To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
Relive The Golden Age of Video Arcade Games with Bloo Kid for Android
Although the golden age of video arcade games has come and gone, many of us still yearn for retro-styled platformers today. Luckily for us, XDA forum member Eiswuxe can help us rekindle our nostalgic passions thanks to his new game Bloo Kid.
This game, which features aesthetically pleasing pixel art and tons of fast paced action, brings challenging action similar to the classic game Bubble Bobble. Adding to the difficulty, this game features a star-based completion system, whereby you can earn up to three stars, depending upon your in-game performance.
In the words of the developer:
I would like to announce the release of my new Android game called “Bloo Kid”. It is a “one-screen” (like Bubble Bobble) jump and run game featuring cute pixelart, a full chiptune soundtrack und 60 levels across five unique worlds with five bossmonsters to defeat.
You control your character with on-screen buttons. The game gets quite challenging, especially if you want to complete all levels with a 3-star rating.Unfortunately, I don’t have a trailer video yet, so the screens must suffice for now. The game is free. It shows some advertising, but not during normal gameplay, just in the menus.
I would be glad to hear some opinions on the game!
Continue on to the game thread to get your retro gaming fix!

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
