Spotting Gaps and Prospects in the Market

A game industry consultant and software engineer from San Jose had an idea to revolutionize the word game market. At that time, a Statista report projected a significant increase in word game downloads for 2020 – up to 8 million on the App Store and 17 million on Google Play. This trend indicated a promising opportunity in this niche.

The client's initial research identified several gaps in convenience and features inexisting games. Linkup Studio team's goal was to develop a robust mobile game app with a smooth and engaging interface that appeals to a wide range of players, addressing all potential user scenarios.

Elevating the Word Game Experience

Our efforts were focused on enriching the Word Links app experience, addressing the needs of a diverse user base. We implemented numerous features and functionalities to make the game more enjoyable and user-friendly:

  • Multiple Game Play Capability: Recognizing the diverse preferences of our users, we enabled the ability to play several games simultaneously. This feature caters to users who enjoy multitasking or engaging in multiple word challenges at once.
  • Public Game Options: We introduced public game functionality, allowing users to join games that are open to all app users. This feature enhances the social aspect of the game, enabling players to connect with a broader community.
  • Social Media Sharing: To increase the app’s visibility and user engagement, we incorporated features for sharing game achievements and experiences on various social media platforms. This functionality allows users to showcase their successes and invite friends to join the game.
  • Engaging Push Notifications: We implemented push notifications not only to keep users informed about game updates and new challenges but also to make them funny and engaging. These notifications are designed to entertain users while encouraging regular app usage.
  • Development of In-App Purchase Functionality for Enhanced Game Experience: We developed integrations with a popular payment system to facilitate subscription plans. Subscribers gain access to advanced features and abilities, significantly enhancing their gameplay experience.

Each component was carefully designed to create a seamless and engaging experience for both casual and dedicated players of Word Links, enhancing the overall appeal and functionality of the app.

Typography and color palette

We were lucky to choose Linkup as our first developer. Delivered apps fulfilled the original vision, launched successfully, and organically attracted a dedicated user base. Language and time zones presented small issues, but Linkup's collaborative, committed team dynamic made up the difference. They behaved as a partner rather than a contractor.
