OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
Shear Sheep in the Air as Mad Jimmy, the Flying Farmer
Oh no! All the animals in the world have gone mad! Chickens, pigs, sheep, are all flying through the air! But the sheep need to be sheared! So take on the role as Mad Jimmy, The Famed Flying Farmer, and fly your way through the glorious skies as you shear sheep, and in return, the farm owner will reward you a secret treasure map!
Developed by an XDA Forum Member named none other than madjimmy, Mad Jimmy The Flying Farmer is a side scrolling, arcade game where you control Mad Jimmy up and down in the effort to dodge explosive boxes and crates, ‘rocket pigs, farting cows and cannon chickens‘, all while trying to shear as many sheep as possible before you reach the end of the level. Gold and silver coins and diamonds can be collected on the way to increase your score, while health packs repair your plane from the damage incurred from the obstacles. Graphics are a cartoon-like 2D aesthetic that’s very fitting for the gameplay and setting, and accompanied by a very comedic rendition of ‘Old Macdonald Had a Farm.’ There are 24 levels of increasing difficulty, with each level unlocking another piece of that treasure map, and graded out of 3 stars.
Madjimmy has developed a fun and well polished game with a humorous plot and simple gameplay driving it forward. Mad Jimmy is compatible with any Android device running Android versions 1.6 and up, and is available for free from the Play store. So if this sounds like something you would like to check out, head over to the original thread for more details.
