Five Mobile Games from Asia You’ll Love
Mobile games are exploding worldwide, as more and more gamers get hooked on playing the growing number of games available mobile device. The ease of distribution also means that more indie developers and more developers from around the world are sharing their games globally. It should come as no surprise, however, that Asia tops the list when it comes to producing some of the most addictive games on these platforms. Think Flappy Bird: a game the creator had to pull due to its insatiable popularity. Asia has been wooing gamers with superior game design, great graphics, and more since the birth of console games. Here are five games from Asian developers you’re going to get hooked on:
