Go Retro Gaming With AndroCabLite
We all love retro gaming. The elder amongst us (at least the blessed ones with Commodore 64’s) will remember a simple and addictive game called Space Taxi. The objective was simply picking up passengers from one place and dropping them off in a different one. Times may go forward, but it looks like concepts like this stick around for the long run because XDA member aposhtol has, along with a friend, developed a game for Android devices, which basically emulates this game. In AndroCabLite, your objective is the same as that of Space Taxi (pick aliens up and dropping them off in another platform. The game’s graphics are rather well done and will make past and present blend in with simple, yet well polished designs.
If you have some time to spare, please give this one a go and provide some feedback for the devs.
me and my friends developed an action game based on Commodore 64 game Space Taxi. Objective of this game is to transport passengers in your cab from one platform to another. A “Lite” free version is available in Android Market. Full version is coming soon. Feel free to comment and rate

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
