  • SINGLE KEY PRESS MOBILE GAME CONCEPT - MONGI TRUBLE
    CASE STUDIES // MOBILE GAME RESEARCH AND DESIGN // MONGI TRUBLE
     
    As my research focused on Casual games for Mobiles, I worked on a simple game that was playable and usable on a low end phone. I picked up a very basic Nokia Series 40 handset and try to come up with a simple game concept.  I wanted to explore Arcade Style Single Key Press Casual Game for a low end handset. I did the complete visual design for this game - branding, Interface Design, Character Design and Game World Design. 
     
    My game idea was called “Mongi Truble”. Mongi Truble is a non- violent, arcade – adventure style one key press casual game set in the backdrop of a tropical rainforest. The games centers on protecting the character from various wild animals and insects of the jungle while collecting food for survival and finding  his pet bird Truble.

  • Game Controls:
    “5”: The Action Key, the magnitude at which Mongi performs an action will depend on how long the playerpresses the key.
    General Movement: The game is a one key press game and the character movement will be automatically controlled by the game. He will move at a certain pace depending on the level and the challenge.
    Bow and Arrow Movement: The bow will be stationary and the arrow will move in semi clockwise and anticlockwise direction simultaneously depending on the direction of the item to be collected. The player has to press 5 to release the bow in the selected direction.
    Jumping: The jumping action is dependent on how long the player presses the “5” key. The longer the key press further he jumps.
     
     
    Character Design
    I worked on character design explorations and designed the game visuals. The following is the process for the character design right from paper sketch to the 8 bit pixel character design.
