Welcome to this week's roundup! HeroCraft has announced a new logic game, Hexxagon Labs, that will be released next month. It's been a slow week for Palm OS software, but we look at some free software that you might find useful and fun. We also see what's new and updated in WM/PPC software.
Hexxagon Labs, by Herocraft, is a classical puzzle game which will provide not only fascinating entertainment, but will also give much interesting information. The game suggests launching intellectual battles on 17 various arenas. The main goal of each party in three different game modes is to occupy as many cells on the field as possible by repainting opponent's chips and not loosing your own. Rules simplicity turns unlimited profundity of tactical manoeuvres and artful tricks. At that you can play both against a computer and also the two or even three together on the same phone device!
Funny chemistry, witty physics, exciting astronomy� Do you think that there are no such things on our planet? If so, you haven�t play Hexxagon Labs yet! Just drop in to the most unusual laboratory in the world and test the power of your mind!
In addition, Hexxagon Labs is full of interesting facts and entertaining material. Before every level you will receive new astonishing scientific information giving you the opportunity, when you have the chance, to show off your erudition and amaze acquaintances by your knowledge.
The more you play Hexxagon Labs, the smarter you will become!
Scheduled for release on May 8th!
Keep an eye out for this awesome sounding game! Hexxagon Labs will also be available for Windows Mobile.
Since there's not much in the way of new releases this week, I thought I'd mention there's always the option for trying out some FREE software!
Check out these free games/apps:
FileZ, by nosleep software, is an easy to use file manager for the Palm OS. Filez gives you full access to view, edit, copy, move, delete, and beam any file on your handheld all through a simple and clean interface. It can be used for any purpose, such as organizing your files, or setting which ones should get backed up.

ClickClick Alarm, by RNS::, is a desktop application that can load any MIDI file from your PC and install it directly to your Palm, making it available as an alarm sound. ClickClick Alarm is as simple as it can be. The following example shows 3 simple steps of installing a polyphonic alarm sound.
INSTALL MORE ALARMS ClickClick Alarm offers automatic conversion from SMF1 to SMF0. SMF0 is the only MIDI subformat that Palm can play. No more silent or uninstallable alarms in your Palm!
ClickClick Alarm can install MIDI files whose size is no greater than 64K to your Palm. However in some rare occasions (depending on the MIDI file format) the Palm's MIDI codec may not be able to play it. ClickClick Alarm supports all Palm OS devices except for Treo smartphones.
