Game testing is crucial and integral to the success of a game. It analyses whether your product is ready for launch or not. Below are the most important methodologies, specific to games testing.
Various things are checked while testing the functional elements of the game to ensure whether the application is working according to the specifications. It tests menu structure, font size, screen orientation, background, colors, dialogue and confirmation messages, audio elements, etc.
It also validates whether installation goes smoothly, allows social networking choices, and more.
The primary goal of compatibility testing is to check if the game is compatible across different devices and platforms with various versions. The more your game supports various devices, the more you will be able to generate more revenue.
This happens when the QA team “plays the game as a player” and checks for other types of bugs, like usability issues. This will help to verify all the non-functional features like fun factors, difficulty levels, balance, etc. Along with this, they can also estimate the entertainment level of the gaming application.
It is also called conformance testing. It includes IT Marketplace Guidelines Compliance such as Apple App Store Policies, Nintendo Switch Guidelines, and Enterprise Policy Compliance as Prohibited Content or Region-related issues. If there is unpleasant content that is not proper for the requested classification, it will be identified and reported. Otherwise, the game will be rejected and extra costs will be incurred in further testing and re-submission.
In this type of testing, a tester has to explore the game and identify errors based on thinking and imagination ability. Moreover, Agile models follow Exploratory testing as learning, thinking, and investigating processes. This is the type of testing a tester will perform when joining the team to get familiarized with the game.
It is an automation test that involves leaving the game running for a long period in various modes of operation such as idling, paused mode, or at the title screen. Soak tests are included in the compliance requirements.
It is a sometimes mandatory test that can identify the exact cause of major and minor errors by raising bugs in the system by the QA team.
It shows the reaction of an application when many users use it simultaneously. It also entails either a massive group of testers or software that emulates heavy activity. This test accommodates strategies for performance management.
