Do any of y'all play app games?

I have not, and I've got a 85% chance of being able to work on an app game doing graphics and maybe sound stuff.

I'd be interested to know what y'all like / dislike.

The game I'm going to be working on is a learning game (with a great idea) - so I'm not sure if I want to go all sparkly jewely with the art design, or go more carved stone / historic / polished.

Do y'all think a more sophisticated look would work better than the classic sugar coated glassy gem feel of almost every game?

User friendly, clean and sophisticated look would definitely be a good start!

If you want a more "mainstream" shiny look it could be 2.0 so to speak. Learning is probably more stimulated through a clean layout :-)

Good luck!

I don't play app games, but I like the shiny designs as well. Though of course functionality is what's important, gfx are only a presentation. In short, you should focus on usability, and the app shouldn't be about gfx making skills (unless you intend to do that exactly :D).

This is actually a really cool project, and it's way better as a touch game than with a mouse.

Clean / vectory stuff is fun, but I think I'm going to go with a more realistic shiny amber look.

I've been here over 10 years! Yay!

Anyways, JohnWE and I finished up the app.
Full version: 120 hours of gameplay (60 levels)

Free version: 6+ Hours gameplay (3 levels)

It's pretty fun to play, and you even learn Chinese! I've learned mostly numbers 1-8. =)

Too bad I'm already learning Japanese. Adding in some Chinese could make it really confusing. :D


This link is dead. It's only still here because, err... yknow, it's some sort of... memorial.
