Metroid Battery Widget

I'm not sure why nobody showed me this Metroid-style battery widget before, but I'm holding each and every single one of you personally responsible for this oversight.

man this brings me back to the good ol' days!

Love it!!!

Love it!!!

Ohhh man... reminds me of how i never finished Metroid Prime for Game Cube!

Get the trilogy version that's updated for Wii. All three primes are fantastic.

Controls are perfect in every way.

I hold Phil responsible for not telling us about this widget the very instant he found out about it. You've been sitting on this a while haven't you? Tell the truth now...

SpookDroid says:

Now, can someone port this as a skin for Beautiful Widgets, please? :)

fargles says:

I'll take my Zelda type heart battery widget;)

WAldenIV says:

I was scanning the comments just hoping that this would exist. Zelda >> everything else.

tjsimmons says:

I'm the developer, and that's definitely in the plan!

nicotinic says:

Thanks! Since he may not say it, thanks!

This is an inside joke, right?

movielover76 says:

That is pretty damn awesome, I don't need it, the custom rom I'm running already has a percentage, but I may install it anyway

thekvd says:

That is wicked though for Zelda fans like me there's this one too

nope, that one has too little hearts and unnecessary permissions.

The permissions allow you to turn wifi on/off with the app.

Who would put that hideous thing on their home screen? Has to be an inside joke!!

nulldog#AC says:

Glad this was posted...looks great on the Metroid Prime LWPs.
Just wondering... what happened to the Metroid Prime live wallpapers.
They disappeared from Google Play, but they are still posted on the devs website.

xeroslash says:

Possible that Google received infringement notices and had to remove them.

What is this devs website of which you speak, kind sir?

tailsthecat3 says:

Bought it cause metroid is my jam.

piizzadude says:

my bad...sorry...can I still have the Nexus?

thedan862 says:

i dont get it??

mapexonly says:

had you added me to one of your circles on google+ you would have known about this around a week ago

wikid_one says:

For those who think this is part of an inside joke, or that it just looks ugly, it is part of a larger theme that looks really awesome...

nyc_rock says:

Yeah, still dont get it. Thats fine though. Enjoy.

Cappurnikus says:

If you don't get it, you likely didn't play NES games during the 80's.

Slow_S10 says:

That is awesome! A lot of love went into that layout.

svinyard says:

Dude...we need a Metroid style ROM or Launcher. Not like pictures of metroid but the interface similar to something Samus would have strapped to her arm.

glazedfaith says:

Read the comment above yours. Question answered.

Alpha Axl says:

Disheartening to see how many people don't know what this is.

dscribe says:

Disheartening to know that someone who thinks anything less than 720p screens is unacceptable, still thinks this looks good.

icebike says:


But Even more disheartening is that anyone would take a sim card OUT of a phone this good.

movielover76 says:

For those who think this doesn't look good for some reason, you have to understand this is about retro gaming nostalgia, some people like me love it, retro gaming themed stuff is never going to look sleek and sexy, it's not supposed to :) I grew up on NES, for kids of the 80's this is awesome.

Hey Sorry Phil I saw this 2 days ago on another website. Next time I'll call you ok.

Rekabs says:

Now that I found the widget by pressing down on a blank page and set the widget in the upper left corner (moved it again by 'touch' and drag) I find that I have to swipe pages to get to it, that I can't hold down on it and move it to my homepage where the 'sample' screen is showing it. Any clues on how I get it there? Have already uninstalled it once and if it must be permanently uninstalled I have no probs doing so. Would like a response so I'll know if it's worth keeping. Not useful if I have to go find it.

Yes, that is an amazing widget. Man I love Metroid.

btw, you may have to reboot phone for it to show in widget list (on my gnex maybe all ICS).

However, after that its all perfect.

Mr_Twist says:

This looks good, remembering old days.....

Good one Phil :)

I guess this is where I say how I feel old because all the youngsters ... you should know your video game history dagnabit!

Personally, I would LOVE a Wolfenstein 3D widget - the face getting all bloodied and such as you loose power. If it were animated even better. I'd buy that for a dollar!

Phatman#AC says:

He released it late last week. He posted the idea on reddit which blew up. I shared this post from Phil on the makers Facebook wall.

ulnek says:

actually this would be better if those were heart shaped like in zelda.
