Golden Tee Golf (Pocket PC) v1.0.6

Golden Tee® Golf, by In-Fusio Inc, the most played coin-op video game franchise in U.S. history comes to mobile with Golden Tee® Golf Mobile Edge. Enhanced game play is the star!

Use the quick-play controls to curve around hills, “backspin” on greens and “roll” for extra distance on the fairways. More extras: 4 all-new challenging golf courses, quick-play putting and driving games, Daily and All-Time leaderboards, golfer customization and “great moments” replays.


  • the most played coin-op video game franchise in U.S.

I remember playing this game at the arcade and let me tell you, I LOVED the arcade version! If the mobile version is anything close to the arcade version, this game will rock!!

WordPlay v1.0

WordPlay, by Limelight Software Limited, is a great selection of word puzzles designed to give your brain its daily workout on the pocket pc.

Anagram Of The Day: A Today screen plugin which presents you with an anagram which can be solved by sliding the letters using the stylus.

Word Search: A classic game which involves finding a list of words in a grid of random letters. Words can appear horizontally, vertically, diagonally, and even backwards.

Code Breaker: A crossword type game where each letter of a completed crossword is substituted by a number. You have to crack the code and work out which number is associated with which letter in order to complete the puzzle.

Criss Cross: Insert the list of words into a crossword to reveal the completed puzzle. Race against the clock to achieve the fastest time and progress up the high score table.

Bits 'n' Pieces: Use the stylus to exchange pieces of the jumbled crossword in an attempt to reconstruct the completed puzzle. Two modes of play, each with their own high score tables, allow you to play a traditional or quick version of the game.


  • Choose between a traditional game, or speed challenge.
  • Play on a daily basis and watch your scores improve.
  • Word Lookup, find words matching a given pattern mask.
  • Anagram Solver, finds all anagrams of a given word.
  • High Scores for each game.
  • Player Profiles so each player has their own personal high scores.
  • Square screen aware.
  • Today Screen Plugin.
  • Scrollable Play area for more complex puzzles.
  • Suitable for all ages.

I LOVE word games! One feature I see listed that I'd like to have is the Anagram Solver. I see a word and like to think of all the anagrams possible, and the anagram solver looks like it could be just the ticket!
