What is mobile game development?

Mobile game development refers to the design and development of games for the mobile platform. The overall process of development goes through multiple stages, from pre-production to final release. It is also an endeavor in which personnel from numerous disciplines come together to create a single output.

You might do mobile game development for iOS, Android, or cross-platform.

1. iOS Game Development

iOS game development refers to developing games for the iOS operating system, the OS that runs on Apple’s iPhones (formerly on iPads as well). Once created, iOS developers release the game on the App Store. The mobile game app developers also have to adhere to specific guidelines from Apple and make the game compatible across multiple versions of iPhones.

2. Android Game Development

Android game development is the creation of games for the Android operating system; an OS created and maintained by Google and the open-source development community. Android is the most used OS in the world and powers smartphones from numerous top manufacturers. The games are usually released in the Google Playstore, but other third-party stores are also available.

3. Cross-Platform Mobile Game Development

Devices that run on the iOS and Android OSes have a lot of similarities, especially in input schemes. This makes many games on one platform work on the other, with just a few platform-specific changes.

Cross-platform mobile game development makes games run on multiple platforms, namely Android and iOS. For developing such games, the developers use top game engines such as Unity, Unreal, and Cocos Creators, which support deployment to multiple platforms at the same time.

What Are the Best Tools Used for Mobile Game Development?

Games are conquering the entertainment industry as they are becoming popular with people of all ages compared to television shows, movies, videos, and many more. In this technological age, people use mobile phones to purchase necessities and consider them the best forms of enjoyment. Many gaming apps dominate the gaming market with the help of mobile game development. Hence, the mobile gaming industry is trending and evolving continuously. Do you know what tools are used by developers in developing mobile games? Juego Studios has top-notch mobile game development tools with a team well-versed in their usage. Here are some of the best tools for developing mobile games:-


As per the statistics, around 60-70% of mobile games are developed using Unity. There are various factors for it to be the top choice for game developers:

  • It creates excellent gameplay sequences & cinematic experiences with its 2D & 3D design tools and is widely preferred by developers, artists, and designers.
  • It is a cross-platform tool, one of the top mobile game development engines that supports most platforms such as Tizen, iOS, Windows Phone, Android, & many more.
  • It delivers the highest quality gaming experience with quality audio and visual effects.

Along with the tools mentioned above for mobile game development, many more tools come into the picture, and Juego Studios is technically well-versed in handling those tools.

How Long Does it Take to Make a Mobile Game?

Are you in the process of building a mobile game? Do you find it challenging to develop it? Have you ever wondered how long it might take to make a mobile game? Do you think it is an easy or a tedious task? These questions are tricky to figure out, so let’s understand the complete mobile game development process one by one. Juego Studios, the top mobile game development company with its capable team, is skillful enough to build a mobile game for its clients, meeting their specifications and deadlines. Shall we get into a detailed picture of this process? Let’sdove into it! 

Various factors decide and contribute to making the mobile game. For example:- a complex game will take longer than a simple game. In this way, many such steps become the deciding factor, and these are the following:-

Game Project Assets:-

The game asset creation process is more straightforward for mobile games than for PC games. This factor will be crucial depending on whether the game is built for PC or mobile. However, the assets like animation, characters, VFX, game environment, 2D/3D models, and many such elements take time to design, even in mobile games, depending on the complexity involved in the design & detail process.

Team Size:-

One must be wise in selecting an appropriate number ofemployesin the team with expertizein the game project to be worked on. For example, your game project might take more time if there are unskilled developers to execute the game idea. So, to meet your expectations, the game developers must be skilled in understanding and implementing the game idea as per the deadline. Of course, the number of employesplays a keen role, so too many or a few should not be the target. Instead, the team size should be sufficient to handle the game project.

Cost Incurred in developing a Mobile Game:-

The mobile game development cost continuously varies with the type of game you want to develop. It depends on what game you want to build, and prices are equally proportional. Some games are affordable, and a few are expensive to create. AAA & Hard-Core games are costly compared to all mobile games. Next to these are Mid-Core games, where the costs are attached to the game project. Casual games are less-priced compared to the categories mentioned above. Most cheap or affordable games to develop are Hyper-Casual games and Test Prototypes/Playable Demos.


Various types of games are available, and every game has a specific time for completion. Gameplay in these games has a critical role and is one of the main deciding factors for game completion. A game will take a long time to build when more levels and extra features are incorporated. Conversely, one can cut short the time if the game has fewer levels. Extended and short play sessions also affect the time to build a mobile game. Hence gameplay differs for every game.

Mobile Game Types:- 

Some mobile games take more than 1 to 2 years, some take less than a year, and some take only a few months to create. However, games like ultra-casual or hyper-casual, casino-based, 2D, and puzzle games take less time, from a few weeks to about three months. It is possible due to the availability of the tools.

3D action, adventurous-based, sports, and strategy-based games take about ten to eighteen months due to the complexity of animation, script, genres, etc.

Role-playing games (RPGs), massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG), battle royale games, and Frames per second (FPS) games take more than two years to build due to the enormous graphic work, development work, planning, marketing, and many more features.  

The above factors are essential in determining the time to build a mobile game. Before you start with the process, always have proper planning. Let us know your queries, and get excellent solutions from Juego Studios, offering the best mobile game development services.

How much does it cost for Mobile Game Development?

The gaming industry market is tremendously rising, and mobile games contribute significantly. This sudden increase is because everyone loves to possess smartphones. Therefore, the upsurge in smartphone sales is directly proportional to the mobile gaming market. So, do you have a fabulous idea to make a mobile game? If you have, that sounds great!! But wait, are you worried about the mobile game development costs? Are you finding it challenging? Do you know how much it costs for mobile game development? What are the factors that influence the cost? Let’s have a look at those factors:-

Complexity involved in the Game:-

The simpler the game, the lesser the price; the more complex the game, the higher the price. Simple games with basic controls & 2D graphics will not cost much as it will not take more than a few days or weeks for game developers to develop them. Such small games will not exceed a specific budget that is manageable. Once you start including in the small games more levels, an attractive 2D or 3D interface, and more options for players, then cost will automatically increase as now additional effort & time are needed for a developer to make it.

Once the complexity increases with various levels to explore, more characters, sound, visual effects, complex stories, & many more such – the cost will further increase. As a result, 3D mobile games are costlier than 2D mobile games. Some bigger games incorporate a monetization system and rich content with an engaging storyline; these games’ budgets might exceed $ 150,000.

Game Testing:-

The bigger or larger the game, the more testing it requires. The more hours testers work for you, the higher your paycheck will be. But testing is essential for any game, so one cannot cut or ignore this development element. Gamers cannot tolerate any bugs in the game. They will not like the game if it is slow. Players love it if the game offers a rich user experience and runs smoothly without issues. The more game testing, the higher your game development cost will be. So always allocate some amount for testing.

Game Marketing:-

Innovative marketing is always required for the game, even if it is engaging and interesting. What are the different ways you plan to advertise your game indeed affects your budget. You might think you developed a fantastic game, but it’s not over. The game will not conquer the market at one go the moment you launch it. So marketing efforts are needed to make your game viral. To increase the visibility & rankings in the App Store Optimization (APO), you need a budget to market your game correctly. If you are looking for a development partner, get in touch with Juego Studios, which offers the best mobile game development services.

So the above are some factors that contribute to your mobile game development cost. Build a game based on these criteria as they affect the cost process. Of course, you always have the option to pick a mobile game development company to build your game idea. Juego Studios, the top game development company, offers excellent quality services in this area. For more questions, you can reach out to us!

Do Mobile Games Make Money?

The short answer is yes; the best mobile game developers make a lot of money. Mobile games take more than 50% share of the entire gaming industry. The gaming industry’s revenue stands around billions, and it has been a couple of years since mobile gaming took over console and PC gaming combined.

Experts within the industry predict that by 2027, the mobile gaming market volume will become $221 billion.

There are several reasons for such a huge boom. The proliferation of smartphones is one of the chief reasons. In the past decade, smartphones have become a daily usage item for most of the world’s population. This has opened up gaming possibilities to audiences that were not previously there.

Availability of the internet is a second reason. Like smartphones, the internet has also become part of the daily lives of a large population.

You might wonder, how do mobile game app developers make money?

Well, below are some of the different monetization methods that are common in the gaming industry:

Upfront Payment

Upfront payment is a monetization method that is similar to traditional game monetization. Under this method, the user makes a payment upfront and gets access to the entire game. One-time purchase and the game is all theirs.

Most games on mobile that have this monetization method belong to specific genres, such as RPGs, which are not casual experiences but demand the players to invest their time and resources into the games.

Sometimes, the game’s first level will be unclocked and available for free. The player can try out the level and make a one-time purchase within the game that unlocks all the other levels.


The ad-based mobile game monetization works by showing advertisements within the game. The best mobile game developers will strategically place these ads to maximize the ad’s exposure to the target users.

Based on the game, the developers might use different formats of ads. Each ad format has its benefits and drawbacks.

The most common formats include video ads, banner ads, interstitial ads, and reward ads. Video ads, as the name specifies, are ads that run as a video in the game. Banner ads are graphic ads that are similar to web display ads. Meanwhile, interstitial ads are displayed during key transitions within the game. Finally, reward ads are ads that reward the user in return for engaging with the ad.

In-App Purchases

Nonetheless, IAPs are common in the industry these days. They bring in the most revenue within the gaming industry.

In-App Purchases (IAPs) are purchases that the players make within a game’s marketplace. Usually, these are small purchases to enhance the gaming experience and are not necessary for the player’s in-game progress.

IAPs fall into two broad categories: consumables and non-consumables.

Consumables are items that get exhausted after consumption. For example, consider potions and spells that the player can only use an as small amount as they have. If these are finished, the player has to buy more or acquire them through other means.

Non-consumables, on the other hand, are items that do not get exhausted. For example, consider weapons such as swords and cosmetic items such as skins, which players can use for as long as they are playing the game.


Subscriptions are recurring expenses that users must pay periodically in return for in-game perks.

The player periodically receives perks like new weapons, skins, ammo, in-game coins, etc. Depending on the game, the subscription payment might be weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.

Subscriptions are a great way to monetize mobile games because of the most straightforward reason that it generates consistent revenue.

Hybrid Method

The hybrid method is not a single method. But it is instead an approach where developers combine more than one monetization strategy in the same game.

The most common example of this is combining IAPs with in-game ads. In-game ads help monetize the players who do not pay. Meanwhile, IAPs help monetize the players that are willing to pay. So, developers get the best of both worlds.

What does a mobile game development agency team look like?

Solo developers or a team can do mobile game development. However, solo development has challenges, such as the lack of specialization that can lead to lower quality. Hence, most of the time, people opt to go for development with a complete team. Some even hire a mobile game development company to do the same.

Such a mobile game development team usually has the following roles:

1. Producer

The producer is the person who is responsible for overseeing the entire production. The person must ensure the whole development is headed in the right direction. Management of the resources to get the correct output is also part of their role in the development process.

2. Game Developer

Game developers must write code for the game and develop the different features. Most of the time, these people use commercial game engines such as Unity and Unreal to do their development. They are also usually adept at specific programming languages. mobile game app developers maintain the code base and do dev testing to identify and remove bugs.

3. Game Designer

The game designer is one of the chief architects of the game and is responsible for devising the core mechanics of the game. The designers create the game’s levels, in-game economy, progression system, etc., and document them in the game design document (GDD). The team also ensures the game is balanced to ensure there is no bad gameplay experience.

4. UI Designers

In a game app development company, the UI designers create the game’s different interfaces and screens, keeping the user experience in mind. Other factors are also considered, such as the game’s genre and theme, platform guidelines, and basic UI principles.

5. Artists

Artists are the team members who create the visuals for the game – such as the characters, environments, props, etc. There are multiple types of game artists, each with a unique role in the art production pipeline. If you hire a mobile game development company, you might have access to all of them.

a. Concept Artists

Concept artists are idea creators. This set of artists creates the first look for the different artwork used in the game and narrows down the preliminary look for the game. The artwork and assets that the rest of the art team creates will be based on the sketches that the concept artists develop.

b. 2D Artists

If the game is 2D, then the 2D artists create the sprites for the characters and the environments in the game. The team uses drawing and illustration as their preliminary tools to make the primary

artwork. Adding color and other details to the 2D sprite are also part of the team’s role. In addition, 2D artists might be experts in different art styles per game.

c. 3D artists

If the game is in 3D, then there will be multiple 3D artists involved, such as modelers, texturing artists, rigging artists, and lighting artists.

The modelers create 3D models for the characters, environments, and props. The texturing artists meanwhile add textures such as surface features, skin, fur, etc., to these models. Next, the rigging artists add the skeletal rigs that aid in creating movements for the models. Finally, the lighting artists set up different lights based on the scene’s requirements.

d. Animators

Animators add movement to the 2D/3D assets in the game. For instance, for the characters in the game, the animators give gestures and facial expressions based on the scene’s mood to show the character’s emotion at the moment. Animators are hence vital for making games immersive and portraying a sense of realism.

6. Quality testers

Quality testers are at mobile game development companies are responsible for testing the output that all the other team members create to ensure they are up to the expected quality standards. Testers also ensure that all the game elements are functioning correctly, without bugs and errors, and are as per the documented requirements. The quality analysis team may conduct multiple types of testing, each with its specific role in the testing process.

What are the different genres of mobile games?

There are numerous genres of mobile games. Each of these genres has its own target audience, genre conventions, and audience expectations.

Some of these genres are more common on mobile than on other platforms. Others are less common on mobile but are becoming more popular with time:


Casual games are games with simple mechanics and often target a wide demographic. These games are easier to play and are the type of games that people can pick up while they get a short break, as they are geared towards shorter gaming sessions.


The type of games that have even simpler mechanics than casual games. Hyper-casual games are usually monetized by using cross-promotional ads.


Games that have action as the core mechanics. These are similar to action movies as the action takes center stage. Fighting games and shooter games come under this category.


The genre of games where the player takes on the role of a character in a story. These types of games often involve puzzle mechanics.


Players jump up and down platforms, overcome obstacles, and defeat enemies. This genre of games can be in 2D or 3D. However, most of the time, the game is in 2D.


RPG games (also called Role Playing Games) are games where the player takes on a particular role. There is often a game world, usually a fantasy, historical, or sci-fi setting, and a vast storyline filled with quests.

Word Games

Word games are games that demand the player to use their language proficiency. For example, games such as crosswords, letter arrangement games, etc., come under this category.

Battle Royale

Battle Royales are multi-player games where the player has to battle in a designated battle area and be the last one standing. Batlle Royales can be team-based or individual based. The gameplay also includes collecting resources to strengthen oneself and staying inside a shrinking game area.


MOBAs (Massive Online Battle Arenas) are games that pin two teams, each with multiple players, against each other. Each player will control one character, and each character will have their abilities. These games require players to collaborate and play strategically to beat the other team.

Digital Card

Digital card games emulate real-world card games. The players must build an entire deck from a massive list of cards. The player must also strategize and carefully plan their moves to beat opponents.


Board games are played on a board. These games can be completely new or virtual versions of existing real-world games.


As the name implies, strategy games are the genre of games that put strategy as the main mechanic. The player has to build complicated strategies to overcome in-game challenges consciously. Directly taking on challenges head-on is not going to work.


Racing games are virtual versions of racing. The game involves different types of racing and can be in 2D or 3D and various vehicles. Unlockable vehicles and race tracks are all hallmarks of these games.

What are the programming languages used for mobile game app development?

Several languages are widely used for mobile game development. Below are a few of the top ones:


Kotlin is a modern programming language that Google recommends for android game development. The language powers many android games that are available on the market.

One benefit of Kotlin is that it interoperates with Java. Because of this, developers do not have to migrate all the code.

The language is also known for resulting in fewer crashes comparatively.


Java is a cross-platform programming language. It runs on multiple platforms with ease.

Java is the language used to develop many popular games in the market. These games include Minecraft, Asphalt 6, and Runescape.

This is because of the programming language’s key strengths, which include but is not limited to being good at handling the server side of the code.


C++ is a low-level language that is extremely powerful and complex to learn. The language is built on top of the C language. In addition, it is a directly complied language and hence guarantees better performance.

The language is the chosen development language for game engines such as Unreal Engine and CryEngine. Both game engines are renowned in the industry for being good at creating games with high-fidelity graphics.

The wide range of features that the engine has includes memory management, flexibility, granular control, and easier interaction with a device’s hardware resources.


C# is a high-level language that is simple to understand. It is also an object-oriented language that is relatively easy to learn and hence suggested to beginners of game development.

One benefit of C# is that it abstracts many tasks. Because of this, the developers do not have to invest a lot of time in certain elements.

The primary reason why C# is widely used in the gaming industry is that it is the primary game development language in Unity, the game engine from Unity technologies. Unity is one of the most used game engines on the planet and supports deployment to 20+ platforms, including iOS and android.


Python is a beginner-friendly programming language. It has an easy-to-use syntax and is relatively easy to debug.

Because of its features, many top mobile game development companies use the language for prototyping. Also, Godot, a famed game engine, has its programming language called GD Script, based on Python.


In game development, JavaScript is used with the HTML5 canvas element to make games. It is also a front-end language and an interpreted scripting language.

JavaScript has the drawback of being slower in performance compared to many other languages. Be that it may, multiple game engines support this language, including Pixi.JS, Phaser, and three. JS.


Swift is a compiled programming language. Within the gaming industry, it is used for iOS game development.

Apple developed the programming language alongside the open-source community. The language was first released in 2014 and has been top ever since.
