Games for mobile devices are ever-growing in popularity. Casual gaming has increased dramatically with the ubiquity of smartphones and tablets that allow games to be more accessible to users on the move.

Indie game developers often overlook the benefits of mobile platforms with aspirations of having the next big console or PC game. Deep in the gaming communities, there is a notion that one must invest a great deal of time and money on high-quality graphics and storylines to compete with prominent names in the gaming landscape.
Fortunately, many start-ups have gotten in on the action by creating simple games that quickly gain mainstream popularity thanks to engaging User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) design concepts and addictive gameplay.

Without complex story lines, intense graphics or confusing mechanics, mobile games generally turn out to be more user-friendly, which means more people are likely to play and have a positive UX.

Additionally, being less expensive to develop makes the mobile gaming industry easier to penetrate. These savings translate to casual gamers who are more likely to make micro-purchases over one that is $60 plus for PCs and consoles. These small purchases can quickly add up.

With a fragmented smartphone hardware market, developers can maximize their exposure and reach by using tools like Xamarin. This tool makes the task of developing for multiple platforms like Windows, iOS and Android easier than ever with a write once, run anywhere concept. Indie developers looking to create native games for multiple platforms should check out the mobile game development services Chetu offers.
