Ironhide Game Studio based in Montevideo, Uruguay is the creator of the hit iOS and Flash game Kingdom Rush. With over 50 million plays to date, Ironhide chose Playtomic to better understand their players.
Here's what Alvaro Azofra, their co-founder had to say:
In Kingdom Rush, the developer team used Playtomic to detect where player drop offs occur in each enemy wave. With this information, the team was able to smoothen the difficulty curve. Now, most players could reach the interesting parts of the game, instead of being frustrated in early levels.
A great tutorial makes a great game. The developer team for Kingdom Rush tracked how far along their players progress through the tutorial screens, and adjusted the content to produce minimum cancel rates.
Kingdom Rush utilizes Playtomic to track custom events, to see what players liked the most: from unit upgrades to buildings. The developer team found that players tended to overuse barracks. To solve this phenomenon, they placed a strategy tip on stage 2, to help educate players that barracks should be supported by towers.
