AlgoCrunch is a small, family owned software company with a focus on producing iOS apps.  Martin is the president and lead software engineer.  Alysha, his wife, is the lead designer and graphic artist.  Sean, a personal friend, is also a designer.  AlgoCrunch was formed in early 2010, where the first year and a half were spent building high quality internal tools specifically for development and design on the iOS platform.  Using these tools, our first venture into the app store was a small scale arcade game, called “Aqua Burst”.  Since then, we have been working on “Word Fusion” (coming soon), as well as several “Proof of Concepts” for future ideas.  Expect a lot more from AlgoCrunch in 2012, we have some great games in the works!
