The Top 100 Hyper Casual Games of 2020

Hyper Casual Games Video

2020 was certainly a year like no other and, whilst the world changed around us, life on the App Store continued and so did we.

Each Friday on Academy Live, our weekly mobile game design show, we live-streamed our market research and looked at all the new game releases on the App Store.

These games are not only from the biggest publishers, but also fresh new prototypes currently being tested and tweaked aspiring to hit those magic KPI’s and sign a deal. By keeping a continuous eye on the market, we get to see the games often within a day of their release and identify new trends as they happen, something that can be vital when building your games.

We believe to truly understand what goes into creating these successful games, you need to get them in your hands and break them apart.

What are the key ingredients under the bonnet that makes these better than the countless others that don’t make the cut.

We deconstructed well over 120 games inside the Academy in 2020 and focussed in on their game design, level design, UI and user experience. Aside from being a ton of fun, having our members along side us sharing their thoughts and opinions, we essentially crowd source our understanding collectively and figure out what we believe contributes to each games success.

This is a super powerful way to get insights and ultimately make us all more stronger and more effective game makers and producers.

All that to say, here’s our list of the best hyper casual games to hit the market in 2020.

Most are the trailblazers, the ones that rocked the charts and the games you saw in the Top 10 on App Store, games from the biggest hyper casual publishers around today.

We can’t wait to see all the new games in 2021 along with rolling out a huge new platform update here at the Academy. it’s going to be Epic with a huge new training program and some tools we think you’ll going to absolutely love.

So, Jilly and I wish you a very happy new year and here’s to a fresh 12 months of awesomeness.

There’s so much more to learn and discover inside the Academy and you can simply click here for full details on how to become an Academy Member.
