Learndirect Scotland were in search of a way to increase their customer engagement and promote their offering to businesses. ”Skillball Challenge” was designed as a way to show the fun to be had while using skill in the workplace.
The game would feature fast-paced, addictive gameplay, tempting players back to try to beat their score and get featured on the high score table.
I worked with a specialised illustrator to design the game interface, and then set about building the project using Flash.
The game required me to build an Actionscript physics engine that would model the tossing and rebounding of the paper balls around the basket. The Flash application also collected player data through a form, using Local Storage to remember players details.
The game was a great success, leaving the client pleased, and seeing great rates of interaction.
