Calling all mobile gaming players, enthusiasts, and experts! Do you find yourself glued to your smartphones walking down the street, pausing and backtracking, making a sudden left or right, all the while jabbing and` swiping at your screen furiously?

A big technology company wants to understand your love for mobile gaming – why you think mobile gaming is a cool and fun thing to do, and what you like about the wide variety of experiences that isn’t just about the on-screen moment.

Creative Challenge

Tell us what your top favorite mobile games are today. And with your current most favourite mobile game in mind, in a poster with a visual and text, show us what the most compelling thing is about mobile gaming to you.

Choose your favourite mobile game that you play on your smartphone. With that game in mind, tell us what is great about this game, why it is cool and fun, what you like about the wide variety of experiences that encompass on-screen moments and external off-screen adventures.

Here are some aspects of mobile gaming that will help you come up with your idea:

  • Internal game elements: What are the elements within your chosen game that you really like? For example, is there a social element built into the way the game works? Is location-based capability something that’s fun? Is it a cool display of technology?
  • External elements: What other aspects – other than game itself – do you like about your chosen mobile game? Does it allow you to interact with the environment around you? What about the characters that you like? Or do you see it as just a fun way of passing time?

Please answer these three questions in the template provided:

  1. Which favourite mobile game did you pick to base your idea on? How did you first hear about it/discover it?
  2. In your idea, what are the (a) internal game elements and (b) external elements that would compel a non-gamer to start mobile gaming? What do you think are the emotional benefits to playing this game?
  3. Besides this favourite game, what are 4 more of your favourite mobile games?

You can submit as many entries as you would like, but please keep each submission focused on one game.
