What do i really search for in a game?

Hi guys.

Trying to find our way in game developing for pocket devices.
With my partner we created a team and developed our first title some months ago. We wanted to be inovative, fresh and give most space to gameplay. We ended with a game that drived us crazy.
With the hope it would reach hardcore gamers and after some feedback and mods, we published it.
Most of the press loved it but the game hasn`t found its way yet.

This is the best place to get opinions from serious gamers.

If you had 10 points for your ideal pocket game, how would you share 'em ?

Post examples and prefered gaming category if you want.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year !

don't have to be so innovative. Well FYC, in East Asia, there's an online game called SEAL Online which is (in my opinion) very good.

It's not using reality graphic for it's "levelling quest and adventure" gameplay, they using cartoon graphic instead. It makes the game more friendly and won't make people boring. Beside, the less reality, I think the less size and cost.

Trust me it will be good.

Gameplay has to be priority IMO. I don't mind the cost if it is a game that I want and seems worth the price. (Bought Real Racing 2 for 5.99.)

I truly hate, with a passion IAP. Prefer to pay extra initially and then not have any IAP.

At the moment I am enjoying games like Lego Harry Potter, Infinity Blade, Rage HD, Sonic 4, Real Racing 1&2,Dead Rising and lots of different Tower Defence games that I keep switching between.

Hope everyone has a great time over Christmas and the New Year period.
Hope Santa brings everything for everyone lol
