Find the Golden X With Hyper Grid for Android
Do you like puzzle and logic games? How about minesweeper and Sudoku? If you answered yes to any of these two questions, then you will certainly want to check out what XDA member hyperbyteX has in stock for us. If you are wondering what the offspring of both minesweeper and sudoku would be like, look no further. The objective of the game is to find the location of the “golden x” and the way to do it will be by using logic and clues in the form of arrows and color coded values, which will tell you direction and distance to/from the “x”. It is a fun game with endless playing time, in case you are left with nothing else to do for a while.
The game is in its initial stages, but seems to be doing quite well so far. Please post some feedback in the thread to let the dev know if the game is good or not.

You can find more information in the game thread.

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
