Boomlings, Can You Handle The Boom?
Have you ever played one of those games that requires you to slide things around, matching the various colors and shapes to create combinations, only to find yourself thinking, “this would be a lot better with some weird little googley-eyed creatures thrown into the mix?” Well, neither had I, in all honesty. But now that I’ve played Boomlings, shuffling around jewels or plain coloured blocks just won’t cut it anymore.
Boomlings is a colorful puzzle game developed by XDA Forum Member Zhenmuron. The objective is quite simple: Relocate the various different types of boomlings into groups of four or more to remove them from the board. The more you pop, the more points you earn. Be sure to make use of the various power-ups and special boomlings to pop as many as you can before backing yourself into a corner.
While this might not be the most innovative game around, it’s certainly nicely polished with some charming little animations on the boomlings themselves. It’s perfect if you have a few minutes to kill. The game runs on Android 2.2 upwards, and if you’d like to check out a short video of it in action, head on over to the original thread.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
