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.

Which Manufacturer (And Device) Made You Choose Android?

The beautiful thing about Android is that there is so much to choose from. There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?

KickMaterial: Material Design For Kickstarter

Frustrated by the lack of a Kickstarter Android App, Grzegorz Oksiuta and Outline have collaborated to design an MD themed Kickstarter app. While Kickstarter has put an end to hopes of a release, the concept looks spectacular and if not for an overly cautious legal department "could be released tomorrow".   "Last year, to keep up with what’s great, I switched from iOS to Android.
