Have Some Fun With BackFromEarth for Windows Phone 7
Everyone gets happy about going back home, and the main character in this game is no exception. Based on the hugely popular game DoodleJump, XDA member c2d releases BackFromEarth for Windows Phone 7 devices. In essence, you are in control of a little alien creature trying to jump his way back to his mother ship. You have stages on which to jump on and have to use the tilt controls of your device to allow the little one to move around and aim at the next stage. Easy? Not really, as the levels get progressively more complex with enemies, and of course a big void underneath waiting for you to miss a jump. The game features an intelligent level generator, so you can rest assured that you will not be able to memorize the sequence and positions of the stages.
The game was just released and the dev is looking for feedback on it, so please share your thoughts and findings (if you run into bugs).
In BackFromEarth you try to help an alien back to his mother-ship using the tilt controls. The way back is dangerous and there is always a big void underneath you. The question is:
How far can you get?
BackFromEarth featuring a wide variety of different platforms and items. You need a fast reaction to survive. Every time you start a new level will be created by the intelligent level generator.
You can find more information in the game thread.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? 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.
