The Best 12 Hyper Casual Games – May 2020

Hyper Casual Games Video

Each week inside the Academy we host Academy Live, our flagship weekly #gamedev show. Covering in-depth Market Analysis and Trend Research, we break apart the Top Games from the App Store each week.

We deep dive into what makes them successful, and just why are they trailblazing the charts. This up to the minute research ensures we’re creating games that players will love and the Top Publishers will actually want. It’s the best way to understand current hyper-casual game design at a deeper level.

We love it, our members love it and we think you’ll love it too.

Here’s the run down of the 12 games we put through their paces this month. These are simply the best hyper-casual games we saw out on iOS in May 2020!
