Hidi Ho. Originally, I sold some of these programs though the few bucks a month I was making wasn't worth the aggravation of keeping records, filing state sales tax, quarter statements, et cetera. Bottom line, I stripped the site to bare minimum and made the files public. Mostly, they're considered casual games - nothing mind boggling, just something to do. (Windows Platform)

*Oh, if one happens to download the hangman game, the clown graphics were excellently created by our own Remdul. ;)

Any card games? I've been checking the available ones these days... back then in the late 80s/early 90s I had programmed quite a few on my ATARI 800XL and I've been considering porting them to the PC now.
(In fact, I've been considering a Trespasser-themed deck, but still don't have the right idea)

I'm quite enjoying the "Do the Math" game. :D Must have hit a like spot! The others look very interesting, too.

Yea, that sounds like a pretty nifty idea. :) Trespasser card deck, I'd like to see that.

Good to hear. I've had a few people email me about not understanding order of operation and use of brackets, but hey, that's math, man. ;)

I can only speak for myself, of course, but anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Once I have a decent idea of how I want the program to work, I work on the skin and other graphics before I even begin coding. From there, I get all the buttons and controls operating, then I start working on the actual functional code. I imagine a more experienced programmer could cut the time I use up in half.
