Mod menus are most commonly used in mobile games on Android and iOS at this time. However, they are also used on PC and other gaming systems as well. In some cases, game hacking tools are used to inject the mod menu code into the game memory as is the case with memory editors, such as GameGuardian or Cheat Engine. However, most mod menus are still downloadable game files.

What is a Mod Menu?

Mod Menus are the Porsche of mobile game modding and will generally be created by the most experienced modders out there.
