Kim Kardashian is best known for her reality show, but she might soon be making more money from another medium: mobile gaming.

As strange as it sounds, the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app is a huge hit with gamers, and that's put her in line for a pretty big payday. In the game, Kardashian's character coaches players on how to be celebrity. There are some tough challenges like avoiding mean tweets.

The game is free on Apple iOS and Android, but it could still rake in $200 million dollars in revenue.

TMZ believes they’ve seen the fine print of her contract, which gives Kim Kardashian herself 45 percent of net profits. With $200M in revenue and reportedly only about $10M in expenses, that’s about $85M for Kardashian outright.

The game is a huge success for developer Glu Mobile. It's currently ranked #2 on Apple's free game charts. It's even got a five-star rating with over 100,000 reviews! Since it launched, the company's stock has risen 42 percent!

Do you think other celebrities are going to take notice and try to make their own mobile games? Let me know which of your favorite celebs you'd like to game with on your gadget.
