Star Seed on iOS
Recently, Second Avenue released their first game on the iOS platform. Called Star Seed, it's a successor to the Star Formation Game previously released on Discover Magazine's website. It was a great project that I had the pleasure of being both lead designer and one of the key programmers on.

We worked hard on it and are incredibly proud of how it came out. Please check out the App Store description below.

Welcome to Star Seed, a game about star formation! In 2009, Second Avenue developed a web based game for Discover magazine, bringing the supernovas discussed in Prof. Adam Frank?s article to life.

Newly formed stars rip apart giant clouds of particles from which they form. In the game, the user must control the impact of these explosions through the use of seed stars, which maximize star formation in the cloud before combined supernova blast waves turn the cloud to shreds. As new seed stars are dropped into the cloud, the user must try and corral the gas and raise the concentration of cloud material until gravity forces collapse and a new star forms.

If you were addicted to our original Star Formation game?you will love our latest version!


The game was developed using Xcode and Objective-C. It runs on the Cocos2D framework. The environment was a pleasure to develop on and I look forward to my next project.

Please check it out! You can find it in the App Store.
