HeroCraft to Release Long-Awaited Revival for PDA & Smartphones

HeroCraft is going to release a long-awaited game Revival for Palm OS, Windows Mobile OS and Symbian OS (S60, S60 v.3, UIQ & UIQ v.3) platforms. Date of release is January 15, 2008.

Revival is a turn-based military strategy game in the tradition of the world-famous game title, “Civilization”. The player will have to explore continents, direct battles on land and sea, build towns, develop science and uphold the economy of his empire.

Unconquerable general or inborn diplomat? Talented economist or crafty politician? You choose your path to glory in the world of Revival.

The detailed information about the game, including screenshots and trailer is available on the HeroCraft PDA site - http://smart.herocraft.com/revival.

ScaleMaster v1.0

Scales are elementary to all musicianship. They provide flavor and harmonic structure, but are at the same time fairly complex. ScaleMaster, by RoGame Software, is designed to help in several key areas concerning scales. It lists over 100 scale types in all keys and shows them in music notation. There are four different clefs available (treble, bass, alto and tenor). Additionally scale degrees are shown qualified by the interval to the root. To help visualization there are four virtual instruments (bass, guitar, mandolin and piano). These virtual instruments feature overlays that can show scale degrees or position of a note in the current scale and can be shifted to all available positions. Any scale can be sounded out using RoGame’s Sound Libraries (Palm OS 5.0 and higher only) or the built-in synthesizer.

Designed for the beginning musician as well as the professional, ScaleMaster is an excellent tool towards advancement in theory and scales in particular, making it easy to look up a scale in seconds, getting a taste of the flavor of a particular scale by listening to it, or finding out how to play it on one’s instrument.


  • Over 100 listed scales
  • Realistic playback sounds
  • Notation display with accidentals
  • All keys
  • 4 clefs
  • 4 virtual instruments (bass, guitar, mandolin, piano)

inCubus v1.00

inCubus, by inDev Software is a simple, but addictive, logical game which will explode your mind for sure! It has unique game concept -- a combination of well-known Bejeweled, old classic Tetris and Color Lines. Once you try it you'll never stop.

So, the basic idea of inCubus is to collect same colors on front sides of cubes by rotating them. You can see only three sides of cube (front, top and right), but opposite sides of each cube are identical, i.e. cube can contain maximum of three different colors. It also means that there is no difference in which direction you turn the cube -- to the left or to the right -- result will be the same.

There are three different game types in inCubus. In time competition you have limited amount of time and the goal is to score as much points as possible. You can select suitable time limit from predefined set of 6 values (from 1 to 30 minutes)

Score competition is an opposite game type to time competition: the goal is to decrease given score to zero as fast as possible. There are 5 predefined score limits (from 2500 to 15000 points)

Both time and score competition game types have their own high score tables. You can try to beat predefined scores or clear them and start to build your own.

Third game type -- practice -- is a kind of training. There is no time or score limit, you just play game for fun. Also, there are no high score tables for this type of game.

Each game type has three difficulty levels. When you set higher difficulty level the number of colors on the field increases. Easy level field has only 6 colors, medium -- 9 and at high difficulty you play with 12 colors.


  • Unique game concept
  • Three game types
  • Three difficulty levels
  • Top 10 players table

IM for Skype v1.1.1

SHAPE Services has updated it's IM for Skype to version 1.1.1.

Skype wirelessly anywhere in a cost-effective way.

IM for Skype is a fully mobile application for voice and text communication with other Skype users and cost-effective calling to landlines and mobiles. No huge data traffic for calls!

IM for Skype works worldwide in any 3G/GSM/CDMA network and is not dependent on WiFi zones.

See how you can save:
Example 1: Call from UK Vodafone phone to PC with Skype.

Let’s say Mary is on IM for Skype, lives in UK and her carrier is Vodafone. Mary wants to call her friend who has Skype on her PC. SkypeOut rate will be equal to destination rate for calling to UK Vodafone of 0.205 Euro per minute plus the connection fee rate (0.039 Euro ).

Example 2: Call from UK Vodafone phone to landline in USA.

Let’s say Mary is on IM for Skype, lives in UK and her carrier is Vodafone. Mary wants to call her college friend who lives in USA, Florida to her phone number. To calculate the SkypeOut rate, just add the destination rate for calling to to UK Vodafone (0.205 Euro) and the destination rate to call to USA (0.017 Euro). So the rate to call from USA to UK via IM for Skype is 0.222 Euro per minute plus the double connection fee rate (0.078 Euro).

You can save even more by using ANY landline number instead of mobile! SkypeOut tariffs to landlines and mobiles are different and in most cases calling to mobile is much more expensive than calling to landlines. You can enter any landline number (it can be the phone number of a friend you came to visit, or even a phone number of a local restaurant) in the Call Back field in IM and the call will be forwarded to the number you indicate.

Example 3: Call from UK Vodafone phone to landline in USA with Call Back to landline.

Let’s say Mary is on IM for Skype, lives in UK and her carrier is Vodafone. Mary wants to call her college friend who lives in USA, Florida to her phone number. To make the most economy call Mary enters the landline UK number of her Mother in the Call Back field. Now the rate will include the destination rate for calling to to UK landline (0.017 Euro) and the destination rate to call to USA ( 0.017 Euro). So the rate to call from USA to UK via IM is 0.034 Euro per minute plus the double connection fee rate ( 0.078 Euro).

This product uses the Skype API but is not endorsed, certified or otherwise approved in any way by Skype.


  • Make cost-effective calls to any destination. IM for Skype is based on SkypeOut service that allows users to make and receive calls for a low fee.
  • See who is online and chat with Skype users who are logged in with their Skype accounts on PC. Text messaging is cost effective way to say something to your contacts instead of sending an SMS.
  • One Time Fee, all updates are included. One time fee
  • for the application, no monthly subscription. By purchasing IM for Skype users are entitled to all products upgrades.
  • Intuitive interface, easy to use. User friendly intuitive interface and built-in help make the software really easy to use for everyone.
