Within the past year and a half, mobile has skyrocketed to the top of leader-board as the most important digital platform for games. Moreover, as recently predicted by Deloitte, mobile games are projected to generate $35 billion in revenue by the end of 2016! Wow. That’s a lot of dough.

Why is this happening? A big reason is due to the fact that there is quite a low barrier to entry in the mobile games market. While a PC-based game can cost millions of dollars to produce and many years to develop, mobile games can be created in just a few hours. However, this “easy-access” is a blessing and a curse. Currently, the amount of mobile games is simply mushrooming and not predicted to slow down any time soon. Take for example the rate at which new games are launched daily- about 500 new gaming apps are released per day on a single platform.
