Welcome to 'Paul's App of the Day', where I pick one of my favourite apps as featured app of the day! It's the weekend, which means we feature fun apps! Today's app is...
Mario Live Wallpaper
What they say
What we say
Watch Mario play randomly generated levels on your home screen!
Retro heaven! If, like me, you have a soft spot for the old gaming classics (Mario, Sonic et al) then you'll love this wallpaper! Mario speeds through randomly generated levels in the background, dodging baddies on a variety of backdrops. I've cranked the FPS up to the max and it runs smooth as silk and looks brilliant on my Galaxy S. Definitely one of my favourite live wallpapers!
Strangely this application doesn't appear at AppBrain, nor does it appear in the Market on my Galaxy S! It does on my Nexus One though.
You can view more details at Cyrket or download the APK from this link.
To use, install 'Barcode Scanner' from the Android Market.
FREE! We like that!

None! Beware the 'paid' 'Mario 64' Live Wallpaper on the Market. It's simply a rubbish video looping in the background
Suggested improvements for the next version
I would like to see Mario 'play' the levels more than just speeding through them (collecting coins, intelligently killing baddies). You know what would be awesome too? A Sonic the Hedgehog live wallpaper.
