Here’s another one for my fellow Android fans: a Super Mario Live Wallpaper!
If your phone runs Android 2.1 or higher, this FREE download allows you to mimic a non-interactive game right in the background of your phone. The game isn’t pre-recorded, but it’s not playable either; it is created on-the-fly using random level generators and an artificial intelligence that controls Mario.
There are three visual themes for the levels — outside, underground and castle — all based on stuff that should be familiar to anyone who has played the old Mario games.
The only downside is that the live wallpaper would (unsurprisingly) drain your battery pretty quickly. As such, I imagine that many Android users will download it for the fun factor but not have it running at all times. If anything, it’s another way to one-up iPhone users, since the iPhone just got support for regular wallpapers through iOS 4.
