Call of Duty: Mobile is a mobile installment of Call of Duty designed for iOS and Android devices. The free-to-play game released on October 1 and appeared almost simultaneously all over the world (except China, Vietnam and Belgium). Within 24 hours, the title was installed twice a million times. One day later, the number increased tenfold, and today it exceeds the ceiling of 35 million downloads.
According to the estimates of Sensor Tower, a mobile market analytics company, the title earned $2 million in microtransactions on its second day of operation only. Interestingly, Call of Duty: Mobile was the most downloaded in India, whose inhabitants account for 14 percent of the overall gaming user base. In this ranking, the United States is only in ninth place. The game has also climbed to the top of the list of the most frequently downloaded applications for iOS and Android in more than a hundred countries of the world.
Call of Duty: Mobile is developed by TiMi, owned by Chinese giant Tencent. The title is an FPS, offering many variants of the game known to fans of Call of Duty. The players can play in Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, Free-for-All and the popular 100-person Battle Royale modes. Among the maps there were also classics such as Nuketown, Crash and Hijacked. Also, individual models of weapons and equipment were taken directly from the earlier installments of the franchise (mainly Black Ops and Modern Warfare).
It is worth noting that the game is entirely based on the control system using the touch screen of our device. For a short time after the launch, the game offered the possibility to play with a Bluetooth controller (e.g. Dualshock 4). Activision quite quickly disabled the option, stating that its activation was a developers' mistake. After protests from the players, the developers assured that in the near future they will test the possibility of using controllers once more.
