DOI : 10.7583/JKGS.2015.15.3.31
In this study, the effect of amount of use of mobile game (time of use, consumption cost) on the perceived satisfaction level (perceived enjoyment, service quality, and price) of game and commitment is to be observed. If the amount of game use is high, are the satisfaction level and commitment of game high as well? Is there any factor of negative effect on game commitment? As a result of study, among the mobile game use behaviors subjected in this study, higher the amount of use and consumption cost, more the level of satisfaction level and commitment on game. This study is to verify and analyze the high level of perceived satisfaction and commitment on mobile game by users with high amount of use to expand and to discuss the base of study of heavy mobile game user and heavy digital game user.

DOI : 10.7583/JKGS.2015.15.3.41
This study attempted to identify differences in user experience such as spatial presence, social presence, flow, empathy, anxiety, and perceived risk between simulating characters of animation and of actual userimage. The playtesting method was conducted on 60 male smokers using `Smoking Sims`, a simulation game produced by The Center for Health Communication Studies. The results found that the simulation of actual image character is higher in the level of perceived risks for smoking, spatial presence, social presence, flow, and empathy than the simulation of animation character. The study shows that identification with a game character affects user experience and enhances the effectiveness of perceived risks as well. It emphasizes the importance of game design to implement identification in serious game like a smoking cessation simulation.

After the release of SDK in 2011, Kinect developed for the motion recognition games has been applied not only in game but also in various fields such as science, education, and health care. It has some problems as belated responses to player`s movements, a lot of noise in the recognized data, and an untraceable player when the body is partially occluded. Because of Kinect`s such peculiarities of playing environment, most Kinect games require the inconvenience of Kinect`s location or player`s posture correction. In this paper, we propose an interface correction method that minimizes the requirements to be asked players, manages the exceptions such as noise, and enables to process consistently the player`s movements in the game using Kinect. Also, we present the delay time to be considered to develop the game using Kinect through the experiment.

DOI : 10.7583/JKGS.2015.15.3.151
This paper presents English vocabulary memorization system using forgetting curve to automatically adjust the vocabulary difficulty to match learner`s level. Our system will decide the appropriate repetition cycle, depending on the number of memorizing words through the forgetting curve, then requires an iterative learning. No matter what learners know or do not know, words are reviewed. To save time by reviewing some words which have the highest probability that learners forget. And it provides vocabulary based on learner level, which makes learner maintain their interest and achievement. A general system provides vocabularies which difficulty matches with evaluated ones, or randomly provides some vocabularies without consideration of users` level. But we apply the "Glicko" system which is being used in the online chess game ranking system to adjust the vocabulary`s difficulty. We utilize the system used in the one-by-one player system to our vocabulary-human system. As a result, learners`s level and the vocabularies`s difficulty is measured in the review process. Moreover it maximizes the performance of English vocabulary memorization by applying feedbacks from practice testing and distributed learning.
