Starlit On Wheels: Super Kart - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, the 2 founders of Rockhead Studios are in the game industry since 1996. They both worked on the game GUIMO back then, at Rockhead Studios, several apps were created and 2 more games under Starlit IP.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The track editor was a really big challenge! Especially because we’ve made a track that works in any angle and directions and there’s an auto-complete. We use exactly the same track editor to build the story mode.

Rockhead is the company behind Starlit on Wheels, a game acclaimed by millions of players worldwide. Both Apple and Google are featuring it multiple times since its first launch in all continents.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Angry Birds is a breakthrough for us! Both brands have not only made a main classic game, but also a racing game. They have built an IP that expanded from a simple mobile app to a brand selling goods, with a TV-Series and Movies, how can we not love it?

How long have you been working on this app?

Starlit On Wheels took two years to be released and we are still working on it for the last 6 months.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We thought about all the things that could be considered useless for the player experience. We hate the idea of the player pressing something at the screen for longer than it should or with no need. That’s why we didn’t add an accelerator on-screen and focused the gameplay on drifts and boosts. We also wanted to make a game that is not unfair, so every player can show how skillful he or she is.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

As mentioned before, we not only have a go-kart-like game that is not so common on the mobile but we also give to the player a full custom experience, were the player can build its own track and its own car as they please, competing and sharing this experience with friends and competing with people from all around the world!

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Starlit On Wheels is about to get a brand new look. We are about to release the version 2.0 with the final chapter of the Story Mode Season 1, we will introduce a new garage, new look and a new character to this universe.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

I would love that everyone could follow us on Instagram/Facebook @stalitadventures and youtube /starlitadventuresofficial so you can see everything we are doing, not only with our games but also with the universe of Starlit! Feel free to drop a comment, we love to receive messages and pictures of our Friendlits playing our game on their StarlitDay!
