Gaming on the Palm OS similarities to Nintendo DS.
I'm an avid gamer myself, but I've gotten to the point where I like playing
simple, quick bursts, or twitchy games that last less than 5 mins.
Example. Wario Ware, Animal Crossing, Super Mario Bros. 1.
I just can't stand very long games. One thing brought to mind and is related to Palm gaming.
Is the Palm OS considered a platform for nongamers similar to those who play Nintendo DS?
There are similar games for both systems, e.g. Cake Mania ports.
Sudoku is for both platforms too. Crazy Daisy anyone?
What do you think of Apps like Digipet? Palmpiano? McRazor?
Useless/Cute Apps? running on the Palm. Most of them are freeware.
I see similarities of these misc apps similar to the DS.
The DS has their music game: Electroplankton. / McChords = Palm OS
Would it be possible to have a Nintendogs like clone on the Palm?
Since the Nintendo DS and the Palm OS use styluses, the gameplay must be the same in terms of content? The only difference is that the DS is 2 screens, a mic to blow into, compared to the Palm OS.
Anyone think of this.
Should we expect more useless/cute misc apps I mentioned above? e.g. McRazor, Pet Rock, etc. to be developed to attract nongamers to the Palm OS? Anyone into those apps?
I think Palm has a market untapped here.
