Release: Meteor (Palm and PPC)
      #15313 - 09/10/04 02:34 PM

Mobile Stream has just released a new breakout style game, Meteor.

Meteor is an amazing Breakout remake for Palm and PocketPC devices. You have to destroy bricks, saving your meteor from enemy missiles and getting as much power-ups as possible. 90 various levels with attractive space environment make much fun for players of all ages



More information can be found here along with a link to buy, a tutorial, and demo versions.

It actually looks like the Ricochet game ported by Astraware:

Here is a screen shot of that game:

No doubt. The graphics look sharper and the FX pieces look interesting. I wonder if they developed it or ported it.

It says remake, but that doesn't help a lot. It does remind me a good deal of ricochet.

We concluded an agreement with Funny Arts to port their PC Meteor game to
handhelds. Now we released the Meteor game for Palm OS 5 and Pocket PC devices. The release for Symbian-based smartphones is coming soon.
Our Meteor game has nothing to do with Ricochet and Acky XP breakout-style games.

Thanks for clearing that up! The Funny Arts games look great and you guys did a great job carrying that over to PDAs.

Thanks for the info. It's nice to know the developers keep up with us, and are willing to answer questions.

OK, beta testing has finished and we have released the Meteor game for VGA Pocket PCs.

We are happy to announce that Meteor is the only action game for VGA (we know of) that uses hardware acceleration on Toshiba e800/e805 handhelds. And that makes it run really fast on these devices, unlike some other VGA games.
