Android developer wanted for a 2D game with geometric shapes
Jul 2014 - Feb 2015
Adeel is an excellent professional.
Amerald is a complete disaster. DO NOT HIRE THEM. Just go with Adeel.
My experience with Amerald has been bittersweet. I accepted the high price offered to get a fast and quality work. I definitely didn´t get the "fast" part, but I got part of the "quality work" side.
The job was to develop a mobile game from sketch. The design phase, for starters went slow, but I was satisfied with the result, altough I was expecting more ideas and collaboration to improve the game since Amerald had 8 years of experience on the field, and I was a noob.
We past the first 3-4 deadlines, so I had lot's of time to think about improvements for the game, which I did, and Amerald agreed to include some of them, charging some, and doing others for free, to try to compensate for the huge delay and the inconsistent communication and workflow.
Closing the project has been a little bit of a ngihtmare since Amerald tried to get a 5-star rating from me, when it was clearly not the case.
Nevertheless, if you want quality job, and you are VERY clear with them about timing, maybe including economic compensation in case of delay, or huge delay, like in my case, they could be a good option.
We agreed a 6 month free support as compensation, around september, and after half a year of delay, they almost break the agreement, which now stands. So, happy ending for a hard process.
So keep Amerald in mind, but be VERY specific about timing in your contract.
