Games I have played: Sugar Blast

Recently, I have played a game made by Rovio Entertaiment, the Angry Bird maker, called Sugar Blast. Following you can see the main scene of the game. Personally, I really like the art style of the game especially those cute mini figures.



I have not found a game very interesting with challenges such as the "choco challange" show in the following pictures. The challenges usually last several days and the top 3 will get gold, silver, and bronze medals. The player will get match with players of similar levels so that the race is more exciting.

Beside the challenges, there is also event such as caching rainbow candies or stars which will get the player different in game rewards.


In addition, a player can create a team or join another team created by other player.


Below is a video on a demo play. In the demo, I have played a level using special skills such as the magic guy to re-arrange the layout and the "powers-up" to bomb a large area. There is also "relax gummy" who can pick up one item on the game screen. Also, the demo showed that a player can get extra moves by watching an advertisement - only available once per day.



And finally is the video demo of getting a box of rewards.

My books review: "The retrospective handbook"

Overview: The retrospective handbook is a useful collection of tips for preparing and running retrospective for agile teams. The central point of facilitating a retrospective is the preparation. All the details - even the smallest details such as how much paper is available or what the colours of the using pens - play an important role in running a successful retrospective. In such preparation, the most important preparation is the relationship. It requires team members to have high trust with each other to address any problems in great details and find the most suitable solution for those problems. My impression: The tips for running remote retrospective would be really useful for anyone especially startups in my opinion. All the startups I have worked for so far have had some foreign teams either external or internal to save operating money. In addition, there are a lot of remote work to save office renting space and almost all of those startups followed the agile method.

My books review: Money for the rest of us

Overview: The "Money for the rest of us" book is a list of 10 questions serve as a guideline to invest. It is light book with not many pages and can be read during commute time. The book does not require audiences to have any special knowledge. My impression: The author, Mr. David, is very friendly and patient to answer my questions. The 10 questions are greatly explained by the author, and I think they provide a good starting point. However, I think anyone who wants to invest should build their own checklist and a general guideline for different situations. When a general guideline is in place, the decisions need to respect the guideline in order to make consistent decision. Consistency , in my opinion, is the most important in the long run as it provide information for constant feedback and improvements. Overall, I think this is a good book that helps improving my decision making process. - ninjahoahong

Scripting with Java

I think Java is quite verbose for scripting. However, it can also be fun. I wrote a very simple experiment of ls command. You should try it out. Download file ls and chmod +x ls then you can run ./ls . There are no flags/options supported.😆 - ninjahoahong
