Crack Break (iOS and Android)

This is a cute little game from the fine folks at Mad Monkey Militia.  The game is created with the Unity game engine and is based on the "If you step on a crack, you break your mother's back!". I wanted to try my hand at game graphics and animation for the modern age, mobile devices.  I think it was a success.

The ultimate goal for this project was to retain the 8-bit pixelated look of the original version of the game, as this was very important to the designers.

I started off by cleaning up the original Mad Monkey Militia logo and title screen (left) to the finished cleaned up version (right) - The logo (on the right) was completely redrawn in vector form in Adobe Illustrator, so that it became completely portable and flexible.  The original was only available in a pixelated raster version.


The title screen of the game needed some love too.  Again, see the original on the left, and new version with a redone UI on the right and retaining the desired 8-bit look.  Even the Facebook logo got an 8-bit makeover.


The designer, programmer and I wanted to add more elements to the game.  So we decided to add an updated male character, plus a brand new female character.  You now to have the option to play both.

Here are some screenshots of both versions.

Version 1 (Gameplay and Graphics)

Version 2 (Gameplay and Graphics) - I corrected the perspective.  Added a sky, fire hydrant, and even added a banana peel for extra difficulty.


Even the app icon was redone.

Old one

New one

The game is available on the Apple (iOS) and Google Play (Android) app stores.  Keep you eye for version 2!
