Gaming apps are making money more than anything in the world today. Big companies invest in generating gaming apps based on their model that will not only amuse their customers but will also help them earn a huge sum. Game app developers have been revolutionising the gaming world ever since. From Nintendo to King today, games having been changing with every era and more and more software engineers are getting keen on making games more than ever.
So if you are new to the gaming world and aspiring software engineer, below tips might help you get to your goals:
Idea: no game can run without any idea. Your idea is what will create your masterpiece. Think out of the box. You need to check what the existent game app developers are generating. The more you keep yourself updated about the games of your interest that you want to develop your idea on the better it is going to give you clarity of the concept and what different you could do. So if you want to create a fighting game choose the niche that players like and are popular. Then search through the games and try to read the coding if you can. Think what different your could do and then your brain will be your warehouse where you can keep collecting the data and create vision ever so brilliant then put it into plan of action.
Technique: Work on gaming techniques which include knowledge of the language you want to build your game on whether it Java scripted or user friendly for iOS, Android etc. You should focus on creating an app that can work on multiple platforms. That will ensure maximum downloads and chances of your game to become a hit.
Functionality: Do not ignore this! You need to make your game in such a way that it takes minimum phone or CPU usage and give maximum user experience. If the system hangs, people are probably going to stop using your game and that will jeopardise your whole idea. So focus and create such functions that will not affect the system and will work smoothly wherever it is downloaded.
Graphics and Design: You cannot miss the aesthetical aspect of your gaming app. The characters, colours, effects, sound and any visuals used should be catchy, sharp and interesting. In the entertainment world you need to play with people’s mind. So it is important that in order to keep them hooked the aesthetics of the character, symbols, functions and sounds used should catch the attention of the player and make it interesting for them with levels and surprises so that they can go hours and hours without tiring.
You need to focus on the idea first and then everything else will follow. You can be the master in this field if you are clear and have confidence that your idea will work. You may get few defeats in the beginning but every defeat counts to makes you stronger each time. So don’t give up and try and try until you achieve perfection.
