Once again, the time has come for everyone to reflect and look back on the past year.
So we thought we’d ask Mobile Mavens, a group of gaming industry experts, a few questions about the past year and what 2024 has in store.
Here we ask:
What was your favorite mobile game this year?
When it comes to the game I’ve spent the most time playing, it’s definitely Marvel Snap. This is perfect to play during your commute on public transport. Sadly, it was released in 2022, so you’ll have to choose something different this year.
I don’t think my choice will surprise anyone, but I still choose Honkai: Star Rail. Yes, this isn’t mobile exclusive, but it’s another example of miHoYo’s magic. The game boasts stylish visuals and design, engaging gameplay (even if you’re not a fan of turn-based JRPGs, it offers a quality of life improvement in this regard), and interesting lore and story. Masu.
We support the community that voted Marvel Snap as their favorite mobile game of the year (at the 15th Annual Unity Awards). The team at Marvel Snap has managed to create an engaging and fun game loop that keeps players coming back for more. They expertly combined great sound art and animation, and the game has since taken the world by storm.
I enjoy watching my son play Fortnite (I’m too slow for that) and a mobile fitness game called Walking Planet that I’m publishing under the New Growth Partnership Initiative. The initial retention numbers are the highest we have ever seen.
A true frozen city! That game is amazing.
My personal favorite game of the year is Marvel Contest of Champions (Kabam), a game that has gone from strength to strength over the years. There have been significant innovations to the game, with enhancements to the gameplay format, especially team formats such as Alliance Quests. Character development has been great, with more Marvel characters with unique abilities added to the roster, and some of the older characters improved as well.
Marvel Snap has the most engaging gameplay and CCG design innovation, Arena Breakout has the best gameplay adaptation from PC to mobile, Monopoly Go has record-breaking revenue, and Whiteout Survival + Frozen City makes a great business case. Masu.
For me, the standout title of 2023 is Resident Evil Village. This game pushed the boundaries of what mobile gaming could be. It’s more than just a port. A complete triple-A experience designed for mobile platforms. Playing Resident Evil Village on your mobile device feels like carrying a console-quality game in your pocket.
The graphics and performance of the game on mobile devices is amazing. They’ve managed to translate the intense, atmospheric experience of the console version into a format that’s accessible on the go. This proves how far mobile gaming has come.
This year has been a remarkable year for creative new games on mobile. There are too many great studios making great games to name. One of the games he really enjoyed playing with some of his teammates here is Boom!. With one button. Its gameplay is right up my alley. It features interesting physics, emotes, and turn-based gameplay.
In 2023, some great mobile games hit the market, including: 1. DC Heroes and Villains of Jam City. 2. Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft Rumble. 3. Scopely’s Monopoly GO.
