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.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price. The initial launch phase was met with mixed feelings after a few controversial marketing tactics, but they eventually gave way to strong sales figures.   Earlier this week, OnePlus went on to unveil the successor to the One, and while the device continues to offer top-of-the-line specs at...

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
