Okay, I have two projects: Sky bros., and Knife drop.
In sky bros., you skydive, avoiding birds for as long as you can. In knife drop food moves wildly across the screen, and you press a button to drop a knife, hopefully catching the most food you can with it, before feeding it to your hungry brother.
Which project should I work on first?

I'm rubbish at sticking to one project, I usually get bored when I get stuck, so it helps to do several projects at once so I can switch between and come back to projects later.

In other words, I probably can't help you with this.

Although skydiving through the birds sounds fun, I think that having a purpose of making sure my brother doesn't go hungry appeals to me more. Be happy to help you with concept, development and testing unless you already got it all figured out and in that case, I'd like to play it.

Sky Bros, but these all really feel like apps, not games...

I think you are getting confused. Apps, "applications", can be classified as either games or utilities; an app can be a game.

He means mobile applications, not applications in general. When I say "App" people think of an iPhone app, due to nerd-a-culturally unaware descriptions by Apple, Microsoft, et cetera. A mobile app is probably the only description of app he has learned.
You're right, just right at the wrong place.

That's what I was picking up on, people really mess this up and mix it together. Perhaps I'm just being too picky.

Perhaps. It's common that one gets slightly annoyed when others try (more or less when I say "try") his profession and utterly fail.
Then again, maybe I should get a couple of my code monkey friends and start publishing these things as mobile applications. FCB would be really cool with a touch-screen.
