Hong Kong - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 6

Full time, active freelance coder, with 3+ years of experience in applying Corona SDK for mobile game/app developments. I work only on Corona projects. I am also a paid (Enterprise) subscriber of Corona SDK that I can work on most of the Corona's monetization and plugin features. I had built games, business apps and ebooks by the SDK, and also hands of game re-skins, monetizations and app prototypes. Most of them were developed to fit various screen sizes (iPhone/iPad/Androids) and with multi-platform builds (Apple/Google/Amazon), by a single code base. I strongly recommend to use Corona-SDK for fast and muti-platform mobile developments. If you consider to use Corona SDK for any 2d mobile game or app developments, please hire me and I can give you all helps. I have been as a programmer for 10 years. I like games and funny stuffs.
