    It was perfect. Downloaded fine. Thanks a lot for sharing that (and keeping it!)

    I know I got this zip file Raspa; but I'm not sure where I saved it. Is it possible to get again?

    I just visited plbm.com and was surprised to see it's still online, and with recent content. There is even an anthology of old PalmOS and DOS games ported to Android. My personal favorites (Planet Lander, Chopper Rescue, Scud Attack) are not included, but the one I tried is similar to Planet Lander and runs in a small screen with the original controls, plus some larger round control buttons under the window. I started playing on my Z1, then recalled I have the original games in an original PalmOS device with hardware buttons, so why not get the original gaming experience, with the added bonus of nostalgia? :)

    Still, should anyone want to try them, here's the link

    Looks like he only recently put them up given the dates and number of downloads.

    Thanks Raspa, missed that Dropbox link; but got it now.

    It still bugs me that the games on Android are often inferior to Apple versions. I was playing an old arcade game on someone's iPad that's much better than the Android versions I have.

    HEY EVERYBODY! Holy berries, look at that... my MS-DOS and PalmOS games are still around, or at least they were in 2012 to 2016.

    As noted above, I've been bringing some of them back to Android and iOS, and doing other fun and all fully free games.

    I just created this account tonight so not sure if they let me post links, but I'll try. Here's where ALL of my current personal games can be found today, many in highly-active development.

    Apple Appstore:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/kurt-dekker/id680019078

    Google Play Store: (both Android touch and Android TV)
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Kurt+Dekker

    Itch.io:
    https://kurtdekker.itch.io/

    Oh also, these are all just freeware nowadays... no advertising, no nothing.

    Welcome to Brighthand, Kurt Dekker!

    Just keeping inline with the 'blast from the past' theme…
    EDIT: also wanted to say thanks, for all your efforts; I've very much enjoyed your games.
    Be well, stay safe (damn virus!)

    Thanks! Making games for PalmOS was always a lot of fun, since it was one of the first devices I always had with me. Only 160x160 pixels made you really keep it compact!!

    I actually still have 100% of that source code, and a lot of the games have been integrated into KurtMaster2D, and periodically I dig up another one and put it in there.

    And I think the Palm environment only had like 96k of RAM total for apps?? It wasn't much, that's for sure. Good times, good times.
