Mobile Game Testing using Appium and Image Recognition

Hi there Appium enthusiasts!

I recently wrote a blog post about Appium with real devices and using that combo to test mobile games (I used Clash of Clans as an example) with image recognition features:

Appium seems to be an instrumental choice for all mobile game developers - any thoughts from ecosystem about this? Or any other best practices on this field?


It’s really good to know that Appium can do this. Can you make your post more descriptive or provide a sample on github.

Yes, absolutely. The code needs some cleaning first :slight_smile:
