You see ratings and reviews for games and apps all the time. What goes into those ratings that you see in stores? How accurate are they? How can developers help their ratings? These are a few of the issues that we will address in this lesson.
Now that we have discussed how important ratings are and how they are created, we are going going to create our own ratings for the games that you and your peers have created. Essentially you'll be a beta tester for the game. You see, when games are made they're often labeled alpha, beta etc. Typically alpha testing is done in house and never leaves the developer. Beta versions are often released to a select number of the general public. with the intention of collecting feedback from users and bug reports. Each of you will play the games that your classmates have made. After playing the game you will report back to the developer with a rating (5 out of 5) and comments for likes and dislikes. Keep in mind that this is meant to be healthy, constructive feedback to help the creation of the game. You're not here to troll your classmates! Here you will find the feedback form.
