Jools' gaming career spanned some 20 years starting in the early days of gaming "messing around" with machine code on the 6502-based Oric 1 and has programmed almost every home computer and console since.
The most prominent game of his career is Cannon Fodder, which he co-designed and programmed. Cannon Fodder 2 followed and, later in his career, he converted it onto the Game Boy platform (a project he initiated). This conversion included an FMV player, which he both designed and programmed, capable of streaming digital video and audio. The Game Boy conversion received a BAFTA nomination for sound and high review scores, including 93% from Official Nintendo Magazine and 96% from Nintendo Power.
