Introducing about Crossy Road
A few years ago, Matt Hall, the 39-year-old co-creator of the enormously successful Crossy Road, was a struggling, unprofitable video games developer living on an Australian sheep farm owned by his parents, chasing a dream of success that had come true for some friends but eluded him. He’d formed a studio, named KlickTock, which he called a “one-man-band game development company dedicated to making games for everyone.” It led to titles with names like Little Things, Doodle Find, Super Search 60 and Zonr. Before that, he worked at Big Ant Studios and Tantalus Interactive, both names in the Australian development scene. After going indie, Hall put three titles atop the charts of the iTunes app store. Still, he says, there were “a lot of years where I earned absolutely nothing.” And in his most difficult times, he and his wife had a daughter, while living on his parents’ farm in far Western Victoria.
All of these thoughts and experiments were academic until Crossy Road was released and became popular beyond Hall’s wildest expectations. Yes, he designed it to be popular. He didn’t realize how popular it would be. Yes, he figured he’d make some money. He had no sense of how much money it would make. He thinks he and Sum underestimated how much players’ love for a game can help it.
Catch is one of the best Puzzle Game
You have to catch all colored stars spread across many levels. To play, link all the stars of the same color with your finger.In each puzzle a path appears when you connect the stars of the same color. The paths must not be crossed, except if you use a bridge. With two stars (level 1) the game is easy. But, it becomes harder when the number of stars increases. The game becomes really challenging when the levels include more than 20 stars in 6 different colors.Catch has 160 levels. The 40 first levels can be played for free. For more different levels you can buy two level packs: the Master Pack that contains 60 hard levels, and the Elite Pack that contains 60 very difficult levels. Catch has a colorblind mode.The game tile indicates your progress. When you first launch it, the game asks you to pin it to your start screen.
“If you make a game that’s only about business, you’re going to get Candy Crush clones,” he says. To make art, you need to do some mixing. If they made money, then so much the better. And that could fuel subsequent games.
Thanks to Crossy Road’s success, Hall is living comfortably, if mindful to avoid the kind mistakes that squander an overnight fortune overnight. He’s back at GDC — where people now recognize him. And he’s got a story to tell about success.
That’s what gives Crossy Road its character. Nobody has to pay a dime to play. Any character they want to use still can be be earned quickly. Everyone has the option of buying a favorite character piecemeal, but it’s not a requirement, and the in-game store doesn’t intrude with reminders that money must be spent.
Unlike many of its contemporaries, nothing about Crossy Road makes a player feel the need to pay to progress or win. Its design subdues its monetization, and that has cost its developers revenue. Crossy Road rarely — if ever — squeezes onto the top of the iOS App Store’s list of highest grossing games, where titles like Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga are entrenched. Yet yesterday, Crossy Road was the 12th most popular free iPhone app without even appearing in the App Store’s list of top 100 grossing iPhone apps
