Baviux For Android – Danger: Flashbacks to Childhood Guaranteed
Over the last couple of years, we have seen several retro type games that can take us back to when we were younger. These games can range anywhere from 80’s style arcade games to board games as well as a few others. However, this handheld marvel that used to amuse us for several hours is a first on Android. XDA member pep_dj has recreated that little water filled toy that was filled with small rings or balls that you had to get on certain places of its enclosed little playing field. You would essentially accomplish this by using a button, which would inject a stream of air, mixing everything in the process. This was on top of a lot of tilting and turning upside down of the toy. If you just remembered what I am talking about, then you will get teary eyes when you watch the demo video that the dev has put up.
The game is still being developed but seems rather stable so far. However, the dev is looking for some feedback whether it be bugs or simply suggestions. Please give this a shot and let us know what you think.
The game is simple, but fun. It’s like the water games we played when we were kids.
You can find more information in the game thread.

From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
