Run ’em Zombies Over!

C’mon. Pack your bags, grab some chocolate and mints, turn off the gas to the stove, and make sure the dog’s fed. Today we’re going for a nice drive… over zombies! Ha. Terrible jokes aside, if you are on the lookout for a good ol’e hit-and-run game, you may like Run ’em Over.

Developed by XDA Forum Member frikec, Run ’em Over is a side-scrolling 2D game where you basically ‘drive through a zombie apocalypse,’ as the developer puts it. And it’s surprisingly quite fun. With game play much in the vein of the previously introduced ‘time waster’ (in a good way) Bad Roads, instead of trying to deliver crates of ducks, this time you have to traverse yourself and your beat up vehicle over roads that desperately need some government funding. This is all done while running over any stray zombies that may have gotten in your way. With a somewhat exponential pace of game play, starting off with some sort of ancient car, you will be able to earn enough cash to upgrade your vehicle in terms of speed, acceleration, handling, and fuel capacity. And with all this, some appropriate rock music accompanies you on your pleasant road trip.

It’s compatible with Android versions 2.2 and newer, and is free from either the Play store, GetJar, and SlideME. With an active developer behind a game that does a great job wasting time in a good way, you may want to give Run ’em Over a look. More details and downloads can be found in the original thread.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
