Previous Publications

Found my previous publications that were written for YKGS and wanted to keep them here together for further reference.

They are in Turkish but I hope it can be useful to someone somewhere someday somehow 🙂

A Rhyming Cover Letter

Poetry

Although some companies like Google or Microsoft do not usually ask for a cover letter for job applications, a lot of others do and it might be critical to write one that will catch the eye of the recruiter. After getting absolutely no response from a few companies, I tried a different route for a position which specifically asked to “shine in the cover letter”. I came up with the following “poem” and voila! I got the fastest response ever! I did not ask if the cover letter did work or if they would respond quickly anyway, but still, I wanted to share it so that it might inspire someone. At least, it might put a smile on a recruiter’s face 😉

I am MacGyver of development, Dr. House of bug finding
I am Mr. Wolf when a bug needs resolving.
I am the solvent to your bugs, creating new solutions,
I am the answer to your existing questions.
I am the the one that will hinder the hindrance,
I am the guardian of your well-known excellence.
I am a developer, designer and tester
I am …
…. the Bugmaster!

By the way, I am not responsible for getting blacklisted for being too informal if you try to do a similar thing. In the end, don’t be this guy: http://www.theonion.com/article/informal-tone-cover-letter-sets-job-applicant-apar-50810

Looking for a simple game that you can have a quick play every now and then? Ringaring is here to rescue!

Easy to play; just swipe up to shoot, left right to move the balls and down to randomize the ball colors

Make awesome combos for more points

40 levels for now, getting harder at each stage with glass and non-breakable metal targets

You need to get only 1 star to unlock next level which means you just need to have a positive point at the end. (you can unlock all levels via In App Purchase if you want)

Hey, talking about positiveness: super cute sound packs are designed to make you smile

By the way, there are no ads that popup every time you try to do something. There is only a simple banner ad and you know what? You can remove it via In App Purchase too!

More levels, challenging mechanics, new combos and social features are already on the way. Just download, enjoy the game and stay tuned.

Ringaring is designed for every iOS device with firmware version 7.0 and higher. If you experience stuttering on the game, try turning the effects off in the settings menu.

Have fun and don’t forget to spread the word if you enjoy Ringaring 😉

Line Me Up is Updated

Hey everyone, I’ve updated Line Me Up and it is already on AppStore. Free version had all its limitations removed. Now you can choose your own image from your library,  play with any sized boards and have unlimited undos.

Both versions had their download sizes greatly reduced so don’t be afraid to download using 3G 🙂

Line Me Up; Rubik’s Cube in 2D

Line Me Up on AppStore – (or click here for free version)

Line Me Up is a result of thinking “How would Rubik’s Cube be if it were in 2D?”. I was excited about the idea as I am a Rubik (and it’s variations’) fan and decided to go for it as my first game on iOS.

However, after playing  the first prototype, I found it too easy for my taste . At that a point, I decided to add an option to convert a photo into some-kind-of-a sliding puzzle. It would not be similar to the classical sliding puzzles as you will have to move entire row or column instead of moving a single piece.

It took me a few days to solve my first pictured puzzle and still, it is a challenge to solve an eight by eight puzzle.

“How about people with no background on Rubik’s Cubes?” you ask? Well, I got asked a lot if it is even possible to solve it. The answer is “Yes, absolutely”, so don’t be afraid but get ready for a challenge.

You’ll be able to undo your moves or have a peek at the solution. Each move will be automatically saved so you’ll be able to resume your game even if you run out of battery.

I’ll add a gameplay video soon (may even give some hints on how to solve 😉 ), till then, here are the tutorial images:
