Porting progress of OpenXCom for Symbian s60

I've started porting OpenXCom after achieving a binary that can run on the device
I have noticed that the the project is incomplete and right now is at version 0.2

A playable version (according to the author) will be 0.5 so we will wait till then to have a port.

Heart of the Alien Redux for Symbian S60v3 by Ronen K.
--------------------------------
To receive updates please visit: http://mobile4dev.blogspot.com/


Heart of the Alien is the sequel for Another world which was only released for
SegaCD.

To know more about this engine please visit http://hota.sourceforge.net/ (Maintained by Gil Megidish)

Release 0.1(4) base on version 1.2.2 by Gil Megidish (http://hota.sourceforge.net/)
This version has:
 * First release, Redux functionality
 * Quick save/load
 * Game was tested on n95


!!! IMPORTANT !!!
-----------------

There are 2 versions of the sis file (because Sound in this game is awesome)
 1. A version with Music (Heartaline_release_sound_signed.sis)
 2. A version Without Music (but with sound - Heartaline_release_no_sound_signed.sis)

The version with music is very CPU intensive you can try it first
but the music might be choppy (It is very choppy on a N95 8GB)
So choose the correct version.

New App CogsWatch

Hello

This time I have a watch face for you.
I wanted something that looks a bit Steampunk
that is why I have create CogsWatch

Unfortunately the cogs do not move when in Watch mode but you can always
run the application itself to see them move!
The cogs do not move due to the platform limitation, the application is invoked
only once a minute to conserve battery.
The lightning in the lower left is changing every minute to a random pattern and you can
check the remaining charge in the 0-100 meter.

TODO:
1. Shutoff the clock at night to conserve battery.
2. Add more date formats (not just european)
3. Add low battery indicator, any suggestions?
4. Maybe add showing of alarms that the user has set up.

Download

Hope you enjoy this one and let me know if you encounter any bugs.

TowerStack 1.1

Hello,
I've modified TowerStack slightly by adding a battery meter on the main screen.
The meter is calibrated for the WristPDA meaning that if the percentage falls bellow
20% charge I consider it critical, somewhere at 30% the meter will flash with a warning icon.

Also changed the About description somewhat.

A new game TowerStack

New blog,New Game.

Time for the first game, it is called TowerStack, you stack blocks one unto the other

Bug reports are welcome as comments.

Welcome to the blog.

Hello and welcome,
I recently acquired a WristPDA (by abacus) and although it is very old (in technological terms)
I like it a lot and that is why I'm developing Applications and Games for it.
In past life I developed software for palm for living, now I do it for fun.

The games should be compatible with most PalmOS devices with version 4.1 and up.
Most of the apps will be adapted to the WristPDA specifically to make them easier to use
on the platform.

So stay tuned here for new apps.
Long live PalmOS!
