Announcing Drop Flip

We have a new game to share!  After months of planning, design, development and tremendous amounts of polish, Drop Flip will be dropping into the App Store on March 31st!

 

Drop Flip is a game of silly physics contraptions where you move, flip and navigate obstacles of every shape and size to you accomplish the not-so-simple task of dropping a ball into a bucket.

As you’ll see with my other games such as Alpha Omega and the har•mo•ny series, I’m a huge fan of minimalistic design and lots of color…Drop Flip shares the same style. However, underneath this visual simplicity lies gameplay that’s rich with complexity and loads of fun!

There will be 100 levels at launch with more coming this summer. Each level is quite unique in itself with some getting a bit crazy!

Word² is Live!

After months of planning and preparation, design and development, Word² is now available in the App Store!  Word² is a challenging game where you must unscramble each word not just once, but twice.

appstore-apple

Inspired by word squares which date well into ancient times, each square contains words in pairs that can be read both horizontally and vertically. Words are scrambled and your objective is to use hints, clues and logic to decipher each square.

Here’s an image of the ancient “Sator Square”.  This one is extra-special as not only do words pair up, but they’re also palindromic (same word spelled forwards or backwards).

Much thought, preparation and love has gone into creating this colorful game which I sincerely hope you enjoy.  Grab a good pair of headphones and download Word² today in the App Store!   Thanks for your support!

BorderLeap Games

The leap across the border…

After 3 years, 5 games, 1 weather app, balancing 2 full-time jobs, countless 80 hour weeks and more cups of coffee than I can count, I’m happy to say that I have made the leap across the border (pun intended) to making BorderLeap my full-time career.  Actually, the transition took place back in May, but I have not had a place to share the experience and the stories that surrounded it.  That place is now here 🙂

To say that the past three years have been a roller coaster of a ride would be an understatement.  I’ve wanted to create this web site to not only showcase games I’ve built but also share about the processes in designing and developing them.

So without further ado, welcome to the new BorderLeap site!  There will be much more coming…
