Third Blade is a nice hack and slash type of game. There are no quests, no items to collect or princesses to save. Just battle your way through the different maps and there are enough to keep you tapping your phone’s screen all night. You will be up against different types of monsters that will grab, spit, and scream at you. Each map is playable in Normal, Hard or Hell mode.
Robotek is a fun and addictive turn-based game that I recently found in the Android Market. It is like playing a slot machine and Scorched Earth combined. Okay. Maybe not Scorched Earch but I could not think of any other turn-based game at the time of this writing.
The game can be confusing at first with all the icons and symbols but do not get intimidated by these. After you have finished the tutorial and played a few games, you will realize that it is a simple game that involves all of strategy, game mechanics, and – ultimately – luck.
Last night I was searching the Android Market for a fun ‘tower defense’-style of game. The search returned dozens of results but somehow my index finger ended up tapping on Empire Defense. It was nothing like I expected. I only wanted a classic tower defense game and ended up with something a little different to my surprise.
The Android app for the LG Application Store is broken! While it works well when viewing the available apps, once I try to download one and is prompted to sign-in, it won’t let me. The authentication process doesn’t work. It keeps on telling me that the ID and/or password does not match. Of course, I have registered and already have used that same account on my desktop.
WordPress for Android, as the name implies, is a mobile blogging application built specifically for Android-based smartphones.
It is a free and an open source app. You can download it at the Android Market right from your phone, or at http://android.wordpress.org/download/.

ROOTing a LG Optimus One Android Phone is easier now, thanks to z4root by Ryan ZA. All you have to do is download/install the z4root application from the Android Market.
The z4root is a one-click-root type of app for dummies that seems to have been made specially for non-developers and/or those who dread the alien-like instructions of how to root an Android manually. I would sure like to try it manually but don’t want to mess up my “kinda new” LG Optimus One. I remember those days when I tried to re-compile a kernel for Red Hat 9 just to get the pretty bootsplash screen working on my machine. It was a success after only how many hours of getting it wrong.
