The Dobblers were happy creatures that lived in their land for ages. The grand Dobblers taught their younglings how to live a Dobbler life. Dobland was happy and full of joy. Then, the Booblers came and destroyed everything that the Dobblers loved. The poor Dobblers were then put in cages and their diamonds were stolen.
Dobbler, who is the main character in the game, was on vacation, drinking his favorite Doblerjito with lemon while all this happened. After he returned, he decided to take action, and this is where you come in.

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’. . . READ ON »

You may recall that a few weeks ago, we talked about a rather interesting take on everyone’s favorite number game addiction, 2048. But while the previously covered version offered great game play thanks to its selectable grid sizes, it was admittedly a bit lacking on the UI front. Now, XDA Senior Member sylsau has published his own take on the number-based puzzler, offering quite a bit of polish that is lacking in most of the other 2048 variants available.
Sylsau’s 2048 Puzzle plays much like any other 2048 variant. You’re presented with a 4×4 grid, and your goal is to combine the numbers into a 2048 tile. But unlike other 2048 variants, you are given a few tools to keep the game exciting . . . READ ON »

I’m sure that by now, the vast majority of you have already devoted more than a few hours to the fantastic tile game 2048 by UI designer and web developer Gabriele Cirulli.If you haven’t, may I suggest that you take a break from the world of mobile hacking and give it a try.
Now you may ask why I’m talking about a simple, yet surprisingly addictive web-app game here on the XDA Portal. Well, there’s now a fantastic port of the game available for your mobile device. And although the official version works great on mobile devices, this port packs a few extra features to make it even more interesting when you’re on the go.

In recent years, modern gaming has essentially become synonymous with fast-paced kill sprees, adrenaline-provoking competitiveness, and visuals good enough to fool casual observers. But every once in a while, a simple yet ingenious game is released that makes us put down our copies of BF4 and GTR-E and use our noggins. XDA Forum Member LZ77 created one such game called Colorem.
The concept behind Colorem is simple. Your goal is to color all of the blocks on your screen using four provided colors—but it’s not as simple as it sounds. You can only color a certain number of blocks in each color, and no two adjacent blocks can be the same color. This doesn’t sound that difficult—a. . . READ ON »

Anyone who ever had a friend or loved one battle cancer will surely attest to the fact that the disease is no laughing matter. But while cancer itself is obviously not fun, it can make for an interesting and altruistic game aimed at raising awareness and funding for cancer research and prevention.
XDA Forum Member Triton1986 recently created the game Triton – Stop Cancer, where the player’s goal is to… stop cancer. The game presents you with cancer cells, which multiply over time, and your goal is to eradicate them (or hold out as long as possible). Cancer cells can be killed by tapping on them—if only it were that easy in real life—and sometimes they die spontaneously.

While by now the majority of us have already kicked our Flappy Bird addiction, many still harbor some animosity towards the curiously addictive game for taking so much time from us. Luckily, there are a few ways to get back at that clumsy bird.
A few days ago, we talked about FlapShot by XDA Recognized Developer EatHeat, where instead of playing as the bird, your job is to shoot the bird. Now, there’s a new way to take out your aggression thanks to Crushy Birds by XDA Forum Member benjamin94.
Crushy Birds is a rather satisfying game. Rather than playing the part of a bird trying to fly through pipes, you are the pipe. And instead of letting the birds through, your job is to smash as many birds as possible. To c. . . READ ON »

If you have spent any amount of time on the Internet and are a gamer, you’ve no doubt heard of the ‘pay-what you-want’ and charitable giving game package called Humble Indie Bundle. In recent years, the Humble Bundle has moved away from solely featuring independent developer games, and has even expanded to include mobile devices.
In today’s video, XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan talks about the most recent Humble Mobile Bundle, which includes the games Catan, Vector, Riptide GP2, Zombie Gunship, and two other bonus games. In this video, Jordan talks about Catan, Vector, and Riptide GP2. So if you want to learn more about the Humble Bundle, check this video out, check out their si. . . READ ON »

I, for one, am grateful that Flappy Bird can no longer be obtained through traditional channels. No longer do I have the social challenge of trying to achieve a higher score than friends, and no longer do I have an excuse to procrastinate and put aside all responsibilities in order to continuously tap a screen without getting out of bed for days on end. In fact, considering all the time and effort wasted thanks to Flappy Bird, I’m thinking sweet, sweet revenge is in order.
With the above in mind, XDA Recognized Developer EatHeat developed FlapShot, the perfect game to unleash all your angst against Flappy Bird. The game bases itself on augmented reality, using your rear-facing camera as the setting of your sho. . . READ ON »
