Wtf moment, Free game in top grossing?

I was just browsing among the top grossing games on the AppStore and I come across a game ranked #20 called Red Ball, and it's free? Now, I was under the influence that top grossing essentially means, most money being earned. How then does one free Red Ball accumulate enough money to be in that list?

Red ball has dlc and that counts towards top grossing.
