The brief

Dave & Buster’s the popular restaurant chain the US, is the ultimate destination for fun, food, friends and games. It has arcade games as one of the pillars of its brand experience. The brief was to truly adapt the games played at the restaurants to the mobile platform and not just replicate them. We looked at various videos of the games played at the Dave & Busters outlets by various users to get an understanding of the actual games and then completely re-designed the experience for the mobile platform.

The solution

The team focused on retaining the core of the essence of the Dave and Buster’s experience where users play games for fun and to earn tickets, which in turn can help users, redeem the tickets for prizes. The client wanted to deliver the message to their consumer of taking the Dave and Buster’s experience beyond the brick and mortar establishment, which through a fine balance of design, art and development, the Robosoft team was able to deliver successfully.

The games

Robosoft designed and developed Tippin’ Bloks and Big Bass Wheel for the iOS and Android platforms.

The games have two game modes - classic and arcade. The classic mode is a digital extension of the actual, physical machine, which players can play at the Dave & Buster’s outlets while the arcade mode is a game mode with cool power ups, which make the gameplay engaging.
