Foot Chinko (HTML5 Game) . Level designing and game flow arranging

Foot Chinko, our casual approach to football (soccer) games, has the biggest amount of levels ever seen on a Ravalmatic game (+90 levels). Editing them was a major effort per se, but then, arranging them properly wasn't either a simple task. Without no particular literature about this specific stuff, here's how we figured we could handle the task.

Producing game soundtracks

In this article we'll cover the producing of game soundtracks and how to guide composers so their tracks fit your game and communicate important aspects.

In this occasion, Daniel Ara, helped us to create the OST of Pocahontas Slots, a light casual approach to slot machines with an indian flavour.

How JScrambler is helping us to protect our code

It's wonderful to make html5 games and javascript is a nice programing language but unfortunately everyone can access to the source code of our games. And that includes those cheeky guys who doesn't want to respect existing license agreements or those just looking for "inspiration" for their next cloned game.

Luckily we have an ally called JScrambler.

JScrambler is quite intuitive and it's web based. There are some other javascript obfuscators but JScrambler offers the most complete and secure solution.

Stories can also be told by level menus

We develop casual games, which in narrative terms means that, generally, stories tend to be overlooked in our field:
  • Some odd pigs stole your eggs and you immolate your people (birds) to erase their kind.
  • Someone leaves a hungry critter at your doorstep and you feed it a la "Home Alone". 
  • You use a machine-gun as a jetpack to burst into a factory and gather some cash that would allow you to get a green mohawk haircut (??).
The list could go on and on, and the quality of stories would diminish until we got to: "a sugar-dealer majordomo invites you to move candies around".

Before going any further we must say that despite their minimalist stories, these four games rely on a solid gameplay that's been proven highly motivating for millions of players.

Pocahontas Slots an HTML5 game about love, freedom and golden coins

We are about to release Pocahontas Slots, a HTML5 slots machine that we'd like to sell in the form of non exclusive licenses.

The game mechanism itself is not particularly complicated, but instead, lots of work came from the visual effects tweaking and its polishing. You'll certainly notice that once you play the game, specially if you are familiar with the current state of HTML5 games.
