Connex is a member of our series of what we call the "Small is Beautiful" program range! Connex packs no less than 19 Connect 4/Gomoku type game variants into a self contained 38K executable. (I say 50K allowing for an optional 8K help file). The current setup is 98K with installation for all PocketPCs with ARM, MIPS +SH3. It has a full range of features - nice graphics/animation, a proper intelligent alpha-beta search, and loads of functionality - probably more than most of the fat old Visual basic type games you see that are many times the size. Its a sort of "RISC" philosophy applied to coding - the idea is the smaller code is, the faster and more responsive it is.. So when I coded Connex I always paid attention to the size issue - I would the PocketPC API directly, choose the graphics carefully, weight up the benefit of any added feature against its impact on final size, and so on.. It does not mean that a small program represents less work, (or even lines of code) than a large one - just that more attention is paid to the issue of size when coding it.

So does it matter on a trivial game like this? Well yes - most people who might have this little applet will appeciate still having more memory for the serious things they do on thier palmhelds - more RAM means more speed for other applications.

For Palm-held computers, small really is beautiful!
