My bio... hmmm... what to say... I arrived on this crazy world clearly by mistake on March 81, in a far, far forgotten small town which has more problems than a whole nation, close to the pacific ocean in the Colombian territory, it is called Cali. Early I began playing with some gadgets like "telebolito", "intellivision", "Atari", and it was here when I started feeling interested in games and how they are being done but before start programming I've learned to play piano a guitar (I love music, can't live without it). Then I learned some programming languages such pascal with Borland Delphi, and C++ but I have to confess that it was Macromedia Flash who changed my life once we met each other in 98. I'm working with it since it didn't have support of mp3 audio format files, yes the version 3. And then together (Flash and I) started travelling around south america looking for a better job opportunity and professional development than my hometown could offer us at that moment. Special thanks to: Brazil, Costa Rica and Colombia for being a great school. At this moment I'm happily living and paying taxes in London, UK but like a salmon fish one day I will be back to procreate :)

Biggest Tetris challenge ever, some notes about a Single player tetris made in Unity3D as a good programming practice (it took only 2.5 days to make). Measure up yourself against the rest of the world by playing it.

This is a funny thing, nowadays, even in this first quarter of 2012 when I speak with developers sometimes they get surprised when I say that I am working in an iOS project using Adobe Flash, people say, ehh? Hmmm? How come? it is not supported on iOS...

hahaha, lol you made some good points considering that this article is totally oriented to indie developers. I would like to say that the games mentioned here got a serious story behind and also a magic marketing touch. Do you know for how many years was minecraft in beta version ...

Hi Joshua, thanks for your ...

Hi Joshua, thanks for your comment, as Kotaku said Some mobile games are built to be nothing but diversions, pointless timekillers for subway rides and doctors ' appointments.
