In SameGame you remove patterned squares from a game board. Only squares adjoining squares of the same pattern can be removed. The more adjoining squares removed at the same time, the more points you score. The goal is to remove all of the squares.
This is not a PC or Macintosh game. This is for the Apple Newton, 3com Palm Pilot, and Windows CE devices. If you are looking for SameGame to run on your desktop computer, you'll have to look elsewhere.
You may have some questions about downloading and installing. We have the answers.
NOTE: SameGame is at end-of-life! Since most devices these days come with Bubblets or something similar, there's not much point in continuing to develop poor old SameGame. While we will continue to support it on a best effort basis, we won't be releasing any new versions.
Apple Newton MessagePad
This version is for Newtons that run Newton OS 1.x:
And this version is for newer Newtons that run Newton OS 2.x:
This was originally written for the Palm Pilot Professional, but we understand that it runs correctly on all Palms released thus far (up to the Palm VII).
Windows 95/98, NT, XP, Vista
There is no Windows 95/98/NT/XP/Vista version of this product. Do not download the Windows CE product; it will not run under desktop versions of Windows. Our profit margin is incredibly low on SameGame (the $10 fee barely covers the costs of selling it, let alone development time, advertising, and web space). For every product returned, we still have to pay the service fees for selling (and then refunding the price for) the product. Because of this, we can not offer refunds for Same Game if you purchase it for Windows CE expecting it to run under Windows 95/98/NT/XP/Vista. We really hate to do this and apologize, but our alternatives are to either raise the price, which punishes the people that actually pay for it, or to stop offering it as a product.
The following zip file archives contain setup programs, as well as the files necessary to install on all H/PC (and H/PC Pro) or PSPC machines running Windows CE 2.0 or later. The corresponding .cab files are just the installation tomes for the specific processor configurations listed. If you don't know how to install a .cab file on your H/PC or PSPC, you should probably download the complete archive for your platform.
NOTE: DO NOT PAY FOR OUR PRODUCTS unless you have already gotten them working on your computer. All of our software is shareware, which means that you should "try before you buy." Free trial versions are available in the Download Now section of this page.
SameGame is $10 shareware for NOS 2.0, Pilot, and Windows CE. SameGame for NOS 1.x is freeware (until we update it to match the NOS 2.x version).

The following are known bugs in this version, which should be fixed in our next release.
- The CE version responds slowly on devices with large (640x480) screens. In a future version, we will add support for a smaller window (rather than just taking up the entire screen), which will alleviate this problem.
Version 1.02 for CE (Released 10/20/1999):
- Added color and support for H/PC Pro models.
- Final release candidate. Initially available for NOS 2.x and Palm Pilot. Later available for Windows CE as well.
