This is an archive for some programs and games I programmed along the way, some over 20 years old. Mostly for "historical" reasons, I keep them available here. The programs on this page are all free, except for Jumbo Timer. I cannot guarantee that they work on the latest Windows versions or at all and there will be no more updates and no support. Please use them at your own responsability.
JUMBO TIMERJumbo Timer can run as stopwatch, count down or alarm clock. Resizable windows with title bar, time display and info bar (optional). Alarms can be with or without a popup and can be silent or with an alarm sound. The timer windows can be cloned.

MAGIC LINESWindows 10 universal game app, for both Windows desktop / tablet devices and for Windows smartphones. Improved version of the well-known 5-In-A-Row game, but more entertaining and a bit harder to play, with joker and bomb items to make it more interesting and challenging. Smooth animations and polished appearance.

PAC WORLDPacWorld 1.0 was released in 2000 - version 2.0 in 2020 and it is available as a Windows 10 app. With the original graphics from the year 2000, but enhanced, with faster gameplay and three difficulty levels, so it is fun to play for both kids and adults. Version 3.0 was released in 2023 and is also available as an Android app (search for "PacWorld" in the Google Game Store) or play it on this website or at Itch.io.

1001 (CARD GAME)A very nice card game I used to play with my mom and my sister, when I was a kid. There used to be versions for the Palm Pilot (who does remember it?) and the iPad, but they are both no longer available. Here are the rules for 1000 and 1001
BLOCK GAMEA nice, addictive game in the Color Tetris / Dr. Mario style. Move four in a row with the same color to make them disappear. The screenshot shows one of my best results, played in level 5 without automatic increase. Don Crowder, a dear cyberfriend of mine, reached an incredible 71,586 points highscore!
CONCENTRATION GAMEThe well-known, simple board game for kids and adults alike. You need concentration and a good short-term memory to play it. There are 9 different themes (sets of pictures) to choose from.
I programmed a new version in Godot in 2024! You can play it online on this website or on Itch.io
KALEIDOSCOPEEnjoy beautiful mandala-style ornaments with this Kaleidoscope program. You can let the shapes rotate, draw only outlines, change the angle and create an "explode effect". It's amazing how many different scenes you can get from just 6 different shapes (square, rhombus, triangles, circle and star).
