Programmer Needed-Will Pay Decent $$$

Hello,

I am looking for someone with knowledge of objective-c for an app I have been making. I have all of the sounds, and images needed, I just need someone to actually program the app for me. If you contact me I will email you a zip of the files and sounds.

The game is called Gem Defenders. There will be 3 ways to Play Easy, Medium and Hard. The goal of the game is to defend from falling gems. You do this by flicking gems at other gems of the same color and shape. You will have you dock of shapes at the bottom, and when you see a gem falling down the screen flick the same color at it to destroy it. If a gem reaches the bottom you will lose some life. As the levels increase there will be more gems falling faster.

If you are interested please email me at jsappsinc@gmail.com. I will be willing to pay at 50-100 USD for a job well done.

NOTE- Not only will you earn the money you will also be credited as the programer in the apps credit screen.

-Jake

You might want to remove "Decent $$$" from the title then...

Cool idea, but your going to want to re-work you budget.

Programming isn't cheap. For a decent job, your going to be paying at least $22/h for the programming + more for art.

lets start a bidding war

even $22/hr is low - unless you have a 6+ month contract. keep in mind that working as a contractor means you may have periods of no-work which means you need to charge a little extra to cover the times you are not working. for short term projects, like less than a month - you are looking at around $100 per hour; make it three months and it drops to $65 per hour.. six months... $50 per hour.. etc.. when you start hitting $50 per hour - you are talking about standard salary rates..

most consultancy companies; at least where i come from charge $150+ per hour.
