Have you ever played one of those games that requires you to slide things around, matching the various colors and shapes to create combinations, only to find yourself thinking, “this would be a lot better with some weird little googley-eyed creatures thrown into the mix?” Well, neither had I, in all honesty. But now that I’ve played Boomlings, shuffling around jewels or plain coloured blocks just won’t cut it anymore.
Boomlings is a colorful puzzle game developed by XDA Forum Member Zhenmuron. The objective is quite simple: Relocate the various different types of boomlings into groups of four or more to remove them from the board. The more you pop, the more points you earn. Be sure to make use of the various power-ups and special boomlings to pop as many as you can before backing yourself into a corner.
While this might not be the most innovative game around, it’s certainly nicely polished with some charming little animations on the boomlings themselves. It’s perfect if you have a few minutes to kill. The game runs on Android 2.2 upwards, and if you’d like to check out a short video of it in action, head on over to the original thread.
We’ve all played those games where you’re forced to wait around to let a particular scenario play out, whether it is waiting for crops to grow in farming games, or cities to grow in simulation games. And we’ve all just wanted to press an imaginary “fast forward” button in order to bypass these long delays.
Contrary to his username, XDA Senior Member StupidIdea actually had a clever idea. He developed GMD Speed Time, an app that hastens your device’s system clock. Initially created for his daughter to speed up her farming games, the app speeds up the process of various game scenarios that use the device clock as a reference.
When the app is loaded, your device’s clock will appear incorrect, but the time will revert back to normal when the app is closed. There are various clock speeds available in the app, ranging from x2 up to a maximum of x1000. Advertised as a farming game tool, the app will likely work on any other game that uses the device clock. Also note the app does require root permissions.
If you want to boost your in game time, grab GMD Speed Time from the application thread.
If you are looking for a recipe for fun, XDA Forum Member Dimmerg has a recommendation for you. He recommends that you try his Garden Troopers dish. To make this delicious dish Dimmerg has made the following recipe.
To try this fun and exciting game check out the Garden Troopers thread. This recipe for fun will keep you entertained for hours. With different difficulties and game modes, the challenges are lasting.

It´s almost impossible to not miss a great application, theme, tweak or game on XDA, and we count on you to help us finding the content you think it deserves to go to the Portal.
Do you think you know lots about music? Well then, take a look at Musikr, created by XDA member moikop. The game will choose one of your music tracks randomly and will place it amongst other four songs, guess the name and artist and have a good time with friends while playing.
The application comes in Spanish and English and by now only supports QVGA and HVGA resolutions but sure if you support developer with your feedback more resolutions may come. The game is presented in three play modes: Free, Arcade and Challenge and only can be downloaded at the original thread.

With Musikr, take the classic “Music Quiz” to another level!
You’ll have to test your knoledge about music. It will randomly pick a song out of your local music repertoire, play it, and put it on a list along with 4 songs selected randomly as well.
By now, it only supports “classic” Android phone screen sizes (like QVGA, HVGA… Supports from LDPI to HDPI). So if you try to play it on a tablet (with a resolution higher than 480×800), you’ll probably see everything messed up (Though, I haven’t tested it on any tablet ). You will need at least 5 songs in your local library. Also, it has only two languajes: English and Spanish

If you are fan of emulators, this will be of your liking. XDA member Badcam3 informed us about a Gameboy emulator for Windows Phone 7. The UI is really great, integrated to the point that you can see it as it was a native application and you can find games such as Wario, Pandas vs. Ninjas, Doodle Jump, Jwel, Shazam, Solitaire, and many more. If you go to the developer’s blog, you can download the app itself as well as a Game List Creator and read trough the hows to´s on topics such as set list of game, search for games and how to play a game.
If you liked this, please let the developer know your feedback.

I’ve never written about a game before. It’s not that I don’t like fun, I just don’t have much time to play games with my (not so) busy schedule. I’ve even been neglecting my Steam buddies for the last few weeks due to my schedule. My very busy schedule. Did I mention that I was busy?
What drew me the Noogra Nuts, developed by XDA member Oren Bengigi (user Obg1), is its simplicity and ability to be as addictive as many of the old 2D games that we all know and love. With a similar 2D engine to that of Pong or Brick Breaker, the aim of the game is to stop any falling nuts from hitting the ground, long enough that they will crack open and let you eat their delicious contents.
Now, this may sound like a game which is easy and lacks many pull factors. However, you’d be wrong. It’s popular, enjoyable, and a darn good challenge for one reason; You can never get all the nuts and you know you never will, but you can’t accept it!
This really is a game for those who want to kill a lot of time, and have a lot of fun doing so. If you would like to grab it yourself and show the developer some support, head to the original thread, hit up the Market, and leave a delightful message of gratitude for all those hours that you’ll now spend playing this game instead of World of Warcraft.
Do you feel sharp today? If you like math puzzles, here’s a good one that you might enjoy. XDA member amarkovits presents Scrambled Equations for our Android devices. It’s a brain challenge for math lovers, which works on a very interesting concept: you are given a value for which you have to find out the perfect equation. For example, if you are given a value of “19,” then you have to find out the right equation that gives the answer “19″ from the given balls. You have to complete this task in a limited amount of time. This app is great for learning purposes too, especially for children who are learning the basics of mathematics.
The game will grab your attention for sure. Please let the dev know your thoughts.

In each of these puzzles, you are given a number that you must construct out of several other numbers. You do this by taking the numbers and performing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division operations on them. Each number must be used in the calculations exactly once, and only these four operations listed may be used. You may parenthesize your expression however you wish. For example, 10 may be obtained from 1, 1, 2, and 3, with the expression (3+2)×(1+1).

Say Hello to a new World.
There are few games on mobile that are insanely addictive. Parallel Kingdom AOT, is by far the most intriguing one I have come across. PK comes across as a MMORG, which uses the GPS on your phone to place you in your actual location in game.
The game starts you off as an explorer beginning his/her journey. As you continue your adventure, you level up, get upgraded weapons and armor, and slay monsters day in day out. You constantly play alongside other players, from throughout the world, teaming with them to form kingdoms, cities and alliances.
Parallel Kingdom uses Google Maps as the background, and makes use of GPS satellites to place you in your real life location. New updates including the satellite map feature lead to you actually getting the sense that you are enjoying a high seas adventure with your mates, or leading an expedition through the Sahara desert, or struggling through the Amazon forest, slaying any monsters that come you way.
The great thing about PK is that you continue in the same place you leave. So you don’t have to worry about getting back to where you log off. Perblue devs have managed to create an amazing game through almost a 3-year period.

One of the great selling points about Android phones is that they are fully capable of displaying Flash content. Nonetheless, there are still many Flash-based web games which will not work with Android for one simple reason: the controls have not been correctly implemented to allow their use on a mobile device.
Normally, you have to wait for the Flash developer to manually make his or her contribution to the online world friendly with our phones and tablets. However, XDA member Kazeari has created an extremely useful free application, which is designed to allow Android users to use almost any Flash game, regardless of whether or not they have been written to work for the platform.
To try Flash Game Player out, Kazeari recommends having a high-end Android device and Adobe Flash 10.1 installed. The application allows .swf files to be played from your device’s SD card. More information is available in the project thread.
