Snakes and Ladders Ultimate

This app was released in February 2014, based on a promise to my daughter that I would make her a Snakes and Ladders game.  It gives you the option to play a normal game of the classic Snakes and Ladders board game, as well as a “reversed” mode where snakes make you go up and ladders make you go down.  In addition, an option for a random mode exists, which flips between the two methods at random intervals. Later I added another option to include a “lifeline”, i.e. a potion, which you can use once per game to prevent yourself from going down a snake. This added a strategy component to an otherwise random-chance game.

This was the first game of mine that I can actually call a “success”.  It went #1 in the UK and the Philippines under the category “Free iPad Dice Games”, and stayed in the #1 and #2 position in the UK throughout the month of August 2014 (source: Distimo).

The Windows Phone version was published a year later, in March 2015.

Quick Strike Math

This was an educational game that was published in January 2014, a couple of weeks after Poker Nerd.  It teaches basic math with multiple choice and keyboard entry questions.  I experimented with particle effects such as fireworks and lightning.

Poker Nerd

Poker Nerd consists of a couple of simple poker-based games and a couple of utilities for people new to the rules of Texas Hold ‘Em Poker. This was the first app I released, at the start of the new year in 2014.
