To create a great mobile game you need to know what business model you will use.

Then, choose a genre of game that you like and that peoples like. Try to find others already done(all have been done before).

1/ think how to do better (graphic, gameplay, ...)
2/ think how to do different (feature, functionnality, ...)
3/ mix both

Then you will have a futur hit.

It is very diffucult to do. I already create 2 mobile games and developing a third. Then for the fourth I will use this way to do.

I know, how about a game where you are a small bird... you have to tap the screen to make him flap up, so he can avoid the pipes that enter the screen from the right.

The game would have graphics similar to the early Mario games. It'd be a hit!

Technically they're asking you to give them away.

Indeed! Oh all these countless hours I'd need!

Anyway, back to topic: Don't even think that anyone would steal ideas. Ideas itself are pretty worthless. The hardest part is to make any idea into an fun(!) game.

Maybe you could just tell us first, what kind of games you like? It doesn't make much sense that you create a game without passion.
