Invasion of the Emerald Saucers (NextBASIC, ZX Spectrum Next)

Invasion of the Emerald Saucers is an arcade-style game taking inspiration from Asteroids/Space War/Computer Space written entirely in NextBASIC for the ZX Spectrum Next. It also serves as a test bed project for me in learning developing with the Next hardware, as well as with NextBASIC.

In this, I was responsible for the programming, game design, sprites (except for the hyperspace and explosions), backgrounds and sound effects.

Development Notes/Process

Pocket Dogfights (Unity, C#)

Pocket Dogfights is a Windows/Macintosh/Linux/iOS/Android arcade game, in which the player takes the role of a WWII fighter-pilot and must battle waves of enemy fighters and bombers in an attempt to get the highest score.

I handled coding, gameplay design, sound effects design, and some art elements such as power up graphics, and particle effects.

Meteor Swarm (XNA, C#)

Meteor Swarm is a Windows retro-inspired action game combining simple gameplay, fast-paced action, and the thrill of getting the highest score on the high-score table.

Eventbook (Cocoa Touch, Objective-C)

Eventbook was an iOS application designed as a means to easily access your Facebook event feed, as well as pull up a map containing the location of an event - this was well before Facebook’s own application supported such facilities.
