Existing approaches to characterizing and evaluating level designs involve either the application of theory-based language to qualitatively describe the level’s structure, or empirical evaluation of how players experience the levels. In this paper, we propose a method for evaluation that bridges these two approaches: theorybased, quantitative metrics that measure the qualities of levels. The metrics are drawn from a design activity with student designers creating levels for both a 2D and 3D… CONTINUE READING
