    So, I've whipped up a Live Wallpaper - it's one of my 'Hello World' algorithms I always implement when learning a new toolset or language. It randomly generates mazes as you watch - see the .gifs below

    (note: these playback OK in Firefox, but IE seems to choke, and it's unlikely to look right on a mobile device)

    I'm looking for feedback - what additional settings would you like to tweak. To incentivise things a little, I'll give out a free copy to people who make a suggestion I incorporate!

    Anyway, without further ado, links!

    It is a very loud background, but I tend to run it a lot slower. I've got it doing something like 50 steps per frame in the gifs, whereas I run it as 1-5 steps per frame on my phone. Then it turns into a gently questing maze worm.
