Dot Popper
An android and IOS game coded with a java library called Libgdx.

It is an arcade style dot popping game that is fun for the whole family. Get ready for some fun! Dot Popper is an exciting game of speed and accuracy where you must race against the clock to hit as many green dots as possible...while avoiding those pesky red dots!

Each time you pop a green dot, you get 1 point plus 1 extra second on the clock...but that green dot turns red! Watch out...each red dot you pop takes 2 seconds off the clock and reduces your score by 2. Have fun...and get ready to pop some dots!

Travel Scavenger hunt
A native android app that allows a family to play a fun version of eye-spy on their phones.

Whether you are traveling near or far, Travel Scavenger Hunt is sure to be tons of fun! The game prompts you to look out for things such a "yellow school bus" or "a red barn," and the first person in your group to locate that item gets a point...until you have a winner!

Features: - 500+ items to find!
- Great for road trips and families!
- Easy to use
- Free!
