Go on a Midnight Thrill Ride with Dark Roads

Many folks out there just have a deep appreciation for simple games, including yours truly. I’m not sure if it’s because of the distinct art styles not normally seen with resource-hungry 3D epics, the simple casualness and addictiveness of their gameplay, or just the fact that it may not take as much effort to enjoy. Merge these aspects with a spooky, midnight bike ride, and you have Dark Roads.

Developed by XDA Forum Member laubak75, Dark Roads’s gameplay consists of bumping and traversing your way over challenging terrain on your motorcycle. Controls include simple forwards and backwards arrows, while tilting your device one way or the other will allow you to flip forwards or backwards when you’re in the air. The objective? Don’t land on your head, back, or anywhere but your two wheels. The further you go, the higher your score gets. Fans of casual games will appreciate the modest, yet eerie and atmospheric grayscale graphics and the appropriately spooky, yet pleasant background music with organs, creaking doors, and a haunting choir.

Dark Roads checks all the boxes, be it atmospheric art style, addictiveness, and simplicity. If you want to give it a go yourself, you can download it for free from the original thread.

Hint: The moon will rise with every bike flip

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
