Tetra Master for Windows Mobile
Role-playing game fans among you may remember Tetra Master, one of the highlights of the small set of mini-games included within the legendary Final Fantasy 9 game for the PlayStation console. If this game means anything to you, then you may be pleased to learn that XDA member zyphuris55 has just ported Tetra Master to the Windows Mobile platform.
The card-based game is one of the most popular from the Final Fantasy franchise despite its baffling instructions manual. zyphuris55 has rectified this by improving upon the original manual and incorporating it into his application, allowing completely new players to get to grips with the game in a matter of minutes.

Available in the game thread, it currently only supports WVGA resolution touchscreen devices but the developer hopes to support VGA soon.
