inCubus v1.00

inDev Software has released nCubus, 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

ChordLab v2.4.2

RoGame Software has released version 2.4.2 of ChordLab, the essential tool for song-writers and musicians in general assists with all chord spelling tasks. Features a built-in Circle of Fifths and chord finder for when you know the pitches, but not the chord. Many times chord spelling becomes an essential task, be it to communicate what you are playing to others or simply when writing it down. To complicate matters music theory is often complex and correctly spelling a chord that may have sharps AND flats, double flats or double sharps is not always easy. That is where ChordLab can be of great assistance as a sort of chord calculator.

In addition ChordLab can also show you how to finger given chords on the piano or guitar. It features all the standard voicings commonly used in Jazz, Rock, Pop, and elsewhere. This helps to write fitting music for an instrument one might not be too familiar with.

So, all in all, if you are playing any harmony instrument, take a look at this application. The demo is free. And - as always you get a year of free upgrades and free download service.


  • Cord Finder. This tool allows one to just enter a bunch of notes and find out what chord exactly these might represent. Many guitar players often play fingering combinations without being aware of the kind of chord these notes might represent. Notes can be entered just by pitch and without having to have the correct name.
  • Circle of Fifths which is implemented interactively and can be used to show parallel minor/major key signatures.

Mozart v3.5.3

Mozart Mozart version 3.5.3 was released by RoGame Software and 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.

With version 3.0 Mozart can use new sound modules from RoGame Software. These are part of a sound library that will be made available in other music education titles as well. The game includes a Grand Piano module that sounds very realistic. Palm OS 5.x is needed for playback of these new sound modules and playback is asynchronous on many devices like the newer Treos, which makes for a very realistic game experience.

Over the years also many music professionals have used Mozart mainly to improve the reading of unfamiliar keys. Version 3.0 adds key signatures which makes Mozart an even more valuable tool for the student as well as for the professional. A real boon, however, is the option to have the notes of the current key signature highlighted graphically in the current instrument. The Solfege instrument now works according the “movable DO” principle and the letter input instrument changes note names according to key. A toolbar button to switch between parallel major and minor makes this concept very transparent.

Another new feature in Mozart 3.0 are ranges. This concept has been implemented very broadly and allows for different ranges in every clef and instrument. By allowing the student to adjust the range of notes that can appear in a practicing session games can be better targeted towards specific weaknesses.

Previous users of Mozart will find many more new features in version 3.0 than can be described here. There is a new bass instrument. Sessions can be repeated. Solfege syllables can be switched to use Si instead of Ti. The game speed can be adjusted globally and is now constant, and much more. If you are involved in music in any capacity be it as student or teacher or professional, you want to take a look at this application. Get the demo and give it a spin.

Mozart is available by itself and as part of Music Bundle and Music Bundle Pro
