Some months ago I published the first version of a little open source game called Destroids for webOS (The OS of the Palm Pre and the Palm Pixi smartphones) and I'm still improving it weekly. It's a simple Asteroid-like game where you fly a spaceship through an asteroid field and shoot asteroids and UFOs.

At the same time Palm started the Palm Hot Apps contest where app developers can win $100,000 (For the first rank), $10,000 (for rank 2-21) or $1,000 (for rank 22-221) in two categories (Free apps and paid apps). For the time the contest is running I placed a widget on the right side of my blog which shows the current position of Destroids. If you own a Palm Pre or Palm Pixi and you like the original Asteroids game then download Destroids now and make me rich.

More information about Destroids can be found on pre|

How do I donate to you? I'd like to send you a couple of bucks for Destroids, since it's my number 1 time waster on the Pre. Do you have a PayPal account?

There is also a Donate button in the app menu of Destroids (Go to Help
or Prefs screen to access it).

Hi Klaus,

I have a great idea about a new game for Palm WEBOS and I would like to know if you want to develop this new game with me to see if it is getting a good level in the new Paln app contest.

By the way, I am not the kind of person playing games in my phone, but I know you really did a good job with Destroids.
