Game development is a dynamic process, which we chose as a great start for Liki Internship. The team of 3 interns and 3 mentors created the game in 1 month which helps to assess the knowledge of developers in a funny way.
From idea to solution
The bugs are rapidly approaching the finish line, and the only option to survive is to use junior, mid, or senior developers' towers. Are you brave enough and have enough knowledge to defend the code from bugs? The game is a fun way to check the knowledge of, for example, interns you are hiring or your own.
Three types of towers
The player’s task is clear: to defend the code from bugs.
The bugs are rapidly approaching the finish line, and the only option to survive is to use towers with junior, mid, or senior developers. To protect the code, you have to give the correct answers for questions of various complexity. The level of difficulty depends on which tower will you use: junior, mid or senior developer. First, you have to prove your knowledge by answering the easiest junior questions, and then you can use mid and senior towers, which have more power to exterminate bugs.
So it depends on you, Will you let the bugs win?
You didn’t save the code from the bugs’ attack. But you can always try one more time. Play again, practice makes perfect.
If you see this screen, we pay our respect. Your knowledge compelled bugs to surrender! Only those who are skilled enough will get to the end. We have good news: the best developers who have demonstrated strong knowledge and defended the code from bugs will have an opportunity to fill in the recruitment form and join the Liki Team!
Scrum methodology and transparent communication in the team helped us to create the game from scratch in just 1 month. The team of 3 interns with the support of a skilled product owner, scrum master and design lead created the Bugs Defence in a series of sprints, providing roadmaps and implementing all the necessary features.
Besides being fun, the Bugs Defence game is a great alternative for the HR process. The game can help to assess the technical competency of developers. The process becomes more interactive and diverse for both the HR manager and the candidate. Therefore, the game helps to defuse tensions during the interview.
