Slay the Monsters without Losing Your Fingers with Indie Game
XDA is a place full of great developers of all types. Not only ROMs, kernels, and root methods are created here. Rather, a handful of independent games can be found on our boards as well. Not so long ago, we talked about Mega Drop, an indie game created by XDA Forum Member ildraco. Now, we’d like to present another indie classic.
Featuring a totally different style, XDA Forum Member coder1cv8 created Don’t Touch my Monsters. This is an arcade-style game, in which you have to annihilate the evil monsters. Your only tool to do this is tapping on the screen, but it’s not as easy as it sounds because there are swords, saws, and many other traps that defend these adorable looking creatures. So you need to pay attention, and stop touching the monsters for a while to achieve victory.
There are two levels available, but the developer is planning to release another level, as there is a in-game slot for it. The second level can be unlocked after collecting 300 coins, which can be gathered by defeating monsters and getting extra coins from levels.
Don’t Touch my Monsters is an interesting indie game with a unique spin. If you want to try it, be sure to make your way to the game thread and game on.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
