A gaming app is one of the best breeding grounds for all the youngsters who find solace in their new friend – ‘Technology’.
Why are there so many games being developed? Why people are getting addicted to games and what adversities does this bring in one’s life?
Well, read on to get to the answers of the above-mentioned questions.

Are Games turning our Brains?
Games that arrest the attention of the audiences plays a major role in getting to the core of the matter. Playing quality games targets the reward system of the brain injecting a chunk of dopamine increasing the happy hormones in our body. Once the brain registers the fact that the game is capable enough to insulate the dopamine level, it sends a signal to the body to do the activity that once set the dopamine to high levels. If you refrain from playing the game, your dopamine levels could drop down resulting in depression, isolation, restlessness and mood swings – that which negates the productivity of the person. It creates an air of euphoria.
One of the main reasons that encourage people to play games is that it is a great stimulator as well as stress reliever. People are constantly into the gaming mode to get out the stress levels that when intervened with the progress might affect a person’s mental alertness. ‘It instantly lifts my mood and proves to be a great tool to kill time’ – says one of the youngsters pursuing computer engineering.
There are games that affect the well-being of our brains and hence games should not be completely stricken out from one’s life. Just grab your mobile phone and get going with your favorite mobile games. It won’t cost you an arm or a leg. All you need to have is the internet connection and the space to download and let the game do the talking.
The challenges of the perfect gaming app:
Life is nothing but an ocean of opportunities, where a human being puts in their blood and sweat to grab the opportunity. People often segregate opportunities into the good and the bad, but in reality, it all depends on what we perceive them to be. One such opportunity that a mobile game developer tries to figure out with some of the games that are never less than optimum. It sometimes hits the right target, but sometimes misses out on certain essential criteria.
Here are the three important criteria that when properly fulfilled can gain the much-awaited response from the audiences:
=> The taste and preference of the audience
=> How well can it be elucidated to the audience
=> To what extent it manages to hold the audience’s attention
=> Apart from this it is the experience that a developer has that clears hie path to creating a game that could get to the nerves.
When it comes to creating an affable mobile game people look forward to getting help from the best iOS game development company and many such game development companies specialized in different mobile operating systems. It has been observed that all the free to play games have almost stomped upon the growth of pay per download games. Everything in excess leads to destruction, so is the case with this technical invention. When it comes to beating stress, games – more specifically mobile games, are one of the bankable tools that I have ever come across. Playing games should be treated just like every other technical instrument – where its use should be restricted to less than optimum.
