Advent Calendar iOS app

Advent 2013 was a hit of the advent calendar app series by MagicSolver. Over 25 days the user interacts with the calendar opening doors and playing mini games. Each day a free application is given away from one of our partner developers.

Main Objective

Deliver users a fun experience each day whilst promoting the free application. Maintaining user retention is key to project success, which is why an extensive experience is required. Three key stages help deliver and retain volumes of users.

1. Main Scene

• Users navigate through a winter scene and tap numbers to open doors.
• The journey is accompanied by interactions and animations.
