Appturn is a game dev studio from San Francisco
Zany Zombies is a physics-based shooting game for iOS.
Ruthless zombies are trying to disturb the peace of the living. The player beats them back with a magic slingshot and powerful ammo and a little help from friendly ghosts as well.
This game is a complete remake of Slingshot Cowboy hit, which reached #1 spot in the All Games category and #2 spot in the Top Free App category in the US and had about 8M downloads overall. We extended Zany Zombies with new game mechanics, characters, storyline, and new visual style and setting!
At that time the size of a game bundle was quite limited by the App Store. Along with that, we desired to make a game with excellent graphics and animations. Hi-quality graphics required hi-res assets, which took a lot of bundle size, which was limited!
As a result, Appturn got an advanced version of the original hit, with amusing characters and environments, engaging game progression and extended monetization mechanics.
Our engineers integrate their code into a shared repository several times a day, which benefits us with a robust workflow and better quality assurance
TDD leads to more flexible and extensible code and gives the confidence to change the architecture of an application when adding new functionality to address new business requirements
The purpose of unit testing is to validate that each unit of the software performs as designed. It results in a more reliable codebase, smooth integration, and faster development
Automated testing allows us to simplify testing efforts. Once created, automated tests can easily be repeated testing the same areas over and over at no additional cost
Systematic examination of completed work is a part of our workflow that allows us to deliver defect-free software. We keep continuously updating and improving this process
Fewer mistakes are introduced into the code, and more of them are detected earlier rather than in QA Testing or in the production. Also, the software design is better and code length is shorter, and multiple teammates understand each piece of the system
Static code analysis allows our software engineers to examine code without executing it. Meaning, it is used to find potential software quality issues and ensure that the codebase conforms to coding guidelines and industry standards
Coding standards define a programming style. It makes the code easy to understand and provides consistency which leads to saving working hours and making the code easy to both manage and maintain in the longrun
