Need Massive Brain Exercise? : Puzzlerama

One of my favorite game genre of all time is puzzle. While puzzle has a lot of types, some of my preferred types are like hidden objectescape room, and some small scale puzzle. Lately, I found this game called Puzzlerama developed by Leo De Sol Games which turned out to be a mesmerizing puzzle game package and I’m still playing it up to this day during spare time.

While Puzzlerama could be downloaded for free and in full version (puzzle lovers would really love this), Leo De Sol Games offers 8 different puzzles with around 300 levels per each puzzle starting from the very simple one in the first Easy level to the most difficult one in the last of Expert level. Let’s take a look about this game’s appearance first before diving through the real features and contents..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here, you’ll have

  • Flow, connecting dots throughout the entire board, shouldn’t leave any blank spot of board unfillled
  • Blocks, arranging scrambled puzzle-piece blocks to fit in the board
  • Pipes, rotating pieces of pipes to create continuous line of pipes, higher level will have several colors to match the water resource and the destination, some need color-combining as well (pretty neat, huh?)
  • Bridges, one of my fave of all items, connecting each dots with a number on each dots and have to connect it with exact amount of ‘bridge(s)’ corresponding to the stated number per dots.
  • Shikaku, making shape per colors and each color has to be exactly in the amount of corresponding number, this one is a tricky puzzle
  • Unroll, swiping puzzle, need to arrange a certain path for the ball to travel from the green block to red block uninterrupted.
  • Unblock, just free the blue block by clearing a path for it to break free, doing this by swiping several brown blocks around it so it can clear the path
  • Tangram, another favorite of mine, arranging cut-to-pieces puzzle parts to fit in the entire block, the cuts are provided with weird angles sometimes

I don’t think I have any objections for this game. The fact that it provides me with different kind of puzzles in ton of stages are very satisfying. Another reason why I love this game is that Puzzlerama doesn’t come with scoring system and time rush, making it more enjoyable. You don’t need to think about getting low score or running out of time. Just take your time and solve the puzzle. It’s a magnificent work of puzzle game design. Plus, it’s like a workout regime for your brain to keep it sharp.

Actually I don’t mind reviewing higher-end games like for PC or handheld console, but I just don’t have the resources, hahahahaha. So I’ll stay at mobile game for a while instead, at least until I upgrade my resources. Anyway, if you have requests, opinions, or idea, leave your trail in the comment section, give like if you enjoy reading my story and experiences, and see you next time!

 

CHEERS AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

Unusual Hotplate : McB

*WARNING : PORK DETECTED!!*

No, it isn’t typo when I typed McB, but it’s really called and named that way. I don’t really know why it’s named that way, but the owner gave tagline for this place ‘McB : The Unusual Pork’.This place is newly operated, probably even under one year since they started to serve customers. They still have their promotion programs for customers who’s willing to follow their Instagram account.

Located in a an alleyway behind a CK minimarket in Babarsari, this place serves several pork variants including steak, burger, and hotplate. I didn’t try everything, but I tried hotplate instead (my friend posted a photo when he’s having lunch/dinner there couple days before I came there, and that looked so tempting hahaha). Prices are vary for each food, burger in about IDR 17k, hotplates in IDR 25k – 40k (depends on your extra toppings), and steak in about IDR 50k.

I think, I wouldn’t be full just with steak or burger, so I ordered hotplate. Rice! 😀
And apparently extra mozzarella cheese for IDR 5k. It doesn’t take too long until my hotplate came before my eyes. Here, I got a snap picture of it

Rice Hotplate (extra Cheese!) :9

I don’t know about you, but for me, just by looking at that picture, it’s a worthy yumm yummmm :9 Couple posts ago, I wrote about another hotplate stall, but with beef, and I told you that I don’t take the proper way to eat this hotplate dish, which is by mixing them all together. So I tasted one by one to fully understand each individual side dishes for the my first bites. The cheese is awesome, still stringy, have mild and perfect flavor but I noticed one thing at that time. Looks like the chef put 2 kinds of cheese, mozz and cheddar. I might be wrong but that was what I tasted back in McB. Unfortunately, I didn’t confirm that with the chef, so.. yeah, still no clue.

That brown sauce is amazing. It tasted similar to steak sauce but it’s saltier. Maybe their special recipe, but my tongue kinda met garlic and fermented beans right there. Secret recipe, let’s keep it secret, let’s just face it that it’s delicious hahaha. Everything is in great ratio : rice, pork, egg, cheese. They also provided additional seasoning like salty sauce (taste pretty salty which has strong fermented beans taste), sweet sauce (more like sweet and a-little-bit-sour sauce, perhaps it’s added with vinegar), pepper, and chili powder. They make sure you can create your own style. For every meal with eggs, I always save them  for the last, and that time with the rice hotplate, I addedthe yolk with couple drips of salty sauce and it’s wonderful.

The pork is mesmerizing. They grilled it perfectly but it doesn’t have burnt marks. Pork was tender and a little bit chewy. Not that juicy, though, but it has unique salty taste from the coated seasoning during grilling process. Last time I ate a hotplate dish, the bottom part of the rice was overburnt, but not this time and I didn’t have a single idea why. I did the same method, not mixing everything together, put the rice a little longer for taking picture( 😀 ), and yet the rice was still perfect. Love it! :3

I dare to say that I’m definitely planning to go back there and taste another dish, probably steak (if I have enough budget haha). I wonder if the steak will be juicy, tender, and melting, but for now, rice hotplate is perfect.

Next time, I might not be talking about food, but about life instead. Something that I want to share to you all. Examining how people live their lives, and I have something in mind, so stay tuned for my next experience in life, give comments if you have any ideas or opinions, leave like if you enjoy reading my post, and….

CHEERS!!
