The time has almost come for us to release our precious Rollabear into the big wide world. But before we can do that, testing must be done! Here’s what happened when we let our newest member of staff Jodie have a go…
1. I guess the first question I should ask is, ‘Do you play mobile games?’ Can you name an example or two?
Yeah, when I get the chance anyway! I have really cutesy games on my phone at the moment. My favourite is called Kumo Lumo, you’re basically a happy little cloud that floats through the sky and rains on all the bad guys. The voice of the cloud is really funny. I don’t feel as though I’ve represented female gamers particularly well here…
2. So how long have you had your perfectly manicured fingers on Rollabear (the app!)?
Well Jeff let me loose on Rollabear a few weeks ago on his iPad, and for about a week after I had serious withdrawal symptoms and so I nagged, quite a lot… Now I have it on my phone! So I’ve been ‘testing’ it for a few weeks now.
3. Playing your first level; How did it go?
It was pretty intense as I had Jeff over my shoulder watching my every roll. But once I knocked that first set of pins down there was no going back!
4. Was the tutorial clear enough?
The tutorial really helped me get to grips with things. Sometimes I need that bit of reassurance, and I feel it did the trick!
5. How far did you progress? Did you ever get completely stuck?
I got pretty far the first time I played on it; I’ve since re-started it on my phone. There were a couple of levels where I thought it could be the end, but I wouldn’t let those pesky pins defeat me!
6. What do you think about the in-game design/graphics?
Like I said at the start, I’m into games that look nice. Rollabear was the perfect mixture of cute and quirky for me. I like the strange things you see dotted around the levels and the funny signs. It’s a case of blink and you’ll miss it with those things but I like the fact so much effort has been put in to even the smallest details.
7. What do you like best about Rollabear?
The best thing for me is probably the bears. I still can’t pick a favourite but I love unlocking new ones and being able to choose a different bear for each level!
