[prMac.com] Coldbrook, Canada - Just last month Daniel released his first app, Mine Sweeper II. His game takes you through 10 levels that get progressively harder. Passing the fourth stage becomes pro gamers' pride to be able to accomplish. Daniel warms you up, and then gives you a challenge. His incredible graphics design keeps the game engaging, as does the "electro thud" background music.
Most boys stop fighting when they turn 16. However Daniel, 26, is still arguing with his brother Steve as to who is the best crack at Mine Sweeper. Dan's parents made him and his brother memorize Bible verses to play on the computer when they were little. Daniel, the lousy memorizer had to step aside and let his brother take over the computer. His brother, Steve, is "the best memorizer I know," says Daniel.
In a final effort to get even with Steve, Daniel made a Mine Sweeper II app for the iPhone that boasts having the best graphics and challenge... better than most Mine Sweepers. The game uses Open Feint to rank players based on the time it takes them to complete each level.
Daniel's Mine Sweeper has been featured on Harvey's iPhone App Cafe and Mobers. Harvey says "all in all, [it's] a simple and very effective game".
Playing Mine Sweeper has brought Daniel closer to his brother, opening up his heart to the fact that his younger brother has always been there for him, despite their differences.
Looking to the future, Daniel is looking forward to creating more games, definitely not with the same spite that inspired him in the first place with this one.
