Splash Pop: Beat and eat an intelligent mob of characters on mobile
Splash Pop is a game where you have to eat up a mob of tiny creatures equipped with a sophisticated crowd mentality. In an interview, executive producer Félix Larivière and artistic director Claudine Leclerc talk about the challenges of presenting so many characters on a mobile device screen.
Splash Pop is an action and problem-solving game for mobile devices, created by Frima, the highly successful Québec City indie studio. To reach as wide a range of occasional players as possible, the game features a colourful, comical design, with a large enough stock of puzzles to be stimulating but not overly complicated.
The Splash Pop designers took their ideas from scientific research on movement and behaviour of crowds in order to create artificial intelligence in the crowd of creatures that players must conquer.
