Two of the flash games I have created for the DefenceJobs Games site have been fully reworked and for the iPhone and iPad. Yay!
Some of the clever guys I work with at Visual Jazz (looking at you Tom) have taken my AS3 code and reworked it to play nice with Apples nifty little machines. Best of all, you can download them for free!
Warfare Officer is the biggest game I have built to date. Built in Flash using Away3D lite, it used a variety of techniques that I have never used before. It was a bit of a min
Here is a quick summary of some of the techniques I used when building this game.
Warfare Officer is a bizzarre mix of real-time strategy and arcade explosiveness (if there is such a thing).
Take control of three Australian navel ships and lead them on a mission to destroy the enemy base whilst protecting your own.
So, how was Strike Fighter built? Well, for starters it is all done in flash, which I think would be kinda obvious since that is what I tend to work with.
The rest was a combination of some basic 3D and a few little tricks. To find out more, read on
Striker Fighter is an 80’s style arcade shooter that I built at Visual Jazz for the Defence Jobs Games website. It was really fun to build and really fun to play. At least, I think it is. I spent so long on it that it has become hard to tell
It was actually completed months ago, I’ve just been lazy about adding it to my site.
A few months back, Visual Jazz (the place I work) was building a new site for Visy called Visy Enviromaniacs. The purpose of the site was to help educate children about the environment, teaching them about recycling, saving energy, etc.
To help make the learning for fun and keep the kids interested, a major section of the site was a series of mini games with a planet saving theme. It was my job to build those games… I love my job

Build your own online jigsaw puzzle to play and share with friends. Simply upload a JPEG image that you wish to use, click a couple of buttons, and BAM! online jigsaw puzzle.
You’ll be sent an email with a custom URL that you and anyone else can use to play your online jigsaw.
Marble Buster is an odd game. It is simple in its requirements but requires planning in order to achieve high scores.
You start off with a board full of randomly coloured marbles. When you click on a group of two or more matching colours, they disappear, and the grid collapses to fill the gaps. The bigger the group you match, the more points you earn.
It’s simple but pretty addictive.
This is basically a digital representation of a traditional jigsaw puzzle. Like all jigsaws the aim of the game is to re-assemble all of the puzzle pieces until you have the final image.
Catching as many bugs as you can – that’s what Grabbit is all about.
You play as a frog, sitting on the side of the pond. As bugs fly over your head you use your tongue to catch as many as you can. To keep things interesting, there is a timer counting down the whole time. Every time you catch 10 bugs, you get a little bit more time.
The longer you last, the harder the bugs are to catch, and the more points you get.
See if you can get the highest score!
