8) Please write down if you have any suggestion:
- The controller is a bit hard to control.
- just the control and the color the contrast
- graphic can be more interesting (like adding effect); Add music, sound effect will more great
- Add in Power up features
- Add more features
- Add more animation
- Movement of plane can be smoother
- Increase the difficulties
- Game should be more challenging and fun. Add levels or environment.
- It would be interesting if this installation can provide educational benefits for younger children.
- This is really impressive idea for anew method to solve an interactive event. But the game is okay for only develop idea.
- The idea of the installation is new and interactive. Most of the people do always like to use their mobile to interact with bigger screen. For the game experience, it's fine but very good to use the new tech as the controller. It is a confusing of the hierarchy of the first page design layout.
Base on the Alpha test i get very solid feedback for tester. Most of the tester know about the objective of my project and idea concept interesting level is above average and high. But the game design is on the average level.
Due to my project in focus on the web socket and interaction of user using phone to interact. Game is just a content use to showcase how the technology work. Most of the tester think the game is no difficult enough but only one tester finish the game, which make me question is it still not hard enough. But the graphic and effect will be add in to enhance the full experience.
As for the control still need to improve because by absorbing how the tester play i can see they will try to tilt more to see whether it move faster or not. So i will be enhance on the specific section.
For the sound effect and background music , actually there are sound just that the two installation beside me is too loud so the user can't listen to it.
For the game play and design i will try my best to refine it for the submission but if there are not enough time to finish. i will enhance it during the two month before my degree exhibition. I am really glad that our junior had given me such good feedback and allow my project to improve and see whether i had achieve my objective.
