I’m making an android game where the player need to make decisions quickly. Normally need to choose from maximum of 4 options. To choose at the moment I’m using swipes:
But I would like to have some opinions to make sure I make the right decision here.
At the moment I don’t want to share anything so please just try to imagine it with your phone and tablet in your hands, you need to make decision quickly and the choose you need to swipe left, right, up and down anywhere on the screen but between swipes you need to stop touching the screen.
The reason I decided to go with swipes is because I feel it more comfortable and speed friendly as you don’t need to worry about position of buttons and I decided to need to stop touching the screen between each swipe as you need to have a good (and quick) look on the screen between each swipe so your finger on the screen could be a bit irritating and people would stop touching between swipes anyway. But on the other side, on big tablet screens could be more comfortable to be bale to keep your finger on the screen and just swipe…
So I would like to hear your opinions, if you imagine it, what would you prefer to make decision quickly?
- swipe left, right, up and down with stop touching the screen between each swipe
- swipe left, right, up and down without stop touching the screen
- using buttons (4 buttons) and just simply pressing buttons on the screen
The orientation of the game would be landscape only .
