Here’s a list of top 5 mobile games of 2019
As the year comes to an end, we take a look at some of the top mobile games of 2019. According to reports based on mobile market data, Free Fire was the most downloaded game of 2019. That apart, it has been the year of battle royale games like Free Fire and Call of Duty: Mobile being available in your smartphones.
“This was the year for online gaming as it saw an accelerated growth with large audience participation. The exponential rise in online gaming was all because of smartphone adoption since smartphone users reached an all-time high of 3.3 billion worldwide,” said John Dong, Director, Tenda, a leading provider of networking devices, in a conversation with a leading media organisation.
Other top downloaded games of the year include Fun Race 3D and Subway Surfers, which has also become the most downloaded game of the decade.
One of the most popular games that youngsters across the world downloaded was PUBG Mobile. Tencent’s game has become the world’s top-grossing smartphone game, dethroning Arena of Valor. According to reports, its revenue spiked 652 per cent year-on-year, grossing $496 million for the period. The company also launched a lighter version PUBG Mobile Lite, which is the toned-down version of the original that hit the Indian market in July this year. The lite version features a smaller map made for 60 players, which means faster-paced games that last 10 minutes while still keeping the traditional PUBG style of play.
