iPhone games take longer to develop

If the development time for iPhone mobile games is any indication, the entire industry may be shifting to a longer cycle. According to Game Developer Research, a significant percentage of developers reported spending 4-6 months bringing a game to market instead of the 1-3 month cycle which had been more common previously for the iPhone.

The types of games being worked on for iPhones may also help to predict what will be popular in the overall mobile game industry.

The Game Developer Research Survey noted that developers are working on the following game types:

  • Puzzle and word games: 53%
  • Strategy games: 15%
  • Adventure games with story lines: 21%
