Apps


Sprite Creator – iOS


SCAppIcon1024

Sprite Creator is a very powerful and easy to use pixel art drawing app. Create and import sprite sheets, tile maps, or even animated gifs. This app has been designed to be a simple and powerful tool for creating pixel art that doesn’t require you to learn an extensive interface with confusing tools.

Flock – iOS


Flock-Icon

Flock was a great board game that my brother and I came up with. Originally we were going to develop it for Android together, but I ended up getting a job as a mobile developer which prevented me from working on my own apps. He continued on and developed Flock – Android without me. Now that I work for another company I was finally able to do the iOS version. It took me a few months working a few hours every couple of nights to finish the app. I am very excited to see how it does on iOS.

Lilly – iOS

Lilly was a fun app I did for the SpriteKit Alliance 2015 Game Jam. I ended up getting first place and the app was complete enough to submit to the App Store. All said an done, including app submission, I put 30 hours into the project. It is free and I even have the source code available on my GitHub page here

Dicey Dice – Android


diceydice

This was my very first app that I ever created and funny enough the most successful. I first made it for Blackberry and never published it. I soon realized that it would be much wiser for me to learn Android development instead. With some help from my brother Dicey Dice was born. I haven’t done a ton with it after I published it and it has over 40,000 downloads and a 4 start rating. The app is based on a dice game my mom taught me how to play. It is more fun to play with others, but I thought saving how many rounds it took to get to 40,000 pts made it great for solo play too. I hope to add Google Play’s turn based API so you aren’t limited to pass and play.

The app can be downloaded on the app store here

Dicey Dice – JavaScript

I thought it would be fun to work on my JavaScript skills and make a JavaScript version of Dicey Dice.

You can play it right here.
