    Mobile Game Development Studio

    United States - Last active: 11/13/2012 - Tests: 1

    I am looking to put my skills to work in creating high quality mobile games for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and Nook Color. I was lead developer and manager for multiple apps and games for iOS and Android mobile devices. One of our games is Burst! (http://wickeyware.com/games/burst/). It is a physics based puzzle game written in Objective C on XCode. It uses Box2d as its physics engine. It received over 400,000 downloads on the App Store. Another game is called Jetpack Miner. It was written in LUA within the Corona SDK platform. It was designed to be a huge tile-based world with destructible blocks with realistic physics and also run on nearly all mobile devices. A single game can consist of up to 160,000 tiles in a randomly generated map.(http://wickeyware.com/games/jetpackminer/). We also built apps. One popular app we developed was for keeping track of volleyball stats. It was designed for iPad only so that the entire tracking system could be on one screen and replace a typical score pad. It used a SQL Lite database accessed via Core Data.
