Mobile Game Reviews: Let's Talk MOBA Duals

In this daily blog (and video)-series I take a first impressions look at the best mobile games that I come by. Be sure to share your favorite mobile game with the rest of us in the comments below!

Don't let the name fool ya'; MOBA Duels isn't actually a moba. Instead, the game mixes Clash Royale-like card-based gameplay with heroes (cards) based on typical MOBA classes and skills. 

Chests are unlocked over time (like Clash Royale), and can be bought for premium currency too, which is acquired through completing quests and IAPs. Gold, which is used to upgrade heroes and skills is a scarce resources right from the start, and although the gameplay is rather fun, the game thus feels a bit pay2win. 

My thoughts on MOBA Duals:

      Do heavily-loaded compute shaders affect the performance of the other "normal/render" shaders? or do they use a dedicated core?

      Hello, and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
       
      I am not here asking for someone to do my work for me. I am just looking for a mentor who would not mind answering a few of my questions, and give me a little guidance.
       
      I prefer chatting on discord, so if you are interested in helping me get started, please add me. My username is wize1 @8135

      How the heck would I know if I'd make a good game designer?
       
      (I like me some words, so if you feel like skimming, basic stuff is in bold-italics lol):
       
      Story Time: I've played video games since I was five and my dad forced me to play Ready 2 Rumble with him--it all seemed such a fuss until Afro Thunder burst in and stole my heart. Fast forward to middle school and I started picking out games on my own--mostly RPGs with some fighting and strategy and Mario and blessed Harvest Moon mixed in. Some puzzles. Adventure point-and-clicks? To die for. So I stumble through yada yada life yada yada high school yada yada want to be a writer yada yada college yada yada piddle around with game design yada yada. Got a creative degree that wasn’t games-related. Wrote a few CYOA for an app, published some writing, and kept journals and journals of game design ideas. Studied coding and art on the side. Now I'm considering Grad School at SMU Guildhall. School says my credentials are good, so that’s not my problem.
       
      Here’s my problem:
       
      Dudes, I'm not very skilled at video games.
       
      I played my first MMO ever yesterday with a 2-week-old character and totally sucked at the group play. Like, I got performance anxiety. Bad. Thank God I was a low-level or I would have felt like even more of an arse. Buttons weren't doing what I thought they should; fences were not being jumped over; healing (Lord, I was the healer) was few and far in-between. Um, guys, I couldn't even get the revive button to work. I don't even get test anxiety, but I was having flash backs to high school track and field and they were a bit not good. (*´=∀=) I was the first one to die and everyone ended up waiting on me at the beginning of the level because I thought I was literally just playing with my real-life friend and not two additional strangers--both of whom must have had the patience of saints and the vocabulary of sailors to get through that awful flashpoint. (ノ∀゚*) [Will I regret going into this much detail? Probably. Stick around for lolz].
       
      On one level, being a newb is completely hilarious and inevitable. On another--I just felt deflated. I thought--is is too little, too late? Despite playing games all my life I've never been competitive or cared about the nitty-gritty details of memorizing maps, coming in with gear, chatting with other people on the internet (**shudder**). I'm literally more comfortable giving speeches and talking on the phone with sales people than I am with chatting with fellow players online. Even chat forums are a stretch for me. (Heh).
       
      So, can you be a good game designer while being a mediocre to middling player? How important is it to cater to competitive and multiplayer-based players? Does anybody else get multiplayer anxiety? I’m not a casual player per se--I just enjoy narrative experiences and quick matches (like in fighting games) more than party-based stuff. (As a disclaimer, I could actually see how FUN the MMO parties could be--if I knew what I was doing. But the idea of holding people back while looking like an imbecile who can’t use a mouse is mortifying--even if it is anonymous mortification xD).
       
      Thanks in advance for those who read through (or read all, bless you) of this post. Also, if you’ve been to school for game design and wouldn’t mind sharing what you knew beforehand or wish you’d known beforehand, that’d be great.  All I know is I'm going to do the flashpoint again, to just get over the jitters, and hope I get to mastering it a bit. I like the gaming community--but, weirdly enough, it scares the daylights out of me.

      Hello all,
      I was not sure where to place this so I decided to place this in the general forum. Please note, that I have not developed anything at this time. I am currently doing some research and scouting.
      I have been considering to develop a game controller. I was thinking that it would be nice if the controller registered as a Xbox 360 controller when connected to a windows PC. I could go out and get an actual 360 controller but I am redesigning the case and the electronics. So, I was thinking about utilizing the XUSB protocol.
      After doing some research, it appears that I am not able to find information regarding this protocol. I am starting to have concerns that the XUSB is proprietary to Microsoft. Is this the case? Are approved Microsoft accessories only allowed to use the XUSB? If so, then how do I become "approved" so that I can develop XUSB controllers?
      If this is not the case, then where would I be able to find documentation on XUSB communications?Or would i be able to use a USB Sniffer and basically reverse engineer the communications protocol between the controller and the PC?
      Note:
      Yes, I am aware that windows supports the DirectInput method. This is my fall back in the event that I can't get the XUSB protocol to move forward.
      Thank you

      We are a mobile game development startup and we published our 1st game a few days back and used admob in our games. After publishing the game we have not done any marketing and got only 15 installs so far and only earned around $0.10 USD through that game in admob. However admob terminated our adsense account saying that we did some Invalid Activity and the account can not be reinstated. We are very sure that none of our team members clicked on ads or played the game with the live ads. So I have a theory that some user clicked on our ads multiple times and our account was flagged due to that. We tried to communicate with admob team but we got automated replies.
       
      Now we are thinking of adding another ad network like mopub,chartboost,unityads,etc to our 1st game and the other 2 games which we will be launching in 1-2 weeks. Now the question i have is how can we prevent our account from getting suspended from them, also can we get a account manager from them who can handle our request and listen to our side of argument if something like this happens in future. Our plan is to launch around more games in 2018 and a lot more in 2019 but we are now in a delima which ad network to use.
