Basic Information

Terminology

Mobile video games, beyond being video games that just happen to be available for mobile devices, are a type of game build with several design choices in mind.

Many mobile video games aren't made to be played continuously; they will often have a resource-gathering mechanic that is time-dependant. This often means that gameplay is divided into many slots, often only consisting of a few minutes.
