Battle camp is a social monster catching game for iOS and Android. Players acquire and evolve monsters by participating in pvp battles.
Chat access is separate from the Tab Bar and the rest of the social options.
Keyboard obscures the chat window.
Social icon opens a second Tab Bar which obscures the primary Tab Bar.
I was asked by Battle Camp creator WRKSHP to ideate a redesign concept for the navigation, focusing on a rework of the chat window.
Combining all social interaction options under the “Social” icon in the Tab Bar simplifies navigation.
The ‘Social’ Tab Bar can now be found atop the keyboard while utilizing the chat window.
The ‘Full Screen’ button has been replaced with a simple drawer that the user can drag to expand or collapse the chat window.
