SPB Games Online Review

:[ October 19th, 2008

I just got done playing SPB Games Online, and wanted to share my thoughts.

The first thing I wanted to mention was the fact that this game managed to accomplish something no other Windows Mobile game I’ve tried has: it actually has a lot of people online!

This is pretty cool because no other Pocket PC game I’ve tried ever had enough people online to make it worth playing. The tradeoff was that those other games were more interesting to me, because I like stuff that’s a little different.

Because the amount of people who know how to play checkers, etc is so large is the reason that this game will succeed, but I’m not sure if it’s for me. It’s basically a Pocket PC version of the “Internet Checkers” or “Internet Reversi” you’d see on a Windows XP machine.

FPSBuddy – Halo 3 Respawn Timer for Pocket PC / Windows Mobile

:[ July 2nd, 2008

For those of you who like to play Halo 3, I found a nice tool called FPSBuddy which works with your Pocket PC or Windows Mobile device to help you gain an advantage over your Halo 3 opponents.

The tool is a Halo 3 Respawn Timer, and it lets you know when a weapon, item, powerup, or vehicle will be respawning. I love that they made this work with my beloved Pocket PC Phone. It’s basically a web app that you access from your device’s Pocket Internet Explorer (just like any other website). You’ll need Flash Player 7 for Pocket PC in order for it to work.

Once you access the Halo 3 Spawn Timer from your device, you’ll see a drop-down list with various gametypes and maps. Just select your map and gametype from the dropdown and click submit and you’ll be presented with a screen full of icons that you can click with your finger to start and stop the timer. FPSBuddy has a free version which lets you use the tool as much as you want in Free For All (lone wolves) gametypes. The pay version is extremely affordable at only $3.99/month via a convenient and safe Paypal subscription.

Bananas for Pocket PC review

:[ February 13th, 2008

Bananas Pocket PC Review

Action games have long been a problem on the pocket pc because of control issues.Enter Bananas, a new game by Lygue games which does what no previous Windows Mobile action game has accomplished… concont a truly intuitive control scheme.

bananas pocket pc

The game is basically a platform game which features a cute monkey named filbert. You control filbert with your thumb or stylus, and simply click where you want filbert to go. The point of the game is to pick up bananas, and various other items while avoiding venus fly traps and bad apples. You must also keep filbert moving downard as each level progresses.

The beauty of the game lies in its control scheme. Instead of fumbling with your device’s thumbstick. you simply tap where you want filbert to go. If you want filbert to jump across a chasm you just click the other side of the jump and he does a nicely animated jump right across.

Boss battles are fun, you basically thow bananas repeatedly at creatures at the top of the screen.

The actual game dynamic is about 60% timing, and 40% dodging baddies. And for the most part, it’s pretty fun.

But Bananas is not all fun and games, unfortunately. Firstly, the game is BIG in terms of storage space. Maybe I’ve been out of the scene too long, but 6mb seems a bit too heavy for this game. There is also a control issue where the four “totems” (powerup activator buttons) on the top left would interfere with my control on more than one occasion. These might do better on another section of the screen.

On another note, I let my 3 year old nephew try it, and it was obviously way too hard on even the easiest setting. So, if you’re looking for a game for your 3-4 year old this probably isn’t it.

All in all, Bananas is definitely one of the best action/puzzlers for the Pocket PC platform available, and I definitely recommend picking it up. For the price (currently $3.95), you can’t beat Bananas!

CALL OF DUTY 2 on Windows Mobile!

:[ August 17th, 2007

Wow… ok, before I start, let me just say that I never thought in my wildest dreams that Aspyr Media could ever pull of Call of Duty 2 on the small screen. Let the record state, I have just been proven wrong.

call of duty 2 ppc

This game ROCKS! The touch screen controls are extremely accurate and easy to use. It works with both the 2700g chip and the GoForce5500 graphics processors, so there’s a good chance this will run on your device. Even if you don’t have a graphics processor, you can still run this because it has software accelerated 3D graphics. COD2 has three (count ‘em, one two three) campaigns totaling 12 huge missions. There’s a great selection of weapons including American, Russian, British and German.
The best part about this game is that there will be wi-fi multiplayer coming out soon so you can test your skills online, any place, any time… Personally, I’m trying to beat the single player missions first so that when the multiplayer section comes out, I’m good enough to hold a candle to all the COD nerds out there.

I have three words to describe Call of Duty 2 for Pocket PC: Buy. This. Game.

that is all. Why haven’t you bought it yet?

Buy it here for $29.95

Just messing around with VITO remote

:[ August 13th, 2007

Hey everyone I just downloaded the trial for VITO remote, and so far so good. Honestly, VITO is the first remote software for pocket pc that has actually worked for me. None of the others would ever seem to work for me, but I’ve decided to try one more time and I guess I got lucky with VITO.

VITO is cool because it works with both VGA and QVGA screens, so both me and my wife (with different ppcs) can battle it out from the sofa for control of the TV.  Even though my home electronics are mostly common-name (Sony, etc) VITO also has a huge list of compatible devices, which should be good for those of you who have some more obscure brands.

Really, the feature that has me intrigued to buy this is the CCF file support to use the original remote’s interface…
At this point, I’m 90% sure I’m going to buy this one. 

It’s available here for $15.95… go ahead and try the demo, I think it will work for you

Pocket Goo 2: The best fun you can get for $10. Period.

:[ August 5th, 2007

I just tried Pocket Goo 2 for the first time, and I must say that I am very impressed. This pocket pc application is hilariously funny!

Basically, Pocket Goo 2 is a program for your pocket pc which allows you to morph two pictures together. This produces hilarious results, for example, when I morphed myself and my new wife together to try to get an idea of what our kids might look like, instead we got what looked like a mongoloid with a brain implant.

Aside from the fun of morphing your family and friends pictures, the real value of this application is because it is so full featured. There are hue/saturation controls, brightness, contrast, etc. This should please even the most jaded of photoshop experts.


Another big feature of this program is that it loads all file types, from jpg to gif to bmp. This program can really do it all!

If you are looking for a photoshop alternative for pocket pc, this program is for you.

clickclickPOP! rates this application 4.5/5

Got the urge to fish but can’t make it out to the lake? Play Pocket Bass Angler 2007

:[ August 5th, 2007

Do what I have been doing lately: Play Pocket Bass Angler 2007

Pocket Bass Angler is a realistic fishing simulation which lets you try your luck at catching Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Muskie,Walleye and more from your Pocket PC or Windows Mobile Device. I played this game on my XV6700 and it worked great!

Catching a fish in this game is very exciting because of the decisions you have to make to actually make the catch. From bait selection, line stress, and timing elements, this game is as realistic as you can get. The animations and graphics are top-notch, too!

The thing I like most about this game is that sound. The sound effects really bring you to your favorite fishing spot and makes you feel like you are really there.

I recommend this game for any professional or wannabe angler out there with a windows mobile or Pocket PC device.

Pros:

  • Provides laptop class typing for mobile devices;
  • Small and light for a full-sized keyboard;
  • Very power efficient.
  • Cons:

  • Initial setup was very difficult because of issues with supplied drivers;
  • Occasional flex and tilting when typing on either end of keyboard.
  • If you’re not convinced that input methods for mobile devices are a big deal, consider the controversy over the on-screen keyboard on the iPhone.

    Toshiba Portege G900 Review

    :[ July 25th, 2007

    “In conclusion, the G900 is a great PDA; it runs windows Mobile 6 professional which is good for early adopters however it does feel a little rushed to market and Toshiba should really have ironed out the obvious problems before releasing it. As a PDA it’s a device that I am sure will find favour in some areas. However, considering its position a flagship re-entry into the marketplace, Toshiba really should have tried a little harder.”

    As promised, Tracy and Matt have a review of the Portege G900. Alasdair covers the ins and outs of the G900, but the review unit got bit by the standby bug – you can tell he’s a little unhappy. Good points – the screen is superb, USB host, and the biometric scanner. Bad points – the screen/standby bug! Read the review for more details.
