PongVaders (2010)


Co-operative Arcade Game Mashup for iOS

PongVaders was a light-hearted mashup of the beloved arcade games Pong and Space Invaders by a collaboration between four friends: Cole Krumbholz and I performed design and engineering, Anna Anthropy clicked the pixel art, and Jeremiah Johnson punched buttons on a hacked Gameboy for the soundtrack. Part of the first wave of multiplayer games on the iPad, the game was a forerunner in the local multiplayer renaissance. We had nearly 100k downloads, putting us in the iPad top 20. Apple featured the game in their 'Lost In Space' app collection. We even had a few fans, including the late Kenji Eno.
