I first apologise for the long break from blogging. Yes, the last quarter has been busy as an evangelist at Nokia. Recently out of my love for Flash, I re-skinned one of my old keypad games and published it to the Ovi Store. It’s currently available for Free – limited period.
Word Hunt is a keypad version of my own popular game, Happy Sun. Happy Sun made enormous amounts of downloads on the Ovi Store. The game is basically jumbling letters to make meaningful words. You can also request for clues.
My latest Flash Lite game HAPPY SUN is out on the Ovi store. Its available for all touch phones including the S60 5th edition and Nokia S^3 phones. You can download it for free from the Ovi store. Here are some screenshots of the game … Its a very exciting word game and created after working closely with Mellisdesigns.
I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Nokiadevs.com last week. You can now read it here.
In this post, I talk about my journey as a Flash Lite developer and developing on Nokia handsets. I also talk on my Flash Lite game Deep Days and some apps I created using Ovi AppWizard. Hope you like it.
Breakdesign who have had a successful run of producing Flash games on the Ovi store, have now released 10pm.
Needless to say, this game is also Barking Seed enabled, meaning you can submit scores to the online community; play for your nation and other cool features. I had a talk with Stefan Wessels, the co-founder of Breakdesign, who said – ” The game is different when played between 10pm in the night and 6am in the morning.”
Sounds exciting, as I havent played time- polymorphic games before.
