2023.06.03 00:53 DuckTwoRoll P6P - 1.5 Year Review

So I've owned my P6P for just over a 1.5 years now, so its possible to begin giving longer-term reviews.
Pros
OS: Amazing. The slick version of Android on Pixels is still (imo) the best version of it available from a usability and lack of cluttespam app standpoints. All of the other built in features are also nice (unused app notifications, smart app suggestions, general UI). By far the best part of the phone.
Buttons: Great. Still work very well and their position still makes sense.
Case: Great. Durable. The camera bar is better than the cluster seen on other phones.
Touch screen is still excellent.
Camera(s): Great. High quality photos solid low-light. Translation/QR finding/speed are all good. Slow-mo is more than a gimmick.
Performance: The good. The phone is still able to run any app without difficulty. I haven't noticed any direct slow-downs, but there are some things I will touch on in the cons area related to this.
Cons
I'm going to take some heat for this, but its this has been my reality of ownership.
Battery: Garbage. It's partly what inspired my to make this post, but the P6P has been a major letdown in the battery department. https://ibb.co/K9Pq7zD https://ibb.co/THNnjtQ. Twitch was running in the background (on Audio only) for a total of 4 hours. It does the same thing with pretty much every app. Every couple months a new patch will come out and it will be better for ~1 month before being garbage again. Its also extremely picky about what cables it charge with. The massive nominal battery size also means its very slow to charge even with the correct charger (which wasn't even included, wtf).
Finger print sensor: Bad. I mean at this point its a meme.
Network/Connection: Horrible. God forbid you ever need to use this phone outside of wi-fi range, as the dreaded cell-standby will absolutely crater your battery if you can even get enough signal to do anything in the first place. It will also heat up the phone like crazy, leading to the next point. I'll be on a 1 bar of 5g or 2 bars of 4g and my brother with an IP12 will have full bars (same carrier and plan).
Performance: The bad. This phone gets hot fast, and once it does performance craters. One several occasions I've have to close videos while charging because the phone begins to overheat.
TLDOverall
5/10 - This does not feel like a flagship phone, and I honestly had a better time owning a Moto X Pure (if anyone even remembers those).

2023.06.02 23:54 Mowlamentum Screen replacement recommendations

Disaster struck today and I accidentally broke the screen of my pixel 6 pro 😭 Can anyone recommend a good screen replacement kit or place to buy the part from? I was going to buy the ifixit kit (https://store.ifixit.co.uk/products/google-pixel-6-pro-screen-genuine) but that’s out of stock

2023.06.02 23:41 creding10 Stuck in Beta

I joined the beta after seeing an article that there may be an update with it that could solve a yellowish-green screen flicker on my Pixel 6 Pro. The beta did not solve it, and now Google support won't troubleshoot the screen flicker issue as I'm on a pre-release version of Android and need to go back to the stable release. However, opting out of the beta did not provide me with an update back to Android 13. I contacted Google support again to try to troubleshoot leaving the beta and they had me factory reset my phone twice over the course of a week and then told me that they actually can't troubleshoot it because I'm on a pre-release version of Android. Does anybody have anything that's worked for them to opt out of the beta? When I open the Android beta page, it tells me my Pixel 6 Pro is "not enrolled" and gives me an option to opt in, but my phone says it's currently up to date with Android version UpsideDownCake and Android security update April 5, 2023.
The build number I'm on is UPB2.230407.014.A1

2023.06.02 23:28 Zoda_Popinski Does G2 Tensor devices (7, 7 Pro, 7a) still run hot on CalyxOS (sans Google Play) ?

I'm looking into upgrading my Pixel 4a(USB C connector is a bit wonky).
Pixel 7a is the obvious choice, but reviews implies that the G2 Tensor runs hot and the battery life is subpar.
My Pixel 4a running CalyxOS without Google Play is an an absolute dream. Runs smooth and I still have 2 days battery life with 8h SOT. So I was wondering if G2 devices running CalyxOS sans Google Play might have a similar gain?

2023.06.02 19:46 MishaalRahman Android 14 adds new APIs that apps can use to check your phone's battery health (YMMV)

I bought a used Pixel 7 Pro recently and thought it was a shame that Google's battery health feature hasn't been released. I think it'd be nice to see how many charge cycles it's had before I bought it or what the estimated % of its original battery capacity is. Fortunately, Google added new APIs in Android 14 that make it possible to get this data...kinda!
For context, when Google released the first Android 13 QPR1 beta, I discovered a new "Battery Health" screen tucked away in Settings. It was just a placeholder at first, but it got worked on a bit throughout the Android 13 QPR betas before being removed in Android 14 Beta 1.
However, like with many features Google develops for Pixel phones, the underlying APIs are or will become part of AOSP. In this case, I identified several new APIs added to the BatteryManager class that pertain to battery health. These include APIs to get the:
Of these APIs, only the first two (charging cycle count & charging status) are "public", ie. they're available through the Android SDK provided by Google. The remaining four are marked as system APIs, which means they're not available in the Android SDK. That's not a big problem as there are ways around that, but the bigger problem with non-public APIs is that they're usually inaccessible to third-party apps due to missing permissions.
In this case, though, I found that these four APIs can be accessed by any app that holds the BATTERY_STATS permission. BATTERY_STATS has a protection level of signatureprivilegeddevelopment which means it can be granted to apps signed with the platform certificate (signature), apps placed in priv-app directories (privileged), or apps that have been manually granted the permission through ADB (development). The last option is viable even on unrooted devices, which means the permission can be granted to a third-party app that can utilize these APIs to retrieve battery health data.
Using that knowledge, developer narektor created a proof-of-concept, open-source app (called "Batt") that simply reports the battery health data returned from these new APIs in Android 14. You can download the app from GitHub for free. After installing it, run this command to grant it the BATTERY_STATS permission:
adb shell pm grant com.porg.batt android.permission.BATTERY_STATS 
Alternatively, if you install it with the -g flag (ie. adb install -g), it'll be granted the permission upon installation. Or if you have Shizuku set up, the app can grant itself the permission.
Here's an example of what kind of data the app can report (note this screenshot is of a slightly older version). Now here's where the YMMV comes in: I don't know how accurate the stats will be on your device. The app just reports what the APIs return, which in turn depends on whether the stats are actually tracked by the charging IC and whether the HAL supports this feature.
For example, the "first usage date" reported on all the phones I tested is obviously incorrect. For some reason, Google set the range to be from 2020-12-01 to 2038-01-19, so if the value reports 2020-12-01, that's just because it's the default. (If your device reports an obviously incorrect value, like the Unix epoch, the app hides it until you tap "show" at the bottom.)
As an alternative, Tasker by João Dias is also adding these battery health stats soon. You'll be able to get them through the "Get Battery Info" action in case you want to run some automations based on this info.
Enjoy, and don't blame me if you're getting inaccurate results! Hopefully Google bakes this directly into Settings, and hopefully OEMs configure their devices to correctly report this info to the OS so we can all have accurate battery health data available to us.
And yes, I'm aware that X or Y OEM already offers battery health reporting. What's beneficial here is that there's now a standard API and a standard way for vendors to report this info to the OS.

2023.06.02 18:38 AgentVoyd7 Google needs to get their quality control together

I am about to be on my 5th Pixel 7 Pro. My last 4 have had data issues, overheating issues, screen flickering, and the infamous black screen of death. I'm sticking with Pixel 1. Because I'm locked into a contract and 2. Because I love their phones, just not their lack of quality control. Please, Google, let this 5th one be the one. I've noticed many others talking about these issues as well, so I know I'm not the only one.

2023.06.02 16:24 EventideGamesStudio How Do Solo Game Developers Make Video Games?

Hello Everyone!
How Do Solo Game Developers Make Video Games?
TL;DR
The process solo developers go through to build a game breaks down into 6 phases: Idea, Prototype, Iteration, Polish, Release, and Post-Release. Each phase impacts the game in a specific way.
  1. Idea: Have an idea for a game to create.
  2. Prototype: Build a small, quick, playable version of the game that reflects the game’s core idea.
  3. Iteration: Assemble and expand on the game’s core gameplay loop.
  4. Polish: Integrate extra details that make the game pop and stand out.
  5. Release: Share the game for others to play.
  6. Post-Release: Expand, Maintain, or leave the game as is.
This post is a direct copy from my website here.
Let’s jump right into it!
How do solo game developers make video games? Game development is a large topic to cover with many nuances. Today, we’ll walk through the process that solo game developers go through to develop the game itself.
Why is this important for solo game developers to understand this process?
Like the gaming industry, you have limited resources. Your time. Your money. Your effort. Your skills. Unlike the industry though, you are the driving force behind your game. You are responsible for everything. Marketing. Business. Art. Engineering. Building the game itself is a tiny part of the process. But, it is the core of the entire process.
How does the gaming industry build games? It breaks down into 6 phases:
Where does the game fit into each of these phases? Which ones are specific to the game themselves? These are vague and we can do better. Let’s break it down further.
Here’s how each of the 6 game industry phases relate to the game itself:
  1. Idea -> Idea
  2. Pre-Production -> Prototype
  3. Production -> Iteration
  4. Post-Production -> Polish
  5. Release -> Release
  6. Post-Release -> Post-Release
Let’s walk through each one of these game phases.

Idea

The idea is the thought or scenario for a game. This is the backbone and vision for the game. The more catchy, fun, and original it is, the better. The goal of this phase is to have an idea that you build a game off of.
It can come from anywhere: video game, board game, personal background, an experience, your brain, random idea generator, AI, players, friends, a team, group of people, family, etc.
The game idea we are going to use throughout this blog is for a survival crafting game.

Prototype

A prototype is the smallest, quickest, playable version of the game that reflects the game’s core idea. The goal of this phase is two fold: Build the prototype and decide whether this prototype is worth growing into a full game.
Let’s elaborate on the definition of what makes up the prototype.
Smallest
Smallest meaning you only want the core game elements present in the prototype.
How do you do this?
Start by disassembling the game idea into its core gameplay loop. A gameplay loop contains the main tasks that the player will be doing throughout the game.
In a survival crafting game, the core gameplay loop would look like this: gather resources, craft items and weapons, defeating enemies, and repeat.
The next step is to break down each task into systems that make the task possible. Then, you build those systems.
For example, to gather a wood resource, what systems do you need to get wood? Here’s a few you would need:
  1. To get wood from a tree, you need a tree to exist. Build a tree.
  2. How do you interact with the tree? You need to hit it. Need a system to contain a way to trigger actions with the keyboard and mouse. Then, you need to use that system to trigger actions like hit. You need a system on a tree to recognize the hits from you.
  3. How does the tree know when to turn into wood? When it’s destroyed, after 3 hits. Then, you’ll need the tree to have a health system.
  4. How do you get to the tree? You need to move to it. Need a player controller for the player to move around.
  5. Once you get the wood, how do you pick it up? Need a pick up system to pick up nearby resources.
  6. Once you pick up the wood, where is it stored? Need an inventory system to track the wood you’ve picked up.
You continue this process with each task until you have gone through each one.
Quick & Playable
We want a fast way to play and test out these tasks and the game itself. The two ways to do this are with a physical prototype or with a digital prototype.
The physical prototype is building the pieces and components that make up the game. Then, using them to interact with rules (which are in your head) and the environment. This method is quick and tangible. Unfortunately, it doesn’t scale well. It doesn’t work for all games (like our survival crafting game). You’ll need to convert it into a digital format anyway for the rules, systems, etc.. It’s hard to share and get feedback. For these reasons, solo developers favor the digital prototype.
The quickest way to create a playable digital prototype is with a game engine.
What is a game engine?
It’s a software tool embedded with many features and functionality that you build your game on top of. A good way to think about it is with an analogy: a game engine to a game is what a foundation is to a house. They are convenient, powerful, and ready to use (little to no setup required).
If you are new to game development, use a game engine. Picking one is a whole topic in itself. Depends on:
  1. What matters to you (e.g. support, tutorials, asset store, open source)
  2. What kind of game you’re building (e.g. 2D vs. 3D, pixel art vs realistic)
  3. Your skills and experience you have (e.g. programming).
Do your research and pick one. Don’t think about it too long.
Reflects the game’s core idea
Are you building systems related to the game idea and the game you want to make? If so, keep it. Else, drop it.
Using our survival crafting game example, a system to transition from day to night and back is nice. But, the game doesn’t depend on it.
This also includes the art. Use simple images for 2D and basic shapes, like spheres, capsules and cubes, for 3D. Remember we want small, quick and playable. This also avoids scope creep, a process of adding features until the game it’s too big and too complex to finish.
When you finish the prototype, it’s going to feel underwhelming to play.
Why is that? We have expectations.
First, we have expectations of ourselves. We know we can do better.
Second, we have expectations based on the games we’ve played. We’ve had great experiences and memories playing these amazing feeling and looking games. This prototype is not that.
This is 100% normal.
Remember the end goal of the prototype phase: decide whether to transform this prototype into a full game.
Deciding this is up to you and your goals. Is it fun? Does it offer a different and unique experience? Play around with it. Explore the space of the game idea. Don’t be afraid to experiment. This is when you should share it with people and get their thoughts with a playtest. As this blog relates to development of the game itself, we are going to skip it right now and move on to the iteration phase.

Iteration

This is when you start to build up the game. You will spend a majority of your time here assembling and expanding the core gameplay loop. You’ll work on elements of the game that not only add breath but also depth.
For our survival crafting game example, during this phase you might do the following:
  1. Make more enemies (Zombies, Raiders, Mercenaries)
  2. Add more resources to gather (rock, metal)
  3. Make more weapons (swords, throwing knives, guns)
  4. Create more items (first aid kits, pickaxe, torch)
  5. Expand crafting to make interesting weapons and items (bottle + gas + cloth = molotov cocktail)
  6. Create puzzles to complete (Need key to unlock safe, solve riddle to find rare resources)
  7. Start a progression system or skill tree (Learn to craft more items, enhance melee abilities)
  8. Make more levels (dense green forest, snowy mountain, dry arid desert)
  9. Incorporate art assets (rocks, trees, buildings, first aid kits, swords, guns, zombies, birds, bears, etc.)
  10. Create a menu with settings (audio, video, gameplay)
  11. In-Game UI
  12. Day and Night Cycle
  13. Hunger, Stamina & Hydration system
  14. Interesting enemy AI (enemies maneuver in groups, find cover, attack with different weapons, reposition themselves)
  15. Narrative (why are you trying to survive?)
  16. Vehicles (Cars, motorcycles)
A key part of this phase (as the title suggests) is to iterate. Build. Test. Analyze. Repeat.
Build a system or improve an aspect of the game. Test to make sure it works. Analyze if it improves the game and aligns with the game’s idea. If it does, great! Move to the next thing. If not, why not? Was it not fun? Hard to use? Decide whether to improve it, shelve it or drop it.
With your time, effort and dedicated focus, the game will grow. It will morph into the game you are expecting. The game may scratch the itch but is not satisfying. It’s missing that extra umph that makes it special and impactful. This is where polish comes in.

Polish

Polish is the process of making the game look pretty, feel good to play, and elevate it to the next level. An important step before beginning the polish phase is that the game should be close to finished. Adding more content, systems and assets into the game puts you back into the iteration phase. Polish can be a distraction if done too early.
What do you do during this phase then? Integrate those extra details that make the game pop.
Using our survival crafting game example, this could include but is not limited to:
  1. Ambient sounds (water flowing, birds chirping)
  2. Music (tense music when an animal chases you, cheerful music when walking through a meadow, creepy music when walking around in the dark)
  3. Sound effects (firing a gun, chopping a tree, walking on rocky terrain, “oof” and “uggs” when taking damage)
  4. Particles (gun’s muzzle flash, wood chunks fly off of trees when hit, smoke rising from a fire)
  5. Post-processing (red bloody outline on screen when getting hit, chromatic aberration when feeling woozy)
  6. Screen shake (gentle sway when running, violent shake when taking damage)
  7. Visual effects (grenade explosions, x-ray vision)
  8. Animations (squash & stretch, player running, UI Transitions)
At this point, the game should look, feel and play like the game idea you had to begin with. If it doesn’t, that’s ok. Go back to the iteration phase to add content or keep adding polish. It’s rare to get it right the first time. Take a few passes through the iteration and polish phase to get it where you want it and are happy with it. Don’t be afraid to get feedback from others too.
Once you feel it’s ready, the next step is to put it into the player’s hands. Releasing it.

Release

Congrats, you’ve made it to the end! 🥳 Time to let the game shine and let your players play it. Releasing your game means to share it online for players to access it by put it on a marketplace.
For PC, a few locations are Steam, itch.io and Epic Games. For Mobile, there is the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. For consoles, there is Sony’s Playstation Store, Microsoft’s Xbox Store and Nintendo’s Store & eShop.

Post-Release

You finished the game. Where do you go from here? There are three options: Expand it, Maintain it, or Leave it as-is.
You can expand the game using updates or Downloadable Content (or DLC). This could be adding more to the game that you couldn’t fit or didn’t have time to put in before release.
Examples for our survival crafting game could be:
  1. Additional guns
  2. Cosmetic upgrades
  3. More game modes (like playing as an animal and hunting the player)
  4. A level editor
  5. Mod support
  6. New levels (like an abandoned metropolitan area.
You can maintain the game through bug fixes to improve the current player’s experience.
Examples could be:
  1. Prevent visual glitches
  2. Stopping enemies running through walls
  3. Fix the save system
  4. Prevent item duplication
  5. Fix the inventory
You could leave it as-is. The game is what it is. You get what you get and that’s it. No planned updates, fixes or DLC.
It depends on you, your goals and your time. It’s up to you on what to do next.

Summary

The process solo developers go through to build a game breaks down into 6 phases: Idea, Prototype, Iteration, Polish, Release, and Post-Release. Each phase impacts the game in a specific way.
  1. Idea: Have an idea for a game to create.
  2. Prototype: Build a small, quick, playable version of the game that reflects the game’s core idea.
  3. Iteration: Assemble and expand on the game’s core gameplay loop.
  4. Polish: Integrate extra details that make the game pop and stand out.
  5. Release: Share the game for others to play.
  6. Post-Release: Expand, Maintain, or leave the game as is.
I hope this provided a sneak peek behind the curtain of game development.

2023.06.02 15:08 kilgurin Missing calls

I have been using Google Fi for around 4 years, I have a pixel 5 at the moment but I over the past few months multiple people have said they had tried to call or text me and I do not see any record of it. They don't show up as spam,missed and I never see call screening prompts blocking it or something. Has anyone else had this happen or know a fix? This doesn't happen to anyone else I know and has been from people from different carriers.

2023.06.02 15:05 vhillman1 Unable to get Redpocket app to work

I've installed the redpocket app on my Google unlocked pixel 6a. After loading the app and filling in the username and password, which is auto filled by by Google password manager from previous redpocket website usage, the entire screen turns white and never shows anything. I've tried waiting 30 minutes and it's still white. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the with same result. I've cleared the app cache and data and relogged in with same result. Rebooted the phone and relogging into app has same result. I've also received a google play app update for the redpocket app today and it still isn't working.
Has anyone successfully gotten this working on a Google pixel 6a? Are any other steps that I could try to get this working? Thx.

2023.06.02 14:39 Past_Dinner Samsung Galaxy A13 stuck on "phone is starting" after a random reboot

Hello all! last night I was trying to use my Samsung Galaxy A13 and out of the blue it restarted. It wasn't like, a normal restart either since it took a couple minutes for it to turn on. Now, the phone is stuck on that "Phone is starting..." screen.
Phone: Samsung Galaxy A13 5G Model: SM-A136U If the IMEI and serial is needed, let me know. What triggered this: I opened my games folder to play Castle Cats.
Now, I'm not very knowledgeable in phones (I'm better with computers) so really all I could think to do for troubleshooting was googling the problem (nothing came up because google thought I was having boot loop problems. It is not stuck in a boot loop.) And restarting the phone myself (I didn't even know you could restart a phone on the starting screen!)
I'm not sure what to do at this point! Do I have to factory reset it? Should I contact Samsung support? Afaik I have no warranty on this phone (either because it expired or I just didn't bother, I can't remember)
TL;DR - Samsung Galaxy A13 is stuck on that "Phone is starting" screen after it rebooted out of nowhere. Google has no solutions and rebooting it myself didn't work.

New to these posts? Check out the first one from 178 weeks ago here.

Let's get to the games:

Laya's Horizon [Game Size: 546 MB] (Netflix-only)

Genre: Adventure / Casual / Flying - Offline
Orientation: Landscape
Required Attention: Full
tl;dr review by NimbleThor:
Laya’s Horizon is a fantastic 3D adventure flying game where we explore a large island, participate in mini-games, and complete quests – all by gliding from mountaintops using the cape on our back.
Starting at the top of a mountain, we tap to launch ourselves into a glide across a completely open game world. Scattered across the island are NPCs with quests or mini-games, airstreams that provide an uplift so we can glide further, and lots of hidden secrets.
The mini-games range from flying under bridges or close to threes without hitting any obstacles, to racing against NPC gliders. Bust most importantly, gliding around the island just feels amazing – especially when going fast. Although the core gameplay is different, it has a bit of that same feel as flying in “Sky: Children of the Light”.
Despite the many challenging quests, however, the gameplay feels more like a relaxing free-roam experience than something you’re meant to complete as fast as possible.
A few hours into the game, we also discover new mountain tops to launch from, and better capes with different advantages, which allows us to reach new areas of the map.
Laya’s Horizon is made by the developers of Alto’s Adventure, which shows in the game’s atmospheric art style and overall feel. Combined with the music, it creates a highly immersive experience.
The controls may seem daunting at first, but I quickly got the hang of them, and after an hour or two, they start to feel natural.
The biggest downside is that the game requires a beefy phone to run properly. Hopefully, it also expands with more islands down the road.
Laya’s Horizon is a premium game that can only be played with a Netflix subscription. If you already have Netflix, it’s a must-try for anyone fond of casual adventure games.
NOTE: if you don't have Netflix, it's not worth buying the subscription if you only plan on playing Laya’s Horizon.

Where's Samantha? [Total Game Size: 310 MB] (Free)

Genre: Platform / Puzzle - Offline
Orientation: Landscape
Required Attention: Some
tl;dr review by AlexSem:
Where's Samantha? is a beautiful and clever physics-based puzzle platformer that tells a romantic story of two living pieces of fabric who brave increasingly dangerous challenges in order to eventually reunite.
The game takes place in a surreal and colorful textile world full of gaps, springs, levers, buttons, gates, moving platforms, and other interactive objects. There are also plenty of dangerous traps that we need to overcome, including spike pits, rotating saw blades, shooting cannons, and even laser turrets.
Starting as an easy "walk in the park", the game gradually turns into a deadly obstacle course that requires some serious platforming skills to survive.
Throughout our journey, we can make use of an unusual gameplay mechanic that allows our character to split into two, or even three separate pieces of fabric that we can then operate independently. This enables us to solve complex puzzles that involve interacting with multiple remote objects simultaneously.
What’s more, our weight and physics change when splitting up, which means we can apply a large force to doors and platforms when playing as a single character, or split up so we can jump higher to get over obstacles.
What I like the most about the game is its amazing visual style, where every item we see and interact with is hand-drawn to resemble a real-world physical object. Add to this the game’s atmospheric music, crisp sound effects, responsive controls, fluid animations, and an absolutely amazing voice-over narration by an award-winning actor – and you have yourself one of the most aesthetically pleasing experiences you can hope for from a mobile game.
Where's Samantha? shows occasional ads, with a $0.99 to disable them and a $3.99 iAP to unlock the full game.
It's rare to find such a high-quality game on mobile, so if you enjoy puzzles and platformers, I can easily recommend checking it out.

Retro City Rampage DX [Game Size: 29 MB] ($4.99)

Genre: Action / Arcade - Offline
Orientation: Landscape
Required Attention: Full
tl;dr review by AlexSem:
Retro City Rampage DX is an old-school racing and shooting arcade game that draws heavy inspiration from the famous Grand Theft Auto series. It features lots of pixelated violence, energetic 8-bit soundtracks, hectic action, and tons of references to movies and video games of the past.
Playing as a henchman for a powerful crime lord who is robbing yet another bank, we quickly find ourselves dragged into a dangerous cascade of events that only get weirder when time-traveling and other ridiculous sci-fi elements get introduced.
I personally stopped paying attention to the story after a while, as it mostly served as a background for all the crazy events taking place, and as an excuse to reference endless iconic characters from popular franchises.
Just like in GTA, there’s a lot happening very quickly - shooting, racing, fighting, stealing vehicles, robbing banks, chasing the police, participating in minigames, and much much more. The game doesn’t restrict itself to a specific genre, instead just mashing together various elements from all the retro hits of the past. And it somehow actually works.
If we get bored by the fast-paced story mode, we can freely roam the city to do whatever we want, or hone our skills in various arcade challenges.
Unfortunately, this mobile port of the game isn’t perfect. Everything looks too tiny on small screens, and the touch controls aren’t comfortable when we need to react ultra-quickly. So it’s highly recommended to use a Bluetooth controller.
Retro City Rampage DX is a premium game that costs $4.99 on iOS. It’s a great tribute to the classic games of the past, and it succeeds at inducing a deep level of nostalgia while providing the exact type of highly entertaining gameplay experience seasoned gamers grew up with.

Pickle Pete: Survivor [Game Size: 248 MB] (Free)

Genre: Arcade / Bullet-Hell - Offline
Orientation: Portrait + some Landscape
Required Attention: Full
tl;dr review by NimbleThor:
Pickle Pete is a reverse bullet-hell roguelike that combines the over-the-top chaotic gameplay of Brotato with the permanent character progression of Archero for a surprisingly fun gameplay experience.
The objective is to survive 10 time-limited waves of enemy attacks, return home, and then continue to the next chapter. During each wave, we control our pickle character with a large joystick while it auto-shoots at any enemies in range.
After every wave, we get to first pick one of three random stat-boosts if we leveled up during the wave, and then spend the pickles we’ve collected on buying weapons and items. Just like in Brotato, we can equip six weapons at a time, which quickly makes the gameplay chaotically fun.
If we get two of the same item, we can even merge them to increase the rarity, which makes it a lot stronger. I found the weapons to be decently diverse, and it’s entertaining to experiment with everything from snipers to magic wands, anvils, turrets, and drones.
After defeating the boss in wave 10, we receive gold and permanent items. In-between runs, we equip and upgrade these items to grow stronger, and buy stat boosts. All this permanent progression makes the game feel slightly more rewarding than Brotato.
Playing normal runs requires energy that we eventually run out of. Thankfully, the game also features a daily mission game mode, a competitive endless mode, and several challenge modes that are almost entire games on their own. Most of these don’t require any energy.
The art and animations are silly but neat, and I found it particularly nice that we can see where an enemy is about to spawn.
Pickle Pete monetizes via incentivized ads to revive, receive extra gold, or refresh the shop. There are also iAPs for items and a paid battle pass, but none of this is needed to progress at a decent pace.

Nanuleu (Game Size: 59 MB] ($2.99)

Genre: Tower Defense / Strategy / Indie - Offline
Orientation: Portrait
Required Attention: Full
tl;dr review by AlexSem:
Nanuleu is an area control real-time strategy game where we expand our territory, accumulate resources, and place defenses to repel the enemy onslaught until we can launch an effective counterattack.
We play on a randomly generated square grid where certain tiles contain valuable resource deposits such as minerals and water. Starting at the center, we spend resources to build various nodes adjacent to the tiles we already occupy.
Cheap root nodes serve as roads that expand our network, while more expensive extractors can only be placed on deposit tiles to increase resource production. Our objective is to reach several distant tiles on the map and build special nodes there.
As time goes by, enemy camps start to appear in the corners of the map. These spawn troops that attack our nodes, and to oppose them, we must place defense towers that fire projectiles. Once we occupy all the special tiles, we get access to our own troop factories so we can produce units that destroy the enemy spawns. Getting rid of all the enemies is the ultimate goal of the game.
The strategy revolves around carefully balancing our expansion and resource production while racing against the ever-growing enemy forces. If we fail to occupy the deposits, we may not be able to produce enough towers in time, but a larger territory is also harder to control and requires more resources for towers. I found this balancing to be quite challenging and unforgiving, which highly contrasts the game's seemingly casual art style.
Nanuleu is a $2.99 premium game without ads or iAPs. Despite being rather simple and repetitive, it still provides an entertaining and unique experience for fans of real-time strategy and tower defense games.

2023.06.02 10:18 mashmellowdude Smashed display: Transfer backup from Pixel 4a to Pixel 6a

In my Google Drive I have a recent backup of my now smashed up Pixel 4a.File is named "Google Pixel 4a (5G) backup". I see the same backup in Google One.
The phone can turn on, but the screen is badly damaged and the top 1/3 is non-responsive to touch.
So when I get a new Pixel 6a tomorrow, that backup will be applied when I login to the new device with my Google account?
Any other options to consider? Cable to cable is no good if the other phone's display is wasted right?
