1 to 100 – a counting game for children

1 to 100 is a game I made with my daughter in mind. She is just past two and is always counting. I wanted to make a game that would help her both hear and see the numbers in the correct order. So, 1 to 100 was born.

In the game, groups of 10 numbers are displayed on the screen. The child can only clear the screen by touching the numbers in the correct order. When the right number is pressed, it is read aloud and fades away. When all the numbers are cleared, 10 more appear. If your child hits the wrong number, it shakes but does not read the number out loud. To help those that don’t read yet, the next number in line will slowly pulse after a moment.

1 to 100 is available now on iOS as a universal app, the amazon app store (including Kindle tablets) and the Windows 8 store. It should be coming to the nook later this week.

Hypnosis II – coming soon

I spent the past two weeks working on a side project to clear my head from my other few games and I submitted it to Apple, Amazon B&N and Microsoft on monday. Today it was approved for Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the Windows 8 app store! I expect it to show up on iOS on friday as a universal app. The app features 50 different optical and motion illusions, and has a nice easy to use swipe interface. I’ll be posting a video soon.

Z is for Zombie – Now available on the Kindle Fire!

The very first iPhone game I ever created has finally been ported over to the Kindle Fire. During porting I was able to address some performance issues, fix some nagging bugs, and cleanup the graphics, and it looks wonderful on the device. You can see a screenshot below. It should be available on the nook sometime in the next few days as well.

Owls – Available now for the iPad & Nook

Equal parts education and entertainment, Owls is a fun matching game for children of all ages.

The Parliament School for Owls is very serious about the Buddy System. Every Owl has a buddy, and is not allowed to come in from recess without them. Your job is to help the Owls find their buddy and get in for lunch! Learn about Owls, watch the seasons change and see how quickly you can send the Owls home. Can you earn 3 stars in every level?

In Owls, children match random pairs of owls to clear the screen. After successfully completing each level, they are rewarded with a little fact about owls. Every 25 levels the seasons change from Spring to Summer, Fall and Winter. They can earn up to 3 stars per level depending on how quickly they clear the screen, and go back as many times as they wish to retry.

Features:
* 999 Random Levels
* 30 Different Owls
* 40 Different backgrounds showing all 4 seasons
* Fun facts about Owls after every level
* 22 Game Center Achievements
* Game Center Leader boards

Owls – A matching game for kids!

I’m finally ready to take the wraps off a matching game I’ve been working on for the past few mths. It’s called Owls, and it’s coming to the iPad, Kindle Fire and Nook, hopefully in the next week or so.

There are 999 levels, and each one is randomly designed, from the owl types to their destination. In any given level, there are 13 different owl pairs on the screen (out of 30), going to 26 different locations.

The official page for the app is also available over here.

Hopefully the game does well, my 15 mth old daughter loves the images so that’s something :)
