+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Competitive online munch-'em-up Slither.io may be flavour of the month on the App Store right now, but it's only the latest in a long history of snakes in mobile gaming.

The first, and still very much the best, is the monochrome beauty we all wrangled in a time before apps - the titular Snake, from Nokia's imaginatively-titled Snake.

Here's why we'd trade an iPhone running Slither.io for a Nokia 3310 with Snake any day of the week.

What mobile games do anime fans have to look forward to next year?

Posted by Brittany Vincent on January 7th, 2016

There have been loads of games released over the past year inspired by classic or newly-released anime series.

Properties like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Bleach also have new tie-in titles due this year, so it's easy to see why gamers who love Japanese animation are so excited about phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

This year we'll hopefully see anime-inspired games released globally rather than just in Japan. There's a huge global audience for Anime-related games, and it's getting bigger every day. Sadly though the spread of these games outside of the East doesn't look like it's going to gain pace.

Square Enix is releasing the company's classic role-playing game Romancing SaGa 2 for smartphones as well as PS Vita, but it hasn't revealed whether it'll be available for global audiences just yet.

What does Nintendo have in store for mobile platforms in 2016?

Posted by Nadia Oxford on January 6th, 2016

2015 over, and so is the mobile games market.

Just kidding. Mobile games are stronger than ever.

Granted, some interesting trends came out of last year - like paid apps gradually finding themselves unable to compete with free-to-play games - but we can expect 2016 to begin the way 2015 ended: With tons of mobile games to choose from on the App Store and Google Play.

2016 will also usher in Nintendo's first stab at mobile game development (outside of some Pokémon apps that are more the work of the affiliated but still somewhat independent Pokémon Company).
