Solar System HD Deluxe Live Android Wallpaper Review!

Audio Version:

If you ever wanted a cool Android wallpaper and like space this app is pretty cool! It’s called Solar System HD Deluxe.

It will make you be able to have planets in the background as a wallpaper or on your lock screen. You can select between a wide range of Settings. Planet, Star System, Starfield & Stardust.

You can also select if you want an Asteroid field. But this will require a more high end device like Samsung Galaxy S8 or OnePlus 5. Both having the Snapdragon 835 processor. Also if a planet has satellites you can select to enable them too. You also have an option to glow up the planet. And then you have an option for big stars in the background.

My first impressions using this one on my Samsung Galaxy S8 was amazing. Super good performance and smooth. You might have a different experience on a slower device. You need a gyroscope on your phone to be able to use this app if you want it to move around in hand.

In the planet scene you have these different options to choose between. None, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. There are also some bonus options available: Twin Stars, Nox, Orpheus and Magma. Of course earth is my favorite! Seeing our little planet from a space view with the globe spinning around is powerful! My favorite thing with this app is the HD super high quality textures that is being used. And when you pick up the phone it is using the gyroscope to move the scene around!

The Sun is a good scene selection when you wanna have something super bright as a wallpaper. It really does shine up magically and it looks like the sun texture is lovely made so it looks like the sun really is burning!

Venus looks a bit yellow and brown. More easier to the eye than the sun.

Mars looks very red and black. You can also see a planet a bit in the background with the Mars scene.

Saturn looks amazingly yellow and you can see it with it’s beautiful rings. It kinda reminds me about a discoball!

Uranus looks wonderfully blue. It also has it’s blue and light white rings. This one you have to tilt your phone to the side to see because the rings are in a horizontal position!

Neptune’s scene has even more amazing blue color reminds me about Mars but a blue one. Very amazing shades of blue in this one!

Pluto looks very grey.

The bonus Twin Stars features two glowing planets. One the sun and another further away shining white and blue! Nox bonus has a very strange set of colors. I leave it up to you to have a look at yourself!

Orpheus looks very futuristic like. Kind of sounds like an ancient greek planet name and it looks like a new Utopian earth planet!

Maybe Elon Musk should try to find a magical planet like this!

And then we come to the most amazing bonus of all! The Magma planet! Wow wow wow! This one reminds me about planet Mars but this one is way more darker and badass in the red color! Looks like a dark side planet! I love it so much with it’s shade of bright lava red and darker black colors.

So that was a quick review of the planet scene system you can select between.

Next you can select between Star System’s! These you can pick between: None, Crimson Nebula, Azure Galaxy, Golden Galaxy and Milky Way Galaxy.

Crimson Nebula has a futuristic look to it, different shades of blue and dark pink in the background.

Azure Galaxy is a bit similar but with more light stars in the background giving a bright shade of white.

Golden Galaxy is beautiful with lots of bright shining gold colors! It looks like paradise! A very beautiful texture here.

Milky way has tons of circles spinning with stars on them. Very beautiful colors of blue and bright white in the middle. And you also see super many stars all over the place!

I have been mentioning that the Star System was very blue at the top a lot… But you can tweak this! With the Starfield setting you can select between these colors. The blue is the default. The other ones are: Simple, Orange, Green and Dark! I do get a feeling that many of you will switch to dark!

You can also go in and tweak Stardust if you want it calm or boiling. To be honest at a quick glance I didn’t notice a major difference.


You also have some other options. You can select between various focus distances. I didn’t notice a big difference for me. But my favorite tweak here is you can select distance! The default is close to planet. You can change it too Very far or Far. So you can see the full planet in it’s glory! You can also select how much you want the camera to move while you move around the phone. And select movement radius. Again I really enjoy how it has so many options for tweaking the experience.

You also have the options to save battery by limiting the FPS. These are the options: 5, 15, 30, 60 FPS and MAX. Max is for the users who charge their phone 15x a day! You can also select low resolution textures to save even more battery if you feel it’s draining your battery life. But it probably doesn’t drain it as much as the Facebook mobile app!

You can also disable the gyroscope if you want the background to be more fixed but still work in a live wallpaper way.

Overall I am very glad to see the quality of this app. And I highly recommend it if you like space. And wanna see planets on your home screen’s or lock screen. I bet your friends will be impressed. If you have a high end phone that can handle the app.

Some future ideas for the app maybe would be more close up on planet earth! So you can see custom countries more close up! Or amazing views closeup that exists on planet earth. I look forward to all future developments. Here is a link to the app one more time!

Thanks for reading!

Flippy Knife – Game Review!

Today I want to write a review on a new game called Flippy Knife. It had a high rating in the play store 4.8 so I decided to check it out.

Download Link:

iOS Version:

Android Version:

First it had original retro graphics. Sort of reminded me about the Super Mario games. What you do in the game is you throw a knife around. And try to throw it at coins. Or at targets. You throw the knife by sliding your finger across the screen towards the target which is coins. When you throw the knife it starts to spin around. And here is the tricky part! You need to throw the knife so the sharp side ends up in the wall so the knife sticks to the wall! If you don’t it’s game over!

The game has 4 exciting modes. They are called Climb, TargetCombo Arcade.

Climb: You chase coins up horizontally by throwing up the knife against coins and hit the other wall. 

Target: You aim at a target kinda like a professional bow shooter and try to hit it. For sure one of the hardest!

Combo: You sit on a tree stump and throw the knife up and try to end up again at the tree stump. And try to get as long combo as possible with knife hitting sharp side on tree stump.

Arcade: You are running vertically forward with throwing the knife on various size platforms. Reminds about a Super Mario game.

Again with all throwing modes the sharp side of knife needs to end up first on target/wall. Or else you will fail and it will be game over.

You do have 20 different badges you can unlock. The first one I unlocked was *NICE 10 THROWS. You also have a ton of various knifes you can buy with in-app purchase. One knife is called FANTASY and cost €2.59 euro, some knife’s you can watch ads for to unlock.

The funny part with unlocking a knife by watching an ad is you need to watch 30 second ad 100 times to unlock it! That’s 50 minutes of ads for one unlock of a knife! That’s hilarious haha.

The knife’s has different weights 3 different levels and also per flip how many coins they can capture from 1-3 (At least that’s how I understood it but might be wrong!).

The music in-game is relaxing and they have 4 leaderboards for the different modes. You can also take a screenshot inside the app and if you share the photo you get rewarded 50 coins! You have a best score section up in the left top corner. The thing that makes this game worth it and addictive is how easy it is to start a new game and how fun it is to try to do a perfect throw.

Reminds about Flappy Birds and these games where you flick a ball to try to get it inside a goal behind a goalkeeper. The game doesn’t feel to spammy with ads that shows up from time to time. If you wanna completely disable in ads inside the game then you can disable ads from a €1.29 euro purchase. And then you also get a selection of small knife’s. The game also offer you a bunch of free coins just by going to their Instagram, Facebook and Play Store page. Which I liked 3 badges unlocked fast!

Something I think many games suffer from these days is too many long tutorials how to play a new game. This game will let you instantly get into the game without any annoying popups. Something that is unclear to me in the game is if the knife’s differ in more ways than just the various weight. Because they come in various sizes and shapes. I wonder if that also has an effect on the physics. The game could be a bit more clear in this area. And also what coins per flip actually means.

And Google seem to have some problems with their Play Store leaderboards. With some users having unnatural high score probably cheating in some way. Which makes leaderboards boring. Then it doesn’t serve it’s purpose. This game reminds me about AdVenture Capitalist. Not too spammy, has nice graphics and music. And is fun to play. I can’t wait to see what more features they will implement in the future. There is a lot of potential here.

Something that can be frustrating with this game and make you rage quit is it is a little bit too hard. Kinda feels like a NES Mario game! I wish they had a newbie training session that tries to teach you to become more skilled. Because it’s a little bit too hard and it can sometimes un-motivate you to play.

I can see great potential in the future to maybe implement an online multiplayer mode. Where you can online compete against other knife throwers. This game also reminds me about Fruit Ninja. Which is a fruit slicer game. If you want an amazing experience then buy HTC Vive and purchase Fruit Ninja and play… It’s an amazing experience!

This game also has 14 in-built languages which is good. More than the basic 4-5 many games only have. Of course this game also has a bit Flappy Bird feel. In terms of it’s graphics. But I think they pulled off a real good job at trying to make something creative.

The game has nice 3D from the side style graphics. With nice in-game shadows on the knife. These shadows also move when you throw up the knife!

My favorite modes are the Combo and Arcade modes. The Target and Climb is just too hard. I find the heavier knife’s way easier to handle. At least for the Climb. The tiny Swiss knife that you can get for 300 coins is super cute but wow is it hard to make a perfect throw! On the other hand you feel more pro handling a tiny knife. The KUKRI knife for 300 coins feels so much easier to handle than the tiny Swiss knife. It has 2 out of 3 in weight. And looks amazing!

The popup ads in-game when you play free ad mode last for 5 seconds then you can skip. Which is not too bad. They don’t always show up also. In the end I highly recommend you to check out Flippy Knife!
