Project Description

Dear iOs / Android developers,

We are looking for an application that accesses information within the phone book and uses the first names of the present entries to create some sort of a word quiz. The look of the game should be similar to Scrabble / WordSearch although the gameplay, as mentioned below, follows a different logic. (See the simple example in the [url removed, login to view])
The names will be allocated in a matrix and can be organized horizontally as well as vertically and in a diagonal manner. All the names should be presented in the matrix in reading direction (from left to right and from top to bottom). In every game there should be a strict number of names to be guessed (e.g. 10). The number does not change when starting a new game.
Within the game users have to find the names of people within their phone book by clicking the first and last letter of the first name. The first letter needs to be clicked first and the last letter secondly. In case a user clicks on the wrong letter points get deducted. In case the right choice is made points get added to a score displayed in the top right of the screen. If the word is chosen correctly, it is crossed out with a medium width red line.
The matrix should fill the entire phone screen and the size of the single boxes should be still be easy to read and comfortable to click with your fingers. Empty cells should be filled with randomized letters of Latin alphabet (e.g. A,B,C,D,E,F,G...).

The game needs a start screen including the following options:
• Name of the game – FIND-A-FRIEND
• Instructions: Here you find some text that briefly explains how the game works. We will provide this text.
• Start Game: This starts the game itself.
• Continue Game: This allows the user to continue previously unfinished game.

During the game:
• Pause button: after pressing the button you will have the following options
o Resume: Move back to the current game
o Restart: Restarts the game using new name entries from phone book that are arranged in a different manner
o Quit: Move back to start screen where you can choose between Instructions and Start Game. The game is “on hold” so you can continue it later on with the “Continue Game” function.

Fancy sound effects and graphical animations (letters shine and blister when selected and so on) of any kind are highly welcome!

The application has to be compatible with mobile devices which run on either iOs or Android.
Further specifications can be provided on request.

Potential candidates will be selected based on the time required to complete the product and the price.
