Winning in the sphere of mobile game is as coveted as it is mystique. It’s nearly impossible to find out what gamers look for in their mobile games. Even those fancy charts on ‘trends’ don’t work.

While you might find it taxing to get these plethora of game elements to align and give you a great mobile game, here is a proven secret that gives any game – action, casual, cards, war and so on – the power to rule the chart of ‘best games, ever’.
So get ready here it is, the BIG SECRET to make your mobile games truly addictive and phenomenally popular is…..
Brilliant Game Idea, Executed Exceptionally
Often game companies and individuals do have WOW game ideas, but low-grade graphics, shabby coding and uninteresting promotional campaigns snap off the real success potential of the game. Creative designers along with expert iOS or android game developers are the perfect combination for the next Angry Birds or Counter Strike.
Ones you have that right, work on the marketing gimmicks. There’s hardly any alternative to engaging and interesting promotional campaign. Further, pricing of the game is a crucial factor that brings in downloads. Check out others in your game category. See how are they priced and how do you see your revenue streams from game downloads. As the cliché goes – volume or value; price low but have lots of people shelling out money for it or price it at a premium and expect that even if decent number of people buy your game, you can breakeven and make a profit.
