Projects

This is an abridged list of my side projects.

  • 99 (iOS Game)

    99 (iOS Game)

    The game of 99 is a fun, classic board game combining elements of Sequence and Connect Four — and it’s now available on iOS. You can play with friends in the same room with “Pass & Play,” or across with world with GameCenter. The combination of luck and strategy makes this game fun for hours. Check it out on the App Store today!

    This was the first iOS app that I published on the App Store. It uses SwiftUI for the interface, and supports online multiplayer via GameCenter. It also leverages many of the latest iOS features including dark mode. It was a fun experience to build this and I hope to make more apps in the future.
