Mobile video games, beyond being video games that just happen to be available for mobile devices, are a type of video game explitely built with several design choices in mind to force or encourage particular behaviors among its players.

Many mobile video games aren't made to be played continuously; they will often have a resource-gathering mechanic that is time-limited. This often means that gameplay is divided into many slots, often only consisting of a few minutes each.
