This collection of nine familiar games is perfect for the handheld user who has time to kill-- like a bus commute or waiting-room downtime. Its feature presentation is the official Palm version of Tetris Classic, the popular and addictive think-quick puzzle game of fitting falling blocks into solid lines. Not only is this version true to the original, but it includes four Tetris modes--Marathon, Garbage, Ultra and Timed.

And that's not all that's included. If you get tired of getting whipped by Tetris, switch over to a more subdued and strategic game of PocketChess. Choose from eight levels of difficulty and customize the colors of the board and pieces as you play against a talented Pal engine opponent or against a human opponent with a Palm device.

Don't have that much time? The Game Pak also includes great versions of PokerDice (Yahtzee with a poker mentality), Solitaire (Klondike, Demon or Baker's variations), Backgammon, three modes of Colors (similar to Bejewelled) and basic Checkers. So many games for so little cost--not bad.
