Animation logic

Objects are scattered on the board. As they move across the board, objects run away to the sides from the moving character. After a while, they return to the board again.

Template configuration

You need:

  • one graphic for the background
  • one or more graphics for fleeing objects

You can set:

  • parameters for objects

    • number of objects
    • size of objects
  • effects for objects:

    • rotation
    • shadows under objects
  • background music

  • additional screens

Advanced application operation parameters

Advanced settings available in the template:

  • interval - the time between the object's reaction to interactions and the return of the object to its original position.
At the same time, remember about hardware performance - enabling shadow generation with a large number of objects requires more computing power for the interactive effect to run smoothly.

Additional screens available in the template

Within the Scatter template, you can add instruction, intro and start screen. You can use your own dedicated graphics for each screen and set parameters for texts, colours and backgrounds.

Details of screen editing can be found in the chapter Screens configuration.

Ideas for using the Scatter template

When looking for app ideas, think about things that:

  • they naturally run, hide, or move away from a moving person,
  • may be obscured or covered.

Fun and Education - Replace the default objects in the template with nature graphics and encourage children to play actively in discovering and searching for objects on the board.

Events and Entertainment - Replace the default background in the template with a graphic with the slogan of your event. As objects, use graphics of elements related to the event.

Promotion and Advertising - Replace the default objects in the template with your brand logo. Use a background with your corporate identity.
