The project looks at extensions of an existing game to focus on benefiting the user and the game developers: the overall performance of the game, retention rate of the player base, revenue generation, and player engagement. Developing various mini game boards, leaderboards, player profiles and fine-tuning back end game balancing logics made this project contribute meaningfully to the existing setup, by making the gameplay feel more complete and creating several avenues for revenue generation.
