Great Playstation emulator FpseCE 0.10, finally, released! + video

We emulator freaks have been waiting for version FpseCE 0.10 for at least two and a half years. Back in May-June 2007 when I published my (almost) all-in-one article series on emulating other computing platforms (see THIS) on Windows Mobile, everyone was already waiting for FpseCE 0.10. This is why, back in 2007, I chose not to publish a PS Emulation Bible back in 2007, by the way – I didn’t want to end up having to (completely) rewrite it after the imminent release of the brand new version.

Numpty Physics released for Windows Mobile!


Touch Physics has become an instant success on the iPhone. I’ve also purchased it for my phone and spent a lot of time with it.



A Windows Mobile game based on the same ideas has just been released. It requires you to draw objects that, after falling down, trush a ball towards its destination. It’s a free title (as opposed to the iPhone one, which costs $3).

Availability, compatibility

REVIEW: Need for Speed: Undercover released for Windows Mobile

The iPhone folks have eagerly been waiting for this title for at least half a year – and it’s still isn’t know when it comes out (see THIS for some additional info & comments). Despite the superior profitability of the iPhone platform when it comes to gaming, EA Mobile, the developer of the Need for Speed franchise, deemed it better to release the Windows Mobile and the Blackberry versions first.

MWC: At last a (somewhat) gaming-friendly Windows Mobile phone!

I’ve long been mourning on the lack of a Windows Mobile phone with a decent D-pad for gaming and running emulators. Windows Mobile devices with a, for gaming, usable directional pad are far and between. (Actually, the last Windows Mobile device to have a decent gaming controller was the Asus A620 five and half a year ago…)

The first REAL video ever published: MWC: Gameloft’s 3D accelerated Prince of Persia running on the 1GHz Toshiba TG01!

Topics:

Yesterday I posted a quick video of Gameloft’s Prince of Persia, which is a 3D accelerated title making use of the 3D hardware acceleration of the forthcoming and really-really fast (1GHz Snapdragon) Toshiba TG01. Today, I made two additional videos – now with a tripod and at the resolution of 1024*768, meaning far better video quality and stabilized picture.

10 for 9 in '08 - Skyforce Reloaded (the oops edition)

It turns out that I inadvertently left out the category of Scrolling Shooters when I made all of the posts for this article. Unfortunately, my favorite scrolling shooter for the PocketPC didn't actually get nominated this year, which I suppose was my fault. In lieu of that the clear pick was Skyforce Reloaded, which was still a very good game in this genre.

Can You Dig It? - A Review Of Glyph

Astraware certainly has a knack for bringing the right puzzle games to mobile platforms - anyone heard of a little gem called Bejeweled? However, as far as their relationship with Binoteq and Sandlot Games is concerned, the quality of products hasn't been quite so uniform. Thankfully, Glyph falls happily on the positive side of the unbalanced scale. Part Jawbreaker, part "uncover the picture", and part Simon Says, Glyph is a unique combination of sub-genres that blend together to make a fun and interesting game.

10 for 9 in '08 - Through Enemy Eyes

We've come to the end of the year, and I've come to the end of this article. The last category I judged for was Top-down (maze) Puzzle. Through Enemy Eyes was really more than that, but even had it not been, it was by far the best game in this category.

Fly Away - A Quick Look At Butterfly

10 for 9 in '08 - Spb Air Islands

Well, I'm almost done with this series. This entry marks game number nine of ten, and the category is strategy. In my mind Spb Air Islands was the clear winner, primarily due to its unique mode of resource management. Without further ado, here are my favorite points about Spb Air Islands.

10 for 9 in '08 - Boneyboy

I've tried any platform game I could get my hands on for the PocketPC platform, and up until Archibald's Adventures which was released a few days ago (you can read my review here), nothing has really stood out from the pack. However, of the ones that made it into the list of Jump & Run Scrollers for this year's awards, Boneyboy was definitely my favorite.

Are You Smarter Than A Travel Genius?

HeroCraft has quickly become one of my favorite mobile phone developers.  I can't say that I've liked everything they've done, but I admire the fact that they've developed such a diverse range of products.  They also have a knack for putting their own spin on a classic style of gaming.  Whether you're playing the laser-and-mirrors update Robo, the stylish Ball Rush Aqua that proved there was more to be done with Breakout clones, or the unique strategy game Gone In 60 Seconds, it's clear that HeroCraft purposes in their mind to bring you a different experience with each game t

10 for 9 in '08 - Obulis: The Second Epoch

For puzzle games, my top pick was Obulis: The Second Epoch.  To be truthful, this could almost go to either part one or two, it just happens that part two was the one nominated for the awards this year.  Some of the puzzle design was a bit better in part two, but if you haven't played either, it's definitely worth your time playing both.
