Development of Little Games

Every now and then it is important to make sure the computer stays a friend.
My way of ensuring this is to use the computer to play games.
One can download games from the internet or buy in shops.
However, no game is as satisfying as the one written by one-self.

A few words on the downloads, how to make it quicker, how to make it faster .... see here ....

All games are totally free!
However, in case you really like the games and would like to support me, feel free to make a donation. You can do so through PayPal

A few words on downloads

All the games are written in VB.NET and the setup always includes the following files:
InstMsiA.Exe  --  InstMsiW.Exe  --  Setup.Exe

These files make up the largest part of a Zip and do not have to be downloaded every time.

If you have already downloaded a game from here, then, chances are you already have these files
In this case, download only the shrunk-version of the game and unzip it.
Find on your computer the above mentioned files and copy them into the directory created by the unzip procedure.
If you can't find them, you can always download them here:
InstMsiA.Exe  --  InstMsiW.Exe  --  Setup.Exe

By clicking on "Setup.exe" you are then ready to go.

Remember:
This is a .NET application and in case you still haven't got the .NET-Framework loaded you better do that first.
Download dotnetfx from Microsoft.

If you are unsure about this, follow these steps to find out:
