My Take on Facebook Messenger Game Apps
The first time I learned about games being played over Facebook Messenger, my reaction was, "here they go again!" We all know that one of the reasons Facebook became popular was their browser games, and here they go again.
There are positive and negative effects on this. One positive thing, is that developers can have another opportunity to develop and earn through messenger games. On the other hand, because of its massive audience, other game apps may receive fewer audience. Well, I just based it on my experience as a mobile game player. Since I started playing Everwing on Facebook Messenger, I tend to play less on Mobile Legends (other game app that I play). I also saw fewer online players on Mobile Legends compared before. I'm not saying that they absolutely switched to playing Messenger games instead. It's just a hunch.
Well, as a developer and as someone who loves 2d games, I really enjoy simple and almost no effort in how to play these HTML5 canvas games.
