The mobile application market is one of the biggest markets in technology, with mobile games being one of the most popular sections, worth 20 billion dollars globally. This popularity has caused the game development and design skills to be valuable. Dream Runner was a personal learning experience, an opportunity to develop a mobile game from scratch, while still being an enjoyable game for users. Following the popular model, Dream Runner is an endless game where the player tries to go as far as possible without hitting any obstacles along the way. All of the game assets are original and designed with the theme of dreams and nightmares using 2D vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator. The game was developed on the Corona SDK and simulator using the Lua programming language. Users employed the simulator to extensively test the game to ensure it was enjoyable and functional. After two iterations of user testing and revisions, the app was deployed to the Apple Store, completing the mobile game development but allowing for improvements through updates.
