The Most Popular Mobile Game Types Today

Published by The Sun on Thu, 26 Nov 2020

Smartphones blasted into our world a bit more than a decade ago and since then, they have become the very center of our digital lives. Today, smartphones are bringing not only the news but also education, banking, and a world of information to places where this wasn’t possible before them. And, of course, games of all kinds.
Mobile games are incredibly diverse, covering everything from crossword puzzles to shooters and racing. And they reach an incredibly wide - and diverse - audience from kids to the elderly, offering every single one of them the right game to play. As you might expect, not all mobile games are created equal. And the most popular ones are not those you might expect.

Casino games
Casino games would fit into the hyper-casual category but there is something that sets them apart: they can often be played for real money and completely free as well. If you visit the Betway online casino you’ll find a collection of amazing games that will run on computers and smartphones alike. And the choice is yours: you can play games at Betway for fun or make a deposit and add the thrill of a real-money bet to the fun of playing a game.
Casino games are played by a small but significant percentage of smartphone owners around the world. Their popularity has been unbroken for more than a century - and now, they are more accessible and diverse than any time before.

“Core” games

“Core” games are those mobile games that require practice and skill to play. This category includes shooters, racing games, role-playing games, and similar genres that are usually played on computers and consoles. Today, in turn, many of them have found their way to smartphones.
First-person shooters and Battle Royale games have seen their user base explode on mobile in recent years, with the release of titles like Fortnite, Call of Duty, and PUBG, among others. Action games, open-world titles, and simulations are also pretty popular.
Core games are played by almost a fifth of all smartphone gamers around the world.

Casual games
But the category embraced by the vast majority of smartphone owners on the globe is the casual/hyper-casual one.
Casual games are those with a steep learning curve - easy to learn, and often difficult to master. This covers pretty much everything from word games to arcade titles, matching games, and simulations - but it also includes virtual pets and their likes.

Hyper-casual games, in turn, can be played instantly without any prior experience. These include trivia apps and puzzle games, racing games, skill games like Flappy Bird, and endless runners, insanely popular since the release of Subway Surfers in 2012.
Hyper-casual games are the most popular games on mobile today, played by more than a third of all smartphone owners around the world.
