From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Try to Keep Up with Just Swipe Game
Sometimes, the simplest of games are the ones that end up being the most addictive and end up consuming inordinately large chunks of our time. This no doubt holds true over and over again, with various simple yet addictive titles like Flappy Bird and its clones, as well as many others. Another classic style of game involves timing various input events to when they are displayed onscreen. This includes games like Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, and so on. XDA Forum Member IDSprofile created something similar with his recently released game Just Swipe.
Just Swipe divides the screen into two sections: a command area up top that lets you know what you have to do, and an input area on the bottom, where you swipe to enter your input. The top shows players a stream of directional instructions corresponding to up, down, left, and right, and upon receiving a command, players must then swipe up, down, left, or right on the bottom of the screen to match. Just Swipe also offers nice animations, a pleasing soundtrack, and leaderboard support to challenge and compete with your friends.
If you’re looking for a fun game to pass the time and challenge friends, you may want to give Just Swipe a try. Head over to the Just Swipe Game Thread to get started.
