Abstract: This research is to study on the successfulness of the mobile game. An Angrybirds game has been chosen as a case study. One of the reasons of using Angry Birds as a case study is due to its high popularity worldwide, including our country Malaysia. It is so popular that even children at the age of 5-12 years old are also very familiar with this title. Due to that matter, a model adopted majorly through the adaptation of mobile game features stated by Mark Overmars and some little combination the Nielsen’s Ten Heuristics were used in order to design questionnaire for surveys. This study would identify the relationship among Games Design, Controls, Social Features, Assets and Navigational Features in determining mobile game successfulness. Based on the finding, it seems that there is a significant relationship between Games Design, Controls, Social Features, Assets and Navigational Features in Mobile Game Features
