The realm of mobile gaming is a growing industry, and as more technological innovations improve our favourite smartphones and other handheld devices, we can expect to see more and more games from established and new developers that are built for mobile gamers – yet have the full range of graphics, sound, and interactive experiences that we have come to expect from their console and PC cousins.
The revenue from the mobile gaming industry is set to reach $286.5 billion globally by the end of 2023, and with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.08%, that total revenue is expected to hit $376.70 billion by 2027.
Almost 2 billion people around the world prefer to play games on their mobiles, so what gaming apps should you be downloading today?
The casino is a wonderful place for a special occasion, but an online casino like Bally Casino UK is even better – you can play wherever you are thanks to smartphones and 5G.
If you want the absolute best out of a casino game, then you need to try Slingo. Made exclusively for online casinos, this game combines the best bits of Bingo and slots to create an exhilarating, fast paced and adrenaline-fuelled game that you won’t be able to get enough of.
Start with a Slingo demo so you can get the hang of it, then try with real money and see how much you can win,
Raid: Shadow Legends
Fans of the Role-Playing Game (RPG) genre might get sniffy about gacha RPGs, but Raid: Shadow Legends continues to grow and develop, despite already being out for a few years. Popularity for this game soared thanks to the clever marketing of letting YouTube influencers sell it to their followers, but the game itself is good enough to keep people coming back.
You’ve got great 3D graphics, beautifully crafted backgrounds, and a turn-based RPG that blends both individual missions and PVP battles to make a game where you can develop your own warrior, add new skills and weapons, and lead an army to destroy your enemies.
It’s free to play, but you can expect lots of opportunities to spend real-world cash on microtransactions if you want to rush through and get the best character early.
Call of Duty: Mobile
Despite being part of a well-known console/PC franchise, the Call of Duty: Mobile game is one that was developed specifically for smartphones – which makes it an excellent choice if you want to see what mobile gaming can really achieve.
It’s got all you’d expect from the franchise – First Person Shooter (FPS) genre classics, lots of detail, and smooth gameplay. It is a scaled down (yet perfectly proportioned) chapter of the franchise.
This game is not part of the storyline and does not need to be played in any order – instead, it focuses on the multiplayer online aspect of the series, offering the best bits of Modern Warfare and Black Ops as well as a fun Battle Royale mode.
You can rank up to get the best tactical equipment and weapons or take advantage of microtransactions and loot boxes to get there quicker.
An oldie but a goody, and even if you aren’t interested in the pocket monster franchise this game has some interesting mechanics that are well-worth the look.
For those who don’t know, the idea of Pokémon Go! Is to wander around outside and spot Pokémon in the wild. You can throw Pokeballs at them to catch them, then use them to battle at gyms, battle other trainers, or simply evolve them.
Daily and weekly challenges, rewards for walking you have done, and other related items make it worth coming back to regularly, but it is the augmented reality technology that makes this so special.
Giving the game access to your phone’s camera means that you can look through the screen at your local area and see the monsters in the wild – making it so much more immersive.
This game is a bit hard on battery life, but there is no pressure to spend real money in it as you can have just as much fun by getting outside more (a win-win for the gamers and their health, really).
The last game on this list is one for those who prefer their gaming to be hyper casual. Royal Match is one of the simplest games on the planet – but that is what makes it quite so addictive, really.
The idea of the game is that you need to save a hapless King, who keeps getting himself into all sorts of scrapes. To save him, you need to complete some sort of puzzle (normally something as simple as matching tiles). The result of each win gets you closer to helping him rebuild his castle.
This game is a real winner because you can just pick it up and play it – there is no learning curve, but it is the simplicity that makes it addictive.
