We’re on our last stop as we look around the world for games built using Cocos from the most celebrated companies in the mobile industry today. We have already been to Korea, Japan, and the USA. But today, we want to end with the best companies in Europe. Europe has been red hot these past few years with mobile games.
Cocos2d-x was one of the earliest game engines used in Europe and had many big hits such as Diamond Dash by Wooga and Geometry Dash by Robert Topala. But with a new generation of game developers comes a new generation game engine, Cocos Creator. So we’re here to celebrate companies using either of our products (Cocos2d-x and Cocos Creator) and hope we continue to help them build the best games on mobile, desktop, and the console for this year and beyond.
Here are a few of the companies using Cocos to get to the top of the mobile charts:
This company is known as the kings of flash games, they’ve built a lot of extremely successful games for years on the web as well as publish some of the biggest hit games you probably didn’t even know were made with Cocos. .
This Swiss company started in 2001 and continues to bring out games everyone loves on mobile, PC, and consoles.
This year’s big hit was popular all over the world during the height of the pandemic. Millions have played the game both as a browser game and as the mobile game about taking over the world by being a virus, bacteria, or some evil thing coming from monkeys.
The game is built by the development team at Ndemic Creations.

Ubisoft is one of the pioneers in mobile gaming, along with its French counterpart, Gameloft. Ubisoft started making its own games for mobile in 2003 with game franchises like Assasin’s Creed, Rayman, and Just Dance. But now are set to release one of their biggest games this year using Cocos.

The team at Cocos have met the group multiple times and always enjoy chatting and seeing what they are doing next.

This German company has a place in our hearts for their love of pushing the limits on mobile gaming with games that are more for the serious simulator gamer as well as a few fun strategy games.
The company is already 400 gamers strong, making it one of the more prominent mobile game companies on our list (excluding Ubisoft of course)
