Rogue Cards Scanned
Quick little variation I made based off of the Birthday Game. This is a basic 1 dimensional game that appears 2 dimensional, removing overlaps with another pool, and added several other features.

Little game I made for my brother for his birthday. He doesn't usually enjoy installing apps on his iPhone, so I tested on a roommate's iPhone. The simplicity comes from the limited controls since I couldn't lock the phone on the app, and didn't want mistaken swipes to effect the browser or cause you to navigate backwards. Web overhead was the biggest issue of this. I had to strip down nearly the entire engine, do lots of compression, and memory management within pools and organization of initialization to get this to run smoothly.

BreakOut Mod Download - Java
This is a game I made on my own in Java. I just wanted to make a game in Java for a little challenge and fun. Had a fast game loop until putting in some Multi-threading and then it was ridiculously fast.

Soccer Shootout Play - Javascript
A game I made on my own to add JavaScript to a website for class.
---- Note: To play this, you need to click, hold down your click, and move your mouse in a kicking motion and release. You can manually adjust the loft. but the rest determines the power and direction of the kick.
This was my first experience with JavaScript, and it took a weekend to make it. I was docked points because we weren't supposed to make a game. (I didn't know what else to do with it.)

Alien Warp - (1st collaborative game in Elementary School, early rendition ~'96 or '97) Download - QBasic
(This is the raw game that was finished in about 6th grade it is missing 2+ boss battles, dialog with animated characters, and landing scenes. In search of a ribbon connection that can read an old 80s IBM computer to recover that.
Download has both the language and the game on it.)

..... Many others including a bubble blower in Flash and ActionScript, fruit basket and fruit thrower in GameMaker, Monopoly in C++, and many others but hardware issues and poor repositories have been the death of many of them. :-(

But no reason to stop moving forward. More to come!
