How many hours on an average do you spend playing video games? That’s right, people can spend half of their time playing games or searching for them, especially, on their mobile phones. It can take about 2 to 10 hours for searching and playing. Approximately 61.6% of people play on their smartphones daily. More than half the population is in mobile games. Nowadays, even children and old-aged people are into light games to spend time.

What Makes People Get Addicted to Games

The biggest question is how to design a game app that will make people addicted so that they would ask for more. It all depends on the design of the app itself. Well, partly it is the design and parts is psychology. The human mind is one difficult nut to crack. Thousands of psychologists have been spending their time and money trying to understand that.

The way people get hooked to the game has a specific classification. Some apps grasp the clients based on their competition for the high score or completing the mission. Between 6-15 percent of gamers have game addictions. The world is simply changing.

You must have seen that some games are not difficult to play, nor do they contain a lot of graphics. It is due to the attractive design, great User Interface (UI) and animation that makes it so desirable.

So, Why is Designing so Important?

Before we jump right into the answer, we would like you to know what game app design is. When you plan or draft how the game emerges, that is the design. Additionally, the final look of the product which users see when they download the app is also considered part of the design.

Talking about what is important, people only install the app after looking at the screenshots which show the design. They might uninstall it if they don’t like the design. This is the single most crucial motivation for you – building apps that have an excellent design. Hold up, we have more reasons:

  • Mobile app designing is a completely different field of study and work;
  • Design helps in keeping the players engaged and motivates them to wait for the further extensions;
  • The design takes half the credit for the revenue generated from the app (the other half is for the actual game): the better the designs, the higher will be the pay.

Game App Design Differences

The design of each game is different, but the processor of the smartphone also plays an important role. Did you notice that there are more games on Android Google Play compared to Apple Store and some of them are exclusive to one type of processor?

This is because both of them require different app design development. If you want to design a game app for Android, you need to have slightly different skills compared to Apple.
