Hi Iam the lead programmer at krehol games . We are a small team and look to do the kind of games you can pick up and play instantly . I need feedback on the types of games that make you addicted quickly . This is a video of Krehol Games Momo Alien Starcatcher game. Itunes link http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http...mt%3D8&h=ffacb

1) Depends on the game. Either explosive, fun and exciting or relaxing, inspiring and well presented. Edge/Tilt to Live trailer and Let's Create Pottery trailer comes to mind respectively.

2) Cartoony, but with a uniques tyle definitely works. Check out Helsings Fire. Cut the Rope is an example of the cheeky mood that attracts players in games. However, you need to create your own style. DOn't just copy the ones I have mentioned. Depending on the sort of game, but cartoony generally works better.

3) Great concept, addicting gameplay, innovative, unique graphics, polished.

4) The first video doesn't interest me AT ALL. The game looks boring and something that has already been seen and done before. The second video seems better. There are more things going on and intrigues me a bit more. But it still wouldn't encourage me to go buy the game.

I hope this helps.

1) Funny trailers or trailers that show the game at its highest points. Really depends on game type. If you tell me about type of game, I can give you a picture.

2) Serious graphics cause I have an ipt4

3) SCREENSHOTS AND ICON

4) As other guys said trailer isn;t going to make me buy game.

Some trailer I like:
- Corporate Fury
- Monster Dash

1) Ones like..."From the developers of..." BOOOM "Comes there next big hit" BOOM.
2)I prefer Serious Games.
3)Lots of Possibilities', Game Center and Good Reviews
4)
A) Bad: No information on what the score means, Tooo much happening at once and just looks too retro.
B) Bad: Again, too retro and too much going on but it's a bit more better graphics wise compared with the first.

Sincerely,
Oliver Cooksey

1: Trailers or gameplay vids that show what i want to see. Keep it short, get the action plus the "coolness".

2: I like "serious" and cartoony. For casual games, cartoony is more expected.

3: It's gotta be fun of course and have something unique about it. Humor, Graphics, intuitive controls, replay ability/value, Content. And lots more which i can't think up at the moment.

4: make a trailer, (the headlines whatever their called) show the gameplay, maybe the tutorial/help screen.

good feedback

This is good I see some mistakes I made in presentation. I should have described the power-ups and features of the game better. The game is fast pace , so probaly people dont understand whats going on. The game is original however , it doesnt clone off of anyone. Ok if anyone has more to add to help me out , I would apprieciate it.

If you are going to use these two videos as your teaser/trailers then it is bad. A trailer doesn't consist of you playing it from a bad angle, with the screen too dark.

This could be a demonstration for the gameplay, but you need another to introduce the game. You should have game full screen so it is clear. Don't try and capture it with your camera.

You can actually do pretty good trailers that show your hands, I think Firemint did it with Real Racing... the key is to have a completely white background rather than a dark one.

Yeah, found it:
