Fling and Toss Your Way to Victory With Discanoid for Android

Are you utterly obsessed with shuffleboard to the point where you want something quite similar on your phone? OK, fine. We didn’t think so. Despite that, XDA forum member xrbpowered has released a beta version of a fun and simple game that is sure to appeal to more than just the die-hard shuffleboard aficionados out there.

In the words of the developer:

Discanoid is a variation of a toss game with a puzzle element. It includes cool features like doors, boosters, portals, changing gravity and more.

Use the touchscreen to toss the disc in the desired direction. Remember that you can manipulate the disc only within the blue areas of the map. If the disc is out of reach, you can press Back key to return it to the original position. This does not reset your progress, so feel free to use it as often as you like.
Some maps use accelerometer sensor, so you have to balance your handset to control the gravity vector.

The game has two modes:
– MISSIONS are the series of maps where you must hit a certain number of targets to complete the stage;
– in ARCADE mode your task is to hit as many targets as you can before you lose or reset the disc. Arcade maps can be unlocked while doing the missions.

Good luck.

Sounds fun, right? If you’re interested in giving this beta a shot, be sure to continue on to the original thread. Also, try out Discanoid while the app is still in beta in order to unlock a “unique achievement!”

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...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
