Graphics (Kevin Khoo) - If you like high-performance cars,
you'll want this scheme with subtle shading to take advantage
of 16-bit color.

this scheme that looks like hieroglyphs on sandstone agains a

Install a Tolkein wizard on your Pocket PC with this new graphic
set with a wintery color scheme.

an NBA great, Kevin Garnett.
Karnick) - On the other hand, if when you hear the word "Arena"
you don't think of gladiators but of hooked sticks and ice skates,
this is the scheme for you.

old game. The title screen shoots you into orbit, and the professional-quality

table. No cartoony decals either, just solid colors painted through stencils onto smooth-sanded pinewood,
