Recent projects:

  • Mash-Up: A game written in HTML/Javascript which combines several different game types (RPG, platformer, and shooter) into one cohesive gaming experience. A sometimes-updated version of the game can be played here. Source code.

  • Elevator: A game for Android where you control the elevator in a busy, bustling building. The goal is to ferry passengers to their desired floor as quickly as possible before they become unhappy; suit-wearing VIPs are worth twice as much, complicating matters somewhat. The game features background music, a touch-to-control interface, adjustable difficulty, and in-app advertisements for the free version. The free version is here, and the full version is here. Source code.

  • PyHack: A graphical Nethack client for the nethack.alt.org online server. It provides visual gameplay similar to QtHack, but lets you save your game on the NAO server and pick it up anywhere. Written in Python using PyGame. Source code.

  • Should I Take My Umbrella?: A simple Android app to tell you if it's a good idea to take an umbrella with you when you go out. Uses weather data from WeatherUnderground, retrieved based on either current geolocated position or a user-entered location anywhere on Earth. Includes in-app advertising. Available here. Source code.

  • PageGenerator: Written for a classmate who needed a quick, easy way to generate HTML pages with a few images and links, conforming to a specific template. Source code.
