It's been awhile since I updated my list of what's on my beloved PalmOne Tungsten|C, so I figured I'd update my list. Admittedly, it's still mostly games, though the non-game applications I have I use daily, so I figure they're not a total waste. :)
Arvale: Humorous role-playing game from PDAMill. I helped beta-test this one, and believe me, the game is AWESOME. I especially love the conversations you can have with fireplaces and wheelbarrows. This game is available for the Palm OS and Pocket PC.
Gamebox Asia: A PDAMill Mahjong game. Simple but elegant graphics, three tile choices, and a variety of game types to keep me entertained. Available for Palm OS and PPC.
AvantGo: A web browser and news aggregator. I must confess I don't use the web browser, mostly because I have all but stopped using the Wi-Fi on my T|C. Free membership allows you 2 MB of subscriptions (you can upgrade your account for a nominal fee and get 8 MB of subscriptions, but I haven't had a need to do this yet). When you sync your device, your subscriptions are updated so you can stay on top of the news. My subscriptions include: AccuWeather.com, CNET News, Football365, Guardian Unlimited Football, Palm InfoCenter, Rolling Stone, Salon.com, US Soccer Players, washingtonpost.com and Wired News. It's great, I can sync my Palm and then catch up on all my soccer, entertainment, and technology news while I'm out and about (and waiting for things!). AvantGo is for Palm or PPC, FREE!
Bejeweled2: I'm a Bejeweled addict. :) This is a "new and updated version" of an old game that most people have played involving gem-swapping. This version includes a multi-level "endless" play, arcade play against the clock, and play until no more swaps are available. Astraware ported this game, and it's available for the Palm and PPC.
Bike or Die!: An amusing and addictive game of guiding a bicycle through a variety of courses and challenges. What's really nice about this game is that it works on almost every model of Palm, regardless of OS. While most games require the new OS 5, this one doesn't. And it's simple yet addictive. Palm OS only.
Super Bounce Out: Another Astraware game. This game is similar to Bejeweled in that it involves swapping items to make groups of 3. However, this one adds a twist of having balls that can't be switched...trust me, it makes for a challenging time, especially when you're fighting the clock. Available for Palm OS and PPC.
Breakout: Kickoo's version of the classic arcade game where you break bricks by bouncing a ball around the screen. Sort of Pong-esque but Kickoo's version is colorful and challenging, with ball and paddle "upgrades." I've spent more time advancing through this game than I should admit. Palm OS only.
ChessTiger: Still the best chess game out there. If you're a n00b trying to learn the game and improve your skills, or if you're a seasoned pro, this game is right for you. Palm OS.
NeatFreak Pack: Bundle of software from NorthGlide that includes an Uninstall Manager and Cleanup utility for your Palm Pilot. Helps identify and remove orphaned files and properly remove applications from your device. My favorite utility of its kind. Palm OS only.
Crosswords: Scrabble clone for your PDA. With varying levels of difficulty for the computer to play with, it'll help you beat your family at this all-time great game. It certainly helped me get better at it for playing against MY family. :D Available for Palm OS or PPC. Oh yes, did I mention it's FREE!
Documents 2 Go: Program that allows you to create, edit, and view documents for/by Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Create a document on your computer, sync it to your PDA and then you can read or edit it on your device. Changes made on either computer or PDA will be saved to the PDA/computer during the sync process. A great little tool for getting work done away from the desktop PC. Better yet, it's often bundled with the software that comes with your device, so you only have to pay to upgrade it. :) For Palm OS.
Earth Defender: A Space Invaders clone. Pretty graphics and simple control make it a winner. What more can be said about such a classic game? Palm OS only.
Easy Calc: Multi-function calculator for your Palm device. It can do basic, scientific, statistical, and graphing functions. As one with a BS in Physics and MS in Aerospace Engineering, I found this tool quite useful...and much easier to carry around than my HP-48G calculator. :) For Palm OS, and it's FREE!
eReader: Software to read electronic books on your PDA. Just install the reader, get an ebook, and you're ready to go. The only downside to ebooks that I've found is that you really can't take them into the bathtub to read. ;) Otherwise, it certainly is easier to carry around my Palm Pilot than a 1,000+ page Neal Stephenson hardback. There is a "Pro" version which isn't too expensive, but the standard version is FREE, available for Palm and PPC.
Gamebox Gems: Another PDAMill game, this one includes 8 different puzzle type games for your enjoyment and amusement. I love the folks at PDAMill, and their products are always great. This one is no exception with sharp graphics and great sounds. Available for Palm and PPC.
Insaniquarium: Astraware port of the popular game you can play on Yahoo! Games or PopCap. Feed your fish, collect the gold, and don't let the aliens attack! :) A cute way to kill some time, available for Palm and PPC.
Legacy: Admittedly I haven't played this one in awhile, but it's another great role playing game. I spent hours playing it in many variations (first I went through just to beat it, then I went through to beat it without using the paralyze or lightning bolt spells, then I went through it with a reduced party...you get the idea, I played it every which way!). A lot of challenges and puzzles and some great story line. I also have al the expansions for the game. Available for Palm OS, PPC, Windows, and I think SmartPhones.
MicroFluxx: If you've ever played the game Fluxx by Looney Labs, this game will be familiar to you! It's a Palm port of the card game where the rules and goals of the game change with every card turned over. :) If you like Fluxx, you'll probably enjoy MicroFluxx. For Palm OS, but it's FREE!
MONSTA: A creative turn-based strategy game from iNDUSTRY Entertainment, this game involves you controlling Joe, out to fight the evil aliens and complete each level. Challenging and amusing (especially the things that Joe says), it'll keep you entertained for a long while. Also by iNDUSTRY is Jack (or 100 ways to barbeque), a side-scrolling platform-style game that requires you to fight some bad guys and solve various puzzles to get through each level. Both are entertaining games, available for Palm OS.
Pocket MiniGolf and PocketMiniGolf eXtra: Miniature golf for your PDA! Choose from different characters to play as (each with their own skills) and a couple of game levels combined with 18 holes in each game (PMGX has much more challenging holes than PMG) make this one easy to pick up but difficult to master. Available for Palm OS and PPC.
QuizWiz: Flashcard generator for your Palm by No Sleep Software. You can make your own flash cards of various types. Very useful when you have classes that are memory-intensive. For Palm OS, FREE!
Snails: PDAMill's version of the Worms games, it's got great graphics, humorous lines, and a lot of challenge packed into it. Try to launch various weapons at the opponent snails before they do the same to you in this turn-based strategy game. It's up to PDAMill's standard of attractiveness and addictivity, and I highly recommend it. Available for Palm and PPC.
Gamebox Solitaire and Gamebox Solitaire II: PDAMill ports of solitaire games. These include crisp card graphics, nice background music, and a great variety of games to keep you occupied...and in case you get stuck, the versions also include a "hint" feature. :) (Gosh, I'm beginning to feel like a spokeswoman for PDAMill, I love them so much!) Available for both Palm OS and PPC.
Tots N Togs: A clothing store simulator to keep you busy. Cute animations and challenging game play with different styles of play available. Can YOU keep your clothing store afloat? Available for both Palm OS and PPC (note this game is also available at the Astraware site).
Toxic Balls: An arcade style game where you need to break up all the toxic balls without getting hit. 32 levels with increasing difficulty based on layout and number of balls plus great background music mean you'll be amused for hours. I've beaten each level in this game and I'm still going back to play, mostly because each time you play, the game can be different based on how you attack the level. :) For Palm OS.
ZLauncher: Most Palm Power Users' choice for a launcher that's much nicer than the standard Palm launcher, this one has plenty of themes available (some are free, some cost a couple of bucks) and a new feature of using plug-ins to enhance the launcher further. It's very customizable and makes the device that much more attractive. Currently I'm using the Crystal Theme available from PDA Shine. Obviously, this is a Palm OS tool.
