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!”

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
