages like Sensor Tower or App Annie, we can see which games and applications are the most downloaded right now in each country, but to find out the ones that have added the most downloads in all these years and throughout the world, we will turn, once more, to App Brain.

Paid games with more than 10 million downloads

Minecraft

The number 1 position in the ranking of most downloaded paid games in the history of Google Play is occupied by ‘Minecraft’ with more than 10 million downloads. And not only that, but today, it is still one of the most downloaded in several countries, which is a milestone if we consider that it came to Android in 2011, first exclusively for the Xperia Play and later for the other terminals.

Its success was such that Microsoft ended up buying its creator, Mojang, a few years later. Basically, this game offers the possibility of explore different worlds to build all kinds of things, whether with friends or alone. The full version of the game is priced at € 6.99 (ad-free) and offers in-app purchases, but there is a free (and time-limited) trial version.

The game that gets the silver medal in number of accumulated downloads, and accompanying ‘Minecraft’ in the feat of having surpassed the figure of 10 million, is ‘Stickman Legends: Shadow War’. Unknown to many, this title in the series of games Stickman proposes various characters that must face dangerous creatures to conquer the dark world using swords, weapons and abilities. Although it costs 0.59 euros, it offers in-app purchases and, mind this, it includes ads.

We went down to the third step of the podium to open the games club with more than 5 million downloads, and we do it with a role-playing game and fantasy perhaps for many he is also a stranger. This is ‘Shadow of Death’, a title inspired by the classic fighting games that gives us to choose between four knights of the shadows and different sets of armor to conquer a hostile world. It costs 0.50 euros, but it includes ads and offers in-app purchases. There is also a free version, but with only one character.

We now move to fourth place, where we find ‘True Skate’, which puts us in the shoes of a skater professional so that, handling the skateboard with our fingers, we perform all kinds of tricks in different settings. It came to Android in 2014 and has accumulated more than 5 million downloads since then. For the 2.09 euros it costs (it has ads), it includes a single scenario, but it offers the possibility of buying additional content with real money or virtual currencies that we will obtain as we complete missions and levels.

As we have seen, there are currently a total of five paid games that have exceeded 5 million downloads on Google Play (very far, obviously, from those free titles that have surpassed a billion). Of all of them, in addition, there are two that have already reached 10 million: ‘Minecraft’ and ‘Stickman Legends: Shadow War’.

In the next group, that of those games that accumulate more than 1 million downloads without reaching 5 million, we have infinity of titles, some as well known as ‘Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’ (7.99 euros), ‘Monument Valley 2’ (5.49 euros) or ‘Geometry Dash’ (1.99 euros), many of which continue to be present in the lists of most downloaded paid games day after day. Two other titles that also appear in those rankings are ‘Stardew Valley’ (8.99 euros) or ‘Monopoly’ (4.99 euros), but they have not yet reached even a million downloads. There will be time for it.
