If the apps in Palm’s App Catalog hasn’t caught your fancy yet, some developers are showing off the potential behind Palm’s webOS engine and the Palm Pre’s hardware with some game titles–like Quake and Doom–that make use of the hardware on the device. In the latest update of webOS 1.3.5, Palm has added some files for OpenGL ES as well as SDL (Simple Direct Layer) to take advantage of the hardware. Hopefully, we’ll start seeing some official releases soon as the Pre’s CPU and hardware is plenty capable.

Crayon Physics Deluxe is a fun game that comes packaged with the Samsung Omnia II. It’s a port of a PC game of the same name and is very similar to Numpty Physics, where the object is to get a ball to the goal (marked by a star) by using properties of physics. This is where the uniqueness of the game thrives. To help accomplish the mission, you can draw/create objects, link or erase them. Check out the video below of the PC version to get an idea of how it works. It’s more or less the same game.
Crayon Physics is fairly easy at first, but the difficulty increases [...]
After many, many months of waiting, gamers are now able to download a new version of FPSEce, a Playstation emulator for Windows Mobile. The latest version has been completely rewritten for better performance and features a new interface. It also supports a greater portion of games than its predecessor. Something that stands out is the addition of a touchscreen analog stick, which instantly improves gameplay for many games that require diagonal movements. I’m certainly digging the onscreen controls, but there also seems to be support for Bluetooth gamepads. Check out the changes [...]
Some of you may be familiar with a fun game called Totem Star Lite. It’s essentially a game in which you use your touch screen to circle and collect stars of the same shape. Combining multiple sets of stars acts as a multiplier. Players can also combine two or more different stars to form a new star. There’s a power meter that drains slowly as time passes, which keeps things interesting. The meter can be filled by quickly collecting stars, eventually resulting in a victory. Although simple, this game has a certain charm about it.
Well, Touch Dimensions has [...]
Mobile devices are perfect vehicles for playing puzzle/strategy games like Sudoku. However, there are so many Sudoku apps for Windows Mobile that it’s hard to figure out which one is the best.

Tripplix is a new Windows Mobile puzzle game that closely resembles the popular Bejeweled series. The idea is to match three or more blocks of the same color to blow them up. Chain reactions or multiple groups earn you bonus points. There are also power-ups to add to the excitement (bombs, time/point bonus). Here’s the kicker; you have a power meter that drains slowly as the clock ticks and the only way to keep it filled is by destroying more tiles. The total points you score at one time correlates to the amount of life you get in return. Once the power meter is empty, the game [...]

Yuji Naka, former Sega executive and co-creator of the original Sonic the Hedgehog game, has been working on a new title for Windows Phone. The game is called “Ivy the Kiwi?” and it takes advantage of the touchscreen technology found on most Windows phones.

The gameplay is simple and reminiscent of many Nintendo DS titles, which often concentrate on innovative and interactive touch gameplay. For the most [...]
