Total Destruction - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I had been studying IT for nearly a year but it was the first project of this scale.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Performance on mobile devices has been a great challenge. It’s a sad moment when you have to reduce the amount of particles in effects. Building destruction physics could also be a lot better if performance wasn’t an issue.

Kristjan Perli is a full-time Back End Developer at Pipedrive. Kristjan is also a co-founder of Morsakabi, where he develops mobile games in his free time when he isn’t at the gym.

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

Grow Castle has been a game that I haven’t managed to quit yet. There is always a difficult goal ahead and multiple smaller goals so that I don’t give up.
Earn to Die is one that has simple progression and a gameplay that I really enjoy. It looks somewhat like Total Destruction.

How long have you been working on this app?

Total Destruction was released in 2014 after 3-4 months of work. Even though it has always been developed in my free time as a side project, the game has received lots of updates years after release.

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

Relieving stress and wanting to see weapon systems in action without any casualties. Seeing the world burn and not having any consequences.

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.

I haven’t encountered a similar game yet, so in my opinion, pairing a destructible environment together with an interesting set of vehicles and weapon systems is the innovation. I have always liked seeing explosions so I wanted to implement them in the game and also have them interact with the world - especially nuclear explosions.

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

There will be smaller bug fixes and a few more new vehicles in upcoming patches but the main goal is to release a sequel someday.

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.)?

We could definitely use all the suggestions and feedback so these can be sent to [email protected]. Sharing the game makes us happy!
