The Transformation of Smartphone Gaming Industry
Ever since we got a phone in our hands, let alone a smartphone, we have needed some sort of distraction, in the form of a mobile game for all those spare moments, sitting at the dentist’s office, or even when you are sitting on the loo with nothing better to do. However, we have come a long way from those days when mobile phone games were only a means of killing time. The advent of smartphones and the option of staying connected throughout the day and across the week means that the mobile gaming industry, in particular, could evolve. Mobile phone games, across all OS, Android, iOS, even Windows have managed to adapt and encourage even those smartphone users who were never really the kind of people to play computer games, or in other words who were not strictly ‘gamers’ in the traditional sense of the word, to pick up their phones and start playing.
With time, this has evolved from 2D gaming into 3D gaming as companies across the world try and ensure that their games are the best and the most up-to-date ones available that will allow their players to have the best gaming experience possible. Here is a countdown of some of the best games that have made it across the Android and iOS platforms:
