Scroll Through Lights and Shadows with 2D Platformer Phlux

Remember last year’s indie game smash hit Thomas Was Alone? If you don’t and you are a fan of 2D, side-scrolling platformers, I suggest you take a few minutes to go check it out. Now unfortunately, despite being a relatively undemanding game, there’s no Thomas Was Alone port for Android. But thanks to XDA Junior Member Dipesh_Devil‘s new game Phlux, you can have a similar experience while on the go.

Phlux is a 2D platformer game that puts you in charge of a small black box with a rainbow tail. Your goal is to collect each of the three colors before exiting each level. And to do this, you must navigate through levels filled with various platforms and obstacles. To move around, you’re given two directional keys on the bottom left of your screen and a jump button on the bottom right. You’re able to double-jump in order to reach hard to reach places, a skill which quickly becomes vital in the game.

The game itself features beautifully minimal graphics, and becomes a rather beautiful kaleidoscope of colors and shadows in later levels. It is available both in ad-sponsored and paid variants. The free version is functional and allows you to play all 18 levels, but includes an ever present (but unobtrusive) banner ad in the top left of your screen while playing. The paid version, on the other hand, does away with the ad.

If you are a fan of 2D platformers and want an excellent option for while you’re on the go, head over to the game thread and give Phlux a shot!

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
