Develop a game for Lokas new flavor, watermelon and lemon. The gameplay would be based on a traditional platform game where you catch falling objects. To symbolize the new flavor you would have to capture five melon slices and a lemon in so many Loka bottles as possible. To increase the joy of playing and increase the number of downloads we had to augment the game idea to contain unexpected elements such as using the built gyro and accelerometer as game controller.
The application reached the second place on the App Store in the first week after launch.
To create a surprising moment, we gave falling gold caps the property to change the gyro control to the touch screen control. Besides the obvious time bonuses we added several secret fruit combinations and to gradually increase the difficulty we added wind to effects the physics of the game engine.
