Resurrecting RETRY with a bit of reverse engineering
RETRY is the best mobile game ever, but it was apparently too difficult for the masses and was discontinued in 2017. For a while it just crashed at startup.
This repo contains scripts to unpack, modify and repack RETRY 1.5.0 APK with modifications to make it more playable.
Please support Rovio by buying content for their other games, the Retry Soundtrack and such.
- Change package and name to allow installation alongside the original
- Make the app debuggable
- Disable Google Play Games integration (because it crashes)
- Allow opening all levels directly (because you had them unlocked back in the day)
- Don't use up challenge retries and coins (because you can't buy coins anymore and don't wanna grind the early levels for coins)
Save the original APK as
make. Connect phone via USB and run
- Android SDK
- ilasm+ildasm from CoreCLR (no, Mono versions don't work)
- A minimal binary patch to avoid a complicated toolchain
