Discover the secrets of a successful hypercasual game with the next free PocketGamer.biz RoundTable

The next installment of the PocketGamer.biz RoundTable series takes place on Tuesday, August 24th with a dive into the secrets of a successful hypercasual game, in association with Sunday.

In some respects, these level-based, minimalistic games hark back to an earlier, classic era of gaming, where a powerful gameplay mechanic was all you needed to win hearts and minds.
