Mobile Game Development Its Past, Present for Success

Topic Started By: zahra5253       Created: Tue, Apr 21st, 2020, 7:15 am




In the beginning, mobile phones were nothing more than simple voice communication devices. People wouldn’t have even imagined about mobile game development at that time. On 3rd April 1973, Martin Cooper of Motorola made the world’s first mobile phone call to his rival Dr. Engel of Bell labs. Those devices were bulky, large, and plain-looking. Two decades later, IBM introduced the first ever mobile app for a Smartphone.

Mobile gaming is slowly and gradually becoming a craze among Smartphone savvy people, gaining new heights of reputation. The population of casual gamers is increasing by leaps and bounds and so do the gaming industry. A major part of success can be attributed to the App Store, since before that only selected gaming apps were made for mobile. Today, it is so easy to build a mobile game with click and collect capabilities associated with major programming platforms. However, days back the scenario was not same as seen today. Nowadays people want more with gaming stuff, having high expectations with high end games, specifically when made for iOS platform. Mobile gaming apps not only serve the purpose of entertaining users, but have opened new revenue streams with in-app advertising. There are major platforms for mobile, who are today finding it absolutely challenging getting customers to pay upfront for almost everything.
