Beats of Fury Title on Steam
Beats of Fury is a mix of a rhythm game and a bullet-hell top-down shooter game. I worked with my team, Bubble Head Games, to publish this title on Steam in 2020. We developed the level editor using Java, and we used C# and Unity to develop the game. We managed the team and produced the game, creating a pipeline for creating levels. We also did level and game design.

Professional $tealer Game on Xbox Live Indie Store
This is a sidescrolling platform game. This project was accomplished by working with my team, Bubble Head Games, and was published on Xbox's Live Indie store in 2011. I managed the team and worked on the game's production and the creation of a pipeline for creating levels. We provided level and game design. The game and level editor were developed using C# and Microsoft XNA.

Tennis Table Simulation
I was hired to deliver a tennis table simulation for the national Jordanian team for pingpong, using C# and XNA along with hardware sensors to simulate real-life situations that would typically trigger the player's emotions.

Masjedi Title on iOS
Masjedi is a game that was released on iOS in 2010. It was my first published project and is a game in which you take care of a mosque and try to evolve and develop your mosque to gain points. Compete online with a leaderboard of other players. I was hired to deliver the title "Masjedi" for iOS, an online mobile game; the work included Unity, JavaScript, and PHP.
