The client came to us with an old ready-made chess game product. The objective was to rebuild it into a present-date web app that could compete with Chess.com.
Rocketech devs studied the old project's architecture and structure, as well as the protocol and data exchange format. The goal was to liven up the obsolete functionality and ensure safety at where people put their money at stake.
We updated the front-end and the back-end, refreshed the design, and adapted the interface for mobile devices. The work was completed in 3 iterations.
After the back-end updates, we were up to a big scope of redesign work to turn an obsolete app into a breakthrough gaming product. To raise its competitiveness, we've implemented a number of features, such as:
The game's engine was pretty old, so the first thing the team had to do was to improve the app's back-end.
The game already had an active user base, which we didn't want to lose. So, the speed of development was of great importance. We cut time to market through workflow optimization, smart prioritization, and Agile principles. This helped us quickly fix numerous bugs and adjust the old back-end to the modern front-end.
Before introducing Dice Chess to the modern gaming market, we wanted to spice it up with extra functionality.
