Infographic: The Most Expensive Gaming Apps

expensive gaming appsMost games, like Candy Crush and Flappy Bird have made millions from in-app advertising and purchases, but that’s evidently not the only way to make a profit from mobile games. Today, we’re sharing an unusual list of high-priced apps – the kinds that are absurdly cost-prohibitive.

The top of the list is a notable $349.99 football, aka soccer, app that’s called Barcelona vs. Madrid made by Alina Avdeeva. The game was released in September of 2012 and has yet to be updated. Meanwhile, two customers have left interesting reviews, one stating that the app has the “usual graphics” and the other admitting that the app is a “little TOO expensive.”  With just nine ratings, the app comes in at an average of 2 out of 5 stars. It’s evidently not doing very well. Adeeva’s other $349.99 game, Perfect Penalty 2012, is suffering a similar fate with plenty of 1 star reviews that reads like this: This is a stupid game.
