What is APK?
First of all, let’s understand what is APK all about!
APK is an abbreviation for Android Package Kit. It is basically a self-executing compressed file, just as zip or RAR, that contains different type of files including the game’s binary iso, XML, audio or images. Think of it as a large box with different things like clothes, shoes, books etc. the things inside the box are analogous to all the components of an APK file and box itself is the apk. When you download a game or app like Mini Militia from PlayStore what you are actually doing is downloading the APK file. Which is then uncompressed by the Android OS and installed on your device.
How was Mini Militia APK created?
The early versions of Mini Militia were created by the collaborative efforts of Chad Towns and Josh Neff. Chad was the originator of the stick shooter game, Doodle Army. Later Hunter Mayer, a developer from Portland stepped in to help manage operations, alert systems when servers went down, develop code for game servers, help out on design and took care of other major workloads. To develop Mini Militia and it’s APK, Chad worked on Android Studio and some Game Engines.
Initially, the design phase was carried out by a group of designer hired by Chad based on this game’s predecessor i.e. Doodle Army. The source of Doodle Army and Boot Camp was used to build up the game. Most of the business logic was written in C and C++ through Android Native Development Kit (NDK) and graphics were redesigned using Unreal Engine.
On iOS, the app is written using Swift and Objective C programming language using Xcode IDE. The game was first released for iOS and then ported to Android.
Here is how Doodle Army used to look like:
The game was named Doodle Army 2 by Chad Towns as a successor to Doodle Army and Boot Camp. The game in the initial days found it hard to grab players attention and had around 10,000 installs for the first year. At the end of 2012, a year after it’s release Mini Militia picked up the pace on Play Store. This happened because of the targeted promotion by Appsomniacs.
