Relive Boulder Dash or Supaplex On Your Android With DroidPlex

We all love retro gaming. It is the one and only reason why emulators for things like Commodore 64, Atari, etc. still exist (and are popular) in this day and age. This time, XDA member visrealm brings us DroidPlex, which is not really an emulator, but rather a port of Supaplex, which in turn is a remake of an even older game called BoulderDash for the Commodore 64 and arcade. The objective of the game is rather simple. You need to collect as many treasures as you can by digging through the ground in front, above, and underneath you. However, you must be careful with the boulders as they will turn you into a flapjack if you take the ground that is keeping it in place. The puzzles are addictive in general, and the dev has made a wonderful job in recreating the Supaplex version for Android.

If you are an 80’s nostalgic child and would like to try the game, or if you simply want to post some feedback for the dev, please get it from the market.

Hi all,

I’ve recently released my first Android title: DroidPlex!

The 1991 classic game Supaplex now faithfully re-created for your Android. If you liked Supaplex or Boulder Dash, you will love this. Also great for kids.

The first 7 original levels are playable in this Lite version.

You can find more information in the game thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
