I am no fan of some mobile games

Post by DestroyerOfDestruction » Sat Nov 30, 2019 5:20 am

I am kinda annoyed by video games that practically want one to keep playing them everytime. These kind of games are theoretically free, but often have incredibly tedious gameplay that can only be sped through actual currency.

I agree, a good number of free-to-play games these days usually have very aggressive and/or manipulative monetization models. The examples on home consoles are bad enough, but its especially prevalent in mobile gaming. I personally just avoid the majority of mobile gaming completely.

I know I'm being opportunistic here, but since you're talking mobile games, these are some I made myself:

Little Shadow: https://www.kongregate.com/games/4Eleme ... s_mobile=1

Touch Blaster: https://www.kongregate.com/games/4Eleme ... s_mobile=1

Vertigo Fish: https://www.kongregate.com/games/4Eleme ... s_mobile=1

These are mobile games DONE RIGHT!

Yeah, I know, technically these are online games, but I programmed touchscreen controls into them and designed them around the touchscreen, so they're mobile. All I need to do to earn money from them is to have people play them. That's all. No micro-transaction bullshit. And I think your view of the game is only counted once by the site anyway, so you'd only need to play it once.

In one hand, they require you to wait days for a process, but in the other they want you to remain there even if you do have things to do. They often require an extremely tedious farming as well.

For the microtransactions, they offer things so useless that one might as well buy another video game or do a better investment.

Yeah, I experienced this problem with a certain Naruto game on Facebook.

Wartune jumps to mind! :x I could never sprout those stupid seeds because by the time I came back to the game they had already died!

Plus there are the games with a moderately big budget that require 4 years to download

Keep in mind that some mobile games were not meant to be mobile (for example those games with a million buttons or that straight up rip a console controller). The best mobile games are the ones whose controles only work on a screen, for example Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Dumb Ways to Die, King of Thieves, Om Nom, Flat Jump, etc.

So, by that criteria, the games I made are good? (links in my first post in this thread)

Emulators for consoles or systems have that problem, and it can be somewhat annoying to control them due to that.
