Mini Metro

Looking for a simple, yet addictive game to while away your time while doing nothing on your desktop? Instead of watching YouTube, try playing Mini Metro by DinoPoloClub. Just connect the dots on your screen and transfer the various shapes as you would on the Tube, the Underground, the Metro, the MTR, the MRT and etc. Once every week, there will be available upgrades in the form of extra lines, bigger stations and tunnels. Make your choice and try to beat the game.

My best effort so far!

You lose the game when the waiting time is too long or that you failed to connect one of the stations. The number on the bottom right corner is the number of successful transfers, or you could say that’s your points total. There’s only one thing bad about this game, it is a game that’s design to make sure you lose.

If you’re really really interested, you could pre-order the game. The developers are trying to market the game on all platforms.

Boarding Passes

Having travelled extensively for the last two years, including a couple of international flights, rushing through train stations and seeing enough of the mumbo-jumbo tickets in my hands, it was time that someone did a redesign from the ground up. I think this article by Wired highlights the reasons why we must do away with the old and embrace the new, be they boarding passes or train tickets.
