We are releasing our new 3D mobile game Powerboat Challenge™ somewhat earlier than planned. Starting today, you can get the game for your mobile phone from our website without download fees. Then it’s time to select one of the zany characters with a cool racing boat, and off to the starting line for the first race! Of course, performance will also depend on what sort of mobile phone you are using to play Powerboat Challenge™.
Graphics options also in 3D mobile games
Depending on the performance of the various end devices, mobile games run at differing speeds or in varying quality. In Powerboat Challenge™, the choice is yours. We have taken the quality right to the absolute limit of what is possible for Java mobile games (Java is the programming language that is used for most mobile games). If the game doesn’t run fast enough for you on your mobile phone, you can turn various effects on or off by choosing Options from the main menu and then Graphics. You may be already familiar with this from PC games.
Sufficient performance for 3D mobile games?
Some mobile phones are almost able to match PCs in terms of computing performance. The Nokia N95, for example, has a 3D-chip that allows 3D mobile games to run very well. But for racing games, what matters is high computing power for calculating the 3D physics. This is necessary, for example, to simulate realistic handling of the racing boats. If you have one of the state-of-the-art Sony Ericsson phones, like the K800i, then you are well-equipped. More than just the 3D graphics run very smoothly on those. They also have enough computing power not to lose their oomph even in races against three other boats. Then you can enjoy your Powerboat Challenge™ with all of the water, light, and wave effects.
One final tip: on some mobile phones, Powerboat Challenge™ runs a bit faster if the sound is turned off. So 3D mobile games aren’t quite up to PCs (yet), but you can’t stick a PC in your pocket
