Gaming as a category in India has seen a year-on-year growth of nearly 30%. Last year, India overtook the US to become the second largest game download market in the world with over 5 billion installs. Covid-19 further accelerated the growth in the online gaming market, quotes Hirav Shah, India’s top Business Astrologer cum Astro Strategist and Thought leader.
More investors are putting capital into the sector after the unprecedented growth in gaming during these times.
On that note, the crowd in our country who are always glued to gaming apps are kids. Not just in India but also all over the world, kids are seen to be mostly engrossed in their worldly lives of gaming.
Let’s take a look at the reasons for the same as explained by Hirav Shah, Celebrated Astro-Strategist.
In a video game, you start, and the next action is up to you. Games can appear to children to be alive, even magical. To a certain extent, that fascination is just a healthy extension of the child’s imagination. And finally, for certain children, games can provide a sense of efficacy they lack in real life. So in summary: kids like gaming apps because they are social, fantastical, and offer a means of escape. Parents have trouble playing games because most parents didn’t have immersive games growing up, and with age comes poorer motor skills. And of course, games are suited to much longer individual sessions than other mediums, which requires time many adults don’t have.
Now, let’s find out the 5 gaming apps which are still popular among kinds and which have made it to the ‘Hirav Shah’s List’ in 2020.
Duolingo has a rating of 4.7 on Google Play Store with more than 100 million user downloads. The app teaches people how to speak a new language. It’s known for its engaging and effective style of teaching which is to let people play mini-games until they understand the new language. It’s both fun and educational and it’s also usable by both kids and adults so you can learn a new language right along with your kids.
The pandemic has boosted Duolingo’s fortunes. People stuck at home and glued to their screens have been flocking to the addictive app, which offers instruction in nearly 40 languages, including the fantasy tongue High Valyrian from Game of Thrones. Duolingo’s simple three-minute lessons are similar to cell phone games that reward users with points and treasure chests.
2. Youtube Kids
Youtube Kids has a rating of 4.3 on Google Play Store with more than 100 million user downloads. YouTube Kids is an effort by Google to separate the kid friendly content on YouTube from the rest of it and then put that content in its own application. YouTube Kids is a good resource for parents and there are a ton of videos available for kids to watch. The app also comes with Chromecast support so you can watch it on TV
YouTube Kids was created to give kids a more contained environment that makes it simpler and more fun for them to explore on their own, and easier for parents and guardians to guide their journey as they discover new and exciting interests along the way.
3. Kids Doodle
Kids Doodle has a rating of 4.4 on Google Play Store with more than 50 million user download. It features neon style colors on a black background that is somewhat reminiscent of the old Light Brights we played with as kids. Children can draw and color whatever they want, save it for later, and even create slideshows with their drawings. It comes with 24 brushes including popular drawing options such as crayon.

4. Animals For Kids
Animals for Kids has a rating of 4.2 on Google Play Store with more than 1 million user downloads. It’s a simple app and is intended for children aged one to four years old.

5. Thinkrolls:Kings & Queens
Thinkrolls:Kings & Queens has a rating of 3.8 on Google Play Store with more than 500K user download.
All of the entries in the Thinkrolls series are great; but this latest slice of gentle gaming fun brings a regal air to its dozens of logic and gravity puzzles (in the sense the roly-poly protagonists wear crowns, unless you decide to – for some reason – play as a chicken).
The goal is to clear a pathway so the rotund hero can continue progressing through a massive maze. The snag is this involves figuring out how to work with all kinds of contraptions, like gears, bridges, hatches, and even a harp that makes an otherwise ravenous crocodile sleepy.
Just the thing to get tiny minds working overtime, while sneakily getting them interested in video games. Its an epic logic puzzle game packed with science, physics and fun concepts.
As well all know that in these unprecedented times of Pandemic, 95 percent kids are homebound and into gaming apps totally. Seeing the potential in this industry, innumerable investors started putting in their money in this industry hoping for massive returns but many start-ups failed and many are still struggling to make it. They had everything, every resource intact. Just what was lacking was, consulting an expert for a 2nd opinion. Consulting a Business Astrologer for the way forward !
