Tip Top Tim was the brainchild of a former primary school teacher, who wanted to create an educational iOS app for pre-school and early primary school children.
She had already had designs produced and half of the first level complete, but the original programmer had to withdraw due to personal commitments. So we were approached with this small amount complete, and were asked if we could continue and indeed complete the game for her.
The game was quite large. It spanned 10 levels each consisting of six games, doubled in number by two routes of difficulty level. That’s 120 games and various other screens.
First of all we had to create all the additional menu screens, background scenes, interactive elements, text and so forth. Once this was complete we could move on to the coding. This admittedly took a while, but after several months we got it completed and the game approved by the client.
A relatively quick Apple iTunes submission later and the game was live for children to learn from!
