Mobile games have made a niche for themselves in the gaming world. With higher and higher sales numbers, a lot of developers and publishers are pushing familiar titles to Google Play and the Apple store.
Classic games are making a huge comeback in this new mobile age. Although playing Final Fantasy Tactics: War Of The Lions with a controller in front of an old CRT TV may feel ideal, there is something cool about playing this classic on your phone. Betway88 mobile slots app is another great game you can check out on the mobile app stores.
Here are a few ideas we drummed up that might make the mobile gaming experience a bit better for everyone.
1. No paid bonuses or microtransactions
People get addicted to mobile games simply because they’re “free to play” and convenient.
Mobile games might not have the same quality as PC or console games but they’re popularity is increasing with some estimates putting their market share at 47% of the total gaming market.
So how do “free to play” games make money? They do this by microtransactions, tiny pop-up that ask gamers to pay extra dollars for more content, may it be bonuses, customizations, what have you. These pop ups or requests are super frustrating to gamers, can cost a lot of money in the long run and really ruin the free to play experience.
2. No duplicate characters
Gamers hate running into a million other characters who look just like them with the same skin or model. In a space where it is competitive play (PVP), like Fortnite or PUBG, then duplicate characters should be banned.
At least World of Warcraft has all the armor to hide under, so players get some individuality.
3. Setting a spending limit
In Belgium, loot boxes which are exchanged for currency are now illegal. The Belgian Gaming Commission banned looting in three games: FIFA 18, Overwatch and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The industry should be more cautious about setting spending limits in games. Microtransactions should be set to a budget, and no one should go broke playing FIFA. If the gaming industry wants to do right by it’s players, it should should start by avoiding predatory transactions.
4. A reset function
When playing an RPG like Final Fantasy Tactics, the game revolves around character building. A neat feature in tactics allows you to change your character’s job and improve their skills as the game progresses. By the end of the game, you could have a knight whose mastered dark magic, or a Time wizard who also has healing spells. It’d be great if more mobile games and RPG’s in general allowed you to jumble or even reset your skills every level, so that you could better master the new challenges of the game.
