Stax

Three timed color matching block buster games in one.

In "Shifty" and "Sucker" the goal is break blocks by combining three or more of the same color. New blocks keep getting added to the bottom of the board so you have to break blocks quickly to keep the board from filling up.The on

I haven't figured out the third game, "SpringShot". In it you use a catapult like device to break blocks. Matching colors don't seem to matter but as the game goes on the catapult gets weaker and weaker and finally stops working all together and you lose. I suspect there's a way to keep the catapult running at full strength but I haven't figured it out and there are no instructions.

Tetris

Tetris

I've published quite a few Tetris clones on BoostApps but Tetris fans are a picky lot and have their favorites. Developer Jordan Kiang wasn't happy with any of the of Java ME Tetris games he tried on his phone so he built his own. His primary goal was to reproduce the look, scoring and game play of the 1989 Gameboy version.

Features include a choice of levels 0-9, high scores, adapts to all screen sizes, no ads, doesn't use data.

Keys: press any number key to start the game (use Fn + number on QWERTY phones).

Up = rotate block; OK (Call on iDEN phones) = drop block fast

Facebook 2.9.1

Facebook has released a new version of the official Facebook Java app.  Facebook didn't bother to post a changlog so I have no Idea what new features, if any, are included.

Facebook bills this app as "Facebook for Every Phone" .  In spite of the name it doesn't work on many phones including my Motorola Rambler and Motorola i776. It installs and starts on both but the submit button on the log in form doesn't work. so there is no way to log in  The previous 2.3,  2.5.1 and 2.8.1  versions didn't work on my phones but they did on the Incognito, Juno, Factor, Rant and Seek, so I suspect this one will too.
