This Week's Android Charts: Victory for the Incumbents

Now that last week's excitement has passed it's back to business as usual from the weekly Android chart, with Minecraft re-elected into the top paid spot by a narrow margin.

There are plenty of familiar faces showing up in this week's Android charts, from Rovio's stable of birds and pigs to your own family and friends, trapped in a hellish nightmare quizscape they don't deserve. How could you?

I'm not sure if I am excited for tomorrow's Angry Birds Star Wars because of the game itself or the havok it's going to wreck on these charts. Hopefully there'll be a free version to mix our second list up as well.
