Mobile Games: Why Mobile Game Platforms Are So Popular
Mobile Games have become an increasingly important part of our daily lives. Children as young as two are playing these interactive games, which can be found on smart phones, PDAs and other mobile devices. In this article we will be discussing what are the different types of mobile games available on the market today. As a gamer myself I am going to give a brief overview of some of the most popular ones that children and adults alike are enjoying.
The first type of mobile games are those that are designed and developed for mobiles. Such examples would be the iPhone and its various other apps, Blackberry Curve and Q10’s etc. mobiles have been used for a very long time to interact with others, and now it has become possible to use smartphones for doing just that. The term mobile games generally covers any games which are played on any mobile device, which includes from old fashioned mobile phones, tablet, PDA, smart phones, to modern smart phones, with and or without networking capability.
The second kind of mobile games are those that are designed and developed for cell phones which are not designed and developed by a specific company or manufacturer. Such examples would be the Google smartphone apps, which run on the Android platform and can be accessed with either a Bluetooth headset or a bluetooth mouse. The third kind of mobile games are those that use the Bluetooth headset and/or a bluetooth mouse to function. These can be found on the Android platform as well as on several other platforms including Windows Mobile and Symbian Slance.
The fourth and final kind of mobile games are those which are designed and developed for both mobile devices and computers. The reason why many games are developed for various devices is because people want to have control over which device they are playing the game on, so they can control where they go, when they go there and how they proceed, in-game. In this way, players can ensure that they are enjoying the game while not being locked into having their hands on their mobile devices. This has led to many games being developed for different platforms.
As an example, one of the most popular and most successful mobile games today is Angry Birds, which can be played on an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. This is created by the award winning Rovia Games S.L., a company based in Spain. The company also produces mobile games for a variety of different devices, including Windows Mobile, Blackberry, and Symbian. Because Angry Birds has been created for several different devices, including an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and the Android smartphone, it is actually possible to play the game on more than one mobile phone or mobile device.
Another example of mobile games that have managed to appeal to a lot of people is Plants Vs. Zombies, which was originally developed as an iPhone application. However, it soon became free to download to both the iPhone and the iPad. Now, it has moved from being solely a paid app to being offered as part of a free video game offer from all the major mobile game consoles.
