The mobile games industry will account for 28 percent of all video-game industry revenue, according to researcher Strategy Analytics.

Some things which were common between most of the games are listed below. Mobile devices have a small screen and thus games which require coordination with multiple keystrokes do not work well on it.
How to increase your viral coefficient (k-factor)
This is one of the reasons behind the popularity of these games as most of these can be played by just a finger or a single keystroke. You either need to swipe vertically or horizontally. Do you remember Fruit Ninja?
It only took a swipe of your fingers across the screen to cut the fruits. Or Angry Birds, where you just need to pull the catapult to launch the birds. Unlike arcade games where one needs to coordinate between multiple senses and jump, fire, etc. Let's say you. When it comes to Temple Run, you already know the path till where you got caught by the monster.
You cheated not only the game, but you became a meme
It was the fact that you barely missed it and want to take a second shot at success now that you already know the path and obstacles. This forces you to play again and again to increase the score and it thus drives the engagement. Publisher: Dunfan Lu. Share Embed. Add to Cart.
