Pop the Bubbles with Circles
Have you ever felt the need to have more than 10 fingers on your hands? How about a third hand? If you’ve never felt this way and you are curious as to why would anyone wish for something like this, then you definitely need to take a quick look at Circles by XDA Forum Member baseball4355.
Circles is a game analogous to that old game Whack-a-Mole, where you had to hit those furry creatures with a mallet as they come out of their holes. Essentially, your objective is to be as quick as possible and prevent the circles that pop on your screen from leaving unattended, and by unattended, I mean that you need to whack them. You must whack them with your fingers, of course. But if you are in need of whacking your device with a mallet, then by all means; knock yourselves out.
Circles, however, is not as simple as Whack-a-Mole, due to a few extras added by the dev. For starters, you get 3 levels of difficulty to test your skills / drive you insane. Each level features different speeds and a different number of lives (the harder the level, the less lives you get). For every circle that gets away before you hit it, you will lose a life. For each black circle you hit, you will lose a life. Your objective? Survive by earning the most points. Having said all this, not everything that the dev added is doom and chaos because he has added a power up that will destroy everything in the screen when it is tapped.
The game is in its initial stages and there is still lots of work to be done to it, despite the great graphics and smooth animations present already in the game. So, if you try it out and would like to leave some feedback regarding bugs and suggestions, now is a good chance to do it. Without further ado, happy popping! You can find more information in the Circles app thread.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
