Infinitroid – Roguelike Metroidvania

Infinitroid is a solo indie project that is still being developed on by Luke. It is going to be put into Early Access soon.  So far, there is only one character, around 5 types of weapons, 7 types of enemies and 2 zones. However, it is planned to have more playable characters, enemies, bosses, obstacles and more. The finished version is planned for release on Steam and possibly consoles.


Infinitroid is a Roguelite Metroidvania game. It takes inspirations from The Binding of Isaac, the original NES Metroid, Super Metroid, Spelunky, and many others.


The player starts in an alien hive with a blaster and rocket launcher. Exploration for resources and weapon parts are vital for survival and to find out what is threatening your home colony.


At the top right, you can see the health of your character. You start at 2 out of 3 red heart containers filled. So far there is only one way I know of to gain more heart containers. As expected, when your red hearts drop to 0 from enemies, which deal 0.5 heart or shield damage, you die. Shields and red hearts(0.5 or 1) can be found to help you survive. Shields does not change depending on the red heart capacity.

As inferred from the lore, you start with a blasterImage result for infinitroid that is only capable of defending you from early enemies like grubsImage result for infinitroid.  Along the way, modifiers can be found in red item boxes(not the official name) or in secrets. The boxes look the one above with a red glow on top. The modifiers look something like this . This however, is not a normal modifier, it is a rare one that I have only seen appear in secret rooms. Modifiers takes up certain amount of energy, with the most common ones being 0.5. These energy are provided by batteries, which can be found in secret rooms and blue “item boxes”. You can see the batteries below the hearts. You start with 2 batteries with 1 used by the blaster.

Below the batteries are the credits you own, it only shows after you pick one up. It looks like a purple plasma ball inside a blue plasma ball.

Below the batteries are rockets, rockets can be used to kill enemies or open shops, treasure rooms and item boxes. Killing multiple rockets with one rocket can give you a bonus rocket. You switch weapons with “q”.

Below the rockets is the minimap. It shows rooms one room away from rooms you discovered. You can enlarge it with “m’. It is also the screen that shows up if you use the teleporter.

Below the minimap is the items you have. Items are one use and are powerful, though not necessary for completion.

Below the items is the weapon that you are currently using.

Finally, below weapon is the permanent upgrades you own.


The following contains spoilers, skip to opinions to not spoil it.

Secret: These rooms usually are joined to by breakable walls or fake walls. Over my play time, most of them contain heart or shields or batteries.

Brutal secrets: There are only one per world and usually require all upgrades to beat, at the end is usually a 2x damage modifier that consumes 0 battery

Challenge rooms are special rooms with many rewards at the end. So far I have encountered 3, 2 requires you to kill enemies and 1 requires parkour. The rewards are usually health, rockets and credits.

Treasure rooms: they normally contain permanent upgrades required for particular worlds to get into the next area. However, they may contain items instead. From what I noticed, those that require rockets to open, always contains items.

Boss rooms: The first and second bosses are always the same. They are indicated in the minimap and a special worm like entrance.

Zone 1 rooms: They can be skipped and can require certain upgrades to progress through. Most of them contains enemies.

Zone 2 rooms: The other doors closes once you enter and will only reopen when all enemies are cleared. Most of them contain enemies.

Shops: Most, if not all requires 5 rockets to open, they can sell items, upgrades, health, rockets and even credits. They can be brought with credits.

Teleporter: They contain a teleporter which can teleport you to rooms you already cleared, saving time.


Controls: The controls are complicated and hard to control at first, but once you get the hang of it, the controls can feel very fluent and nice to use.

Content: Content and difficulty was not enough for me to replay this game a lot, but it is not the full content and the difficulty curve feels fair.

Graphics: They seem nice to look at, my only complain, if any, would be that it is too dark. But there is an option to adjust the brightness. The sounds are also okay.

Overall, I feel like this game is worth a try even before the full version and there is no reason not to since it is currently free.

Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA

Image result for Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490UA


As seen from the picture above, it is very slim and fits a 14-inch screen as compared to Asus Zenbook 3, which has a 12.5-inch screen. It also has a Windows 10 Pro operating system, a fingerprint scanner for security and is lightweight and portable, ideal for a business laptop. Having an Intel Core i7-7500U, it is fast and good for general usage, such as surfing the net and streaming HD videos. The design also looks good and is liked by many.


However, the shallow keyboard is not suitable for long-term typing and it is not suitable for gaming, even with an Intel Core i7-7500U. Similar to the Asus Zenbook 3, it only has 3 USB-C ports, with 2 of them being Thunderbolt. Fotunately, Asus kindly includes a few adapters, such as HDMI out and USB-A port. A standard non-touch 1,920 x 1,080-resolution screen is the only option available and the speakers are not loud, but headphones should solve the problem. On a similar tests with other laptops like LG Gram, it lasts only 7.5 hours, while others like the MacBook lasts 10.5 hours. It also costs $2600 SGD, which is why some of these are considered bad.

Specs that are not mentioned:

Storage: 512GB SSD

Graphics: 128MB dedicated Intel HD Graphics 620.

PC memory: 16GB DDR3 SDRAM 2,133MHz

Networking: 802.11ac Wi-Fi; IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n , Bluetooth 4.1

My opinion:

I feel like this is not really a good value for money but is not bad for general use. There will probably be better alternatives but, maybe not on its style, so if you really want it and can afford it, go ahead. HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 is a laptop that has a similar cost at $2800 SGD, which excels at different areas and is also not really worth the cost.

As shown on the picture and implied with the name, the laptop is very flexible and can bend 360 degrees. Because of this, it can be used as a tablet by rotating it by 360 degrees. To support this , it will automatically switch to tablet mode. This mode is useful for when you are lazy as you can lie down when using it. It also does not heat up a lot, meaning that your lap is safe from burning, except for some cases when charging.


The laptop is also surprisingly fast with a core i5, in fact, it is faster than some core i7s. To prove my point, it can run ‘Overwatch’, a game with a high demand on specs, with barely any lag. It also has Windows 10 and is quite light, making it very portable. It has 2 usb ports, 1 usb type-c and the changer port is on the right. Touchscreen is also included, as expected with a laptop that can function as a tablet.


However, it has a smaller screen, so most web pages cannot be fully shown. This is usually not annoying as there is barely any content at the right most of the screen. But when it is, it can be very annoying, luckily, it can be solved by simply changing the zoom size on chrome, or changing the screen resolution to 80%, which, on the other hand, might be more annoying than before. It is also quite expensive at $2,800 SGD


I think that this is a very good laptop, but the price is a bit too much and you can probably get a better laptop with that price, for example, one with a core i7 and bigger screen.

Realm of the Mad God (bullet hell mmo)

Rotmg or RotMG is the short form of the game


Wild Shadow & Spry Fox

The game was created in 2010 and was launched in 2011 by Wild Shadow Studios and Spry Fox. During this period, which players refer to as “Wild Shadow Era”, people were satisfied with the game and was very free to play friendly, where the main currency was available to all.


Unfortunately, because of this, Wild Shadow was forced to sell the game as they were running out of funds. Kabam saw potential in it and bought it. Most players consider this era  bad overall, although it does has its strengths. Kabam implemented arguably the best and only true endgame content. However, Kabam does  not deserve all the credit as, an ordinary player was the one who gave both the idea and the code. This was mainly the reason why many players stayed through the long time Kabam abandoned the game. Now, to the important cons (too many cons): after Kabam came, they turned this once co-operative(co-op) game into a pay to win and money-grubbing game. If that was not enough, they introduced pets. Pets enabled a single player to be stronger than 6-7 players combined. Pets were what destroyed the co-op aspect of this game. For context, it used to be about survivability, helping other players out and co-op. Now? its about who can get the most and deny the most loot from others. Have I mentioned about the amount of hackers? Adding that would be too long.

Deca Games

The game was at the verge of dying, but then, came Deca Games. Deca Games is an indie company that was formed for RotMG. The main team is made out of former Kabam employees. They started out by making everyone like them by giving away free stuff. They then continued by addressing the hackers (basically almost none now). Finally, they start adding more content and fix kabam’s many mistakes, like the imbalanced economy. However, a lot of content are new cosmetics( how they intend to make money without making RotMG pay to win), but there are also some quality content and quality of life changes that are quite frequent. Events such as Cinco De Mayo are also seldom made. They are also being more generous than Kabam during the annual ‘Month of the Mad God’ event. They also listen to the community and host contests on Reddit for players to win prizes.

Basic mechanics:

Upon starting the game, there should be a tutorial about the very basics. Like controls, shooting and looting. Before I get started, you can change the controls by pressing “o”.

One of the main aspect of the game is permanent-death(perma-death), so prepare to rage, but prepare to come back afterwards.

Start out at the beach( where scorpions are at) and slowly move inland. They will drop some bags where loot like weapons, abilities, armour and rings can make you stronger.

Guild Hall

On the right is the UI where your mini map(3), name(4), nexus icon(4), fame/experience/level(5), health(6), mana(6), inventory/stats/pet info(8), friends icon(12) and nearby players(11). On the top is the stars(1), obtained by getting fame requirements on classes, guild and guild position(1), fame(2) and gold(2). The chat is at the bottom left(10). Go here for more information.

The four slots are slots for weapon, ability, armour and ring. The weapons, abilities and armours are different for different class, which will be explained later.


Health(Life)-If it reaches -1 you die

Mana(Mana)- You use this to use your abilities


Dexterity(Dex)-Rate of fire

Speed(Spd)-Movement speed

Defense(def)-reduces damage taken by the amount you have until 85% reduction of the bullet’s damage

Vitality(Vit)-The rate in which you regenerate Health

Wisdom(Wis)-The rate in which you regenerate Mana

These stats can be increased permanently by leveling up and drinking potions, referred to as pots. There are maximum amount of each stats that are different for every class. They can be increased by gear and temporary boosts such as gumballs and tinctures above the maximum.

Update: Some greater potions are now added again. They give twice as much stat increases.

Classes:Classes Unlocking System

There are 14 classes, each with their own special abilities. On the top is which class you have to level to 20 to unlock each specific class. Getting each class to level 20 is the best way to unlock all classes.

You start with the wizardWizard, the highest dps class, besides warriorWarrior, as it has the most att and dex of all classes, 75 each and its ability is the spellFire Spray Spell, commonly referred to spell bomb because of its high potential damage from 20 damaging shots that shoot from the cursor when used.

Next is PriestPriest, arguably the best class for beginners, due to its abilityHealing Tome, the tome, it instantly heals the player, the draw back is it’s dps with the wandFire Wand, which deals low damage.

The bow and leather classes:

ArcherArcher and huntressHuntress, uses the bow, arguably the most powerful type weapons. They have exactly the same stats and highest attack in the game. They use the quiverMagic Quiver and trapHunting Trap respectively, which slows or paralyzes depending on the tier. Recommended when you have the Doom Bow(Dbow)Doom Bow or Coral Bow(Cbow)Coral Bow.

 The dagger and leather classes:

RogueRogue, AssassinAssassin, TricksterTrickster. The daggerSteel Dagger classes all have 75 max speed and 75 max dexterity. Dagger is a middle-ranged weapon with 5.6 range. With the cloakCloak of Shadows, which makes you invisible and not be noticed by enemies, poisonCentipede Poison, which deals damage over time, prismDecoy Prism, which lets you teleport and create a decoy enemies will treat as a real player. The rogue is a solo class, having lesser players around you is better. Assassin is the class where you can deal damage without in danger of the target. Trickster is one of the hardest class to play as its ability is the hardest to use efficiently and has a high skill floor and ceiling. Recommended if you like to stay at medium range and being the fastest

The sword and heavy armour classes:

KnightKnight,  PaladinPaladin and WarriorWarrior. They all have the  highest max health in the game, at 770. The swordShort Sword is a short range and high damage weapon. The Knight is the most defensive class, with 40 max defense and the ability, the shieldWooden Shield, stunsGold Five Pointed Star enemies and make then unable to shoot and grants bonus defense. Considered as the easiest class to play and well known for its infamous “Lel XD”. The Paladin uses the seal to healRed Cross, increase max healthHP increase and increase damageSword dealt of himself and others. The Warrior, uses the helmet, giving berserkRed Sword to all and speedyGreen Up Arrow to self. With 75 attack, berserk giving 25% more dexterity, and high damage of swords, he has one of the most dps in the game. Most of the time warriors are incredibly selfish and will only buff itself to guarantee the most loot for himself, which is incredibly easy due to the buffs’ small radius.

The staff and robe classes:

The WizardWizard, NecromancerNecromancer and MysticMystic. The staffEnergy Staff is a medium to high damage with long range and 2 shots. All of them have the highest max mana, at 385 and above average wisdom. The Necromancer uses a skullNecrotic Skull as its ability, healing based on the amount of damage dealt in the radius of its ability, like a tomeHealing Tome. Recommended for beginners who wants dps. The mystic uses a orbStasis Orb, which stasis and cursesCurse at the higher tiers. Hard to master and most of the time only useful for end-game dungeons and trolling.

The wand and robe classes:

Thee PriestPriest and Sorcerer Sorcerer. They use the wandFire Wand, the highest ranged weapon in the game, but the lowest damage. The sorcerer uses the scepterLightning Scepter, which deals damage to multiple targets, reducing the damage done each time. Recommended for long range combat against bosses such as Oryx.

The katana and leather class:

The lonely Ninja Ninja, uses the katanaRusty Katana, a short range weapon that is shorter than a dagger but longer than a sword and pierces. Due to its leather armour and short range katana, it is a difficult class to play. The starBasic Star, gives you speedyGreen Up Arrow when you hold down space bar or shift click, which does not stop until you shift click again. Letting go of space bar shoots a star dealing a lot of damage. This class is recommended for players looking for a challenge, hit and run or when you have the UT weapon, Doku No KenDoku No Ken.


Brown BagPink BagPurple BagEgg BasketCyan BagBlue Bag White BagBoosted Bag

There are a total of 8 types of bags: brown, pink, purple, cyan, blue, white and red. Brown and pink is not soulbound, meaning that they can be seen by other players and they can take whatever is inside.

Brown BagBrown bags are mainly consumables that are such as health potion(not potion of life) and mana potions.

Pink BagPink bags contains low tiered gears like tiers( tiers 1-6 for weapons and armours, 1-2 for abilities, and 1 for rings( higher tiers are better)).

Purple BagPurple and above are soulbound, meaning that they can only be seen by you and no one else. They usually drop tiers 7-9 for weapons and armours, 3-4 for abilities, and 2-4 for rings.

Egg BasketEgg baskets contain pet eggsCommon Pet Egg, which is explained in a later part of this post.

Cyan BagCyan bags contain all other better gear.

Blue BagBlue bags contain stat potions.

 White BagThe legendary rng bag is the White bag, they are very rare and drop special items according to the enemy.

Boosted BagRed bags drop when you use loot drop or tier potions or lucky clovers. The bags overwrite each other in this order: Red>White>Blue>Cyan>Egg>Purple>Pink>Brown

EDIT: New update! There are now new bags.

Golden BagGolden bags contain treasures and marksMark of the Puppet Master.

Orange BagOrange bags contain skins Mini SphinxMini Sthenoand ST itemsNectar Crossfire.

Red BagRed bags contains T13 weapons, T14 armors, and T6 rings. T13 weapons and T14 armors are added in the Lost Halls update.

Boosted BagsBoosted bags now correspond to the colour of the bags.


There are a lot of items and they are self explanatory when you mouse over them. If you are unsure about what it does, you can go to                eye-bigrealmeye to check.

Character slots and Vaults:

Char Slot UnlockerVault Chest Unlocker

The amount of character slots is the amount of characters you can have alive at once. Vaults are chests which let you store items which do not disappear when you die. These can only be obtained by paying or when Deca Games decides to give them out, most of the time during an event like MotMG. If you are paying, it is best to wait for deals such as Super Ample Packs where you can get more value for money.


The most over powered thing in RotMG. They have various abilities and the most significant two are ‘Heal’ and ‘Magic Heal’. The abilities heal and increase your mana(not maximum) respectively, they get more efficient every level. There are 5 rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Legendary and Divine. To make sure  you do not waste your time with your pet, you can go here. Each family starts with several types of first abilities, except for humanoid, which is always heal and therefore the best eggCommon Pet Egg.Pet Fusing

EDIT: New Update! Pet stones changes your pet’s family and skin permanently.



Using flash projector is arguably one of best ways to reduce lag, close to Steam. Steam is a lot easier to set up and they offer a free pack, however, Steam is known to crash when playing RotMG, unlike flash projector, which is harder to make work. A step by step tutorial here. Another way to reduce lag is to go to the options and turn off ‘Draw shadows’, ‘Hardware acceleration’ and disabling player projectiles. In options, you can also assign a key to open the stats of the game, such as the memory and frames per second. RotMG is prone to memory leak, which causes a lot of lag, so you can use the stats to know when a memory leak is about to occur.



If you do this I have lost all respect for you… unless it is a weird game like Growtopia that is literally about merching. Merching in RotMG means buying low and selling high. This is most of the time used by players who have no skill to actually play the game and have no access to their mom’s credit card to pay their way to being “pro”. Basically, go here to see the offers and gauge the price, although most of them are overpriced(because most of them are also merchers).

Paying to win:

There are 2 types, the stupid one is buying gear from the nexus shop, the smarter ones are investing into their pet or Character and Vault slots(Lasts forever) and buy mostly great deals such as the Cinco De Mayo packs and Super Ample Packs.

Fame farming:

People with no life who farm for fame in the godlands( a currency mostly only used to feed pets) 24/7 and think that they are pro.

PPE and NPEs:

PPE stands for Pet Player Experience, you start with no gear except t 0 weapon and ability, you can’t trade or get free items. The goal is to get 8/8(8 out of 8 stats maxed) and good gear. Most of time it is very easy as pets are over powered, but people still think that they are good when they complete one using the easiest class(lel xD ppe btw). NPE stands for New Player Experience, which is the same thing as PPE except no pets are allowed. This is mostly played for fun as it increases the difficulty of the easy game.

Actually playing the game:

The best way to improve is to learn from your mistakes and invest in pets as they can carry you. After having a good pet, preferably at least a rare, you can farm godlands and certain dungeons for pots to max your character and store items in vault in case you die for the next character.

This game has kept me entertained for 5 years now, so I recommend it, although it is not for the faint of heart.

Apple Macbook (2016)

It was designed to be small and lightweight but, in the process, it lost to other similar models in terms of other functions. It, even though was designed to be light, was still defeated by Lenovo LaVie Z HZ550 which weighs 0.85kg compared to the Apple MacBook which weighs 0.9kg. Its dimensions are 0.52 by 11.04 by 7.74 inches or 1.3 by 28 by 19.7 centimetres. Considering this, one will have no problem fitting it in a 13-inch laptop bag and maybe even a bag made for 10-inch tablets. It has the butterfly-keyboard, Forcetouch track pad and uses USB-C, which may or may not be bad depending on the user for the following reasons. Firstly, most reviews on the Force touch trackpad was negative but many of them were due to the users not being used to it. Secondly, it uses USB-C and most people don’t have it, many are forced to buy USB-C-to-DisplayPort and USB-C-to-Ethernet cables from third party companies. Lastly, the butterfly-keyboard will feel uncomfortable for a varying period of time depending on the user. The keys are larger causing the gap to decrease but the key’s centre to centre is still the same. Thunderbolt 3 support is also not added into the MacBook even though it uses the same port as the USB-C.

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 has a face-recognizing camera that can log the user into Windows just by sitting in front of the camera. Therefore, the user does not need to type or create any complicated password.

Its touchscreen traps grease from fingers and thus making it slimy. Furthermore, if you use as a laptop, the screen will wobble when touched.

If you use it as a tablet, the lid isn’t rigid which would make some users uncomfortable.

The audio is decent and is louder and clearer when used as a tablet. However, the sound gets muffed when you place it on your lap.

The keyboard isn’t very bad but it isn’t good either. The keyboard’s keys are oddly shaped and some undersized. The only good thing about the keys are that it does not take a lot of effort to press down.

The touchpad however, is uneven, on the bottom left side of the keyboard, meaning that you will accidentally click something using the touchpad. You can change the settings of the touchpad to reduce the frequency of accidental clicks but you cannot disable certain part of the touchpad like some other laptops.

The laptop also has a C-type USB port but it cannot be used in the current situation as it is only used for fast USB 3.1 data. It was made just for future peripherals that have not been invented yet.

There is also another version of Radius 12 which has better battery life and an 1080p non-touchscreen which costs $ 1000 instead of the usual $ 1299.

In conclusion, I think that there is way more laptops that can do better at certain more important areas that cost the same or lesser than the Radius 12.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra

Based on the design of the Xperia Z, the Xperia Z Ultra is a very attractive-looking phone. It combines a metallic frame with tempered glass on both the front and rear, giving it a minimalistic, stylish appeal. It is impossibly thin at 6.5mm but is surprisingly not the thinnest and lightest. The 6.44-inch full-HD Triluminos display’s colours were vibrant and crisp, and Sony seems to have resolved the colour shift issue with the Xperia Z. Like more recent Sony smartphones, the Xperia Z Ultra uses onscreen menu buttons.

It is also water and dust proof therefore, you can take HD photos underwater with its 8-megapixel camera. While it doesn’t come with pen-style input device, the smartphone’s display is capable of taking notes using the built-in handwriting recognition tool which even allows you to write using a pencil or metal pen. However, it is not pressure sensitive so you have to do the size manually on the app. It uses the 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor so it is extremely fast.

Dell XPS 13(non-touch)

First off, I should clear the confusion, there is another Dell XPS 13 with touchscreen and poorer quality so it is cheaper by $ 300+ but has better battery life (I’ll explain the reasons later on).

Dell XPS 13 has a nearly borderless display and a small body for a 13-inch laptop. It does not have a high-resolution screen and an edge-to-edge glass overlay which makes it not look as slick. It also loses touch screen as the name suggests, which makes Windows 8 harder to use.

The original version has a better pixel resolution and touchscreen and this version has poorer resolution and no touchscreen but with better battery life. The battery life improved from 7 hours to 12 hours. The touchscreen is the biggest sacrifice as the mousepad is one of the laptop’s weakness.

Most of its designs is the same as the original version, with a silver top, gently rounded corners and a circular logo in the centre of the lid.

The inside is basic black with a subtle dark pattern over the wrist rest and black keys in a black keyboard tray. The keys are also nicely spaced for quick typing and responsive. Function keys row is reversed which means that you can adjust the volume and brightness without holding down the function key. The clickpad-style touchpad works well for basic navigating and tapping and clicking but the two-finger scroll is not as smooth as one may expect from a MacBook.

Because of the small body, there is only 2 USB 3.0, audio and SD card ports and nothing else.

In my opinion, you are choosing between battery life and content or a lot touchscreen and better quality and content so do choose carefully

Alienware 13(OLED)

The highlight and uniqueness of this laptop is its OLED screen, that has very bright and clear display. To make even more unique, it is the first laptop(as far as I know) to have it. The OLED is found in only the best big-screen televisions besides other laptops. This is also a limited edition laptop. It costs from $1800 to $2400SGD online(shipping takes 3-4 days). If you are getting your hopes up, don’t. This is one of the few good things about this laptop. Its battery life is not amazing and there are better gaming laptops out there. Its aplication performance is quite bad and the when gaming, the battery lasts only 90 minutes.OLED is not as good as televisions with OLED an example is that the colour is not accurate as it was tested by a television expert, you can trust him. But there are good things about the OLED such as how it shows the colour black and its brightness(tested by the expert mentioned earlier). Before I end this, I want to warn you that the bottom gets hot easily, so don’t burn your lap or anything else.


Acer Aspire Switch 10

blame it on Songze

It can be found in Challenger but it is currently sold out. The Acer Aspire Switch 10 has a hybrid mechanism. It is a budget hybrid as it using magnetic connection to attach its screen. It has the same hardware limitations as other similar sized hybrids. It is built to work in 4 different modes as seen above. Powerful magnets pull the keyboard and screen together, and surprisingly, it would not fall even when you hold it by the screen and shake it. Its CPU is not as good as some other similar sized hybrid tablets. It runs for about 6 hours before its battery drains out, therefore, it cannot be your full-time PC with.The Acer Aspire Switch 10 costs a bit less than other small-screen hybrids, but also gives you less: a slower processor, less RAM, and a smaller hard drive. But when it comes to actually using the system, and taking advantage of its tablet and hybrid shapes, you should find it easier to use, and more fun, than some recent fold-back or pull-apart hinge hybrids.
