So we think we’ve just come across the coolest and the most awesome Cydia tweak ever. I know that’s a bold statement, but this tweak is really the first of its kind.
SpringBoard Invaders takes the classic Space Invaders video game or there are other names to it for example arkanoid, jet ball and sticks it right on your iPhone or iPad’s SpringBoard.
All you’ll need to do is scroll past the last page of your app icons, and there you are playing the awesome game right onto your springboard.
The really cool part is that this tweak doesn’t slowdown the phone. When you think about an actual game being placed on your SpringBoard, you probably assume it’s going to slow your device down and run droopy, making the experience not as enjoyable as it sounds.
But that’s simply not the case with SB Invaders. It runs smoothly, and transitioning in and out of the game/your normal SpringBoard is as smooth as silk.
You shoot your random larger app icons with little mini, random app icons. To move your shooter, you simply tilt the device to the left or the right. IPad users probably will enjoy this a little bit more than iPhone users, simply because the app icons are larger (especially the mini ones) and the large screen is an added advantage. One thing to keep in mind if you decide to rock this game on your iPad is that you’ll need to be in Portrait mode to properly play the game, and since you’ll be tilting, you should probably lock the orientation. Why wait?? Go get the game guys! J
