A handy guide to adding scoring effects to your games.
"When it comes to games (and apps in general really), I’m a big believer that making your game just that little bit more juicy can make the overall quality and enjoyability of your game increase drastically.
Juicy is clearly a pretty vague term, but I think it’s pretty fitting (think biting into a juicy orange filled with flavour). In the context of a game this would mean adding things like:
- When the player collides with something or kills an enemy, add some particle effects
- If the player is running fast have their hair or cape blow in the wind
- Create tweens and animations for things
- Add sound effects
To give you an example, in a game I’m working on right now I’ve created a more interesting scoreboard by adding some animations."
