Video games sure have come a long way since they first hit it big in the 80s. Back then, it seemed that games were only created with children or teenagers in mind. However, today, games are created for people of all ages, as it appears that adults enjoy video games just as much as their children do.
In 2022, the video game industry is bigger than ever, and it is only expected to grow bigger in the coming future. With the advancements made in programming and computer technology, better and better games are coming out, and a relatively new market for video games, is the mobile gaming market.
Many people might be shocked to learn that mobile games have seen a massive increase in popularity. Gone are the day of Tetris, Snake, Pac-Man and similarly simplistic games on the phone. Today, mobile games are just as complex and detailed as some console / PC games.
One of the biggest factors in the rise of the mobile gaming industry, apart from the development of technologies, is the popularization of the iGaming market. iGaming, or online gambling, is a hugely popular industry in the world today, growing ever more popular in 2022. Some of the most popular mobile games today are gambling games, such as poker, slots, etc.
And speaking of the most popular mobile games, let us look at a few mobile games which were released in 2022, or are slated to be released later this year.
As we said, online gambling is rising rapidly in the world today, with more and more online casinos opening their doors to the public. Among these games, the most popular ones tend to online slots. Much like their brick-and-mortar counterparts, online slots are games of chance, largely relying on luck over skill.
The vast majority of slots are played by pressing a button and waiting for the right result. Often, however, online slots will spice things up, by adding various mini-games, or extra features, making the game a whole lot more interesting.
Some of the best online casinos today, found here, also feature several other games, most notably poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, etc. Next to slots, or perhaps even more popular, is poker, the most notable gambling game in the world.
Poker is widely recognized around the world, with various variations of the game being played in countries all over the globe. Among them, the most popular today is Texas hold ‘em, which originates in the United States.
DC Heroes and Villains
But it isn’t just gambling games that make it to the top. One of the biggest genres in mobile gaming today is three-match puzzlers. Those of you, who have heard of Candy Crush, will be familiar with this genre.
In 2022, one of the most anticipated games, is the DC Heroes & Villains puzzle game, which combines the mechanics of the three-match puzzler, with the excitement, color, and action of superheroes.
Featuring all the most iconic heroes and villains that the DC universe has to offer, DC Heroes & Villains is already available on the Apple App store. Player can take control of heroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc. and face off against the villainous Joker, Lex Luthor, and even Darkseid.
By far, one of the most popular genres in gaming (mobile and in general) is the RPG genre, and among all the RPG games popular today, few reach the level of success and fame as Diablo.
It shouldn’t shock anyone then, to learn that in 2022, Blizzard Entertainment, is planning to release Diablo Immortal, a free-to-play, multiplayer RPG, incorporating the mechanics, lore, and feel of the original three Diablo games.
The game is slated to be released on June 2, 2022, only a week from now, and pre-releases have been met with generally positive reviews. Old-school fans of Diablo seem to be quite excited for the games release, but what is more surprising is that the game has drawn in a huge number of new fans, all of which seem to have had a positive reaction to pre-releases, trailers, and gameplay teasers of the game.
