Requirements

When you have a deal with Spil Games for integrating a Flash game you will receive an Game ID from your contact person in our licensing team, your Game Producer. You will need this ID in order to initialize the API properly and be able to fully integrate your game, thus make sure you have your ID before starting.

When you are done you will send the build of your game to the Game Producer and she/he will submit it for QA. In order to pass QA your game needs to fulfill a certain list of requirements. Please make sure that your game meets our requirements!

The requirements are separated into 4 groups:

Branding/API

There are some features of the API that are mandatory to everyone and some other depending on your game and the type of deal that you have with Spil Games. Please advice the table or contact your Spil Game Producer in order to see what applies to your situation.

Feature Explenation

Logo

A branding logo is a small image which to be included in various game screens. Typically a branding logo appears in a game menu. It reminds the user where he can play the game. Also it complements to the cross-promotion strategies. The overall effect is that games, including yours, will be played more often. Below you can see an example of branding applied in the menu of the game Snail Bob.

Promotional Buttons

The Promotional Buttons are clickable buttons that can link to

  • a Spil site (more games button)
  • a game of the same series

Using the Flash API cross promo buttons images and links can be retrieved. Please contact you account manager to setup cross promo buttons before implementation.
