Communicate and Socialize - There has been a notion among many that game development is for those nerds who sit all day on a pc. But this notion is completely wrong because it’s more than pc’s and you must be social.

Make Your Game Unique - Nowadays, people expect fun and interesting games and your game should be different from the rest. It is not wrong to be inspired by others but in the end your creativity should be visible in that particular game.

Therefore it is important to correct your UI, as it is vital to the game and navigation purposes.

Stop Publishing Unpolished Games - What could possibly be worse than publishing a lousy game. Many developers often publish bad products on the play store and expect people to play them.

Only publish those games which are fully polished and decent enough for the users.  It should be noted that this only applies to mobile games and not for all games.

Stop Neglecting Previous Games - Most developers are so busy developing new game, that they don’t even care what happened to their previous ones. and they don’t even bother to fix bugs

Last but not the least, your goal shouldn't be to make loads of money. You must understand that this is a creative field and should be treated as a top priority if you have to reach maximum audiences. It doesn’t matter whether you are an independent developer or a business, this is probably your greatest advantage.
