My name is Marco Brenco, I live in Italy and I'm currently a
skilled developer in Microsoft's technologies for the
development of web sites (Asp.Net, C#, Linq, Sql Server...).
To be clear to who looks at this site to guess my skills, it is
not at all a good example of what I can do. It's been created

still are a good example of my OO and overall programming skills.

The purpose of this site is to explore the capabilities of Java

with a puppet which obeys to a strange rule: it can only make two steps
in a row. Will you find the way to the exit?
In Just Skidding you must help a worm reach
its apple through 50 levels of increasing difficulty. Plan your movements carefully
to create the path to the apple, and beware the carnivorous plants!
Add walls to a chessboard, and you get Chess Mazes.
In each level your goal is to move your chess pieces until one of them
reaches the target square.
The trick is that a piece can only move when it's protected by another one.
In Think Tint your goal is to proceed
as far as possible on a spiral of hexagonal tiles, coloured in 3 different ways.
At each move you select the colour of the tile you want to go.
The trick is that, if more than a tile has such colour, the target tile will be
