Cabinet files or Cab for short are actually a library of compressed installation files that are copied to a user's system. Microsoft originally used these files to reduce the number of floppy disks needed to transfer files. Today, Cab files are used to reduce download time or reduce the space installation files take up for use with portable computer systems such as the Pocket PC.


The most popular puzzle game of Pyva, Lights is a small game available for free download in both .exe and .cab file extensions. The player has to connect all the lights within the circuit to turn them on. To do this, players revolve the circuits until all are connected. The game begins with simple levels, gradually becoming harder as the player progresses. In the free version, the final two levels are disabled. To enable them, the player must register the game at a cost of £3.20, payable with PayPal.


Cuby for the Pocket PC is an online game that is downloadable free in either .exe or .cab file format as a trial with the player being allowed to play three complete levels. The game puts players within a 3D maze and has two modes of play. The first is Space mode in which players use the directional keys to change the direction and the enter key to move forward. Players can move in all directions of the maze. The other mode is Plane mode, which is more traditional. Players use either the stylus or the arrow keys to move the character, but the player can move up and down through planes using the enter key.

Marble Worlds

Marble Worlds, winner of the Handster Best Software Award 2008, is 3D game available for the Pocket PC. The game puts players in control of a marble seeking to explore a series of 3D worlds while collecting gems on the way. The game includes many interactive features such as bounce pads, jet holes and air blowers designed to help or hinder the player's progress through the 10 levels. The game has two expansions; Candy Worlds and Space Station, which allow players to explore completely different worlds and face new challenges. The game is available as a Cab file download for £6.40. A free demo is available for download as well.
