This article is the continuation of our previous topic in Mobile Game Testing. In this article, we are going to discuss the State of Mobile Gaming with the key aspects of mobile game performance evaluation.
To understand more about the mobile gaming performance, let us take a look at some interesting numbers to relate.
The above numbers give us a clear picture of the diversity of mobile games and the performance of any mobile game is closely related to its user experience. This makes us think more about the performance factor so that the players don’t get disappointed.
Striking graphics, rich media, animations and their effects makes the mobile game attractive, but if the performance of the mobile lags, then they are pretty much useless.
In the gameplay, gamers expect consistent progress and should experience a personalized touch of the game, and nothing should slow down their gaming experience.
This explains the importance of performance evaluation of every mobile game.
There is the wide range of methods and tactics to test the performance of a mobile game. Naturally, this leaves us with the option of using real devices (phone, tablet) and preferably different versions of those.
It’s not overstating to initiate performance tests in the early phase of mobile game development. The sooner we spot the performance bottlenecks; the better the game will be. Before the game gets published in Google Play or App Store, games should have run through different types of performance tests on all possible device configurations.
For example, the most common performance test done for mobile games is the general stress test to determine the responsiveness and stability of the game. The game should have the consistent performance for certain load or user interaction pattern. Below discussed are the mobile game performance testing checklist which should be considered before publishing a game.
That’s pretty much about the performance factors of Mobile Game Testing.
