Mobile game development has become a highly sought-after skill. Word Crazy was the brilliant idea of our client who wanted to see games like Scrabble and Words With Friends but allow for more challenging play. The game designers needed professional development assistance to make the project happen.
This game has multiple languages and different types of boards to increase the fun and make you think a little harder. The game creators wanted to create an option for people worldwide to play against friends and AI. This game had a wider audience than standard Scrabble-like games with languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. This game could be used to study new languages and play with friends around the world.
The creators had a great idea but lacked the technical skills to tackle the project. When they reached out to us at Idea Maker, we were happy to take on the challenge.
After detailed discussions about the goals for the game and the platforms, the creators wanted to make the game work for, we made a plan of action. The idea was to make the game work with up to four players. The players could choose different boards to play on and could be people who knew one another or were randomly matched.
Mobile Game Development
The game was built seven years ago and retained its 4+ star rating on the Google Play Store. Word Crazy is one of the very few games that can accurately claim they’ve had no crashes since its publication, and much of that success is because of the Google Cloud base used to build the program. This game boasts some of the best user experience reviews on the Play Store. It sits currently at over 10K downloads.
What We Did
Talking to your friends while you play makes most games monumentally more fun. This is why we created an in-game chat system for Word Crazy. Adding communication options within the game interface makes it easier to banter and have fun with your opponents.
Basing this build on the cloud servers of a vast platform, Google gives the design more stability than if it were built on an independent platform. The Google server has provided long-term stability and flawless running since its launch.
One of the best things about well-designed games is the ability to jump in and play without a tutorial or a frustratingly steep learning curve. Word Crazy has held a AAA User Experience (UX) rating and is praised heavily for its easy-to-use interface.
