Mobage is responsible for powering some of the best free Android and iOS social games available today. When you think of the word freemium Mobage should be the first company that comes to mind. They have created a community of over 30 million players all over the world playing a large selection of mobile games. Some of the titles that you may know are Rage of Bahamut, Tiny Tower, Blood Brothers and Paradise Island among many others. Mobage offers social aspects that are non-intrusive and easily managed along with games that will keep you entertained for hours on end.
What are the Social aspects of Mobage powered games?
Many of the social aspects of Mobage powered games are not even in their social portal as the types of games they support are multiplayer based games. Many of the games have PVP aspects as well as leader boards to keep you striving to beat other players all the time. Their games hold events where you compete with other players to get to the top of events without having to be number one in the game as a whole. They do of course have their own mobile social portal that is integrated with each title allowing you to see all of the games you play along with friends that you have.
Mobage Community Support and Interaction.
Mobage is one of the few companies that have unparalleled support and community interaction. If you have an idea they want to hear about it and you will get a personal response since they have real people reading everything you push their way. They have a feedback and issues reporting site that allows you to vote on ideas that are then passed on to developers. I have personally dealt with this and have always received feedback. Even if they just think that your idea is good they will send a thank you to let you know you have been heard. Just an FYI I never said that I ran an Android site before getting personal attention.

Mobage Coins (mobacoins) and the Need For Them.
To be completely honest mobacoins are expensive in relation to other mobiles games when it comes to spending real world money on virtual items. While mobacoins can help you progress throughout whichever game you have chosen they are rarely if ever required for anything in game. In general anything you can buy with mobacoins can be earned through regular game play. This being said Mobage Coins are not required to enjoy their games without spending a dime.
In conclusion Mobage has a great balance of games and features for a freemium structure. They power the best mobile games that can be downloaded for free without forcing any form of payment ever. They provide top level support and listen to the community. Please let us know how you feel about Mobage via comments below.
