What is psAddle?:


It's the game of Addle ported to the Psion (see the Acknowledgements section below). psAddle is a simple but addictive numbers strategy game played against the Psion (or against another person). There are 3 difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, and Hard - as well as the 2-Player mode.

Game objectives:


Beat the machine's Score (or your opponent's) by as much as possible

Improve upon your own Best Score for that level

Beat the machine's Best Score (or your opponent's) and number of Wins

Start by taking any 'highlighted' number from the grid (i.e. tap on one of the cells in the raised line on the grid). The Psion (or your opponent) then has to select from the column/row you've chosen. The game is over when either player cannot move or all the numbers have been used up.

See the psAddle help file (accessed from the game) for full details of how to play, scoring, etc.

Acknowledgements:


psAddle was originally written for the Psion by John Peat (john@peatj.demon.co.uk) and he supported it until recently up to v1.01b. Unfortunately - due to other commitments - John was not able to continue to support or develop his programs as he would have liked. Consequently, FreEPOC have agreed to take over John's programs. And in the case of psAddle, that means me!
