With over 20 years of experience, we apply effective testing solutions to provide stellar quality of the following software:
We ensure correct operation of games for consoles, personal computers, mobile devices, or web browsers, accounting for different hardware and software configurations. We also keep minimum and recommended game requirements for OS, CPU, RAM, and GPU while selecting devices for compatibility testing.
We help games appeal to a global audience by reviewing localized scripts, voice-overs, subtitles, and other text elements for any issues. We also verify local nuances, such as symbols, currencies, date and time formatting.
We fulfill both server- and client-side performance testing and focus on metrics such as CPU and memory utilization, latency, response time, and concurrent user sessions. We help to eliminate game freezes and ensure the game is fast, stable, and can handle sudden load increases.
We apply smoke, exploratory, acceptance, and other functional testing types to validate that games run correctly and features operate under set specifications. During testing, we check the entire gaming flow, from registration to in-game purchases, and identify functionality, graphics, and game integrity issues.
We detect defects in the installation process of diverse games, verifying that players have a smooth first interaction with the software, which is vital for a positive player experience.
We help game developers meet marketplace guidelines and regulatory standards, including PEGI, ESRB, and FTC, ensuring smooth game submissions and avoiding legal complications.
We confirm that any code changes such as patches for fixing problems, major updates for adding new features, or separately installed components haven’t caused software defects or system crashes.
We assess the graphical interface, confirm that game logic is intuitive and simple, and check the software is simple to master, thus enhancing player retention from the first use.
We choose the scope for automation, introduce automated QA workflows, integrate them into CI/CD pipelines, and help maintain current or a newly set up test automation solution. We reduce testing cycle time, enlarge test coverage, and optimize operational expenditure.
We use penetration testing and static code analysis, evaluate software security, and offer detailed improvement recommendations to fortify games against potential threats, identify vulnerabilities, and protect players’ financial and personal data.
Noteworthy is a1qa’s proactive approach, streamlined communication, and input into introducing improvements — each time any process or novel practice could have been enhanced, the engineers made every effort to commit to the process. Being an integral part of our team, they smoothly did their job helping us reach our business goals.
We wanted to push the envelope and ensure lightning-fast software operation under 10,000 concurrently working website visitors.
After looking at various partners to assist us in this project we felt that a1qa were the best choice after a pilot run, the outcomes of which exceeded our expectations.
While preparing to release new features within a short timeframe, we were looking for an experienced QA vendor able to briskly provide high-qualified software testing experts to support us and help reach our business goals. a1qa turned out to be a good match for our needs.
Limited internal resources can hinder the effective testing of game mechanics with large player counts. Leveraging external support helps verify the entire game functionality in the multiplayer mode, check server ability to withstand high loads, confirm correct software operation over local area networks or the Internet.
Monetization hiccups due to payment issues can lead to lost profits and player drop-offs. Detailed testing of payment gateways and checking all the payment methods available in the game is vital for streamlining application monetization.
A lack of software testing processes leads to unmet quality gates, deadline delays, or budget overruns. Independent QA providers can advance testing methodologies and pinpoint process enhancements to prevent overspending and production-phase software issues.
In-house QA teams can be costly, especially with fluctuating workloads. Independent QA services offer economical solutions, allowing better allocation of QA engineers.
Faulty interactions between games or betting products and third-party systems can disrupt data flow and introduce bugs. Integration testing expertise is key to resolving such challenges.
Failure to adopt test automation and gather timely user feedback can extend testing cycles and overshoot budgets. External QA automation experts can streamline QA processes and maintain existing test automation solutions.
Failure to quickly scale testing processes to deliver top-tier operation during a massive influx of users can cause unplanned software downtimes. Proficient QA vendors can swiftly assign specialists to prepare gaming products for peak loads.
We provide full-cycle QA services to support game quality at any SDLC stage and ensure the released software operates as expected.
We run 10+ CoEs and R&Ds and develop in-house testing solutions to elevate QA efficiency.
We offer different cooperation opportunities — advisory and consulting services, dedicated teams, or team augmentation.
We have already improved dozens of games of different genres, involving teams from 1 to 80 QA specialists ready to face new challenges and reach set business goals.
Our QA experts are passionate about games. They suggest game improvements and make every effort to reach clients’ goals.
We select tools, leverage various in-house devices for accurate testing results, and employ test automation solutions to optimize QA processes.
