UPX is an executable compressor.
The official version works on many platforms, but not on ARM. Well, that's
not quite true. It's possible to compile and to run it on ARM except you
can't generate a compressed linux/ARM exec.
Well, I added the missing pieces and now it's working. Whoohoo! It's not
perfect and the stubs could lose some more weight. Even with the
ARM stubs uClibc compiled, they are still quite a bit larger than
their x86 counterparts (1.5K vs 10K). Therefore small execs will see
My changes are on top of 1.24. I've included the prebuild arm stubs.
Everything is there to build them yourself, but building a gcc/uClibc
toolchain is not for everyone... (BTW, I used gcc 3.2.2)
Puckman was bundled with Critical Mass for a while, but I seperated the two.
Puckman is a Pacman type game. The basic idea is simple: you (yellow dot)
run around a maze and collect points (blue dots), while badies (red
crosses) try to get you. Eating a power-point (green dot) will allow
you to eat the badies for a short period of time.

I was playing around with the pipes screensaver and found it too
rectangular... After much tweaking there were no more pipes, just
one long colourful worm. It can be quite mesmerizing seeing the
worm grow into a ball of wormyness.
