[Android Arcade/Educational] New game released, remote collaboration

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I would like to announce I game that I just published in Google Play. It is called Clever Owl's Math Arcade; as the name suggests, it is an arcade game in which the player has to solve math expressions in order to score points. At each level, the expressions get more difficult. It was designed so that both kids and adults could have some fun with it - the former by solving the simpler levels and getting better at performing calculations, and the latter by trying to beat the harder levels - not so easy as it seems, in fact!

Regarding the development, one nice thing is that the game was made though a remote collaboration between me (the developer) and the guys at Team Don Corgi (http://doncorgi.carbonmade.com/), who created all the visual art. We met through Reddit and it really worked out!

 

As for the technical specs, development was made in Java, with the aid of the libGDX framework (http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/). Even though it was not super complex, coding the whole thing taught me a lot about how to best organize the components and coordinate the different parts of the game (animations, change of screens, levels, etc).

 

I did face some struggle since releasing the game to make it discoverable in Google Play, as even searching for the whole title did not prove to be of much use. However, it's not been long since publishing and I've been tweaking a little with title & description to try and improve things, so I hope to improve on that area as well.

 

If anyone would like to review the game and provide feedback, that would be greatly appreciated. I just released one update improving some things based on suggestions I received. Also, if anyone wants to know about some specific part of the development, technologies, or anything else, please feel free to ask!

 

Thanks a lot,

Renato.
