I guess they decided they actually wanted to turn a profit.


Seriously - The more the merrier.

Well I don't know their books but a lot of PPC game authors are jumping ship to Palm OS due to TapWave. Buy Xmas season 2004, we are going to see a lot this happening. In the meantime, keep on playing SpyHunter! LOL

Woohoo...new Zodiac games!

2004 is looking like a good year for 1/2VGA gaming.

Indeed, with half VGA and Be's multimedia frameworks it could be a good year for Palm gaming. At least until Microsoft starts shipping DirectX 8 with Windows Mobile... although this is vapourware until I see it (technically Palm OS 6 is vapourware at the moment, too, of course!).

Ka Pow!

Downloaded, installed the 1.4 meg (gasp!) PRC to my Treo 600. It does a soft-reset-crash each time I launch the app. I'm sticking with Bill's (ElectronHut's) Klondike, thank you very much!

That's the same sort of shock I got when I found out many 320x480 Kinoma-ed trailers are in the 30MB range!

I believe this game is for high res (320x320 pixel) devices only

Nope, the game is also optimized for viewing in landscape mode on 480x320 devices. It also takes advantage of music playing capabilities on certain devices.

Whoops, sorry...thought you implied that it doesn't run on higher-res devices. I see what you meant, ignore the above.

>> 1.4MB?!

well remember the gread debate POS uses memory more efficiently, all PPC apps are bloated?

now you know why in order to get smooth and good looking game would take gobs of RAM, or why putting 16MB for an ARM or no built in memory utility really does not help developer maximizing ARM.

Thanks, I think I'll stick with Patience(101k) for now. Gaaah.


Looks nice, but...

New Input for Palms...

McTrinsic @ 1/6/2004 5:25:05 AM #
I justz checked their website.

Especially Anthelios looks interesting to me as an old Wing Commander Freak.

However, for the Tungstens, especially the T3, I'd need (and I would buy!) a small joystick-add-on or gamepad controller or similar ... like SONY once had, just to stickit on the Universal Adapter of the Palm.

Now that would rock!

Have fun.

Get a Zodiac :).

memory requirement

Galley_SimRacer @ 1/7/2004 1:37:47 AM #
This is certainly a nice piece of software at a great price, but the 5MB of free space is much too high for most users. :-(
