Magmic games are first class. Terrific graphics and enjoyable game play. Cribbage is particularly fun. However, they are slow to start, and they use up a TON of memory. They also don't clean up after themselves -- i.e., memory consumption is ridiculous, and you usually need to reset the device after playing a couple of games.

Most of the color games have been updated recently to use less download space but also to start up quicker. But agreed, there's still some improvement we can do...

You can upgrade your games the same way you originally download them,
like over-the-air at bb.magmic.com or through your PC's desktop by downloading the zip file:

Default Magmic Hearts and Cribbage

Great games, great customer service. I've been dying for them to update Hearts so that the game state is saved once you leave the game to check your e-mail, but they said that they need more than one request, unfortunately. Oh well. I still enjoy Cribbage quite a bit.

lej, you can do that by holding the ALT (moon) and then hitting Esc (side button). That allows you to multitask on your Blackberry, keep your game running in the background.
