THE PORTAL OF NEWS RELEATED TO NOKIA
A game for Symbian and MeeGo called Word Tiles – an equivalent to Words with Friends. Scrabble if you will.
Nokia really has had a bad time since management last year basically said stop developing for the platform. It left a huge vacuum in developer mind share which I must admit I and a few others have exploited since. Nokia apps have actually helped me, my wife and two year old daughter to travel the world for the last six months . Coming from Australia we’ve spent time in the USA and Europe. I’ve become a digital nomad.
As long as Symbian/N9 users keep using their phones I will keep supporting them.
The future for Fumbo (my label) will no longer be exclusively on Symbian but employing more HTML5 technologies as it evolves for mobile devices. This won’t mean Nokia users lose out though as there’s good support nok Meego and even Symbian for these technologies.
Microsoft Studios has officially announced that the Xbox Live version of Wordament launches on April 25. The game prematurely appeared on the Marketplace’s list of Xbox Live games last week, but was not Live-enabled.
The game-play involves trying to find as many words as possible from a field of 16 letters, all within a time limit. The hook? You’re competing against hundreds of others in real-time over the Internet.
Visually it’s quite plain, but the multiplayer/leaderboard aspect is compelling.
