Well, what exactly is flapping brontosaurus?

Warning: Its not exactly safe for work!!! So you will need to click on more info to see the screenshots.

Essentially it is this : It is a brontosaurus in a field eating grass. You shake the device really fast to break him and beat the game.  And if you find the game too easy, touch the screen to turn off the lights and only shake his shadow!

This is one of those apps you want to install on your friends phone and leave it their for them to find it.

Flappy Bird 3D Clone – Sent to AppWorld

What can happen in 24 hours ?

IMG_20140208_172753

Today, I played a little game called Flappy Bird for iOS.

Cute, fun and addictive!  Then the developer announced they were pulling the game from platforms, with no intention of adding new ones.

So, what did I do about it?  In 8 hours, I built an entire Flappy Bird clone, feature complete, in a 3D environment with true physics, a score system that saves, and even animated many parts of the game.

I also submitted it to BlackBerry World.  Booyah!

Secure AntiVirus 2.0.0.xx has been submitted to AppWorld

I spent many hours recoding this to improve speed and reliability.  The biggest improvement is the ‘smartscan’ function, which allows the AV to ‘remember’ what files it scanned before!

Whats next?

Now that the release seems stable, the next big update will be a move from AS3 to Cascades.  During this move, I will be adding headless app support – keeping in mind it is going to take a while to finish the re-coding.  Just know, that I have been working on this app (its the hardest app in my portfolio to maintain).

Once we move to Cascades, the AIR code will be going to github as open source for future developers to learn :)
