That game just looks like a knock-off of atom-smash, there's nothing 3D about it. Lame.

I am a reviewer who has just gotten the game and tried it out on my Visor Prism... it displays in 16-bit colour and there really are much better animations and graphics than Atom Smash.... Very intuitive design of the game, superb backgrounds, and creative power-ups...

It is in no way lame, my friend, don't judge it just by looking at screen shots... I had your views too until I started playing it... The graphics ROCK! In the "trailer" displayed when the game starts up, you would even think that there was a modest amount of video RAM helping to boost the wonderful graphics.... Wait for June 5th and then see whether you choke on your own words..

BugMe! V1.3.4 beta

The latest version of BugMe! does not seem to add any new capabilties in e-mailing PalmPix photos. The version I played with
a few months ago allowed me to screen capture thumbnail previews of photos in PalmPix, annotate, and then e-mail. The
thumbnail preview is such poor quality that this feature seemed unpratical. The latest BugMe! seems to do the exact same thing,
screen capture the thumbnail from PalmPix, only the process is slightly easier. The image quality is still poor. The service provided
by skipwire.com truely allows you to e-mail PalmPix images in .jpg, .bmp, and other formats. Great image quality, but it does take
lots of cell phone minutes to upload the entire PalmPix image file to skipwire.
