Portal 2 Fans, Wheatley Has Arrived for Android in the Form of a Live Wallpaper

Portal 2 is a very popular game among the geek/nerd/tech community because it actually makes us use our brains. You don’t just go around shooting zombies or fighting dragons, but you have to test your brain power and be a wizard at problem solving. Everyone’s favorite character, Wheatley now makes his debut on Android as an awesome live wallpaper

What makes him even more stellar on Android is that his eye follows your finger’s movements across the display and blinks when you tap on him. But alas, if only he could deliver his fantastic sense of humor as well to us in this form. The wallpaper is only a $1 and is quite worth the buck.

Play Link ($1)


Cheers Dale!

  • mylo9000

    wow… one buck you say… i’ll pass.

  • Cool live wallpaper, surely buying his.

  • tylerwatt12

    reminds me of XEYES

  • fasterthantheworld

    Thats cool but no buy for me. Not supporting copyright infringement. Come up with your own ideas.

  • This will be taken down in a few days, huge copyright violation.

  • Collin

    I’m not so sure about Wheatley being everyone’s favorite character… I’m kind of a fan of the Space Orb, myself…


  • ……….

  • TheOiulkj

    I shall download it promptly after cleaning the pants I just came in.

  • Franz

    What theme/launcher are you using on that ROM? I like the icons.

    • Icons are from Lustre. bit.ly/playlustre

  • Butters619

    Nvm just changed up the icons. I like

  • James Murphy

    Tim, what fine icons you have!

    • Oh, why thank you. All credit goes to @koveleski:disqus for his fine Lustre icon pack.

    • Don’t let Tim horde them, check them out for yourself. bit.ly/playlustre

      • James Murphy

        Koveleski, I remember you from DarkEdge. Great job on these icons.

  • Keii Graham

    Not as impressed as I thought I was going to be. I guess a lot of the charm is lost when it’s silent. Oh well.
    It’s still not bad by any means.

    • DigitalDK

      If he through around some wily comments I would be a lot happier, providing they could be turned off.

      That being said, why has someone not created a siri like app using Wheatley as the assistant? Nothing would be more enjoyable than that snarky bastard telling me to piss off!

  • Michael Schnider

    Best live wallpaper since the OG Droid Eye!!

  • Thanks Tato!

  • DigitalDK

    HA HA! I finally made a contribution to Droid-Life! GO ME!

    • DigitalDK

      So I get down voted for alerting Droid-Life of the Wheatley LWP that you all seem to love? Interesting concept.

      • PC_Tool

        I just lost 5 minutes of my life playing with that damned wallpaper. That’s five minutes I will never get back…

        …and I am sure after typing this more will be lost.

        Consider down-votes as getting off easy. 😉

        • PC_Tool

          Rage has nothing to do with it. We just hate you because you found it first. 😉

          • DigitalDK

            Oh, so it’s a jealousy thing? Either way I’m getting attention so slather on the hate you big oaf’s!

    • Collin

      Enjoy your little bit of fame. =] It probably won’t last long… Mine sure didn’t… >_<

  • Shadowcell

    Damn, I wish he could talk too. I would literally pay more for this wallpaper if he did.

  • Mordecaidrake

    Purchased, this is awesome.

  • nightscout13

    Nice…..Portal Gun included right?

    • Think Geek had some for a while I know my friend bought one.

  • bn125467

    Cool concept. Not to be a downer but kind of ripping and making a buck off of Valve here no? Unless I’m missing something.

    • Yeah, they actually cannot sell this and can get into some serious trouble with Valve do to copyright laws. However they CAN put it on the market for free and not face legal issues if I’m not mistaken. If they want to sell this the developer really needs to contact Valve to get permission.

      • Aardvark99

        I’m sure all the characters are copyrighted by Valve and I doubt it’s 100% OK to use even if the application was free. But I’m sure Valve being Valve would have let it slide – but to charge for it – that’s BS on the author’s part. What’s next, bootleg t-shirts?

        • Yeah I wasn’t sure if they could or couldn’t. I simply put “CAN” since I’ve had people in the past think I wrote “can’t” every so often. It’s one of those fine lines though. However charging for this, is ridiculous and Google shouldn’t have let it through.

            Hey Dave, it’s creepy when I find you in places other then my FB wall / News Feed =P

      • mr_ewe

        He has this disclaimer in the market description:

        Wheatley LiveWallpaper is a completely original, unique concept from the ground up. Any similarities to any other persons or copyrighted material is purely coincidental.

        And doesn’t ever mention Portal, Portal 2, or Valve anywhere; just uses the name Wheatley. I am not a copyright lawyer, or a lawyer at all, but he is trying very hard to get around the copyright on what he essentially copied. IMO, it looks similar to Wheatley and has the same name, that’s basically the same as what shows like South Park do to put poorly drawn and impersonated celebrities on their show to drag their names through the mud while gaining profits from advertisements and also get away with it.

  • Jim Dandy

    Great find!!!

  • Jeremy Ahn

    I really love it, however it lags on my device, sadly. Had to refund it.

    • DigitalDK

      It lags a bit on my Nexus too as well as just flinching when you quick scroll through home screens, I’m hoping this will be addressed in an update.

    • GLaDOS: Hey, Moron!
      Wheatley: Oh, Hello.
      GLaDOS: All right, Paradox time.
      GLaDOS: [slowly and deliberately] This. Sentence. Is. FALSE.
      GLaDOS: [to herself] Don’t think about it, don’t think about it!
      Wheatley: Um, true. I’ll go with true. There, that was easy. To be honest, I might have heard that one before.
      GLaDOS: It’s a paradox! There IS no answer.

      That should be what plays when you unlock the phone with this wallpaper.
