I'm making a simple cookie-tapper type of game in HTML5/Phonegap for Android. I have a bit of a layout problem.
Since the game should be possible to play on both landscape and horisontal, the cookies/chew buttons should only be appearing in the playbox (square). But what about the rest of the screen? Is it ok if the menu bar (top) is falling into screen? or should I perhaps remove it completely.
I'm looking for games where you simulate a factory owner. I think I saw some form of practice game for lean production once. I also remember a fun boardgame as a child where you started out with a grape made out of clay, and then had to move through a grape factory (knifes and such). The player with the most clay left won.
So: are there any factory games out there?
EDIT: factory game = preferably a production simulator.
Recently I studied some cognitive psychology and it gave me a lot of new interesting insights and terminology that I can use in game design. I had a similar revelation when studying graphical design many years ago. I don't plan a career in game production, but I would still like to increase my knowledge in game-design vocabulary & terminology.
Those of you who have a more formal education and/or working in the industry; do you have any suggestions of good books or other sources for terminology?
Reading some random tutorials works, but I would like something more concise authoritative(?), e.g. something that can be considered a standard.
