Mobile gaming is a research field of growing interest due to increasing usage numbers and revenue rates. The increases are mostly caused by improvements of mobile devices and networks that enable better performance and usability of mobile games. In this paper a new framework for the development in a mobile gaming platform environment is presented. The gaming platform includes financial transfers that require specific precautions in the development process as well as in the maintenance of the platform. The development framework is evaluated in a comparative research design against other available frameworks that also meet most of these specific requirements. Evaluation criteria applied in the comparative setting are efficiency and effectiveness in form of development effort and expenses. As a result we present the differences between frameworks as well as disadvantages and advantages of our framework regarding economic as well as technical target values.
