Action Game Design- Build & Test

Watch the tutorial below on how to use Struckd. Use your Steam account to install Struckd on your computer.

Elements of an Action Game

An action game has these main elements:

Game Testing

People don’t just make games and sell them. You have to have others play your game. 

When you have many elements, have another member play your game.

RULE: You can’t tell them how to play. Do not talk, just observe and write down what you see them have problems with. If they can’t progress after a few minutes, let them go back and fix the game. 

Once you have someone finish the game, ask them a few questions like: what did you think was fun/cool? How can it improve?
