Mobile Games

In a mobile game market that’s always growing, and is increasingly saturated, it may be hard to develop a game that stands out from the rest of the pack. These four mobile features can help make sure that your game takes full advantage of its platform and the latest developments in the mobile game market.

Social Integration

Your players probably have a Facebook, and there’s a good chance they’re on other social platforms, like Twitter or Instagram. Take advantage of this! If your game features a competitive element and you expect friends to compete for high scores, consider integrating your leaderboard with Facebook. If your game features a customizable avatar, players love to show off their sense of style online.

Make it easy for players to share their experiences with your game on social media. Integrating social media platforms into your mobile game lets you take advantage of the social networks that players already have — so if they want to share your game with their feed, it will be that much easier.

Personalized Push Notifications

Push notifications can keep a player engaged. Creating top-tier push notifications is its own challenge, but push notifications that are unique, personalized, and regular can really boost levels of player engagement and encourage players who are falling away from your game to return. When designing your push notifications, just remember that spamming a player’s phone is not going to endear them to you, and notifications that are too infrequent may be confusing.

Community Features and Voice Chat

Players come into the game with their own networks, but it’s also possible for your players to build a sense of community within your game. You can create and manage in-game communities in many ways, and these communities can bolster engagement and encourage players to build social networks around your game, which definitely draws in long-term players.

Previously, other community-focused features like voice chat seemed out-of-place in the more anonymous and slower-paced world of mobile games. Now, however, fast-paced and team-oriented shooters like “Fortnite” can be played on your iPhone. Services like Agora provide SDKs so you can integrate voice and video communications into your game, and Agora’s quick start guide can help you if you need some assistance getting started. If you want to make it easier for people to chat with their friends or organize plans in real-time, voice chat is a feature worth integrating.

Smooth Onboarding

A tutorial that’s engaging and straightforward can help make sure players start interested and stay interested. Ideally, players will be slowly introduced to your game, only hitting more complicated features after they have a good sense of what your game is like. A number of strategies and philosophies exist for how to handle onboarding, but having some sort of game-plan is essential in making sure you don’t lose users when they’re just beginning to play your game.

None of these features guarantee success, but each of them can contribute to a game that feels complete and worth sticking around for. The difference between a good game and a bad one probably isn’t going to be Facebook integration or an in-game community, but players recognize effort. And any player will appreciate a dev that took the time to integrate these features.
