Minimal Yahtzee: Go for a small straight! (cliche)

Minimal Yahtzee is a very tiny version of the popular game "Yahtzee." It's actually a really good program, despite having "minimal" in its name.

-Very small: Not including the high score file, it is 86kb (and it's portable), which is amazing, considering how nice it looks.

-Looks nice: (deja vu?) It's very simple, but at the same time, everything is very clean and looks nice. It even fades between pages and everything. However...

-CPU consumption: For somethin so small, it sure does eat up a heck of alot of CPU (for its size). I guess because it has Open GL, or Flash, or something...don't ask me...but I do know that it may not be the best for wanting to do Yahtzee and then some other program that requires a vast amount of CPU.

-Sound: Ok, the sound does kinda suck...but considering I always played it on a computer with the volume muted, I never really noticed that much. But it might get annoying, considering the fact that you can't mute it....

Otherwise, it's just a really nice game. If you're saying "Eh...." and considering if you want to download it, I'd say give it a go, and then if you don't like it, delete it. It may not be the most delicate Yahtzee out there, but it is smaller and lighter than Yahtzee123, and it's actually pretty fun to try to beat your old scores (or other people's).
