There are no shortage of puzzle games involving blocks, and Mosaique is the latest block-based puzzler to grace our screens. It takes a minimalistic approach to things, and it’s the pride of Vraxis moon colonists. That’s right, it’s a puzzle game made by moon men, and after spending some time with the game it’s pretty safe to say it’s out of this world…
Up for review today is the ArmourDillo Hybrid Protective Case for the Google Nexus 4. The specific unit for review was sent to us by MobileFun, which is an online retailer for mobile accessories.
The Google Nexus 4, as you probably know, features a glass backing, which makes it very susceptible to scratches and cracks. As a result, many Nexus 4 owners quickly protect it with a case, but there many Nexus 4 cases available, so it is important to find the one that satisfies your needs.
The ArmourDillo case is a rugged two piece case that offers stellar protection for the Nexus 4. One unique feature specific to the case is the fact that it offers a kickstand, which can be popped out to prop up the Nexus 4 to view videos. The kickstand can definitely come in handy if the device is charging, but you want it propped on your desk. If you are watching a video from your desk, then the kickstand can be used to let it stand while you sit comfortably watching. If you take out the last layer of protection, you are left with a simple black rubber skin. Some owners may prefer this option since it is thinner than the complete case, but you lose some protection and the kickstand.
I personally enjoy the fact that it is easy to add and remove the second protective layer, depending if I want the extra protection and bulk or not. It features many grooves (hence the ArmourDillo name), which offers a better grip than you would normally expect from handling the device without a case.
The one aspect of the ArmourDillo Hybrid case that bothers me is the fact that the buttons are harder to press. The protective rubber of the case extends over the volume and power buttons, so you will have to press relatively hard to increase the volume or turn on the screen. For some, this is a huge nuisance and others may hardly notice this lack of functionality. I generally prefer cases that have cut-outs where the buttons reside, since this offers for easier access.
The black ArmourDillo Hybrid protective case through MobileFun costs $16.49, which is a fair price point for such a case. If you are looking for excellent protection and something with a kickstand, the ArmourDillo option is something worth considering. However, if you prefer a minimalist sleek case, then you will want to keep looking for something thinner. Overall, I would rate the Nexus 4 ArmourDillo case 4 stars out of 5.

Android live wallpapers bring animation and action to the normally static home screen. While most live wallpaper userswouldn’t say having a standard image is boring, they would argue that seeing movement on the home screen – however small or whatever effect that can have on battery life – offers more eye candy.
Cuki HD Live Wallpaper illustrates that point fairly well. Developed by SK Planet, Cuki HD is actually a showcase app for live wallpapers with 3D effects. There are currently four appealing titles from Cuki centered on different themes – the circus, fairy tale, optic ball, and soccer – and the promise of more live wallpapers on the way.
All of the Cuki HD live wallpapers have layers of objects based around that theme. In the soccer edition, three players are positioned from one edge of the screen to the next, and they appear to be passing a ball on a plane of red triangles. The live wallpapers feature multiple layers of objects that change when the phone is moved or the user switches between screens. In the case of the fantasy circus, acrobats float in the background, and tilting a screen in different directions repositions a performing elephant.
Cuki HD at the moment exhibits four beautiful and completely free Android live wallpapers. The app might feature a few premium titles in the future, but if they’re of similar quality the ones currently in the app for free, they can count on at least one sale from this writer. Android 2.1 and higher devices can download the Cuki HD app to get links to the suite of live wallpapers.

The official app for one of the most popular and trusted tech news websites on the internet, CNET.com, has made its grand entrance into the Android Market a few days ago. The app’s layout is clean and easy to navigate, thanks to the crafty hands of Treemo Labs‘ Ian Clifton who CNET/CBS hired to develop the project.
The CNET Experience
The CNET News app has a whole lot of great features that you would expect from such a popular website as well as a few really cool features you probably weren’t expecting. Let’s...
Guns n’ Glory is a tower defense game that requires adaptive strategy as well as shooting. Players control bandits who kill settlers on foot, horseback, in wagons, and in gold-carrying trailers. Some bandits are more effective at stopping certain types of settlers, so finding the right balance is important since letting too many travelers escape will attract the law.
In addition to being one of the rare tower defense games where players assume the role of the bad guys, Guns n Glory also has the benefit of not having stationary towers. Bandits are set up along various points of each map and often must be moved in order to keep pace with the waves of settlers. There are three types of bandits – gun wielding cowboys, dynamite-throwing Mexicans, and arrow-shooting Indians (the dialogue is kind of stereotypically offensive, by the way). As the game progresses, players can also acquire cannons, train-mounted machine guns, and upgrades for better attacks.
I like Guns n’ Glory for its fun style of gameplay but it is somewhat limited because the game persistently force closes on some phones (an update released today should address most errors). However, Guns n’ Glory still lacks the ability to easily move through large maps or set varying degrees of difficulty. Thankfully, the makers promise updates that will include new maps, so gameplay is less likely to become stale. Download the free version of Guns n’ Glory and put it through the ringer for a day or two. Then purchase the ad-free version for 2.99 Euro if it you like it.
