article.gifIII. Palm Freeware - 3. Matches

Matches

  • Version : 3.5 (September 2007)
  • Freeware for :
  • Language :
  • Screen :
  • Downloadable File : matches.zip (52 Kb)

Matches is a silly little game in which each of the two players (computer and you) removes one after the other from one to three matches. The player who finds himself with the last match looses the game.
Matches comes with sound. You've got to feel the pleasure of seeing and hearing matches burn

MatchesHB

  • Version : 1.0 (October 2003)
  • Freeware for : PalmOS versions 3.5 / 4.x / 5.x
  • Language :
  • Screen :
  • Downloadable File : matcheshb.zip (39 Ko)

MatchesHB is the same silly game as Matches, but it was developped with HB++. This is my first program made with this wonderful fully integrated Basic compiler RAD tool.

Matches Source Code

I have ported Matches in different languages and development tools, that was a very good exercise for me in all these tools. Matches is even a sample software for all these tools. So, the Matches source code is open and free.

3.4 (02/23/05)

- corrected a bug due to color version arrival (v1.9) that would put all pictures filled with black for the black & white version
- changed skin color for the human player picture which no more looks like a white "sick" skin!

Hello Apryl,

If I were to give the answer here, or even a clue towards it... you would have felt so disapointed to have missed the very little thing that you are bout to find by yourself

I am pretty sure that you will thank me when you will have found the trick

Cheers,
aldweb

I love the game, 'Matches', but I was hoping that the 'secret' would be revealed on the website.

I have figured something out, but it is not enough to matter when there are more than 15 matches left.

Help! I used to play this as a child, but I didn't get to play much. I want to show off to others!
 
Special !
