Featured Android App Review: Live Pixels [Live Wallpaper]


Every now and then it’s nice to play an 8-bit game on your Android device, but how about an 8-bit live wallpaper? That’s exactly what inHause Games created with Live Pixels. We are already familiar with inHause Games as we previously reviewed their other awesome live wallpaper called YourCity 3D. Live Pixels is actually a bunch of live wallpapers and you can choose which ones you want to display on your homescreen. It’s got everything from fireworks, explosions, and even a flying cat. There are 14 in all:

  • App Icon
  • Bug Zapper
  • City
  • Explosion
  • Fireflies
  • Fire
  • Fireworks
  • Flocking
  • Nyan Cat
  • Snake
  • Snow
  • Text
  • Thunderstorm
  • Water

Select them all, and you will always have a different wallpaper everytime you turn on your phone. Of course, depending on your mood, you can go with one or just a few. You can also set the duration of each scene and choose the words you want for the text scene. In between scenes is really cool since you will see all sorts of flying pixels, which can be mesmerizing.

Again, Live Pixels isn’t about wowing you with spectacular graphics, but it will give you that old school retro feel with full 3D hardware acceleration. It’s priced at 99-cents, which is a steal when you consider how many scenes it offers, plus inHouse’s support is top notch, which means even more scenes with future updates.  There is a free version that only offers App Icon, Fireflies, Flocking, Text, and Water, but you can still see all the others in preview mode. Check out my hands on video below as well as the trailer video, and hit one of the download links to get started. As always, let me know what you think.

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
