I want someone who is experienced and specializing in creating 2d multi player games for an Android tab. We will be providing the vector graphics for it. Games are multiplayer, making use of coloring, matching, puzzles and allocated time usage per user (like chess, texas poker etc) so I need someone with these expertise.
The main goal of this game is to make students
- identify others emotions
- learn times used of something
- share their belongings
- request for items they need
Here are the specs we need the app to be for
Tablet WXGA Resolution (1280x800)
a. Galaxy Tab 10.1
b. Galaxy Note 10.1
c. Galaxy Tab 7.7
d. Galaxy Note 1
Tablet WSVGA Resolution (1024x600)
a. Galaxy Tab2 7.0
b. Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
There are 3 main features for the apps
- Storyboard - allowing users to create video and image based storyboards and saving them for later use. Please see this link http://a4cwsn.com/2013/03/picture-me-calm/ to get an understanding of storyboards. Scroll down and watch the video.
- Challenges - we have 3 challenges which test 3 skills of the students
- Emotion identifier (one player) - we help children identify emotions by allowing them to match. Please scroll down and see the video on this link http://a4cwsn.com/2013/03/expressions-by-edninja/
- Assembling (two players) - Please see this link http://www.smallgames.pro/games-for-toddlers/building-a-house/ and play the game. Its straightforward but we allow 2 players to play at a time and we give them a chance to either assemble once piece at a time or 2 pieces at a time so that they take turns and finish the game.
- Putting the shapes in (up to 4 players) - This game is the same as this. Please see this link http://www.kidestore.co.uk/images/images_big/melissa_and_doug_shape_sorter_cube.jpgW We have all played this game and it is fairly simple but it is played between 2-4 players. Users need to put all the shapes in the hole to complete the game but they will not have all the shapes, they will need to borrow and share with each other and they all the players need to finish the game in order to finish it.
All the games need to have the user progress monitored such as time taken to finish, hit/miss ratio, sharing/non sharing ratio. All of these stats will be recorded for each player and will be displayed in the progress section of the app where the teacher can even put some comments and email parents.
I have attached a file explaining what i have mentioned. I will provide the graphics for the game in vector forms and psds/jpegs as its simple 2d. All the files, history, info of players will be held on a server which I will buy. So you will need to create the database and web services for the app over there.
This app needs to be finished on May 10th and right now the budget is not too high on this project because of not too great work with a previous contractor so I wasted a bit on that contractor so do good work on this, you will be rewarded with a lot of my other projects as I run a digital agency.
I want talented and creative people to apply so please, no template applicants, I will reject them immediately. I want people who
- are great with android apps and games and have a lot of experience with them
- knows how to create database's, restful webservices, hosting web services and making use of them in apps
- experienced in developing multi player games for android
- has 5-8 really good examples of previous ANDROID based games
- someone who writes good code, knows how to test the app well and puts comments in the code so other programmers can make changes
