June 15, 2005 — LearningToGo, one of the leading software developers for PDA, announced today the start of its Summer Sale 2005. Two of its most popular game apps, ChessToGo and Pixionary for Palm, are on sale at 32% markdown.
Released last December, Pixionary for Palm takes the famous Charade game into the mobility of a handheld entertainment. It has three game modes to choose from: Team Play, Round-Robin and Free-for-All. Highly customizable, players can choose the length of the game, its drawing time and the type of hint to be given. Tip-offs are disclosed either by the first letter of the word, or the number of letters in it.
Not to be underestimated, the Pixionary for Palm is more than just a handheld game. Featuring over 3,000 words in 8 different categories from animals to myths, it serves as a powerful learning tool. Definitions are provided by the award-winning DictionaryToGo, which sourced out its database from Princeton University’s WordNet lexical reference system. When used by teachers and students, the Pixionary for Palm makes teaching and learning English words an enjoyable experience.
ChessToGo for Palm is a mobile game program for Palm OS 5 and its higher versions. Housing power-packed features, it enables users to play chess anywhere, either against the computer, or a human opponent. The game application is integrated with the company’s trademark user-friendly functions. Facilitating a more personalized game, ChessToGo for Palm gives users the freedom to play at different levels and with various tactics. Highly-adjustable, the animation speed and thematic skins can be changed to suit individual preferences.
Another great feature the developers included in the application is the auto-save function. It automatically loads games, including uncompleted ones. This allows the user to review or resume his game anytime he wants to. ChessToGo for Palm is also equipped with the undo/redo function.
Dubbed as a game for the intellects, chess has a somewhat diverse cult following that defies normal demographics. It was just a matter of time before its popularity extended to the PDAs. With over 120 pattern combinations, grandmasters and novice players alike will find LearningToGo’s ChessToGo for Palm as enjoyable as the real thing.
Pixionary and ChessToGo for Palm are on sale until June 30, 2005. For more information on LearningToGo’s Summer Sale, please visit their website at www.learningtogo.com.
