Markoshiki

Lately, I’ve been working on a web app to learn more about JavaScript, jQuery and other technologies that web developers use. This app is available as a web app, on iPhones/iPads and on Android.

Markoshiki is a logic puzzle game, similar to Sudoku, Futoshiki, etc. The user needs to fill the numbers missing from a board, split in four quadrants, which already has some numbers in it.
The rules are simple:

  • Numbers grow in a clockwise direction following the arrows.
  • Consecutive numbers are in the same row or column as the previous number, but in different quadrants.
  • The numbers that are already in the board when you start the game cannot be modified.

For the next version I will focus on making the iOS and Android apps look more native, improve the flow of inserting notes (it’s a bit cumbersome now) and use better the available screen space (including support for landscape mode).

Please play online or install the apps.
If you have any feedback, please let me know at markoshiki@markoshiki.com.

Bye bye Bromium, hello Undo

In March 2015, I joined Bromium to work on a very cool security product. Unfortunately, my project was put on hold and I was not really interested in the new one, so I decided to leave.

In a couple of weeks, I will start working for Undo on their reversible debugger.
Imagine how cool it is to just wait to reproduce a bug and then step backwards to see what caused it instead of spending hours in a debugger hoping for a bug to happen! And all of this without affecting performance much!
