Smart Mobile Gamers is an initiative of the ISGA, we believe passionately in giving gamers the tools and advice they need to have a positive gaming experience.
Mobile games are an increasingly popular form of digital entertainment, with games like Candy Crush and Angry Birds being played by millions across the world. Like other forms of online media, knowing how to manage your game play and deal with any problems you might encounter is key to enjoying the mobile games experience; the Smart Mobile Gamers website provides the guidance, tips and expert advice to achieve that.
The website has information for everyone. You could be a parent who wants to manage your child’s in-app purchase spend; a teacher wanting to work mobile games safety advice into a lesson, or a gamer who is concerned that their game play is getting out of control.
The website includes:
Basic information on what mobile games are and how you play them;
Guidance on how to use the tools available to manage your game experience – including how to manage in-game spending purchases, turn off game notifications and use age ratings;
Expert advice on how to deal with any difficulties you might encounter when playing mobile games – from unpleasant behaviour from other players to how to moderate the time spent playing games;
A directory of further online resources to turn to if you have a question or problem regarding mobile games
We have partnered with some of the world’s most respected digital safety organisations and experts to create the Smart Mobile Gamers portal, including the Family Online Safety Institute, Childnet International, Project Rockit and Dr Richard Graham, a leading consultant and adolescent psychiatrist.
