A word on limited animation and game memory

The game was made with memory taken into consideration, due to its need to work on very low end mobile devices. Because of that, most of the animation was approached in a very limited way, trying the best to not compromise the craft as much as possible.

This is an example of one of the symbols win animation done with not too many drawings to keep it light on memory.


Butterfly Cascade Feature Mockup

While playing a butterfly can bother sleeping Squatchie, and provoke him to sneeze, and make the reels to cascade down after the lowest row is "sneezed off".

Reorganize Symbols Feature Mockup

On this feature, Squatchie reorganizes symbols on the reels.

Royal Snack Feature Mockup

Squatchie loves eating royals, and whenever that happens, a new symbol appears to replace that empty space on the reels.

Stomped Wilds Feature Mockup

Squatchie likes stomping on the floor, and this provokes some symbols to drop, and add wild symbols to the reels.
