Mobile gaming on the smartphone platform did not really take off in a big way, with most of the titles being casual gaming ones, although some really did garner its fair share of fans like the Angry Birds franchise which has proved to be quite the marketing powerhouse and phenomenon across the world, even receiving its very own theme park in the process.
