Chrooma Developer Releases A Live Wallpaper That’s Perfect For Material Design-Loving Lollipop Users

Chrooma Developer Releases A Live Wallpaper That's Perfect For Material Design-Loving Lollipop Users

Over the summer, we banged out heads against our computer screens just to feel closer to the sweet upcoming beauty known formally as Material Design. Then 5.0 arrived and over-the-air updates starting rolling out. Now many of us have had months for the newness to wear off.

But some of us just can’t get enough. We want material all the things, not just apps. It’s an insatiable desire that not even Google, with its inconsistent app designs, is able to fill. But there’s a developer out there that has contributed another way to satisfy the craving, by releasing the Chrooma Live Wallpaper.

This live wallpaper comes from the makers of Chrooma, a puzzle game that’s as material as any app. It should look familiar to anyone who has played that title, but you don’t need to have done so to appreciate the aesthetic. Chrooma sticks a stack of four triangles, which look like the corners of folded paper, on your background with the points facing upwards. Every time you return back to the homescreen, the colors change. And if you linger around for too long, the triangles slowly start to move up and down.

As far as animations go, that’s it. Chrooma Live Wallpaper is subtle. Its primary purpose is to look pretty on Lollipop devices, and I’d say it succeeds. Sure, it looks good on older versions of Android as well, but that’s neither here nor there.

Unlike the game it’s based on, the Chrooma live wallpaper isn’t free. Getting those triangles on your homescreen will cost 99 cents.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it’s like to live without 4G LTE – or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic Could Be The Roguelike Retro RPG Of Your Dreams/Nightmares

Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic Could Be The Roguelike Retro RPG Of Your Dreams/Nightmares

Roguelike games have become a big deal lately, and several notable ones have come to Android including bit Dungeon II and Wayward Souls. The latest title to migrate to Android is Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic, which gets rave reviews on Steam. It’s a little pricey at $6.99, but you should at least watch the video below. It as much a performance piece as it is a game promo.

Being a Roguelike game means a few things—retro graphics, procedural dungeon generation, and most importantly, permadeath. If you die in Pixel Heroes, you die in real life have to start over. There are more than 30 different character classes to unlock, so starting over frequently isn’t a bad thing necessarily. You get to experience a lot of different styles of gameplay if you try different classes each time.

You can tell a lot of thought went into the design of this game, even with the simple retro graphics. The NPCs have well-written dialog and there are a ton of amusing random events. Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic won’t be for everyone, but it might be for you. Yes, you.

Ryan is a tech/science writer, skeptic, lover of all things electronic, and Android fan. In his spare time he reads golden-age sci-fi and sleeps, but rarely at the same time. His wife tolerates him as few would. He’s the author of a sci-fi novel called The Crooked City, which is available on Amazon and Google Play.
