New Delhi, June 25: While action games continue to dominate the global gaming eco-system, most of the games Indian women download are puzzle based, showed a study by digital payments platform PayPal on Monday. Of all the games downloaded by the participants in the past three months, 65 per cent were action games that emphasise physical challenges including fighting, platform and shooter games, said the study titled “2018 Global Gaming Research”. However, 60 per cent of the games Indian women downloaded were puzzle-based.

For the study, a survey was conducted across 25 markets involving nearly 25,000 active paying gamers. With a share of 73 per cent, Google Play Store dominated the platforms Indians used to purchase gaming content – including full game downloads and additional content. (IANS)
