Smash Time was imagined as a free-to-play arena-based car combat game for mobile platforms. Considering the fact that the core gameplay loop would include a number of game modes and settings, the challenge was to fit everything in without overwhelming the player. Game set-up was thus recreated through a simplified series of steps, with each screen serving a single purpose while adorned in loads of colorful, stylized iconography. The UI includes several patterns that are common to mobile free-to-play titles, such as always-available currency shop, or share menus.
