Trichrome, a fast-paced game of tactical pattern making.

Make large triangles out of four smaller ones. It's a simple concept, but you score more points and earn more time by extending your triangle combos into more complex shapes. A completed combo returns a newly upgraded tile, and you match those up the same way. There's a timer, and you push it back by gathering initial tiles. By making different shapes, you can unlock symmetry, mirror and kaleidoscopic bonuses and even capture other tiles to raise your score multiplier up to 20x or more. Most games take about 5-10 minutes to complete. There are 30+ achievements and 3 leaderboards to measure your skill; Game Center supported on iOS and OSX. [more inside]

Arcade-quality Pac-Man in HTML5

By "arcade-quality", I mean that I captured the graphics and sound from the Pac-Man arcade ROM (via MAME), implemented the original ghost movement strategies, and tried to get the animation as smooth as the original. This implementation includes a high-score board, and can be expanded to accommodate multiple mazes. [more inside]
