  • Dead Wheels: Unity3d / C#
  • I developed a mobile game "Dead wheels" for a client. I created the game using Unity 3D/C#. The platforms targeted were Android and Amazon. I integrated IAP in the game. The game is inspired from happy wheels, you drive a character on a bicycle, you should do your best to help him reach the end point while avoiding the different obstacles without killing him or dismember him in a gore way. The movement are based on physics (Physics Joints). Camera scrolls on the side and follow the character, there is 2 mechanics: 1) moving forward and backward. 2) Jumping. There is 6 characters in the game, you unlock them by purchasing them using in-game currency.
  • Taxi Rush: Unity3d / C#
  • I created "Taxi Rush" for a client, using Unity3D/C#. The game is a simulation of a taxi driver who carry passengers to their destination and avoid obstacles (other cars, trains, barrels, holes in the road...). The player has the possibility to choose between 6 cars each car has can carry a specific number of passengers. you unlock them by progressing through levels. The game made a success based on analytics, higher retention and lower CPI, and it was approved by the giant mobile publisher Voodoo.

    task end-up successfully with 60Fps, I edited UE4 engine source code a bit to make the
    game-save-process happens in a separate thread instead of blocking the main thread on PS4 console.
