Take a Trip Down Memory Lane with Killer Instinct Soundboard
One of the many types of apps available for Android are soundboards, which are in essence recollections of sounds from different sources like movies, games, TV shows, among others. XDA member XaviorPenguin has just released the second version of his own soundboard. The dev thought that Nintendo’s ever popular fighting game Killer Instinct was famous enough to deserve its own. Most of the sounds from the first game are in there including the different levels of combo chains, character names, and the ever popular “C-C-C-Combo Breaker!”
Very simple UI and good quality of sound bites, make this app a must have for old fans of the game.
Searching the Android Market, I had found Soundboards for various games and movies and actors/actresses. I found one that wasn’t available…so, I decided to attempt to make one.
I, with the help of a soundboard tutorial, created the Killer Instinct Soundboard.
As far as I know, this is complete, for me. I may later add more sounds as I find them but for now, the current sounds are set in stone.
