This Week's Android Charts: Bard Sharks

It's week two of our continuing coverage of the Google Play top charts, and you know what that means—last week's positions are go! Did your favorite game move up the charts? Slip down? Why are you so concerned? Where did these sharks come from?

While there hasn't been a great deal of movement in the Android charts over the past week, there are a few pleasant surprises. Most notably is the appearance of The Bard's Tale on the paid charts, once again proving that older PC gamers love themselves some Android.

And hey, there's a Jaws game on the free charts. What's that all about?
