Abstract

An information processing device includes: a receiver that receives a slide gesture input and a tap gesture input on a touch panel that displays a screen of the game; and a processor that, once a user completes a quest of the game, causes the touch panel to display a screen indicating contents and a confirmation button. Upon detecting the slide gesture input, the processor determines that desired contents have been continuously selected from the contents. The slide gesture input is based on a slide gesture by which the desired contents have been continuously touched. Upon detecting the tap gesture input, the processor determines that the desired contents have been confirmed to be selected. The tap gesture input is based on a tap gesture on the confirmation button. A space between each of the contents and the confirmation button is at least a size of each of the contents.

Abstract

An information processing device includes: a controller that generates a game image of an object disposed in a virtual game space; and a touch panel that displays the game image. The touch panel detects an input of a user's touch operation on the game image and outputs, to the controller, a detection signal indicating the detection of the input. The controller determines a contact surface area at an indicated position on the touch panel indicated by the user's touch operation based on the detection signal. The controller determines, based on a size of the contact surface area, whether ae first operation or a second operation has been inputted. The controller performs a first control related to the object in response to the first operation, and a second control related to the object when the second operation has been inputted.

Abstract

A game processing method that causes a computer to execute a game program includes displaying, with a touchscreen, a reference operation and a deck that comprises an item, receiving a first input operation to select the deck and second input operations, determining a matching degree between the reference operation and each of the second input operations, outputting, from a processor to a memory, a level of the matching degree based on the determination, counting, with the processor, a number of consecutive times that the level continuously exceeds a predetermined threshold level, calculating, with the processor, a score of the user based on the number, and outputting, from the processor to the memory, the score. When the item comprises a card having a predetermined effect and continuation of exceeding the predetermined threshold level is interrupted, the number is counted as if no interruption has occurred.

Abstract

A game device includes a memory that stores a predetermined value and a processor that subtracts a value corresponding to a game action in a game from the predetermined value while the game action is executed and outputs the subtracted predetermined value to the memory. The processor also increases, as time passes, the predetermined value of which an upper limit is an upper limit value and outputs the increased predetermined value to the memory. When the processor detects payment of a fee or use of a game item obtained by the payment, the processor adds a first value to the predetermined value that exceeds the restoration upper limit value and outputs, to the memory, the predetermined value to which the first value is added. The first value is greater than a second value that is added to the predetermined value being under the upper limit value.

Abstract

An information processing device includes a controller that generates a list that includes a plurality of players while a game is underway, a receiver that receives a request from an external device to acquire an intangible item to be executed in the game based on input from one of the players, and a transmitter that transmits a signal to the external device. The controller counts a number of predetermined players who have input the request within a first time period among the plurality of players. The controller outputs, to the transmitter, an instruction to award the intangible item to the predetermined players when the number is less than a predetermined value. The controller outputs, to the transmitter, an instruction to award the intangible item and an additional intangible item to the predetermined players when the number is greater than or equal to the predetermined value.
