Let Your Fingers do the Running in ShadowRun

We have seen some rather unique concepts on XDA when it comes to indie games. Everything from seeing who can scan the largest number of BT devices to fighting virtual zombies invading your city in a pseudo-AR fashion. After all, slinging birds at pigs can get monotonous after a while. Because of this, seeing new concepts such as that presented in Shadowrun by XDA member eyeballgames is refreshing to say the least.

Have you ever used your fingers to pretend that you are a little man running and jumping from table to table as you walked across a restaurant in a Pitfall fashion? If you have, then you should have no issues playing this game. Essentially, your goal is to run as far as possible, using your fingers as legs. This will move Shadow (main character in the game) and it will allow him to run, jump, and avoid obstacles to make it as far as possible without drifting away from the path. The game is set in a thriller type of atmosphere (black and white graphics) with music to match it, so that you are always at the edge of your seat while playing it.

So far, a few people have seen and played the game, and believe that it is hard to master it. However, the game is a work in progress, and as such it could benefit from feedback and suggestions to make the game easier (or harder) and fix any and all present glitches. Judging from screenshots, it may be best to try it out in a tablet if you have one available. What are you waiting for? Get your fingers off the mouse and keyboard, and take them for a work-out on your device and see how far you can get!

This is the runner with original mechanic “running fingers”!

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
