GamesPeoplePlay is a mobile-game deathmatch tournament to decide what InMobi’s favourite game is. Every episode features two games squaring off against each other. InMobians play these games and decide which one is better. This continues till a winner is crowned. Oh, and we get to have a ton of fun while doing so!
"For when the One Great Scorer comes
To mark against your name,
He writes – not that you won or lost –
But how you played the Game." - Grantland Rice
“...But how you played the Game.”
That elegant line from legendary American sportswriter Grantland Rice typifies #GamesPeoplePlay. While we had our share of fun pitting games against each other to choose winners and losers, the point was that we had a good time playing ALL of them - from the colourful Dots to the two-tone Stay In The Line, from the destructive BREAKFINITY to the hip Skyline Skaters.
We slowly but surely whittled down the list from eight games to just two which brings us to…
Smash Hit and Aerox have weathered the storm, dodged the punches and maybe even used a cheatcode to reach the home stretch. How will they fare in the finals? We asked Atul Satija, VP of Revenue and Operations - InMobi, for his opinion.
Head to Head
1. Which game in your opinion deserves to be crowned the winner of season 1 of #GamesPeoplePlay ?
Atul: I’ve played all the games that featured on #GamesPeoplePlay and the one that really stands out is Smash Hit. It is the game that I’ve played the most in the last two months and something that is easy to play but difficult to master. The gameplay, graphics and sound combine really well to create a magical experience. Aerox is really good too but Smash Hit comes out on top here.

Atul wasn’t the only one who preferred Smash Hit. We also asked some friends of InMobi during GamesBeat 2014 for their opinion.

Our quest is over and the proverbial princess has been rescued. We set out to find InMobi’s favourite game and after 2 months of keenly contested match-ups, we have a winner.
Congrats Smash Hit and the publishers Mediocre Games. Your name goes up on our Game Hall of Fame!
