This puzzler requires gamers to help ‘Minobabies’ escape various levels and return home. Players can build paths for the babies using blocks of various shapes and sizes. They can also use power-ups to give the Minobabies special abilities that will allow them to overcome obstacles.
Monomino is the brain child of Yong Xiang, who is currently serving his National Service. Ironically, he did not think much of his own concept, and it took the strong support and encouragement of his classmates and lecturers to turn his idea into the cute, visually-distinctive game it is today.

We were first acquainted on the first day of orientation week for the School of Health Sciences. He was in a white T-shirt and checkered Bermudas. As I was walking in front, I kept turning around to look behind at my new soon-to-be friends and I noticed Thomas was staring at me each time I turned around. Thus, I decided to break the ice and hopefully make my first new friend in NYP.

Mindy Yeo (above, right) is currently a student pursuing her Diploma in Occupational Therapy at NYP. We got to know each other in 2013, when she interviewed me for a video assignment she was working on. This wonderful lady taught me a valuable lesson: never give up on seeking purpose in my life.
After resigning from her job of four years as an operations executive in the rehabilitation department of a hospital, she decided to become an Occupational Therapist (OT), which is a totally different field of work.
