I’ve only had glasses for a few years, and my eyes are still relatively okay, but I’m baffled by how often I encounter mobile phone games I can barely read.
Granted, I hardly know anything about game development, and I’m sure changing font sizes can create problems like broken text boxes or worse. I do understand this, and I sympathize, but at the same time, I can adjust the default font sizes on my iPhone—so why do I still have to squint at some of my games?
My open plea to mobile game developers is to please consider designing your games around slightly larger default text sizes. Or better yet, if the scope is manageable, give players the option to adjust your game’s font size.
