Compatibility Testing

WHAT IS COMPATIBILITY TESTING?

While Ad-Hoc Testing focuses on the look, feel and ease of use, compatibility testing focuses on determining if the hardware and software display and allow the application to function properly.

Need for Compatibility Testing

You must be absolutely sure that when you release a game, it has to be of high quality and compatible with all operating systems, hardware, software, etc. This can be ensured by testing compatibility. The compatibility test can ensure that errors or bugs are detected before they are delivered to the market. For example, mobile compatibility testing of a game can be performed on multiple devices of different screen sizes, resolution and OS versions.

This test confirms that the game fulfills every requirement from both ends, the development department, and First Party Compliance guidelines. and also increase the reputation of the company/development team.

 

‘It is also true that quality games enhance sales and advertising and appreciated by users.’

Why Do Compatibility Testing?

A badly designed game which does not work with most devices and OS poses a risk to the studios reputation. Your profits and installs will be reduced since this type of game can not be installed by all users. In addition, users wanting to buy/install the game will never again be expected to buy your studios games.

Organizations experiencing compatibility problems too late really have to attempt to resolve the problem once the game has already been published, leading to expensive repairs. Compatibility tests can allow your game to keep a strategic distance from countless entanglements before the game is published.
