HC - PUZZLE
Hyper casual games where you have to solve some kind of puzzles.

HC - STEER
Hyper casual games that require timing and/or reaction and the gameplay focuses on steering of an object either with a finger or by tilting the device.

HC - SWIPE/DRAG
Hyper casual games where the gameplay focuses on swiping your finger or dragging and releasing the right way (e.g. shooting hoops in basketball).

HC - .IO
Very specific type of hyper casual games focusing on multiplayer player vs. player action. In short, the idea of .io games is to grow yourself (you might be e.g. a snake or a circle) by eating other player smaller than you and ultimately become the king of the whole gameplay arena.
Example games: Agar.io, Farmers.io
HC - OTHER
This subgenre covers hyper casual games that don't belong to any of the hyper casual subgenres described above, but are nevertheless hyper casual by nature.
