A broad range of games, tools and challenges built for Purple Mash, 2Simple over the last 4 years.

The majority of these were coded in EaselJS a canvas framework, others were DOM based, all incorporated jQuery, Backbone, and Require elements and were fully integrated with the tracking, widgets and other elements of the 2Simple Platform.
