Old to new comparison
Identifying Areas of Improvement
A great way to get familiarized with an already existing project is to deconstruct it's elements. From here I was able to analyze what worked well for the game and what were key opportunities to make it better.
Overwhelming Main Menu
Elements seemingly get lost such as the shop
Lack of a central focal point to guide the player's attention
Unconventional placements of UI elements such as the settings in the top left.
Art and logo lack a consistent theme and feels dull.
Confusing CTA Logic (One button includes a fill while others do not.
Uninspiring Game board
Booster icons could benefit from improved art that provides more character and excitement
UI elements do not compliment with the background image
Adding New Art
