Namco Brings Palm OS Users a Blast from the Past

Namco has recently made an addition to its collection of classic arcade games for Palm OS users: Dig Dug. Other games that were already in this series include Pac-Man, Galaga, and Galaxian.

Any of these can be ordered from the PalmGear web site. The regular price is $14.99, but some of the older games are currently on sale for $13.49.


Remember the Good Old Days with Pocket Commodore 64

Clickgamer has released an updated version of Pocket Commodore 64, its official emulator of this classic computer for Pocket PCs. BIOS ROMs for the original console are included, plus much more.

Version 2.51 supports VGA screens and landscape mode plus stereo sound.

Pocket Commodore 64, which costs $24.95, can be found on the Clickgamer web site.


Brando Offering USB Toys

Brando is now taking orders for the USB Circus Cannon and USB Missile Launcher, which a really two versions of the same toy. Each hooks up to a Windows XP computer through its USB port and allows users to shoot three small missiles. Controls and sound-effects are provided by the PC.

(This really has nothing to do with mobile technology, other than it’s being offered by an online retailer that offers many accessories for handhelds and smartphones.)

Both products can be purchased from the Brando web site for $35 each.
