n-gage. I’ve a bit of a love / hate with n-gage, it’s core idea of a ps network/xbox live style delivery of games is sound. But the implimentation leaves alot to be desired, also nokia phones just dont ‘play’ games well, the d-pads are unresponsive, keys in funny places etc, and resistive screens are useless for gaming. also the whole DRM implimentation is terrible, lose your phone and get a replacement and you lose the games - no downloading tied to your gaming account.
So its here on N97 / S60 5th edition. What we get is a touch version of the n-gage application - though it seems to be very unresponsive and I had to resort to navigating by the d-pad to get it to work. The when you get into the games it’s just back to the d-pad / mystery guess the keys combo - as none of the games have touch interfaces.
Some of the games are nice - but after having played on iPod touch for the last 6 months it all feels very very dated and expensive.
