Glu Mobile's Kim Kardashian game, centred around the US celebrity famous for being a vacuous no-talent, made USD1.6m in its first five days on the market.
Castigated by the gaming world's critics, it allows people with more time on their hands than they know what to do with to "keep up with the Khardasians".
Kim Kardashian has allowed her pouting small-waisted, big-arsed, silicon-implanted likeness to be used for the new game, called Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.
The game is now the fifth highest-grossing game on Apple's app store, pulling in $700,000 a day and is reportedly on track to earn USD200 million over the course of a year.
Kim is set to earn a handsome sum from her primary talent, doing nothing much, with reports she is taking a 45pc cut. That means she could pocket over $45 million by the end of the year.
Its developer, Glu Mobile, reported that it generated $US1.6 million in its first five days on the market after its June 27 release.
