Shuriken Strike Lets You Slash Fruit with Ninja Stars

Shuriken Strike

By now, we’ve all learned that ninjas don’t particularly care for fruit. This distaste for produce is normally settled with the help of a sharpened samurai sword, but what do you do when your sword is temporarily out of commission? You use the other stereotypical ninja weapon, ninja stars, to make a fruit puree.

XDA Forum Member east_62687 recently created the game Shuriken Strike: Ninja Master, and perhaps the best way to think of it is that it’s a dramatically different (and more difficult) take on the popular Fruit Ninja. Instead of wielding a sword, you have an unlimited supply of ninja stars at your disposal. To fire, you simply swipe in the direction that you’d like to th. . . READ ON »

Connect the Dots with Connect:Classic

connect:classic

As our smartphones and tablets grow more and more powerful with each passing generation, mobile gaming titles have similarly evolved to the point where they would seem right at home on a PC or console of only a couple of generations prior. But sometimes, you want to get away from all of the gory giblets and fancy graphics in modern FPS games, and instead play something a bit more mentally stimulating. This is where puzzle games like Connect:Classic by XDA Forum Member adrian_dsl come in.

As one would imagine from its name, the goal of Connect:Classic is to connect dots of similar colors that are on your game screen. And just like the old game Numberlink, you are only able to connect dots with single, continu. . . READ ON »

Be the Last Man Standing in Last Bird Standing

Last_Bird_Standing

The craze over birds in the mobile gaming world just won’t go away. Every time we feel that we have gotten over Angry Birds or the ever so infuriating Flappy Birds, we seem to stumble into the madness that involves feathered creatures once again. This is where XDA Forum Member ogiepogi@gmail.com comes in, with his latest creation, Last Bird Standing.

Last Bird Standing is a game that is based on the retro Atari game Joust. The objective of the game is quite simple. As its name states, the point is to survive all the other birds that are trying to get rid of you in every level. You eliminate your opponents by jumping on them à la Mario. And much in the same fashion as with the beloved Italian plumber, y. . . READ ON »

towerbruiser

It’s late Saturday evening, you’ve written a bunch of articles for the day, and you’re winding down while getting ready to call it a night—OK, well maybe only two of those three items apply to you. In any case, rather than simply vegging out in front of the boobtube, you decide to load up a quick, yet entertaining game on your mobile device. You’re sick of Flappy Bird, 2048, and all their clones, so what do you pick out? A good, old fashioned Tower Defense game, of course!

Tower Defense (TD) games have been a staple on Android (as well as gaming as a whole) for quite some time. On Android, there are dozens of great options, and perhaps the most famous over the years is Robo De. . . READ ON »

Beat Your Friends with 2 Players Duel

Hotseat Multiplayer: These are two words that make practically any old school gamer excited. Games like Worms or Heroes of Might & Magic are absolute classics of the genre, and Android is the perfect platform to play such exciting titles. Despite this, we haven’t seen too many in this category.

XDA is a place where tons of indie developers can present their games and applications. One of them, XDA Forum Member coder1cv8, gave us the opportunity to reminisce about hotseat multiplayer gaming from the 90s.

As its name suggests, 2 Players Duel is a two player game, where you control small jets and aim to shoot down your opponents. Your goal is to win ten games. There are plenty of obstac. . . READ ON »

Flappy 48 is as Frustrating as Flappy Bird and 2048 Combined

home_400

Flappy Bird is an maddeningly addictive, yet infuriatingly frustrating game. You know what else can be described by those adjectives? 2048. So naturally, it was only a matter of time before somebody combined the two, right?

Now thanks to XDA Senior Member sylsau, you can flap your way to 2048 rather than bothering with addition and complicated strategies. Flappy 48 works just like any other Flappy Birds clone. Simply tap the screen to make your tile flap its way up the screen, but watch out for the walls above and below the opening. With each passing barrier, your tile increases in number. And just like 2048, your goal is to eventually reach 2048.

To give Flappy 48 a shot, head over to the game thread. . . READ ON »

Sliding-Ball is a Mobile Take on Marble Madness for the 3D Age

sliding-ball

If you’re anything like I am, you probably spent a good deal of your childhood playing the iconic Atari game Marble Madness. Since the mid 80s, not too many games have built on the the success of this concept, but the ones that have have seen great commercial success. Now, XDA Forum Member Bosnow hopes to bring back this classic game style with Sliding-Ball.

As you may infer from the game’s name, Sliding-Ball puts you in command of a ball that slides around the game field. Your goal is to slide, turn, and jump your way to each level’s goal. To do this, you have two control areas. On the left side of the screen, you have a virtual D-pad. And on the right, you have an area where you can slide your fi. . . READ ON »
