All the games on the site are listed below in alphabetical order by title. For a chronological list, see the most recent page.
Balloon Shoot. This is a target shooting game in which the targets are colorful balloons drifting up past your window. Your goal is to plunk them with your pellet rifle, ideally hitting three or four balloons with a single pellet. The game works on any platform, using either a mouse or touch control. (More info.)
The Bellatrix Box. This is another retro-style, pixel-art game. It’s a space dodge’em. The central mechanic is drag-and-drop, which can be accomplished with either mouse or touch control. The form factor is perfect for smart phones, but works on any platform.
Brick Blitz is a Breakout style game. It can be played on any platform, using keyboard, or mouse, or touch. However, the layout is perfect for smart phones.
Bullet Road is a basic turret defense game. Right now, there is only one level. I have ideas for expanding this one. The game is designed for laptop or tablet, and can be played via mouse or touch.
Cardo: A Memory Game is a simple playing card matching game. I made it to get back into game-making. I’m planning a deluxe version where you will pit your memory against the computer’s.
Circle Shooter. Ironically, given the title, this is not a classic shooter. The computer does all the aiming and shooting. Your role, as player, is to load the correct ammunition. Otherwise, the auto-shooting is ineffective, and your turret will be quickly rammed and destroyed.
Deep Space Patrol (2012). A horizontal space shooter with plenty of action. Lacks touch controls. (More info.)
Flight Path Impossible. This is a side-scrolling endless flyer game, featuring a little red plane that you need to pilot between jagged mountain peaks. The game uses mouse/ touch or keyboard controls. The format is best suited for a tablet or laptop.
Guess the Number. An old-fashioned game in which you try to guess a number between 1 and 100 with the fewest tries. It keeps session statistics. Can be played via mouse or touch. (More info.)
Make ’em Smile. This is a sorting game. In a sorting game, it’s as if you are working on a conveyor-belt, tossing parts into different bins as they slide by. Naturally, the speed gradually increases. The game uses mouse or touch controls, and is the perfect format for smart phones.
Oduwac the Vac. This is a basic collecting game, with a time limit, which can be played with mouse or touch control. It’s one of the few games here for which I created all of the media.
Particle Harvest. Once again, you find yourself in deep space, dodging all sorts of space junk. At the same time, you are trying to collect valuable, high-speed particles. While it has both touch and keyboard controls, this game is especially well-suited to mobile play.
The Pumper. A fly-over style shooter, with colorful pixel-graphics, best played on a tablet or laptop. (More info.)
Purple Dude Dash. This is a one-level platform game, in which the object is to collect 20 gold coins in as few seconds as possible. My best time so far is 27 seconds, but I’m sure others can beat that. Give it a try! The game uses mouse/ touch or keyboard controls. The format is best suited for a tablet or laptop.
Reap the Ion Storm. This is a dodge ’em type space game. You move a space saucer from side to side, dodging deadly ion bolts while attempting to collect resources from the stream. Can be played on laptops, tablets, or smart phones.
Red Beard’s Run. A retro-style, pixel-art endless runner game. You make your character jump over the spike pits with key press, mouse click, or touch-screen tap. The goal is to cover as much ground as possible before dying.
Robot Crosses the Road. This game does not answer (nor even address) the question, “Why does the robot cross the road?” It’s just about getting there in one piece. This can be played on any platform, with the right form-factor for smart phones.
Saucer Attack! In this game, you must fend off an attack by the Saucer People, who are dropping stink bombs on your capital city. The stench is demoralizing the population, and will lead to surrender if you don’t do something. All you can do is use a hilltop defense turret to shoot the bombs as they fall. Shooting at the saucer itself is counter-productive. Your shots are likely to bounce off and hit the city. The game features my original game art.
The Spinner. This game is an abstract shooter. The title “character” is a set of spinning silver spheres, with a large central sphere being rapidly orbited by six smaller spheres. The player unit is a golden triangle that fires bullets from its apex. You can aim and fire, and that’s all. The Spinner slowly spins toward your unit. You need to destroy the Spinner before it hits. The big central sphere is vulnerable to your bullets. A single hit will destroy it, and the entire system. But the small orbiting spheres are invulnerable to bullets. They deflect them in unpredictable ways, including right back at your little triangle. The game is played in rounds. How many will you win and how many will the Spinner win?
Star Drop: a physics puzzler. A simple five-level puzzle. Can be played on laptops, tablets, or smart phones. (More info.)
Susan Dives into Regret. This is the second action game in the Susan Series, a vertical jumper in which you help the stick-figure adventurer escape the Shaft of Ever-Lasting Regret. Turns out the Shaft does not go on forever, but has seven levels. It is possible to win. The format is perfect for phones, and the game has the usual control options — keyboard, mouse, or touch.
Susan Runs from Despair. No, this is not a game about treating depression with physical exercise. The title character is running from an actual Pit of Despair, a big dark hole in the ground. Your job is to help her stay out of it for as long as possible. This is an endless run/ jump type of game. It should be playable on any platform, with the choice of mouse, touch, or keyboard controls.
Tanira Transit. This game is in the “crossing a busy road” category, only the busy road is outer space, and the traffic consists of asteroids and comets. The main problem is, your rocket ship can’t speed up or slow down. Once you launch it, the die is cast. Timing is everything. My best score is 11. No doubt I could do better with practice. The game fits the smart phone format well, but can be played on anything, using either keyboard or touch. The game can also be played on the Construct Arcade.
Tapinum. I was fooling around with some poker chip graphics, trying to see what sort of game I could make with those and little else. The result is this collecting-type game. It is best played on a laptop or tablet, with either mouse or touch controls.
Target Master. In this game, you are shooting at a standard circular target in a gale-force wind that changes direction once or twice a second. The objective is to score bull’s-eyes. To do that consistently, you need to account for the wind. And be patient. The game is well-suited to smart phones, but can be played with mouse or touch controls.
Voorom. A vertical space shoot ’em up, with keyboard, mouse and touch controls. Well-suited to a smart phone. (More info.)
Wormhole Guardian. Another vertical space shooter, with fast action and a scoring system that awards points to both sides. Can be played on any device, but is easiest with a keyboard. (More info.)
Zomblastic 2.2. In this shooter, your player character is standing in the center of a room rapidly filling with hungry and relentless zombies. The good news is, your character’s gun has an endless supply of explosive bullets. The bad news is, there is an endless supply of zombies. Best for laptops or tablets, with the option of using mouse or touch control. Version 2.2 corrects a bug in the difficulty system that was added in Version 2. (This game can also be played on the Construct Arcade.)
