Connect Four But Not Quite As Simple – Gravity Wins For Android

Ever since mobile devices became popular tools for things other than business, we have seen a really strong influx of new (and old) board games being recreated in a software environment. These days you can find tons of clones of games lile Scrabble, Rubix Cube, Monopoly, and a whole bunch of others. Gravity Wins caught our eye for one particular reason, it uses phone capabilities to change the game, almost to its core but maintaining the essence of the original version. XDA member souljah2k created Gravity Wins as a clone of the ever popular Connect 4, but with the added difficulty that the pieces will fall to the bottom of your screen, depending on the device’s orientation when the board is shifted.

This is indeed a very interesting twist (no pun intended) on this incredibly addictive two player time killer. The dev is looking for feedback so if you happen to try it, please be sure to leave your thoughts behind.

Connect 4 is an enjoyable classic, but now, thanks to Android technology, you can enjoy Connect 4 with an interesting twist. Gravity Wins is based on the two-player game, however every few rounds, the board rotates changing the physics, allowing the pieces to fall into new positions depending on the gravity orientation.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
