Rovio on balancing luck and skill in Nibblers

At Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2015, Peter Willington spoke to Rovio's Teemu Hämäläinen.

He's been working as executive producer on its latest game Nibblers, a match-3 game, targeted towards women.

It's a demographic Hämäläinen has previously experienced in his time at Habbo Hotel.

When it comes to Nibblers, the team created over 20 prototypes to come up with a puzzle game that balanced luck and skill in an appropriate way for the player.
