Smartphones and tablets have really revolutionized the gaming market and thus motivated many people to start with the virtual hobby. Today, the smartphone is the most popular gaming platform for Germans. This development has mainly taken place in recent years. Now more and more mobile gamers are asking themselves: why not play on the tablet? So could it be that the tablet is experiencing a revival among gamers?
Tablets: The bridge between smartphone and PC
Mobile games have their own charm and are even preferred by many players to complex video games. The rounds of mobile games are usually shorter, and the controls are easier to learn.

This is where the tablet offers the opportunity to combine the best of two worlds. On the one hand, all gaming apps that are also offered on smartphones can be used on the tablet, and on the other hand, the display has a comfortable size for many genres.
