Here are some featured design and development projects.
MentalBlocker iPhone & iPad Game
Work done: Visual Design, Interaction Design, & Development (Swift). Completed September 2016.
MentalBlocker is a puzzle game that I designed and developed in Swift. The motivation behind the game is simple: to create a game that challenges a player’s memory and problem-solving skills.
The game has four modes, all of which have two things in common: a grid of tiles and blocks. Memo mode shows randomly placed blocks on the screen for a second and then removes the blocks to allow the player to tap them in the correct positions by memory. The grid gets bigger and the number of blocks increases as the levels progress.
Flashback mode is similar, but instead of tapping the blocks in any order, the player must tap them in the order in which they appear.
Pairs mode is like the classic memory card game: pairs of images are marked on blocks of different colors, and the player flips over the blocks two at a time until all of the pairs are found.
Safe Zone mode, my favorite mode so far, is a puzzle with blocks that the player must slide into designated white tiles called Safe Zones. There is a caveat: instead of simply sliding each block onto a safe zone in however many moves the player can solve the level in, he or she must solve the level in the least amount of moves.
Here are computer simulations of the app that show the gameplay for each mode:
Memo: Tap the blocks that appear
Flashback: tap the blocks in the same order
Pairs: Find all matching pairs of blocks
Safe Zone: slide a block onto each white tile

YumTum iPhone Recipe App
Work done: Visual Design, Interaction Design, & Development (Objective-C). Last updated in 2015.
YumTum is a personal recipe manager for the iPhone. Written in Objective-C, the app connects to a web server via an API that I created in PHP that syncs data to and from a user's iPhone in a MySQL database.Click here to download this app for free on the App Store.

Citrix Mail, Contacts, and Calendar App
Work done: Visual Design, Interaction Design, & Development (Swift)
This is a concept for a Mail, Contacts, and Calendar iPad application that I designed while working for Citrix. Users can quickly create an email, contact, or meeting by dragging and dropping from one of the three content types to another.
