Added #80.
7 May 2019 :
The Rainbow Adventure
with sound
Sound is not easy to implement for web game designers - that is why my first take had no sound. But after much blood, sweat and tears, I have managed it this time. This means I can seriously consider creating a web version of my very first game.
3 May 2019 :
Hands Free Jigsaws
These will only work on the Chrome browser (but not on an iPad). As you can imagine, it was quite a challenge to come up with a satisfactory way of solving a jigsaw with voice alone. I'm very excited by the end result. Maybe you will be too!

The Rainbow Adventure
I've often toyed with the idea of creating web versions of my earlier adventure games. So I tried the idea out on something small to start with.
This is it - it is a great activity for little people.
10 Apr 2019 :
Online Jigsaw Puzzles
It's been a solid three weeks but a labour of love. I have finally fulfilled a long held ambition to produce an online version of my very popular Jigsaw Program.
23 Mar 2019 :
Movie Soundtracks Quiz
Just can't get enough of these quiz ideas but this was much harder to find suitable material!
20 Mar 2019 :
Movie Iconic Lines Quiz
I had lots of fun creating this activity - check it out!
28 Feb 2019 : Oscars Quiz
Now updated to include the Oscars from 2017, 2018 and 2019
4 Feb 2019 Cyber Traveller 2
I realised that since 2013 I've embarked on several other major projects so I thought some new videos were called for. This is the first of them.
31 Jan 2019 : Cyber Traveller
In 2013 I embarked on an ambitious project - a video to convey my journey and passion for computing. The end result runs for over an hour and was intended just for family and friends but now that I've learnt how to deliver videos on my web site without using YouTube, I thought I'd share my saga with the world.
16 Jan 2019 : Bryce Tutorials
I've updated these so that they work for either Bryce 5 or 7.
12 Jan 2019 : Magic Videos
Four new videos added to my collection necessitating a new sub menu - enjoy!
2 Dec 2018 : Hexominoes
Martin Gardner's Pentominoes have been so popular that I decided to add a 6 tile version!
18 Oct 2018 : Special Menu
All the items in this menu have now been rebuilt - I even found a problem (and fixed it!) in the Oz Jigsaw!
P.S. When I checked what's next, it seems I've finished all 117 pages!
17 Oct 2018 : Site Map
Needed a break from all this re-working stuff so spent yesterday fulfilling a long held ambition to build a Site Map for Mulawa Dreaming. It's accessed by clicking on the 'Mulawa Dreaming' image on my home page.
16 Oct 2018 : Puzzles Menu
All re-worked (except Acrostics). Enjoy!
13 Oct 2018 : Chess
This is the last of the Activities Menu. Displays best in portrait mode on a phone and landscape mode elsewhere. Was pleasantly surprised at how well this app works!
29 Sep 2018 : Martin Gardner
Another section re-worked and ready to hit phones & tablets all over the world!
27 Sep 2018 : Online Games
All now re-worked also. Some turned out better than others on a phone but all are playable.
25 Sep 2018 : Peter's Brain Games
All the Brain Games have now been re-worked. Quite a big undertaking - I'm pleased to have finished this marathon!
13 Sep 2018 : Website move complete.!
It's been a rugged two days but I've just fixed the "second last problem". Please let me know when you find the one I've missed!
6 Sep 2018 : Apps Menu
Just tried them all on my new iPhone. Not perfect in some cases but still playable.
28 Aug 2018 : Tutorials Menu
The Tutorials Section, too, is now complete. Also I've ordered an iPhone so I can really check how well I'm achieving my aim.
19 Aug 2018 : Magic Menu
My Magic Section is now completely re-worked. This entry replaces all the prevous Magic entries on this page.
11 Aug 2018 : Peter's Brain Games 2
A new section for sharing some of my best ideas for taking you on a mathematical journey that I promise you will enjoy!
6 Aug 2018 : Mulawa Dreaming
As I write at least 60% of people are browsing on a mobile device so I've decided to work on my website to make it appear at its best on as many devices as possible. I've started with my home page.
29 Jul 2018 : Turtle Play
The Logo turtle was invented in 1967. I still love it and I've decided to re-visit it using modern web technology. A great trip down memory lane and a great workout on the new web stuff!
4 Jul 2018 : Alpha 25
This game was inspired by the iPad app, LetterPress.
My main reason for copying it was the challenge of creating a satisfactory computer opponent.
24 Jun 2018 : Word Sleuth
Not sure where I got the idea for this one, but it sure tests 'the little grey cells'!
There is a mystery 6 letter word and 6 clues to help you find it.
There are over 2,600 words awaiting you!
14 May 2018 : Colour Yahtzee
Based on the popular game of Yahtzee but it uses colours instead of numbers or letters.
I'm trying something new here - the info button produces helpful instructions which change as the game progresses.
9 May 2018 : Countries
How well do you know your countries?
45 chances to find out!
28 Apr 2018 : Alpha 12
Very proud of this one. As far as I know it's completely original.
It is inspired by Scrabble but I find it more challenging and, of course, it has the advantage of being 'single player'.
21 Apr 2018 : Word Puzzles
I've decided to create web versions of some of my favourite word puzzles - enjoy!
15 Jan 2018 : Scratch Adventures
Late in 2017 I started to take a serious interest in Scratch.
Initially I had considered it mainly for young people but I gradually realised that it was surprisingly powerful.
19 Nov 2017 : Chess
I was keen to create a web chessboard for just myself and a friend.
It worked out so well that I decided to develop it into a public offering.
Not as fancy as the others but very simple in its presentation.
24 Jul 2017 : Oz Movies
There are 53 Australian movies in my database.
This quiz randomly selects 10 images for you to identify.
17 May 2017 : Martin Gardner
His Mathematical column in the Scientific American back in the 60's brought me hours of pleasure - here I revisit some of my favourites.
Looking Back Over the Years
I hope to keep adding to this part of the website. It would be great to have some record of past milestones.
