Discussion of Facebook Mobile’s HTML5 gaming platform
There’s an interesting article on GameZebo talking about the launch of Facebook’s Mobile gaming platform – it doesn’t have a lot of positive things to say right now (which I think is fair) – but hopefully good things will come in the future.
A choice quote:
Playing the first wave of Facebook mobile games feels like stepping back in time. Right now the platform is full of text and menu heavy RPGs, poker games, and word games. The kind of stuff that was popular when games first came to Facebook. Even FarmVille is there. But amongst the nine games that are currently available none of them are particularly engaging or striking. It’s an inauspicious beginning to what could eventually be a very important new development.
