Flicky Circles: Where Lawn Bowls Meets Air Hockey

Hey, lawn bowls may not be the most exciting, adrenaline pumping, fingernail biting, and ‘edge-of-the-seat’ sport to watch on television. However, I’d imagine it to be pretty fun to play. And if we throw in a little bit of air hockey into the mix, I’m sure it’ll make a very interesting concept for a game. The thing is though, it already exists, as XDA Junior Member hgoran has done just that with Flicky Circles for Android.

As hinted previously, the game’s concept is very much like a fusion of lawn bowls and air hockey, as you’re presented with six circles (or balls) of differing sizes and you must try to flick (or bowl)  into the opposition’s zone. Unlike a lot of games out there, the color scheme in Flicky Circles has an integral role in the game play. With one color designated for you and your opponent, your circles’ color corresponds with the opposition’s zone, where you must aim for. It’s not as easy as it seems, because the game also has white colored end zones, where if you managed to flick a little too hard or too soft, your circle will respectively disappear from the game, or be returned to your lineup of remaining circles.

You may flick your circles towards those of your opposition as a rebound object, or to simply knock them back to the other side. There’s also a lock feature, which when activated, will secure your circles in their current positions for one turn. You can either play against the computer, or you can have a friend to play with as your opponent. And once you’ve won against them, you can proclaim the glorious victory by sharing the score on Facebook.

Flicky Circles can be downloaded for free from the Play store, and will support any device running Android version 2.3 or newer, and with any screen resolution between HVGA and 1080p. So if this has stirred your curiosity, be sure to check out the original thread for more information.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
