NFO Pad (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2164) is my preferred option for this -- it can double as a capable Notepad replacement, too...

There's also iNFekt "Super Compact Version!"

iNFekt version 0.9.6 is slightly lighter (uses less RAM) than previous version 0.9.5, good job.

http://www.pokerth.net/download.html offers a ZIP package, is the game natively portable?

mrpink on 2012-01-10 13:59

No, it writes to AppData. It doesn't seem to write anything at the registry
