A game programmer is a software engineer who primarily develops computer or video games.  Games programming has many specialised disciplines, such as a graphics programmer, sound programmer, user interface programmer and game scripter.

A game programmer should not be confused with a game designer.  While many games designers are also programmers it is rare for one person to do both in modern games development.

With the recent explosion in popularity of smartphones such as the iPhone and Android, there is a great demand for mobile applications, including games.   Game programmers with the know-how to develop games on such platforms are in high demand.
