This project has four stages to it. The first is iPhone and the second is iPad. There are two further stages that will follow, and hopefully with the initial programmers. It is also likely that I will want to progress onto Android and even web based and therefore knowledge in this area will really be essential for the future of this project (although not essential for this stage)
This part is about iPhone only, however, it must be clear that a iPad version will follow, as will various updates, and these must not negatively effect the user - ie delete credits etc. Any mention of iPad in this brief is for future reference.
A Non Disclosure Agreement will be required.
It is important that the user experience is perfect, prior to being submitted to iTunes.
I do not have a large understanding of the programming behind this project, and therefore need someone with both the experience to provide design and knowledge and patience to put up with me.
A game that requires HD graphics and moving graphics
This is a game that resembles bingo both graphically and in play. It is however far more simple than bingo. It must have numbers displayed, it must be able to mark numbers off selected tickets. The user must be able to select tickets to play and points (Virtual Currency) will be deducted for each ticket chosen. The app must be able to know when a win sequence has occurred. The app must credit points (Virtual Currency) for each win. The app must also give some free credits (Virtual Currency) each day the app is used.
Graphics - see app “Bingo Star” for an indication of graphic types i want to use, although not as complex. Please note this is not one of my apps.
There is mainly four screens,
Intro - First screen once app selected - Nice Graphics and quick graphic of game being won.
Menu - Five menu options - Play, In App Purchase, How to play, rate game, and Share for facebook and twitter. There will also be a link to another application.
Game - The major part of the application. The user can select up to 16 cards, which can be scrolled on and off the iphone screen (but will display all on iPad) There will be a timer displayed which is an integral part of the game. The app must be able to show and hold credits, randomly select numbers, display that number in a ball and move it across the screen and produce a voice over (pre-recorded), allow the user to select numbers on display, deduct credits for selecting cards to play, recognize a win from the numbers generated against the tickets selected, credit the user for a win, Place a graphic of “win” or “lose” on winning and losing tickets, move the game indicator up levels as the game progresses.
In app purchase options - To buy a selection of credits to use in the games.
There will be a direct link for people to like on facebook
There will be a direct link for people to broadcast score on twitter
The app must work in portrait in iPhone and landscape on iPad
It is expected that the programmer will give a reasonable level of functionality testing prior to submitting to me.
