Mobile game development is a lengthy process that takes time, effort, innovation and no short amount of creativity. Our App Boxer experts clarify the most significant development features step by step:
Choose a game idea: The game idea is the foundation and should be concrete to boost your chances of your app’s success post launch.
Create an attractive game concept: Create a storyline that gives its end users a purpose to play, keep them engaged and hooked for hours.
Select a mobile app platform: Consider the trends in the mobile game development world. Ask yourself whether you want to develop your games for multiple platforms, or for Android or iOS only.
Prepare a game design document (GDD): This document contains an in-depth description of all of your game elements, including the game mechanics, technologies and tools used for future development.
Make the game structure: Structure can heavily impact sales, therefore it requires a great attention to detail. Assess the graphics, environment, texture and if you desire your game to be 2D or 3D.
Plan for wireframing: Wireframing provides a clear view of the feel and functionality of your mobile game application. Consider a visual guide/prototype to assist you.
Write code: Choosing suitable programming language and flawless code ensures the game is being developed as per your expectations.
Test your game: Test each module of your mobile game to prevent additional costs from incurring.
Select the right monetisation strategy: Obtain maximum ROI by planning your monetisation strategy beforehand. The three most common strategies include in-app advertisement, in-app purchases, and subscription/membership plans.
Release the game app: Read the guidelines of the platform that you want to launch your mobile game on. If your game is in compliance, hit the launch button.
Take care of post-release support and maintenance: Releasing the app isn’t the last step of mobile game development. You will need to provide regular maintenance and support services to ensure your game works flawlessly every time.
This depends on the scope of your mobile game development project. You will have to factor in the costs of a game development team (with rights), device and software costs, GDD per hours costs, and additional labour costs.

Costs for a game development agency to build a mobile game for either can range from $ 15,000 for simple mini-games to $ 350,000 for multi-player games. Prices also depend on the features you wish to integrate, including payment systems and administrative functions, and whether you want your game to function in 2D or 3D. Features are 20% more expensive for iOS than Android.
Pre development costs
For a game development process to be successful and well structured, a game development agency creates a strategy in the form of a GDD document that includes game details. The GDD document is the basis of the whole project.

Depending on the size, scope and platform of your game development project, the process may take anywhere from a month to a few years. Most modern console or PC games can take from three to five years, whereas mobile game development is often a few months. Length of development is influenced by a variety of factors, including how engaging the genre and storyline of the game, the scale, considering the development platform, and number of assets.
At App Boxer, we offer mobile game development services for the following platforms- Android (Google Play) and iOS (Apple). We rely on cross platform mobile game development using the Unity game engine.
While a game designer and a game developer (game programmer) are both active roles in game development, their responsibilities vary. A game designer will focus on building the creative vision of the game, the game flows and how end users enjoy the game.
A game developer, however, looks into the technical methods of implementing the ideas of the signers, and using code to bring these design elements to life.
At App Boxer, quality programming and experience are our ethos. As your game development agency we provide a holistic approach to user experience, and ensuring your creative vision and story comes to life. Whether it is direct to gamers or to streamline your business objects, our mobile game development services are proven to capture the attention of your user.
