Game Distant Galaxies for Windows Mobile, PC & XBox Updated

XDA member _LEM_ presents an update of the classic game Distant Galaxies, now available for your Windows Mobile device, PC, and XBox. This simple game is a classic space shooter, a distant cousin of Space Invaders, and is probably related to Galaxian somewhere along the line too. Featuring more enemies, final bosses, extra weapons, and the option to upload your score and share it with the rest of users in the World Ranking, this game will give you many hours of fun reviving the arcade games form the past.
Please leave your feedback for the developer.

Hi all,

Some people already know me because of TrackMe,
a free GPS track application that I wrote sometime ago.

I’m creating a new thread because I just finished writing a game that I wanted to share it with you guys.

Distant Galaxies is a classic space shooter for Pocket PCs and Smartphones. This game tries to follow the same philosophy of old classic games, but adding more enemies, final bosses, extra weapons and the ability to upload your score and share it with the rest of users in the World Ranking. I tried to keep this game far from other space shooters for PDAs where you can only see bullets, 3D effects and all kind of stuff in the screen that makes playability very complicated. This game is easy and fun to play and that’s why I think this game is closer to those old classics.

And yes, the game is free!

Continue to the game thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
