How to Make Mobile Games More Fun
Mobile games are a great way to pass the time and have some fun, but what makes a mobile game truly addictive? There are a number of factors that come into play, including gameplay, graphics, story, and rewards.
If you’re a game developer, here are a few tips on how to make your mobile games more fun, courtesy of the #1 mobile game publisher in the Middle East, Tamatem Games:
- Make the gameplay easy to learn but difficult to master. Players should be able to pick up your game and start playing right away, but they should also be challenged to keep coming back for more. Battle of the Kings is where we’ve utilised this approach.
- Add a variety of levels and challenges. This will keep players engaged and prevent the game from getting boring. VIP Jalsat, for example, is a number of games within one game.
- Make the graphics and sound effects appealing. Mobile games are often played on small screens, so it’s important to have crisp, colourful graphics and catchy sound effects.
- Create a compelling story or characters. This will give players more incentive to keep playing and see what happens next. Our players keep coming back to Fashion Queen, the most popular Arabic-language video game as of the writing of this blog!
- Offer rewards for progress and achievements. This will keep players motivated and coming back for more.
Here are a few additional tips that can make your mobile games more fun:
- Add social features. Players love to compete with their friends and share their accomplishments. You can add social features to your game, such as leaderboards, challenges, and co-op gameplay. This has been the biggest selling point of VIP Baloot.
- Offer regular updates. This will keep players engaged and coming back for more. You can add new levels, challenges, and features to your game on a regular basis.
- Make your game free-to-play. This will make it more accessible to a wider range of players. You can still monetise your game through in-app purchases, but players who do not want to spend should always have a fulfilling experience.
By following these tips, you can create mobile games that are more fun and engaging for players. This will lead to more downloads, higher ratings, and more revenue for your game.
