Mobile game development is a huge industry in terms of user base and revenue. It has the potential to grow even bigger with people spending more and more time on their gadgets. Mobile gaming is spread across devices, operating systems and game types. Mobile games can be developed for multiple purposes such as entertainment, marketing, and learning.

Types Of Mobile Games

Mobiles games can be classified in various ways -

Commercial Models

There are a myriad of game formats available such as puzzles, action, adventure, role playing games (RPG), strategy, sport, and education.


Mobile game development uses different technologies to maximize user engagement -

  • Location based games are based on geo-location technology such as GPS. These games incorporate the player's coordinates and movement within the game.
  • Augmented Reality games use the gamer’s location and generate graphics atop it and use that for playing the game.
  • Multiplayer mobile games allow multiple players to play either synchronously or asynchronously. The players connect over a network or through technologies such as Bluetooth.

Features Of Mobile Games

Mobile gaming is the most popular form of entertainment today. There are millions of mobile games. A mobile game has to challenge the user and keep the user interested in the game. Listed below are key features that make a mobile game successful -

Good Story

The mobile game has to engage the user. This is possible if the game has a story and characters that the user gets attached to. A compelling story and interactive settings will draw the user to the game and entice him to continue playing for a long time.

Great Gameplay

Gameplay defines how players interact with the game. The game rules, the interaction of the player with the game and connections between players in case of multiplayer games are aspects of gameplay. Gameplay defines the types of challenges and rewards that the game offers so that the player keeps coming back for more.

Simple Controls

Newer models of mobiles and tablets have fewer control options and buttons than models built earlier. The game should be ergonomically sound. Users should be able to figure out buttons and clickable elements for control intuitively. The game should provide features such that user input can be streamlined and be simple. Usually, users lose interest in the game if they do not understand the controls and will not be open to try out the game too many times.

Surprise Delight and Challenge

Humans need challenges to thrive. If the game is straightforward, people will lose interest. If the game is too complex, people might give up on playing it. The game should provide surprises through story and graphic elements. It should provide a fun and challenging experience based on proficiency levels.

Offer Rewards

Games should provide targets to be achieved and offer rewards for milestones reached. They should be easily visible too. New levels or targets reward players for their effort and stimulates them to continue playing for further unlockable elements. This will make the gamers remain invested in the game.

Provide For Competitive Play

Competition incites gamers to play more and perform better. The ability to play with and against friends increases game engagement. Mobile game development should provide features for real and virtual competitors.
