Nektan is an international mobile game developer and platform provider. The headquarters are in Gibraltar, but they have offices in Europe and North America, where their biggest markets are. It is a B2B company offering an end-to-end service. They design, build and operate mobile games, both real-money and free versions. In 2013, they acquired Mfuse and its existing mobile game platform.
Specialists In Mobile Games
Nektan builds all its games in HTML5, a specific mobile gaming technology base. This means that their content is always accessible via internet-enabled devices such as a smartphone, a tablet or a desktop.
Because Nektan is a new company which has focused specifically on creating games for the mobile market, this means all of its games look really good and play even better on mobile devices – for example, they integrate touchscreen technology compatibility into all of their games.
This specialization means that Nektan games look fresh and modern and are intuitive and easy to play. Their games, designed with mobile gaming in mind, are characterized by fluid and engaging animations and high-definition graphics that always work well on a smaller screen.
What Have They Made?
Again, because Nektan are relatively new to the market, they are not quite a household name yet. They have already created an impressive portfolio of up to one hundred games, including slots, scratch cards and casino table games. These range from Nektan originals like Best of British to some high-powered franchise names like Aliens, South Park and Guns’n’Roses.
Best of British is one of Nektan’s most successful and popular slots so far. Launched in 2014, the fifteen-payline slot features very British stereotypes, such as bulldogs, telephone boxes and fish and chips, on every reel. It was wildly popular with the American market.
Another Nektan success was Carnival Cups, based on the 2014 World Cup football tournament held in Rio. With simple but bold graphics and straightforward gameplay, this slot was ideal for mobile gaming enthusiasts and football fans alike.
The future looks good as well: Nektan makes all the games for the Sun newspaper’s free-to-play offerings, and they are currently in talks to create a game based on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me. Nektan are experts in the free-to-play sector, where audiences may not want to gamble real money but are likely to make in-app purchases to enhance their gaming experience.
What To Look Out For
Nektan have a simple, functional approach to designing games and are fast establishing themselves as players in the freemium market – both with their own games and with franchised content. You should expect crisp graphics, simple to use and intuitive controls and some nifty animations, all running smoothly on the internet-enabled device of your choosing.
