Tetris, Sudoku on Windows Mobile? It must be Boxing Day

Brian Eastwood Profile: Brian Eastwood

Having burned more AA batteries than I can count whilst playing Tetris for Game Boy, I would never withhold Tetris news from anyone. And is there is Sudoku news, too? Well, then, I’m a joyous child on Boxing Day.*

Blogger Carlos Aguilar Mares has created versions of both Tetris and Sudoku that are compatible with Windows Mobile v5 and v6. For these games, as for all good things, necessity was the mother of invention: “During my last two business trips (to Barcelona for TechEd and Mexico for ReMix) I was way too bored on the plane.”

The blog entry Sudoku and Tetris Game for Windows Mobile has some details about compatibility and how to install the games. Really enterprising folks can go straight to http://www.carlosag.net/mobile/ and download the games there. Enjoy!

(*Boxing Day, for those unaware, is a public holiday for many British Commonwealth countries, with origins that date back to feudal times. It refers to the packaging of gifts and not to pugilism.)

(UPDATED Jan. 7 — Another plane trip, another set of games from Carlos Aguilar Mares. Over the Christmas holiday, he created Backgammon and Connect4 for Windows Mobile. His recommendation after this project? “[Y]ou do want to download the Windows Mobile 6 SDK if you are going to target that version (which is what my cell phone has), since it will add new Visual Studio 2005 Project Templates and new Emulator images, which will help you a lot.”)
