From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
Be Careful About Which Way You Go – Walkabout for Android
If you like puzzle games where one false move can cost you tons of playing time, you really should take Walkabout for a spin. XDA member kam187 made this beautiful game with great graphics and smooth animations where the objective is to collect all the stars that you see on the level. As you move your character through the map, you will notice that you will not be able to go back the way you went because the road behind you simply just vanishes. You will have to be perfectly sure of which way you are taking or else you may not be able to get back. Needless to say, difficulty increases as you make it through the different levels. The game is made so that it will run on most Android devices without any issues.
If you try the game and if you have any suggestions or find bugs, please do not hesitate to leave feedback for the dev.
I just made my first android game. Its called walkabout – the idea is to collect all the stars on each level, but as you walk the path beneath you disappears. You need to think about your route or you’ll be stranded!
