During Puzzle Hockey development process N-iX Game & VR Studio resolved the following tasks:
3D modeling. N-iX team created low-poly models of hockey players, stadiums and game map leaning on BlueLine Studios references.
2D art production. Our dedicated artists performed 150+ game-stylized portraits of NHLPA superstars and 20+ team emblems so that gamers could create a hockey team of their dream.
Animation creation. Basing on real footages of hockey matches and training, we created an accurate animation of hockey players for sports mini-games.
Effects creation. Our team paid extra attention to effects creation to make gameplay more eye-pleasing and satisfying.
UI design. Leant on a large amount of experience, N-iX team developed and implemented an intuitive and user-friendly interface that provides a smooth transition between all aspects of the game, from managing a unique hockey team to thrilling sports mini-games.
Game optimization. To make the best use of each mobile device hardware resource our team created a lightened version of unity-based shaders, geometric simplification of objects and texture compression.
Additionally, N-iX Game & VR team was responsible for porting Puzzle Hockey from iOS to Android.
