Many game companies are trying hard to try to build web and mobile games, and platforms are also eagerly hoping that developers can bring them new content stimulation and revenue growth. Here are a few that are working with Cocos Creator to make it easier for developers to use their platform.


1.      Google Adsense H5 Game Ads


When it comes to advertising on the web, you have to talk about Google AdSense, an advertising platform for Web sites, supporting both desktop and mobile.

Google AdSense H5 Game Ads does not involve a native platform, so that it can be accessed on Android, iOS, PC, Mac, and other platforms, and it is another important income path.


In May 2023, Google AdSense for HTML5 game ads plug-in shelved on Cocos Store, which is Google's cash cow specially designed for HTML5 game scenarios. It currently supports two types of ads: Interstitial ads and rewarded ads.

2.      Google Admob for Cocos Creator


Google AdMob - Apps on Google Play


Google AdMob is an advertising platform for mobile. Developers can integrate it into Android and iOS (coming soon) so native app applications can achieve profitability, and it is known for maximizing revenue and excellent user experience.


Google AdMob plugin is now available on the Cocos Store. Your Cocos Creator games packaged natively can be monetized with ads just like mini games: incentivized videos, banner ads, interstitial ads, and other ads.


In-game purchases + ads form a hybrid cash-out, which increases revenue for the game and provides a better gaming experience. According to some data analysis, more than 60% of mobile game players often use incentive videos for a better gaming experience. For example, unlocking weapons and props, speeding up the game process, and getting more coins will significantly increase user engagement and retention.


Regarding the user experience of Google AdMob, developers should pay attention to it and read more from our blog post. Don’t cheat users to click, watch, and affect their normal gameplay to enhance advertisement profitability. Your AdMob account will be easily limited, and the advertisement fill rate may be less.


The Google AdMob plugin on the Cocos Store only includes Android. According to the development team, the iOS version will be added soon. Please look forward to it.

I've been soaking in Poki, GamePix, and CrazyGame games for the past few days, and I'm feeling incredibly excited, and like I've got my childhood back!


Slightly inattentive, I fell into playing their games for half a day and watched many ads. Strangely enough, it did not not feel very offensive!


I strongly recommend that developers can go to experience the feeling, whether it is from the gameplay, art design, or regional culture to the commercialization of the game, will be able to gain.


That's all for today's sharing. I hope it will inspire and help you~
