Who Wants to be a Millionaire Clone for Android
As always, we’ve brought you some great developments here at the portal lately. From WP7 & Android triple boot for the legendary HD2 to the untethered webOS port for the Nexus 7, we’ve seen plenty of hacks and ROMs to satisfy our geeky sides. Now, it’s time to take a break and have some fun with a simple game. Not too long ago, we went snowball fighting on our Android devices, but today, how about something a bit more challenging for our brains? You’ve been cordially invited to play ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’ by XDA Forum Member bogmix.
While you will not exactly get to be on TV or win any real money, this free game for Android will give you a great time if you are a fan of the popular game show, or just like general knowledge quiz games. The game features over 5,000 questions (sorry, it’s still 4,001 short from being truly perfect), along with all the usual concepts from the show such as “Increase the chances,” “Help of the crowd,” and “Help of the Game God.” There is also a global leader-board, where you can show off your achievements and see those of other players.
The game is in active development, and the developer is planning on adding tablet optimization and the ability to add your own questions, as well as making it online capable. You can learn more and get the Play Store link in the forum thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
