What is a mobile game? A mobile game according to Wikipedia is a video game played on a mobile phone, smartphone, or PDA, handheld computer or portable media player, and does not include games played on handheld video game systems such as PlayStation or Nintendo DS.
Facts: The very first game to be played on a mobile phone was Snake. (1997--Nokia). Games are played with each individual phone’s technologies. Today Tetris and Solitare are two of the most popular games. Today game graphics on cell phone games are about equivalent to a 4th or 5th generation game console.
Games can be downloaded onto the phone by Bluetooth connection, or by memory card.
History & Industry When camera phones started coming out in the market phones were beginning to develop with “higher quality graphics”. These newer graphics allowed phones to have better games installed in them. Companies were now beginning to make profit from the game additions. According to Wikipedia “Total global revenues from mobile games were estimated at $2,600 million in 2005 by Informa Telecoms and Media.
Platforms and Limitations Platforms or game technologies allow games to develop and run (be used). Java is the most commonly used game platform. Although Java is the most commonly used game platform for higher quality game usage, platforms such as; Windows Mobile, Adobe’s Flash Lite, DoJa, or iPhone OS must be used. Games are usually purchased by network carriers or operator portals. The games sold and purchased require licenses.
Multiplayer Mobile Games Multiplayer Games according to Wikipedia is defined as a re-branding of a multiplayer game for the PC or Console. A few examples of what multiplayer games can be played through are; Bluetooth, Wireless LAN, or Wi-Fi. –Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a “wireless protocol” (protocol: format, or how exchanged and used) –Wireless LAN/Wi-Fi: Used for home connection
Distribution Games can be circulated (or purchased and received) in 4 different ways: 1. Over the air- usually through Java (received on mobile device by the wireless carrier network the phone is with) 2. Sideloaded- game received this way when connected to a computer with a USB cord and can receive this way by using a Bluetooth connection 3. Pre-Installed- the game is already installed into the phone prior to purchasing it 4.
