I am a hobbiest game developer, My objective is purely to write games that people enjoy, I already have a full time job which I enjoy doing so this is purely fun. I have been game programming for over 30 years on various platforms using various languages. I normally develop game that take an average of a few months to develop, This is the average amount of time I want to spend on developing a game, Fairspace however broke this mould and became a six year project, I will probably continue to evolve and develop Fairspace for a very long time. My only financial goal in game development is to cover my costs and expenses for buying libraries/graphics and hosting.


GalaxIverse is a top down fast paced vertical blastathon, Battle Fleets and formations of aliens with the occasional boss thrown in for good luck. Enhance your ship with shields, bombs, bots and extra firepower by collecting power ups. The game is designed to be played by mouse and keyboard, whereby you shoot through the crosshairs. However the game fully supports game controllers and different styles of play allowing for a straight up and down shooter.


Fairspace is an amateur developed open-ended space exploration, trading and combat game. A full and rich persistent universe awaits your discovery. An experimental MMO server is available for players who want to engage with others, forming teams to take joint missions or just roaming the universe killing anything they see, There are presently no safe zones or rules on the MMO server. This is an experimental server and has not been tested to capacity. If the Idea of playing the game single player doesn't appeal to you then this may not be the game for you.

Android Games

I have developed several free to play mobile games for android, These were mostly ports from previous assembly language games I had previously written. I didnt enjoy developing in Java and probably wont persue this line of development. Although the games are free they do contain advertising from tap for tap, This is an advert exchange system to help grow the game.
