Mobile Games Market Facts
A recent poll of over ten thousand app developers has revealed a bunch of new facts about where the current mobile gaming market stands. Not surprisingly, many of the facts have revealed how difficult it can be to make money from a mobile game, due to the increasing competition.
One of the studies showed that 33% of all app developers make mobile games, but more than 57% of those games make less than $500 a month. But even though income is down, the overall app store revenues are dominated by mobile gaming (over 80% of app store revenues are attributed to the games category).
So how can developers find success in a flooded market? According to the poll, game developers say that experience is the most important factor for success - the more games a developer has shipped, the more likely they are to get a decent income out of the industry.
