    As an F2P specialist it's one of the tasks of Teut Weidemann to analyze successful F2P games of the competition. In this case, the best monetizing mobile game Puzzle and Dragons is being analyzed: how it works, why it works, and spiced with numbers and best practices on how to translate its key mechanics to your own games.


    The audience will learn which game mechanics makes PaD so successful and which general monetization and design mechanics can be adapted to their own games. They also will learn why the game isn't #1 in America or Europe, while it is an unbeaten #1 in Asia.
