Example text

56 Consider a short history of difficulty and punishment in video games. Early arcade games were generally based on giving the player three tries to play the game, making it consistently more difficult as the player progressed, and forcing the player at the ‘‘game over’’ alert to start from the beginning (and insert new coins). When video games moved into the home in the late 1970s and early 1980s, they started to become longer affairs, but many retained a structure that forced a player to restart the entire game after running out of lives.

Solitaire illustrates how a game is always perceived against the background of the games that a player has previously tried, and that the main barrier to playing video games has not been computer technology, but game design. Chapter 4 focuses on history in a shorter time span: I examine the success of downloadable casual games and review the history of matching tile games. These often simple games evolve only gradually over time, which puts game developers in the treacherous position of having to differentiate themselves from previous games, while still building sufficiently on well-known game conventions that a game is easily accessible to new players.

But there is something else going on in casual games, something that is not predictable from the description of casual players. The end-of-level sequence of Peggle gives clear feedback to the player that he or she has completed the level, yet this is about more than information: the player already knows that the level is completed, so neither the ‘‘EXTREME FEVER’’ display, nor the extra bonus when the ball exits the bottom of the screen, nor the rainbow, nor the final extra bonus tally provide any new information to the player.
