Newton gaming corner

by Luca Falzoni, italian version

This is a list of freeware/shareware games for the Apple Newton MessagePad.
These packages were tested on my MP 130.
Where applicable I list the URL where you can find the latest version; there are screenshots, memory requirements (not heap), price and short descriptions.
Please report games not listed or broken links, thank you.

Thanks to Herb Otto, Namba One Systems for giving permission to distribute their games.

I have a huge list of games to be added... so come back tomorrow :)
