The process of building and editing levels for Burning Things, our upcoming game for Iphone and iPad, incorporates three steps:
1. Creating level story and theme
2. Illustrating the level sprites (characters, buildings, trees, etc)
3. Building the level using the level editor
We had to create our own level editor to unleash the creative power and transform it into fun and intuitive play for… remember? this game is designed for kids.
This means each level has to be fun for any age between 3 and 10. Sounds challenging? Not too challenging if we can dynamically position any element on the course of the fire truck and scale the difficulty so the far reaches of the level are for the more skillful players, while younger players can enjoy the calmer early stages.
