Coin master home assignment

Coin Master is the best game in the market today, and we still love to play other games as well.

Choose ‘Coin Master’ and prepare an explicit test design for anything you choose in it (tutorial, feature, event, sale – anything!)

Treat the design for a new feature that will be launched for the first time

A few guidelines for writing the tests:

  • Add 1-2 sentences (not more) on the feature, what’s its goal, when do we see it etc. – basic info about it=
  • The tests should be written as a title with expected results, no need for step-by-step tests
  • The goal is to test the way you analyze, think and address a feature – so anything you think should be covered should be stated in the test design
  • Videos, Screenshot are welcome
  • Please add a link to the game you choose (App Store/ Web/ Google store etc.)

Take into notice the time limits when planning the test design!  

Here are a few examples:

How we plan to test the ‘Coin Master’ game

In order to treat the design, for a new feature, given as if it will be launched for the first time, I will be using a method called acceptance testing for an agile environment teams. 

This method can describe, in natural language programming or if you like, better yet, in a technique called Behaviour Driven Development, as I will explain first and write the Testing Design after. So, if you would like to skip what is: sprint zero, BDD, agile, then scroll straight to the test design paragraph or click here.

Sprint Zero 

Sprint zero is the first iteration of the project where many preparation activities take place. The tester collaborates with the team on the following activities during this iteration:

  • Identify the scope of the project (i.e., the product backlog)
  • Create an initial system architecture and high-level prototypes
  • Plan, acquire, and install needed tools
  • Create an initial test strategy for all test levels, addressing (among other topics) test scope, technical risks, test types, and coverage goals

Testing quadrants

Testing quadrants, align the test levels with the appropriate test types in the Agile methodology. The testing quadrants model, and its variants, helps to ensure that all important test types and test levels are included in the development lifecycle. This model also provides a way to differentiate and describe the types of tests to all stakeholders, including developers, testers, and business representatives. 

For this assignment I will use the following quadrant:

Quadrant Q3 is system or user acceptance level, business facing, and contains tests that critique the product, using realistic scenarios and data. This quadrant contains exploratory testing, scenarios, process flows, usability testing, user acceptance testing, alpha testing, and beta testing. These tests are often manual and are user-oriented.

Behaviour-Driven Development

Behaviour-driven development allows a developer to focus on testing the code based on the expected behaviour of the software. Because the tests are based on the exhibited behaviour from the software, the tests are generally easier for other team members and stakeholders to understand.

Specific behaviour-driven development frameworks can be used to define acceptance criteria based on the given/when/then format:

Given some initial context,

When an event occurs,

Then ensure some outcomes. 

From these requirements, the behaviour-driven development framework generates code that can be used by developers to create test cases. Behaviour-driven development helps the developer collaborate with other stakeholders, including testers, to define accurate unit tests focused on business needs.

A Simple Yet Fun Slot Machine Game for Everybody

One of the many reasons why Coin Master became a crowd favourite is because of its simple and straightforward gameplay. All you need to do is spin the virtual slot machine and make sure that you earn prizes. Even though all you need is luck so you can get

three money bags to earn millions of loot, it is still the kind of game that will keep you challenged.

When spinning the virtual slot machine, it is ideal to arrive at winning combinations to earn respective prizes. The first winning combination is three money bags, which will earn you a huge amount of coins. Next is a three ax combination to attack and destroy another Viking village. To refill your spins, you need to win three batteries. To raid and steal from another village, you should win the three pig combination. Lastly, three shields will protect your village from enemy attacks.

Finish Building Your Viking Village

Once you have mastered using the slot machine, you can build your village efficiently. There are items in your village that you need to complete using millions of coins. To avoid enemies from stealing your coins, make sure to use it right away once you have enough. Shields will keep enemies from destroying what you have built.

Don’t forget that collecting cards will give you more spins and coins. Once you complete a set of cards, the game will reward you with these prizes. You will find the cards when you open the treasure chest once a day. Now, make sure to keep an eye on these treasure chests.
