Shift – WinMo Puzzle Game Written For Android
For those of you who may remember Shift – a Windows Mobile puzzle game, it’s now available on Android, courtesy of XDA forum member mr_deimos.
Shift was originally written for Winmo by XDA member Mollusk, and involves moving blocks around to form groups of 3 blocks or more to make them disappear. mr_deimos waited so long for an Android port, that he got fed up of waiting and decided to write an Android version himself.
The game mechanics and scoring system are identical to the Windows Mobile version, but the graphics and coding were done from scratch since the dev did not have sources for the original game.
To download the game, and for more information, head on over to the application thread.
