Looking how Playfirst failed with their insertion on facebook with some of their successful franchises and, on the other side, looking how some ios arcade games are doing pretty fine on their Facebook versions, i wonder:
What platform should I/We target for? Which brings a better future or probabilities of success? (if the game is good of course).
To give some perspective on this subject:
Angry Birds or Jetpack Joyride are very successful games made first for IOS and then, when those made their entrance in facebook, both worked pretty fine, even when those are clearly more arcade and less "ville" in their gameplay.
At the same time, games that should work better on facebook failed there and worked better on IOS, like those of Playfirst(Cooking Dash).
So it's no more a matter of type of game for the best platform for the particular genre.
Any insight or experience on this, about what world worked better and why please share it.
