How to... complete tasks! - Using the PlaytestCloud: Be a Playtester app on iOS

You may sometimes get a playtest that has special tasks. These are displayed differently depending on whether you are using the PlaytestCloud: Be a Playtester app with Android or iOS.

Note: This article is for when you are using the app on iOS. If you are using it on Android and need advice about tasks, check out this article

Here's how a playtest with tasks on the Be a Playtester app works! Check out our video on the topic here!

Your playtest invite will let you know if our app is required to record your gameplay. It will also prompt you to install it on your device if you need it. 

Once you have the app installed, you will see the playtest listed. When you click on it you will see the tasks.

The tasks will only be featured in the app, not in the game itself. You will be able to read through what is required from you before you go into the game. The tasks will not be accessible while you are playing, so testers will need to leave the game in order to go back to the list. 

Here is an example of a task list in the app:

As you can see, there is also a button which will allow you to switch to the playtest. 

The tasks need to be completed in order, so you only need to remember one at a time! When you have completed a task, swap back to the PlaytestCloud: Be a Playtester app and then check off the task by tapping on the box next to it. You can then take note of the next task and return to the game.

Important: Please do not check them all off at once, or write them down. You will need to return to the app to check them off one-by-one, when they are completed. 

Problems with a task?

If you have any problems with a task, try to do your best to complete it and talk us through what you're finding difficult. If you find that it is impossible, move on with the playtest as long as that task didn't affect your course through the game. Once you've completed the test, let us know so that we have a heads up about your issue. We will then be able to take this into account when it comes to your reward payment.
