Since the dawn of mobile devices the human mind has tried again and again to implement games on cellular phones as a way to play on the go without having to carry your gameboy
the mobile game “Snake” (which released in 1997)consisted of chasing a dot on your Nokia. Every time you ate it the snake grew and it became harder for you to maneuver in the screen. If you managed to interlope the snake it was an automatic disqualification. Since these phones were bricks who used keypad the controls were easy to play with.
UP – 2
DOWN – 8
LEFT – 4
RIGHT – 6
“Space Invaders” came on 2001 and then you had another option besides Snake.
This game consisted of moving the space ship up and down in the screen to avoid contact from the asteroids or enemy ships. By the time this game was introduced the controllers moved from being number keys to arrows and by pressing on them you was able to shoot and move, shoot and move.
“Bejewelled” was the the pivoting move that led to the creation of candy crush. Yeah, you heard it Candy Crush this huge game on the AppStore that everyone played even your own granny. The game consisted of matching three or more jewels in order to clear the level. The levels were getting harder and harder. Since this was the original it did not had add – ons on to help you during the level.
