Slotcar Racer (WM05)

Slotcar Racer is a new game by Madbeetle Limited.

Slot car racing is a fast, neck-and-neck racing game. Keep you car in its slot while you race around the track as fast as you can, by applying just the right amount of acceleration.


  • Great Gameplay: go too fast around the corners and you spin off the track. The key to speed is in the slide, you need to get your car to slide just enough for maximum speed, but not too much or it'll come out its slot.
  • Cool Collisions: cars can slide around corners and knock each other off! ... once you spin out of your slot and slide across the track you might just knock your opponent off the track too!
  • Dynamic AI: your opponent will give you a real neck and neck race experience. If the computer is winning it will ease off and drive less aggressively, but if it is behind it will try extra hard to catch up. This means that that once you get the hang of it, the cars will race side by side all the way to the finish!
  • Two Game Modes: the game includes race mode, where you have to race against the computer in 60 levels of ever increasing difficulty (faster and faster), and free race mode, where you can build and race on your own tracks.
  • Varied Tracks: there are 10 tracks for the game mode which you can't change and 10 tracks for free race mode, which using the built in track editor you can change to create your own tracks.

Slotcar Racer is available here for $4.95.

Pocket Mechanic Professional

Anton Tomov Software has recently updated Pocket Mechanic Professional to version 2.73.

Optimize your device and storage for peak performance, clean up system junk and free up precious memory occupied by unwanted files and OS objects, maintain the system integrity and prevent possible problems, ensure your privacy and protect your investments in storage cards and mobile device hardware by using a simple and descriptive user interface yet offering robust arsenal of powerful Pocket PC maintenance tools this is what Pocket Mechanic Professional does well.

Pocket Mechanic Professional is able to completely bypass the file system drivers of Windows CE and access the files directly through our own FATFS layer the heart of many vital modules dealing directly with the file system. The aggressive and efficient FAT and cluster caches further increase the performance of that layer resulting in an average speed up of nearly 300% in all file operations compared to the performance of the OS itself. Our defragment code is the faster than any other similar utility for the Windows CE platform. The integrated logging facilities provide ultra detailed information on what the application is doing and allow us to trace issues and improve the software virtually in hours. Developed in our labs the GFx module takes care of the rich user interface and ensures compatibility with both low-resolution and high-resolution screens, VGA, QVGA or square resolution devices and guarantees the "eye-candy" style our products are well known with. But to us look and feel is no more important than stability, quality and usability. Our engineers focused on creating a framework of tools so huge and complex it took us nearly 12 months of careful studies of the internals of the Windows CE operating system and hundreds of thousands of lines of C code to bring you this innovative product but we hope you, the end user, will not be disappointed.

Version v2.73 of Pocket Mechanic Professional is a minor update containing a few optimization fixes and a fix for a GDI leak in the progress controls in the application. GDI leak in the progress controls was Fixed.

Pocket Mechanic Professional is available here for $29.95.

We'll be back next soon with more Palm OS and WM Treo software news.
