Bratislava - HRAJSA references
Bratislava - Hrajsa

Bratislava HRAJSA is a mobile game for iOS and Android devices. Thanks to Bratislava HRAJSA, the players gets to explore interesting and educational lokations. We created the app directly for the city of Bratislava which wanted to present itself with a new and intrigueing way. The geolocalizing game HRAJSA was created for this purpose.



Technical design

The project includes two parts. Mobile apps that were developed as native solutions and a server side which manages the remote addition of locations into the mobile game itself. The server side of the project is build in Java, Spring, Hibernate and Angular. Hrajsa includes several kinds of games that can be created and customized via the admin interface. Each game can be played without an internet connection after it downloads into a player's device for the first time. For this purpose we needed to create a whole gaming platform for creating games through the server side.
