Counterbalance - 2009 - Game

Full screen view Assembly game development competition entry. The game ended up winning the game development competition.

Then after some time of fooling around with the concept we ended up adding the balls to the rotating playfield to the game and turning the small test app to a game.

Bumpcraft - 2007 - Game

Full screen view A Ludum Dare 48h entry. Theme was "Build the levels you play". I really wanted to make the building of the levels fun and get rid off the "pick a piece - lay a piece" kind of level building, which seemed boring in my testing.
