I'll admit it, I'm anal about CPU and RAM usage. I'm the kind of person that goes into MSConfig every 6 months to scrape useless startup processes like barnacles off the hull of a ship to keep boot times down and squeeze every last possible increment of free RAM and CPU that I can (insert "Then you should use Linux" joke here) out of my system.

Claiming to have brought the first action/real-time strategy game to Android, the developers at Maya released Legendary Heroes to the Market yesterday.

He provides you a nice tutorial and even gives Fred the chance to escape.
