In meteorology, supercells are massive thunderstorms that are characterized by a deep, persistent rotating updraft which often results in hail, massive winds, intense downpours, and tornados. Knowing this, it makes perfect sense that the guys and girls in Helsinki, Finland chose precisely this name for their mobile game development company in 2010. It is hard to believe that Supercell has only been around since the beginning of the decade considering how many hit games the studio has already been able to release. Like a thunderstorm, the Finnish developer came out of nowhere and quickly made people aware of its presence. It shook the entire industry with its high quality games. Particularly Clash of Clans has become a synonym for successful and AAA mobile gaming. It is no surprise that the title of the strategy game has defined an entire genre of mobile games seeing how popular it has become. Many other studios have even gone so far as to describe their gameplay as having Clash of Clans elements. If that isn’t a compliment for Supercell, we don’t know what is!
While Supercell launched quite a few games a few years after it had been founded, the number decreased for a while after that. In the batch of games that were released in 2012 particularly Clash of Clans and Hay Day stood out. They would remain two major highlights in the publisher’s portfolio for the coming years. Up until this day, Clash of Clans remains one of the most influential mobile games proving that Supercell is truly a force to be reckoned with. While the studio might not overrun the market with Supercell games, the titles that do come out are high quality. If you are looking for a new mobile game, you can be sure that you will find one that is worth your time in Supercell’s portfolio. Particularly Boom Beach published in 2013 also managed to follow in Clash of Clans’ footsteps.
What makes Supercell such a great company? The Finnish publisher seems to really take its time before releasing new games. Their titles have a great consistency in their gameplay, design, and overall presentation making them well-rounded products. Their mobile games are completely free-to-play and feature a truly well-balanced business model which is actually free. Their dedication and high standards became particularly clear when they canceled development on Spooky Pop, their first new app in almost a year, because it didn’t live up to the high standards that the studio has for itself. What are some of the key features that you can expect from the studio’s portfolio?
Supercell truly has a well-rounded portfolio and high-quality mobile games. Find their apps in your Google Play Store or your iTunes Store.
