API Development for Treasure Hunt Game App


API Development for Treasure Hunt Game

Keep visitors in your entertainment space by pushing bonus points for them to hunt

About the Client

With a tradition of more than 35 years in the construction and management of shopping centers, the customer is the largest urban regeneration project in Romania and the first entertainment center in central city of the country.

It aims to become the main tourist attraction of the city and the region. To this end, a 2-hectare space has been allocated for leisure, cinema halls 8, 20 restaurants and cafes, and plenty of shops to suit all tastes.

The Need

To increase engagement among visitors in their shopping center, the client ordered an ingenious game app to prompt shoppers visit stores with a user-friendly and dynamic experience.

This in turn asked for a powerful API for the application to identify in real time all users connected to access points in the site and push bonus points for them to “hunt” in the 200 shops and entertainment locations on the mall.

The Solution

To respond to the requirements, Ropardo developed several components of the solution:

Treasure Hunt Mobile Application

Using API Manager, Ropardo team developed the powerful API. The API Manager is a complete solution for designing, implementing and managing APIs. With a firm mastering of the API Publisher, our team  provides a rich set of capabilities as follows: 

Plan and design a good RESTful API

Deploy and test as a prototyped API (fast integration with Front End Application Development process)

Publish and expose as a managed RESTful API

Treasure is the mobile application our team developed for the client. Using VR (Virtual Reality), players can find different “treasures” hidden inside the shopping mall, accumulating discount points or happy-hour offers. 

For the purpose of easiness of use, our team also developed a web application that is used to administrate the mobile application and the content.

21,000 shoppers had been hunting treasures in Coresi Mall every day long before people went after Pokemons.

Agile Development Process

Ropardo API-driven development process was run by our teams by using a combination of API service mocking and test automation to deliver powerful APIs.

Using API Management platform, ROPARDO delivered fast results, starting from Proposal of the API to Release.
