Working on a small feature for Learn Actors version 6. Until now, in the game if one presses “get hint” button, answer is considered wrong. In next version you will get points for correct amount of letters. So if you were able to guess correctly after seeing first few letters you will get some points. It will make game more fun and bit easier to level up.
As it was said by fictional character Professor Farnswort from Futurama:
“Good news everyone!”, and good they are indeed. New version has been released including feature where you can select actors you have trouble remembering. How it works is that application builds your profile and it knows which actors you have trouble guessing correctly. Now you can select a check box before playing a round to play only those actors that are hard to remember for you.
Sneak peak in version 5. After more user tests it has been decided that there will be new play mode introduced :). Now it will be possible to play a game where only those actors you have hard time remembering are on the list.
New version with leveling progression has been released. I hope it will make game more challenging (:.
There will be level unlock functionality. This will mean that you will start by playing level 1 actors and when you receive proficiency in that level, next level will be unlocked. So stay tuned.
After running user tests, I decided to add a meter that indicates how far from truth is your guess. App uses fuzzy search algorithm to figure out how similar is the entered word to the one trying to guess.
