Maxelus, a "Top Developer" in the Android Market, is well known for creating stunning (if not slightly trippy) live wallpapers - particularly the "Galaxy" series of LWPs that bring gorgeous, fictional outer space scenes to your Android phone or tablet.

Ostensibly looking to up the ante a bit, Maxelus recently introduced Alien Skins, a live wallpaper that offers over 1900 theme combinations, allowing one to mix and match skins and color schemes to their heart's content.

Unlike the "Galaxy" quartet, Alien Skins' full version comes at a price, ringing in at $1.99. Still, the sheer volume of options available to users may justify this price. After all, Alien Skins essentially includes 50 wallpapers in one download, each customizable with 38 color schemes.

If you're not ready to commit to spending $1.99 on a live wallpaper just yet, Alien Skins also has a free alternative, which cuts down the selection to 2 wallpapers and 10 color schemes. Either way, with all its color options, beautiful patterns, and smooth animation, Alien Skins is sure to have something that will appeal to you and spice up your Android home screens as well.

      I do, and their widgets are awesome - the official Market doesn't have them at all.
