CP Limited has been designing mobile games for different genres but did not have experience in developing poker type games. They had come up with a really innovative game idea called Pokkerable that merges the game plays of a Poker game and a Scrabble game. The challenge for CP was finding a developer who was versed in game design and also understood the unique concepts behind the two age long games in order to merge them together under the new game play idea they had. Social Cubix was up for the challenge as it has repeatedly done with new gameplay ideas for other clients.
From design concepting to deeply familiarizing ourselves with the different game plays, Social Cubix played the game before it was built through simulations and scenario reviews. Working with CP, Social Cubix mapped out a user experience and flow that will not confuse users upon initial play and make the game sticky. The Pokerrable game offers users a great combination of strategy and luck while making any three types of poker sets – 2 card sets, 3 card sets and normal 5 cards sets. Special bonus tiles on the board gives the players more options to use with the game strategies. By placing poker card on tiles, strategizing and relying on luck, the game presents a new and addictive way to enjoy poker games. One of the unique things about Pokerrable is that it allows users to play with 6 different types of players including Facebook friends, proximity friends, computer etc for up to 20 players at the same time.
Pokerrable was an immediate hit with critics raving about it’s ingenuity and implementation. Thousands of users rushed to download the application with a rating of 5 out of 5 on the appstore with those that rated the application. Users that downloaded the application who were reached and interviewed say the game is refreshing because of it’s intuitiveness even though it is a different game play than they have been used to.
