Mobile Gaming Is For The Casual User

While a lot of recent attempts at offering mobile gaming solutions have focused on the hard core gamer, who wants a “mobile” version of the console they have at home, it turns out that one game publisher claims to have seen a lot more success in “casual gamers.” This isn’t really all that surprising. While big game titles get all the press, the most popular games still seem to be simple solitaire type games that people play to fill up idle “casual” time, rather than the hard core gamers that get all the press. Considering that mobile game users are likely to be using the game to fill up idle time anyway, it seems reasonable that casual games would be a bigger hit on mobile phones as well.
