game animated intro should have a play button?


Recommended Posts

may be somebody dealt with this before...

- the game has an animated intro, either in mp4, spine or html5

- is there any known criteria to put or not a PLAY button at the beginning?

- should the intro start playing right away or wait for the user click on the play button?

- is there any issue or restriction on mobile, iphone, android that requires the play button?

- an immediate intro play would fire a "suspicious activity" detection by chrome or safari?

Any tip is welcome! :D

@Matias Thanks... based on your post, I googled related keywords and get this:

Long story short… to play audio on mobile… it should be initiated with a user gesture (click or touch).
If not the video may go on certain android and ios versions but without sound.
It seems that they prevent the user to download and pay mobile network data transfer.
    “In Safari on iOS (for all devices, including iPad), where the user may be on a cellular network and be charged per data unit, preload and autoplay are disabled”.
