Remember how we told you a follow-up to a certain game that involves rope burning would be coming soon? Well friends, the time has come for Burn the Rope: Worlds to land in the Android Market and onto your devices. In this iteration of the game, it features 100 brand-new levels, four different themed worlds including Jungle, Mechanical, Fantasy and Space; and an exciting brand new mini-game called Endless Burn. As in the original game, BTR: Worlds has players burn a rope with the flame only being able to burn upwards, so at times, you’ll have to rotate your device to burn in the direction you need to burn the rope. Sounds simple right? Not quite as now you will have obstacles like bugs impeding your path of blaze to glory.

The game is available for free in Market and is a 13MB download. You can find the download link, QR code, and some screenshots after the break. Go on, ropes need to be burned!   » Read the rest

Have You Ever Wanted to Use Your Android Device as a Universal Remote? You’re In Luck

tagged , , ,

Today, Griffin and Dijit announced Android support for their Beacon universal remote, allowing any Android device, tablet or smartphone, to serve as a universal remote for home theater equipment. The Beacon Universal Remote Control System is run through a free application found in the Android Market, the Beacon unit will run $69.99 – A hell of a lot cheaper than the Logitech Harmony remote.

Using both hardware and software, this universal remote utilizes a Bluetooth connection to transfer commands from your Android device to the Beacon, which sends the signal via IR. The Beacon is capable of transmitting IR signals to all of your home theater equipment: TV, DVD/Blu-ray player, amplifier, and set top box etc., making the need for multiple remotes unnecessary.

The Android App is freely available in the Android Market, but does require that your device is on Android 2.3.3 or higher. Some older devices may not be compatible, but most all Android tablets should fit the bill. Hit the Market link below to check out what Griffen and Dijit have cooked up. If it is something you digg, you may want to go find yourself the Griffin Beacon hardware unit. Looks pretty damn cool to me.

Amazon UK Reschedules Galaxy Nexus Availability to December 2nd

by Stacy Bruce on
tagged , , , ,

Uh, oh. Apparently Amazon UK jumped the gun on when the SIM free Samsung Galaxy Nexus would become available. The originally planned availability date of November 17th for pre-orders has been changed, the new availability date is now December 2nd. This is a bit odd as Samsung has already confirmed Nov. 17 as the official UK launch so you could most likely expect to see it available through other vendors then. If you have already placed your order, unfortunately you will have to wait until the beginning of next month to receive shipment. This isn’t the first time Amazon UK has flubbed the date so anything could happen between now and then.

Any of you readers placed an order already?

Quick Look At Amazon’s Free App Of The Day: 3D Bio Ball HD

by Spencer McClendon on

Amazon has done it again with another very good selection for their free app of the day. 3D Bio Ball HD is an awesome throw back of Marble Madness for me. As a kid I loved that game, and now that I am older it is really nice to see a game like 3D Bio Ball HD. Now even though this game is different from Marble Madness on the old NES. It is one of the better labyrinth-style games on the Android platform.

The game opens up with your choice of campaign or quick play mode. I suggest you start with campaign mode as it gives you the much needed tutorial as well as the story line of the game. I use traverse the playing field, you are given objects to collect like; bolts and coins that can later be used in the shop to upgrade your Bio Ball. As with all labyrinth-style games there are obstacles to watch out for and I’m not just talking about holes in the floor, they got creative on this one!
