Blue Vortex Out Now

My beta release of Blue Vortex, a crazy arcade game where you fly a camper van through a whirling vortex collecting rocket fuel and dodging those pesky asteroids is now available on the Windows 8 Store. I’m hoping that this will generate some constructive feedback and give some insight of how I can progress. All views are welcome.



I wanted to create something fun, exciting and target an audience of casual gamers. The aim of the game is to collect as many molecules as possible, adding to your score and your fuel time meaning you have longer to play the game. You have to avoid the asteroids which cause your fuel time to decrease even more when hit. I plan to port this game to Windows Phone in the near future to broaden the games reach.

You can download the game if you have Windows 8 by following this link : Blue Votex


On a side note, my Karl Pilkngton – Idiot or Genius app has recently reached the 2k downloads mark which I’m thrilled about. This was released in January. If you’ve not had chance to check it out, you can download it here: Karl Pilkington – Idiot or Genius?


App and Game development is easier than you think and as a student I and many others have such amazing access to developer software/ sdks/ information and a free windows developers license. There is no reason not to get started.
