Robo for Palm

HeroCraft has just released a new puzzle game for PDA and Smartphones called Robo.Move the stones and use the bombs to explode the laser cannons which block robo's way out of the maze.

Love makes people commit imprudences, follies and other stupid things. Will anybody in his right mind risk his health and life, get under the rays of laser guns, break legs in the stone conglomerations, carry dreadful bombs and wander in fatal mazes? Love is a virus; and there are no walls which can stop it. Even robots can't resist it. You are able to become a participant of this unusual love-story. Try to add some logic and consistency in this bustle of the hot cybernetic passion, overcome together with Robo all thinkable obstacles, walking through snow storms, scotched deserts and cold mountains. It is known that only humans intellect could rescue machines that are going mad.

So Robo has to save Eny, who is kidnapped by evil Discharger and now held in the underground compound, protected by lasers. In order to move, our hero has to block laser beams that guard all passageways or destroy laser cannons. This objective can be reached by moving stones to block laser beams, using bombs to explode laser cannons or (for the gaming Einsteins) making cannons destroy each other. The game rules are very simple, but the game itself is not, because bombs and stones are very scarce. Are you ready to use your brains to get out of this situation?

RoGame Software has updated Mozart to version 3.4.1.

Mozart is a program designed to aid in the process of learning how to read music. It does that in form of a game. Once the game is started via the toolbar or menu a stream of whole notes comes streaming from the right side of the screen. These notes have to be named in the order of their appearance with the current input instrument (i.e. piano). Once a note gets too close to the clef on the left side of the screen it disappears in a cloud of vapor and the player loses one life. For each note named in time the player gets one point or more depending on level. The further the game progresses the more notes will appear in this steady stream and their range will widen to potentially include many ledger lines above and below the staff. Once a player has depleted all his lives the game is over and he might receive a high score.

Mozart is available here for $24.95.
