Game Testing

‘Game tester’ is typically an entry-level job in the games industry. It sounds great – playing games all day, but the fault logging and repetition can be soul destroying.

Here is an opportunity to get involved in some testing. I’m making a game which involves destroying a castle with a catapult. The upper level of the castle must be destroyed (lower level can’t be destroyed). A minimum of 12 hits is required to destroy the castle which is in 3 sections, left tower, mid section and right tower.

I already tested an earlier protoype with some of my students. They fed back via Facebook.

Game testing feedback

I’d appreciate any comments on the game on each of the following topics.

  1. bugs & things that don’t seem to work
  2. graphics and sound – are they appropriate, what would make them better?
  3. game features – what else could be in the game?


Please try the catapult game here, and leave any comments below.
