PlayZap is a project that I’ve been working on, on and off, for about a year. It’s a games portal for mobile devices – users can play HTML5 games in their mobile browsers, without having to download an app from the app store.
My latest blog entries.
Ahh, the humble reskin.
Candy Shop is – what I consider to be – a more commercially viable version of my Halloween Candy Drop game. You can play it here: Candy Shop. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to licence it (or any of my other HTML5 mobile games) for your mobile games portal.
Happy New Year!
It’s a new year, so to celebrate the occasion I decided to write a blog post that wasn’t technical for a change. This post is a step by step guide to acquiring clients, based on my experiences when I first started out. It’s by no means definitive, and it’s certainly not the only way of doing it: this is simply a personal account of how I started my freelance business; along with the rational for some of the decisions I made, and couple of hints and tips thrown in for good measure. Enjoy
Brickout! is a Breakout/Arkanoid clone. It uses HTML5 Canvas, the Web Audio API, and touch events to provide mobile support. It’s not 100% finished yet – there are a couple of bugs (esp. with mobile), and a few things I’d like to polish up a bit, but I’ll never release it if I keep fiddling with minor details.
(Postmortem to follow).
I’ve been promising to release liteAccordion v2 for ages, but I’ve been snowed under with client work as of late. Last night I finally found the time to complete the last few bits and pieces that I wanted to finish before release.

I put together some css luggage-style tags for a site I’m working on this morning. I think they’re pretty neat, so I thought I’d share them
I’ve been working on a Node.js web application for a couple of months now. A few days ago I ran
npm update on my project without really thinking about it (d’oh), and my Express.js install was upgraded to v3. There are a lot of changes in v3, and it took the best part of a day for me to work through them all. I’ve outlined some of the issues I encountered below. Some of them aren’t particularly easy to find fixes for, so hopefully this will help someone out.
When I released liteAccordion v1 in February last year, a few people asked if I would consider doing a WordPress version. After releasing v2 in November, I set about creating a plugin that would help users to quickly create and implement horizontal accordions into their WordPress posts and pages.
