Cheat Prevention Techniques for Mobile Video Games
As mobile video games grew out of a niche and became mainstream with the advent of iPhone in 2007, little development experience on these platforms made those games vulnerable to cheats and hacks. In the last few years, an increasing number of developers are focusing on online competitive games which makes cheat prevention more vital to the fairness of their products as well as their revenue from them. In this talk, we will take a closer look at common cheats as well as some obscure ones that we have encountered in our own games during the last few years. Then we will introduce the methods that we have tried, their effectiveness and their detrimental effects on user experience.
