If you don’t know who Kickoo is, you should. They’ve got two of the best looking Palm OS games I’ve ever seen. They play very weel too, so the whole package is in place. Breakout is the classic arcade style game and TacTik is a Stratego-like strategy game.

Here’s what they’ve updated, along with a few screenshots.

Breakout –


– Palm OS 5 ready.
– hires+ support ( 320×450, using a nice customised grafitti skin ).
– enhanced sounds effects ( digitized samples, simultaneously on some devices ).

– D-pad ( Tungsten T ) support in the custom dialog boxes as well as in the game.
– JogDial can be used to select choices on the game’s custom dialog boxes.
