    They made LOTS of money

    If Gameloft sells over 6 million games. And if those games cost at least $5. Then Gameloft sold over $30,000,000 worth of games in about the past year.

    That is pretty good. Without Apple's cut, that means Gameloft profited $21,000,000 in the past year on the iPhone/iPod platform alone.
