The Top 12 Hyper Casual Games – April 2021

Each week inside the Academy we host Academy Live, our flagship weekly #gamedev and mobile game design 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 April 2021!

I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a mixed bag on the Appstore for me this month. We certainly saw the TikTok meme style games dominate along with the girly themed games coming out a dime a dozen.

Nothing especially stood out in general which considering the amount of releases, is quite surprising. I really wanted to love most of the games more but found myself kinda underwhelmed.

Games such as Titans 3D from Voodoo and Attack on Giants by HOMA GAMES didn’t quite pull off satisfying control systems for me. Both games somewhat inspired by Shadow of the Colossus which is a tactic we recommend inside Hyper Casual Elite with “AAA” games.

The Giant Slaying idea is certainly super strong and is up for grabs I’d say.

Then there was Slice it All, again by Voodoo, and one we played last week on Academy Live. Currently sitting at No.2 overall games in the iOS Games Chart, this is probably one of the best games we’ve seen this year.

If you didn’t manage to catch our deconstruction, be sure to check it out as we dove into what we can take away from their success and translate it into some new. A super satisfying experience and they completely nailed the essence of a Hyper Casual Game.

This week we saw Zynga / Rollic purchase the High Heels Studio Uncosoft, Sensor Tower released their Q1 download report and of course the roll out of iOS 14 and ATT.

Don’t forget, you can watch all the shows in full ( Over 190+ episodes ), covering all aspects of powerful effective game design, the latest trends in mobile gaming news, up to the minute marketing strategies and everything about hyper-casual publishers in general. You’ll have access to all our workshops and courses along with a growing, active game developers community to chat, get feedback and collaborate with.
