Special Game Release - Cafe Car: Christmas!


With only four days to go before Christmas, here is a light-hearted version of Cafe Car (previously Starby Car) with a holiday theme. I took the same game, switched up the graphics, eased up a bit on some of the difficulty, and added some fantastic audio.

The purpose of the game is to maneuver your car to grab the gifts, "spending" as much as possible, all while dodging oncoming Christmas trees. How far can you exceed your budget? Click the link below to find out!

File is in .zip format, and the game will run on most Windows platforms.

Your feedback and high scores via comments, and any spreading the word is much appreciated!

iPhone Development Class Summary

Twelve weeks have come and gone, and my iPhone development course is coming to an end. As I type this, the last student demonstration is being done, and we will move on to the guest speakers who are iPhone developers already successful in the industry, or people heavily involved in the social media market.

The final class is being held in the Burnaby BCIT campus, in the Telus Theatre.

It's been a great class and I've learned a lot. Best of all, I have an application that with a little more work is something I plan to launch to the Apple App Store for people all over the world to use.

It's also been a very busy few months, and the next couple of weeks will be focused on getting ready for the holidays and dealing with a lot of other unfinished business. After Christmas, I'll be back into the swing of things with the launch of my website, iPhone application, and the promoting of both.

Special thanks to Natasha for bearing with the extra load during the last three months, especially in the last week or two. Time for a break!

October, November 2009 Slideshows

Happy December, everyone! We look forward to the next few weeks heading into the holiday season and wish all of you a great time with family and friends. But let's get right to the real point of this post: Photos!

We are happy to announce the release of our October and November 2009 albums, conveniently provided as links in the sidebar, or here in the text itself.

The October album is stuffed with some very entertaining shots of Charlotte, as well as some from our trips to Edmonton and Chase. The November album features (you guessed it!) more Charlotte, as well as the Cockman Family concert, and our board game event.

Enjoy!

iPhone App: Traffic Rush

I love it when I open the App Store and find a couple of new apps that look like they'll add a bit of fun to my iPhone. I recently spotted this one, Traffic Rush, on the free list, and installed it.


Traffic Rush

The game is simple. Vehicles of all types are heading towards the intersection, and it is your job to make sure none of them crash. You can do this by tapping them which stops them for a few seconds, or by swiping them which makes them speed up.

All you need to do is decide which vehicles to speed through in front of others and which to slow down. Simple, right? It's not as easy as it looks. This game is perfect for a couple of spare minutes, so get over to the App Store and install a copy today.
