Welcome to Game Mob, a home for mobile gaming related news, reviews, previews, gameplay, and guides. They cover quality games across iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows (occassionally), and Blackberry (rarely).
Along with games, their writers like discovering and sharing the latest gadgets and technologies around gaming outside of PC and consoles. Game Mob‘s humble beginnings began in December 2012, from just an idea of creating a hub for strictly mobile gamers.
As they saw this industry rapidly shift from casual games to comprehensive gaming experiences, they felt a need for a site that showcases that, the best qualities of gaming on a mobile device. So, they created Game Mob – Gaming + Mobile.
It started out as a small blog and after a few iterations of the site here and there, they only recently launched the official site. They attend major events such as E3, GDC, and PAX.
Also run quality promotions with companies such as Steel Series, Gameloft, and Indie Studios. They also are a go-to source for the latest mobile gaming news for other tech sites.
There is a lot more to come. Join us, become part of the family, contribute.
