"King of Glory, a popular MOBA mobile game, continues to be the company's top-performing title in terms of revenues," the report revealed. "The most installed Tencent game is Happy Lord, released at the end of 2015 and is favored by people of all ages and playable across both low- and high-end devices."

Other Android games from Tencent included in the top 10 highest grossing list include Happy Elements in fourth place, Crossfire in sixth, Tian Tian Xuan Dou in eighth and Hou Ying Ren Zhen in ninth.

Meanwhile, its Myapp store also ranks first among China's distribution channels, with a staggering 24 percent installation rate, leaving Xiaomi's MIUI App Store and 360 Mobile Assistant far behind in second place with only 18 percent.

Tencent's dominance in the world's most populous nation is likely to grow more after its deal with Clash Royale and Clash of Clans maker Supercell officially closes this summer.

According to Newzoo's report, Clash Royale secured the third and sixth spots on app channel 360 Mobile Assistance and Baidu Mobile Assistance store's top downloadable games lists. "We believe it won't take long for the title to appear in the ranking of China's No. 1 Android app store - Tencent's Myapp store."
