iOS family has become a very attractive gaming platform since the first release of the iPhone. iPhone platform both attracts game enthusiasts and game developers for many reasons. There are a lot to mention but to name a few;
- iPhone is mobile: You carry it wherever you go. It doesn’t matter whether you’re resting at home in the evening or you’re waiting your plane to arrive at the airport. Your little baby is in your pocket whenever and wherever you need it.
- iPhone provides a natural user interface: You can use your fingers as if you do in real world. You can swipe, multi-touch, drag, throw, catch and hold things in games. You don’t need a joystick or a complicated control device to interact with the game. The screen is there and you have the control with the touch of your hands.
- iPhone is compact and handy: Phone, music, productivity and entertainment… All in one device. You don’t need a separate device to enjoy your favourite games. And you don’t have to have hours of free time to play a game, even a 5 minutes of spare time while you wait for the metro at a station is sufficient for most of the games to play.
- App Store is a heaven for both iPhone users and developers: There are literally thousands of games in the App Store. Ranging from simple time-killer games to very complicated, rich graphics, multi-user games… You are both able to find your favourite childhood games and also discover many new games with a lot of innovative, surprising ideas and features. And for developers, it’s really a heaven. Imagine your simple, weekend-hack game is being listed with the games of the industry giants such as EA Games, Sega and many others. It was nothing more than a dream a couple of years ago, isn’t it?
