The RGBbot Live Wallpaper is a cheezy, silly, and quite possibly annoying little live wallpaper to go with my non-cheezy, non-silly and hopefully non-annoying games RGBbot & Microchip Monsters.
(Note that as a Live Wallpaper, it works on devices with Android 2.1 or higher)
Year of the Dragon Theme from 2012
(also sort of promoting Microchip Monsters...):
Year of the Rabbit Theme from 2011:
The bots have new bunny costumes and are grabbing Chinese characters!
Left: the green bot is going after a "Colorize plugin".
Right: green bot jumping, blue bot waiting for the "Fury plugin" to drop!
What does the RGBbot Live Wallpaper do?
Three little bots walk around, grab "plugin devices" and jump when you tap the screen. Stay tuned for updates!
How to use:
After downloading and installing, to use the Live Wallpaper tap MENU/Wallpaper/Live Wallpapers and then select "RGBbot Live Wallpaper".
Tap the Settings button to configure the Live Wallpaper. You can choose the floor shape (flat for phones like the Nexus One, or curved for HTC Sense phones, e.g. Desire, Incredible, etc. which have user interface buttons that would obscure the robots). And with the latest version, you can choose the original space theme, the holiday theme, the 2011 "Year of the Rabbit" theme, or the new 2012 "Year of the Dragon" theme.
It's kind of a cheezy Live Wallpaper, especially compared to some of the amazing wallpapers on the market, but hopefully it'll be mildly amusing. As always, tapping the screen will make the bots jump. They'll also busilly gather items that fall from the sky (in the holiday theme, they gather mysterious presents, and in the Year of the Rabbit theme the bots gather Chinese pictographs, sparkling plasma entities, and more!). Let me know of any problems (via Android Market support email address or on twitter).
