Our Process of iOS Game Creation

Requirements Analysis

Our team sets up the groundwork, discusses your concept art/gameplay mechanics/other ideas, and consults you on what solutions can be best for your iOS game. Then we share our insights into the market and elaborate on the project milestones.

Market Research

After our initial interview and your approval, we conduct market research as well as the discovery phase (if needed) to make the development process based on objective information. Then we choose a suitable project execution vector.

Game Design

Throughout this phase, our developers and game designers elaborate on a game design document (GDD), while artists produce concept art that will further serve as a reference for 2D/3D assets (based on a genre or style).

Game Development

Programmers and designers at our iOS game development company write scripts, create game objects, set up the environment, and produce animations. When everything seems integral, Game-Ace uploads all assets into the engine.

QA and Testing

As soon as your iOS game is functional and playable, it is time to engage quality assurance specialists who will run a wide range of various tests to remove all the bugs, glitches, as well as other issues your players may face.

Final Game Submission

When your product is developed and tested, you review it, discussing your impressions with our team. Depending on our preliminary agreement, we can either release the already finished iOS game for you or help you do it on your own.

It is no secret that iOS games are gaining momentum, with more and more Apple devices winning the international market competition. With Game-Ace, you can increase your brand awareness and boost business performance thanks to our iOS game development services.

According to Statista, Android devices occupy 71% of the global mobile gaming market, while iOS ones — only 28%. So what's the point of making iOS games instead of Android? But herein lies the catch. Although Android-based smartphones have a far larger mobile market share, the App Store generates more revenue thanks to regular player subscriptions, premium applications, as well as various in-game purchases. Therefore, it's $32.8bn vs. $17.3bn by Google Play.

So, let's sum up, what are the benefits of creating an iOS game?

  1. More straightforward development. Since you don't have so many target devices to consider in terms of adapting your game's HUD to screen sizes and versions, the developers on your team will spend less time optimizing the product.

  2. More revenue generated. As already mentioned, the App Store, where your future iOS game will be published, has the potential to generate far more income than Google Play, meaning you can earn much more than you've expected.

  3. Lower entry threshold & broad talent pool. iOS game development can be simpler due to the Swift programming language and the Xcode IDE, which gradually leads to a high number of iOS game developers on the recruitment market, so you won't have to worry about specialists on your team.

Even though you can make your iOS game using exclusively in-house resources, what if we tell you that there’s another, more optimal way to do it right? Chances are you’ve already guessed. You can use outstaffing or outsourcing services that our iOS game development company offers. Throughout the previous 17 years of professional operation, our team has finalized hundreds of gaming projects of various directions, styles, genres, and scales. Many of them were iOS games.

Relying on our iOS game development services, you get the following:

  • Transparent communication. Taking advantage of our experience brings you regular correspondence, during which we share insights and updates regarding your iOS game project so that you are always up to date.

  • Quality of work. Our iOS game developers know the ropes and are able to guarantee the result you expect from your project. Without our specialists on your board, you can climb up any height in the industry.

  • Timely delivery. Since we treasure your time and pay attention to each aspect of your future game, our developers dedicate themselves to making the project one of a kind.

  • Cost-efficient development.It’s no secret that outsourcing iOS game development proves cheaper in the long run since you don’t have to pay the total price for the workforce, hardware, and software.

  • Research-based & client-oriented approach. Game-Ace cares for its reputation, so any time you entrust your project to us, we conduct research meant to shed more light on your future iOS game. Our custom-tailored iOS game development services enable you to receive a premium-quality product that entirely responds to your audience’s expectations.

Like in most cases, the Game-Ace studio follows a similar path, from pre-production to release. Let’s talk about these phases in more detail.

  1. Pre-production. In this initial stage, our business analysts and game designers carry out a discovery phase, review competitors, and discuss the genre, style, tech stack, as well as other constituents of the future iOS game. Analyzing the market, brainstorming ideas, elaborating on project documentation, and gathering requirements usually end up with concept art along with a development plan to follow throughout each product life cycle.

  2. Production. As the most responsible stage, production involves actively preparing 2D/3D game assets, audio design, writing scripts and integrating all the iOS game elements into a preferred game engine like Unity or Unreal. From rough sketches and basic mechanics, the game now becomes more holistic. Our iOS game developers create the system’s architecture, design levels, animate characters/environments, write the backstory, and code the core gameplay mechanics.

  3. Post-production. During the final stage, our QA specialists execute a broad spectrum of multifaceted test types in order to make sure that your iOS game is free of critical bugs and has all the essential features. After the release, we can support the product with regular updates and improvements based on feedback from players. Everything depends on the agreement and cooperation we choose.

Without a doubt, each stage can be tailored to your needs and project requirements, inasmuch as we prioritize interpersonal communication and adherence to partnership standards.

Various factors affect the time frame required to finalize and deploy an iOS game. In general, these aspects include:

  • Project scope & difficulty. As obvious as it may seem, the more difficult and large the project, the more time our iOS game development team needs to create the app.

  • Team composition. Another point to consider is team composition. In other words, you should carefully build your team. It must at least include a business analyst, a project manager, iOS developers, 2D/3D artists, and a game designer.

  • Allocated budget. With more financial resources distributed for your iOS game project, the more straightforward and faster the development due to a number of reasons.

Beyond question, there are multiple other factors that may influence your app development process. At any rate, this question can be more or less accurately answered only throughout the interpersonal online interview, so don’t hesitate to contact us and discuss anything you are interested in. Nevertheless, on average, a basic casual iOS game can be created within a couple of months, whereas more complex projects may take 6+ months.

If you want a more precise estimation, we have to calculate various aspects of your future iOS game project during a vis-a-vis online discussion. Prior to initiating it, you can ponder over concept art, core gameplay mechanics, target audience, estimated budget, as well as other crucial factors that are likely to affect the final project deadline.

Building a team of capable iOS game developers can sometimes become a challenging task requiring patience, perseverance, and luck, let alone the steel will of recruiters. For business owners, it’s more beneficial to use outstaffing services. With our assistance, you can quickly extend your in-house team of iOS game developers with our experienced specialists. Of course, it’s the best approach to ensuring that your iOS game project is safe and sound.

Still, if you’d like to learn more about the best way to hire iOS game developers, consider double-checking the following points in your recruitment plan:

  • Programming language. Make sure the iOS game developers you hire are familiar with either Objective-C or Swift, which are the primary coding technologies used for creating iOS applications.

  • Familiarity with Xcode. The perfect knowledge of the iOS IDE Xcode is a must for game development teams intending to create products for Apple devices like the iPhone or iPad.

  • Soft & hard skills. Aside from extensive iOS game development experience, your candidates should master some basic soft skills, including communication, empathy, self-discipline, engagement, and the rest.

  • Ability to solve uncommon issues. Effectively responding to unexpected challenges is an extremely helpful skill for iOS game developers because the development process is often accompanied by both technical and creative issues that pop up when you aren’t at all ready to defy them.

One of the most evident reasons to opt for mobile game development and not choose PC, console, or other platforms is that the mobile gaming market continually grows as more and more people buy smartphones worldwide. According to statistics, smartphone-based games dominate about 60% of the global gaming market, which is a huge deal and an excellent argument to start creating your own mobile game. For more info, you can contact us and get a quality consultation.

The international gaming audience is increasingly becoming dependent on portable devices as the world is rapidly changing. Players no longer want to sit at home by their desks and be glued to a single place where they can enjoy video games. The release and regular updates of portable consoles like Steam Deck prove this. That’s why you may want to consider developing your iOS game in order to supply the demand of the global audience.

Since the iOS platform is pretty widespread and has an excellent level of support, developing video games for it is more straightforward. With more than 1bn active iOS devices scattered around each corner of the world, you can be confident that your future product will be downloaded and played by a broad audience. In addition, the App Store is a great place to store your apps, with top-notch cybersecurity standards, a user-friendly interface, and excellent software support.
