Color Hex

Color Hex is a mobile puzzle game for Android and iOS built and published uing the Unity platform.

The player must try and match patterns by mixing colours together on a hexagonal grid. As the patterns get more complicated the puzzle becomes more difficult.

There are 2 play modes with a combined total of 222 levels.

My first attempt at using the Unity platform to create a mobile game was a mobile version of the dice game Farkle.

All The Sneakers

In-progress search engine of sneakers collating and comparing sneakers from a number of eCommerce sites.

Regularly spiders a number of sites and compares prices where identical sneakers appear on multiple sites.

Winstagram

More and more people are posting photos on their social web blogs. But most of them are not very good photographers. Or have poorly made cameras. The colours come out funny, the edges are all crackly and often some of the image is out of focus.

I have developed an app to restore these poor quality photographs: Winstagram!

We can't go on like this

Good old David Cameron. He's so suave yet so caring. he just wants the best for the country. He says so in his lovely new poster campaign (NSFDuring lunch).

Deface David's poster with your own words with "Make your own David Cameron poster".

Go on, have a go. You know you want to. Make it look like he is saying rude words. Hurr hurr hurr!

Malcolm Tucker

Combines the David Cameron poster generator with the foul-mouthed tirades of Malcolm Tucker, sweary spin doctor from The Thick of It.

A random choice of blue bon-mot is substituted every time you click the "Tuckerise" button so click away. However, be warned. He is a very very rude man and if you don't like naughty words you probably won't like this.

Invented by the English

If it was invented, it was probably invented by an Englishman.

Just look at this service station sandwich! I saw it displayed two weeks ago and haven't been able to stop thinking about it since... - baked beans! In a sandwich! - lumps of generic meat not even pretending to be sausage or bacon! - unidentified yellow goo! Egg would make more sense with beans and meat but surely it is 'cheese', isn't it? - the artificial looking white bread that has somehow been 'griddled' without any of the inside of the bread getting even slightly toasted. It's a culinary miracle that has got me in its grip and won't let go. I'm still not going to buy the damn thing though.
