Games on XDA: Run, Pig, Run!
Platformers are a staple in modern gaming. From the old school games like Mario, to modern day powerhouses like Portal, platformers are beloved by all different walks of gamers. Capitalizing on this is XDA Member SnottyApps with his newest game, Run, Pig, Run!
Run, Pig, Run! is a unique, 2D platformer that is currently in development. The developer, rather than just making it available to just a small group, has made it public and is constantly improving gameplay based on both market and thread feedback.
The premise is simple: you control a little pig who has to make its way to the end of the level by jumping, flying, and running through various obstacles while using powerups. So far the developer has included chili peppers which allow you to fly, and beer (yes beer!) which allows you to sprint faster. He even included a boss level so you that once you get the hang of the gameplay you can put your skills to the test.
So head on over to the thread here and show this game some love. Run little piggies, run.

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
