    Just wondering if anyone here plays as many game on their PPC as I do. I review games for a PDA gaming site so I get new ones constantly, however my PPC has taken over my Gameboy Advance spot.

    I do, but it's limited to the MS Game Pack (or whatever it's called). I'd like to get MAME for the PPC [​IMG].

    Is there a version of MAME for the PocketPC? That would rock!

    I played around with em back when I had a PPC (don't have one anymore-long story). There's some interesting stuff out there (ziosoft was actually porting Ultima Underworld to PPC) that I tried, including a couple of emulators. The problem is that there's a real lack of good controls on the ppc, and it makes any emulated games tricky to play. PoketNES is a decent NES emu though, and there is a PPC version of MAME out there, but I have no idea what it'll run. Good place to check for both of those is www.zophar.net, which is a decent emulator site.

    Probably my favorite PPC game is the strategy game Pocket Slay. It is a conquest game played against five computer players. The author also has a great Risk game with some very tough computer opponents.
