Outrun The Blazing Lava With Herculaneum for Android
People like to feel powerful and be like they know and can do everything when it comes to using their Android devices. You may recall a game called PocketGod, which basically provides you with God like status over some digital beings in your device. This time, you will have power one more time, but the power to save lives. XDA member Zappescu has released a game where your sole objective is to rescue people from an erupting volcano (much unlike the aforementioned game where one of the objectives was to throw people inside one). The more people you rescue from a certain death, the more points you will get. The game presents good graphics and rather solid game play.
Please leave some feedback if you enjoyed it or if there are any bugs that you may have stumbled upon.

You can find more information in the game thread.
