Mobile Game Development Studio

United States - Last active: 11/13/2012 - Tests: 1

I am looking to put my skills to work in creating high quality mobile games for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and Nook Color. I was lead developer and manager for multiple apps and games for iOS and Android mobile devices. One of our games is Burst! ( It is a physics based puzzle game written in Objective C on XCode. It uses Box2d as its physics engine. It received over 400,000 downloads on the App Store. Another game is called Jetpack Miner. It was written in LUA within the Corona SDK platform. It was designed to be a huge tile-based world with destructible blocks with realistic physics and also run on nearly all mobile devices. A single game can consist of up to 160,000 tiles in a randomly generated map.( We also built apps. One popular app we developed was for keeping track of volleyball stats. It was designed for iPad only so that the entire tracking system could be on one screen and replace a typical score pad. It used a SQL Lite database accessed via Core Data.

Games - Unity - Unreal Engine 4 - UDK

Romania - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 27

Current project: I have been a full-time freelance game programmer since 2012. For me, this is not some low priority hobby I do on the side, for a few extra dollars. It's all I do. I am only interested in games, built with Unity or Unreal. The main priority for any project, from my perspective – perfecting and expanding my technical abilities. I am not a mercenary that jumps ship at the first sign of trouble (any trouble), or if some other interesting, irresistible offer comes up. To the best of my abilities, I will lead your project to completion. Win-win - you achieve your goals - get your project, while I have some jaw-dropping game to show after months or years of work. I am autonomous, self-sufficient, affordable and loyal. Any game studio or indie project would be lucky to have me. I am a perfectionist, completely self taught. I have an unforgiving eye for detail, quality and beauty, and I am a ruthless tester. Whatever comes out of my hands is pushed to the limits of detail and perfection. I do not take shortcuts, I do not do patchwork, even if nobody will know, and nobody will see. I will know. I consider simplicity to be the core of performance, and I never leave behind a single useless line of code. In fact, 59.6% of my classes have no update loops, and the rest up to 82.7% have a single "if". There is not much in a game that should run at 60 frames per second.
