16-year old genius launches second game on Apple’s App Store

Today, the self-taught game developer based in Valladolid, 200km North of Madrid, released his second game on Apple’s iOS format. Amazingly, Manuel programmed Infinity Field for iPad in his spare time, despite a demanding homework schedule.

His father bought him an iPhone in 2009. He quickly set to work learning how to program for the mobile platform and launched his first game, Abstract War 2.0, in February 2010.

The new game has been published by Chillingo, whose recent releases include the App Store mega-hit, Cut The Rope, and essential man-app from Man Vs Wild survival expert, Bear Grylls: Bear Essentials.

Manuel said:“I’ve always loved games and when my dad gave me an iPhone, I thought it would be fun to try making a game for it. It was difficult because schoolwork has to come first, but it’s an amazing feeling to see something you’ve created appearing on the App Store.”
