Welcome to my little place on the web.

I'm a software developer and occasionally when time allows, I like to blog about my various coding project here. I also like to tinker with home automation, retro gaming and more.

I have also shared some of my software, which I hope may be of use to others. It's on my software page.

Nearly there !!

Just a quick update this morning, as it's been a while! School holidays have been keeping me busy!

Anyway I have been busy fixing the last few bugs in lost little spaceman. Think I'm now just down to 4 bugs. Once these are ironed out it will be updated on Google play to the next beta. This will be the final version before it goes to final release. I may add Russian language before it goes to final release as I have had a lot of requests.

How I make games

I number of people have asked me how and what I use to create games, so decided it was time to write about it.

My first game Dave Dangerous was written in Java, at the time this was a language I had not used. But being a c# developer the languages are very similar. Both object oriented and use very similar syntax.

Including creating your own physics, for my later games I used a physics engines, but was still nice to understand this logic. Tutor... read more
