The Daily Telegraph have just launched a new Crosswords and Sudoko site called CluedUp – I built the Flex Crosswords Application. Behind the scenes it’s one of my best structured projects to date and uses the following technologies/approaches:
- Adobe Flex 3
- PureMVC MutliCore (Pipes)
- AMFPHP Remoting (for loading, saving and submitting user crossword data)
This is just phase 1 of the project. Future releases will include Sudoko, Codewords, possibly the ability to download an Adobe AIR desktop version of the system, Multiplayer – how cool would it be to be able to complete a crossword puzzle with your friend via a multiplayer version of the game?!
I think you have to register a trial account to play the game so here are a few screengrabs…
I can’t claim much involvement in this project apart from a bit of AMFPHP remoting consultancy and optimization but it’s a cool site work taking a look at, Flex side developed by my 2 co-senior Flex Devs – Paddy Keane and Martin McBrearty from my agency – World Archipelago Internet
