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?
Chain Reaction Fun with Cilink
It’s not always about the giblets and gore in today’s popular shooter games. It’s also not always about the fancy graphics, with more pixel and vertex shaders than you can shake a stick at. Sometimes, you’re after a simple and relaxing, yet infuriatingly frustrating game, and that’s exactly what XDA Forum Member llcdraco offers with his chain reaction-type game Cilink.
Cilink falls under the category of chain reaction games, and if you’re anything like this self-professed gaming addict, you’ve never even heard of the genre. How the game type works is simple: You are presented with a moving array of circles, and you are given one chance at starting a chain reaction of explosions by carefully timing your initial blast. Need further explanation? Check out this online game.
Llcdraco’s offering plays much in the same way as other offerings in the genre. As with other chain reaction games, but it sets itself apart with its fantastic soundtrack, as well as its modern and clean visuals with light colors and typefaces. It also features additional obstacles once you advance far enough in the levels—something I have not yet been so lucky as to accomplish.
If you’ve never played a chain reaction game, do yourself a favor and check this game out. You can get your fix by heading over to the game thread and giving it a whirl. And if you somehow manage to get past the level requiring 15 connected dots, leave a comment below so I can scowl at you.
