Friday Freebie

A tool for PSP for nothing, and some mobile games for even less

Wahey, it's Friday again (seems like ages since the last one – Ed) and that can mean just one thing – it's time for us to send some pocket gaming freebies your way.

1. Free PSP video converter
Struggling to fill your PSP with enough video content to keep you entertained in-flight? Then maybe the PSP Video 9 can help you out.

Developed by smart student Sajeeth Cherian, PSP Video 9 enables you to easily convert regular PC video files (avi, mpeg, and so on) into PSP video files, as well as helping you copy the PSP video files between your PC and PSP.

What's more, if you combine the tool with Sajeeth's other innovation, Videora, you can download, convert and copy video to your PSP automatically using BitTorrent and RSS technology.

Obviously you should only use this with video that isn't copyright protected, and downloading full length movies or TV shows to save yourself the cost of a UMD is just plain wrong.

2. Free mobile games and demos from Orange Pixel
Here at Pocket Gamer we occasionally like to turn our attention away from the big boys of mobile gaming and point out some of the smaller developers and publishers that might otherwise pass us all by.

One of these is Dutch developer Orange Pixel, who is carving out a niche in the creation of simple but sweet gaming snacks. Whilst we might not have absolutely adored Thumb-It in our review, prospects for Mechanics appear somewhat brighter (look out for our review next week).

Anyway, you can draw your own conclusions by trying out either game via clicking the links above, or heading across from its home page, www.orangepixel.net.

And if those demos aren't enough for you, you can enjoy the full charms of Orange Pixel's earlier creations Rocket Boy and Dynamo Kid II via the ad-funded free game channel GameJump.
