Amino Acids – 1000 Apps – M-G – Widgets

Thinking about quizzes and recycling What Color is This Monster?, I came up with an idea of tests about the biologically important class of chemicals, amino acids. I always was reluctant and skeptical about chemistry apps. They cannot be blockbuster hits. There are maybe thousands rather than millions of users who can potential download these apps. Moreover, I wanted to show that I can do something outside my field of expertise. The fact that I was trained as a chemist doesn’t automatically mean that all I’m working on has to deal with chemistry.

Forgotten Games Started – Blog Housekeeping – Choosing Keywords

BeVampired became a first installation for the Forgotten Games project. I played this game about a year and a half ago and found it quite addictive. So it was naturally to write first about the game I know well. The plan behind the project was to start the day with downloading a game nobody heard or wrote about, play it for an hour or so, and then write a review summing up my thoughts and impressions.

First Followers – Game Center – Something Russian – Useful Links – Monsters Gardeners

I got started reading several WordPress “getting started” manuals. What I like about WP is the community.

I’m fine with checking the WP Reader daily, and getting e-mails about every new post would be unnecessary.

WCiTM? – Meet Asmolgamrus – AdMob Mediation – and some personal stuff

The major achievement today is the transfer of What Color is This Monster? from its blogspot home to this site. I played briefly with WordPress and I’m impressed how better it is than blogspot for my goals. The heroes of the game (Lamper, Clocker, Stump-axer, Visitor, and Dragoner) now inhabit the top bar instead of the default picture with old books.

Big Plans about Game Development Blog

This is the first post of my developer blog. I’ll try to write daily except on the dates when I’m traveling or super busy, or just don’t have much to say.

Today I registered asmolgam.com. This site will be a main link for all my apps and games. Besides the developer blog, I plan to review some simple free games about which nobody else is writing.
