Before I joined the computer security industry in the early 1990s, I used to write computer games for the Sinclair ZX81, Memotech MTX512, Prime Minicomputer, and IBM PC. Here you can find out about some of them:

Jacaranda Jim – DOS text adventure game. (Either play it online, or download). Check out reviews here.

Humbug – a better DOS text adventure game. (Either play it online, or download). Check out reviews here, including the definitive in-depth review by Joe Pranevich on The Adventure Gamer blog.

Blox – a shameless Tetris rip-off with a nice Boss key.

Wibbling Wilf – a “bad trip” spin on Pacman, involving leaky jam sandwiches and harmonicas. Check out reviews here.


In 1992, Red Herring magazine interviewed me, and published a couple of articles about my games. If you’re curious you can check them out below (click for larger versions).
