Alchemy~ Genetics

Alchemy Genetics Android game

I just love this app and definitely, so would you. In this app you can create different species from combining different animals. Believe me you get some pretty bizarre results. In this version 1.0.10, hundred new animals have been added. In this game your elements are animals and “genes”, and new breeds are created by adding a trait of one creature to another, for example:
Ant + Rat [Tailed] = Scorpion (an arthropod with a tail)
Anchovy + Chicken [Domestic] = Golden Carp (a domestic fish)
Golden Carp + Scorpion = ???

I will like to add a word of caution though, this apps is highly addictive so please beware.

This app will help you to move application to the SD card and is only for Android 1.6 users with root privileges. The aim is to link applications to SD cards second partition. It’s same as apps2sdscrips but differ in two ways. Link2SD works by mounting the second partition of your SD card and makes OS mount it at boot time. It’s a no-joke stuff and we would caution you before doing such stuff. And don’t forget your phone needs to be rooted, so you’re already off the warranty, you know!
