Lack of Good games on the Windows Mobile platform
I bought an iPhone recently, so I have been keeping up with the news over in iPhone land. The game developer seems to love the platform. Having seen some of the amazing games that are released for the iphone plus preview of some new games that are soon going to come out, I cant help but wonder why one of the powerful mobile OS is being ignored for game development.
Some of the games on the iPhone that i was referring to were : Ironfist Boxing, Metal Gear Solid Touch, Dance Dance Revolution S Lite, Silent Hill The Escape. That’s not all, we get games like Tap Tap Revenge, Space Deadbeef, etc for FREE.
There used to be an excuse with lack of Accelerometer, Large Screen and Accelerated Graphics but with the new device running windows Mobile this is not the case anymore. Windows Mobile seems be a dying breed in the Mobile Gaming Industry, hopefully with the release of WM6.5 and 7 in the near future & the introduction of the SkyMarket App store things might change.
Lets try and list some good games for Windows Mobile to keep us happy till then.
Orions: Legend of Wizards and Expansion Pack (http://www.pocketmoregames.com)
and a lot of Card and board games -_- ( try Pocket Uno its free )
