Types of interface in my gameIt is a web browser based game, which means it can be played onany device that opens a browser such as Internet explorer andsupports html. The difference between my game and a gameplayable on iPhone downloaded from the app store is that it’s smalland doesn’t require downloading any files. You just access thepage and play. Also, my game is text based and does not includeany moving images, just stationary, compared to any java gamesplayed in the Internet browser.Navigation structureIn my game you navigate by clicking the links to the next page, oron touch screen devices by touching the display. The back buttonthat accesses the history is also usable whilst playing.Screen layoutI use the space effectively bymaking it simple and easy on theeye for the player.

Game controllersI chose to use the mouse and touch controller, as it’s the easiestway of the player to navigate. Special equipment and accessorieswould be needed to use the motion or voice controls. I chose themouse controller because it’s very convenient for the player tonavigate through the game.
