Crash Bandicoot: On The Run saw over 8 million downloads on its official launch day, and things haven’t slowed down since. In the week following its release, On The Run managed to reach the 24 million install milestone.
The news comes from Sensor Tower, which reached out to TheGamer with its latest data.
“Following its official launch on March 25 and up to March 31, the title has now generated close to 24 million downloads across the App Store and Google Play,” said Craig Chapple, mobile insights strategist at Sensor Tower. “However, since March 23, when it released early on the App Store, the title has picked up more than 27 million downloads.”
The United States was the top market for installs, followed by Brazil, Mexico, Russia, and the UK.
To put those numbers into perspective, PUBG Mobile saw 28 million installs during its first week on the market. That title has since gone on to earn over $5 billion in lifetime revenue. It also managed to average over $7 million a day throughout 2020.
We’re still waiting on official revenue numbers for Crash Bandicoot: On The Run, although all signs point to an impressive debut.
If you’re having trouble with Crash’s new auto-runner ways, Stephen Jarret – VP of Game Design at King – put together a shortlist of tips to help you out. This includes:
- Learning each enemies weakness
- Checking out every path on every level to unlock new content and collectibles
- Making liberal use of the Body Slam ability

League of Legends: Wild Rift is another popular mobile game giving Crash a run for his money, as it saw 3 million downloads the day its open beta launched in the Americas. Most of its players seem to love the ways it changes up the iconic LoL formula, offering shorter battles while still keeping all the strategy.
Crash Bandicoot: On The Run is now available for free on iOS and Android.
