5. What does your app do? Please describe the best features of your app. – GLTCH is a die-and-retry arcade game for android about intentional glitches where the longer you survive, the more unstable the game becomes! The game crosses the objectives of Snake with the tight movement of Pac-Man to produce a retro-feeling virtual arcade where dozens of glitches like dead pixels, faulty connections and rendering problems make it harder to survive. The player earns experience after every round, which goes towards unlocking new glitches and a different game mode.

8. Where did you get the idea for your app? – Long story short, the idea came from pac-man, level 256. The long story: Every fortnight we come up with a new game idea based on a stimulus and a constraint. The stimulus was Arcade and the constraint was mobile. So while doing research James found some footage of pac-man level 256 (the one where a stack overflow causes the game to glitch out and become almost unplayable for everyone except for expert players. With this idea in mind James pitched a game where the primary obstacles were glitches. So with this idea in mind we began the development of GLTCH, however it went through multiple iterations before it became the game that it is today.
