PushBall Game for HD2
PushBall version 1.0 is a nifty little game developed by XDA forum member owtommywo. This is the first game that the dev has developed and has only been tested on the HTC HD2.
The object of the game is to center the red dot, and if necessary bounce the blue ball against the edges of the screen and other various obstacles.
It’s a touchscreen game and to move the ball, you can move your finger towards yourself and release – like a rubber band.

owtommywo is open to suggestions for graphics in order to enrich his game, and also some constructive feedback to improve the gameplay.
For more information and where to download the free game, visit the application thread.
