A History of Mobile Games From Wikipedia:
In the early 2000’s (decade), mobile games had gained mainstream popularity in Japanese mobile phone culture. By 2003, a wide variety of mobile games were available on Japanese phones. They ranged from puzzle games to 3D games with quality graphics. Older arcade-style games became very popular on mobile phones, which were an ideal platform for arcade-style games designed for shorter play sessions.
Mobile gaming interest was raised when Nokia launched its N-Gage phone and handheld gaming platform in 2003. Meanwhile, many game developers had noticed that more advanced phones had color screens and enough memory and processing power to do reasonable gaming. Mobile phone gaming revenues passed 1 billion dollars in 2003, and passed 5 billion dollars in 2007, accounting for a quarter of all videogaming software revenues. Also, more advanced phones came to the market which strongly added to the appeal of mobile phone gaming.
Due to the debut of app stores, plus the low-cost retail price of downloadable phone apps, games available on smartphones increasingly rival the video game console market. Independent small developers are entering the game market en masse by creating mobile games with the hope they will gain popularity with smartphone gaming enthusiasts.
