The first two are very, very blurry but the third by Camb078 from blog-n8.fr is a little clearer.
You can get this from gameloft OR the easier route from Ovi Store. My bills have increased as it’s just too easy to purchase stuff from there :p. You WILL need to download this via WiFi as it is HUUGE! 168MB, much bigger than Avatar.
It’s priced at 3GBP or som how 3EUR. Apparently some of you are seeing these priced at 2.5CAD. Hmm…I’d like some price unity.
It supports multitouch controls and is in full 3D.
A few days ago we saw that Spider-Man: Total Mayhem was available for Symbian^3 devices like the Nokia N8.
However, with no video demo, I wasn’t sure what it actually looked like given the small download size stated from Gameloft’s site. However those sizes were similar with other hugely entertaining and visually blessed games, like Avatar.
I hoped it would be like the iOS version and you’ll be pleased to hear it is, as is multitouch (which isn’t always guaranteed – e.g. SIMS 3 and Galaxy on Fire). Some of you also addressed concerns on whether it’s good enough for your money? What do you reckon?
stevechippy demoes some Antix Games running on the MeeGo platform. Antix is a gaming engine that allows games to run on any device that has the Antix Game Player installed. As you can see we have Polarbit’s Raging Thunder on the WeTab MeeGo tablet and a MeeGo set top box which are both racing multiplayer style over WiFi. Other games installed at the time include Move it, Drift Away and Zoo Cube but the only other game in the video seen this time is first person shooter, Polarbit’sToon Warz.
Video:10 minute S^3 casual game demos on Nokia N8 – Cannon Ball, Miluegg Jump, The Roach Game and Down The Fly 2
Here’s a 10 minute medley demo video of some casual games for Symbian^3 by FUNCASTorg (I think some are/have S60 5th versions, like Roach game).
- Cannon Ball
- Miluegg Jump (free at Ovi Store)
- Roach Game
- Down The Fly 2
It’s a great demo video as you’re given a run through of what you need to do for each game and general opinions for each game and the game play. It’s in 720p HD so it’s worth upping the res (if that’s not your default) to see the games better)
Nokia’s been churning out some N8 Gaming videos. Here’s a new one (for me) which is Guitar Rock Tour 2 HD. As you’ll see in the video, it has support for multitouch.
This is available to download from the Ovi Store for 3GBP (or similar equivalent where available in other countries)
Similarly, there’s Guitar Hero 5 available for S40/touch and type (well it works on the X3/C3). Not sure if it’s compatible with S60 5th.
GT Racing: Motor Academy HD – frame rate looks very fast.
Here’s a look at the three versions of Angry Birds on the Nokia N8, iPhone 4, and Nexus One
Basically all versions are excellent. The android and N8 versions are beta and lite versions so dont have all the levels yet – the N8 (symbian ^3) version will add levels via in app purchase i believe. Making it more expensive than the current 59p iOS version. Though i believe in app purchase for new levels and mighty eagle will be coming to the iOS version too, which now supports game centre.

Video: Avatar on the Nokia N8 with multitasking of Asphalt 5, GT Racing and Hero of Sparta over HDMI.
Very quickly, here’s the famous Blue Cats in Space, AVATAR game demoed on the Nokia N8. But Asphalt 5, GT Racing and finally Hero of Sparta are also demoed, and with the latter still with the other 3 games chugging in the background.. As mentioned by several product managers, C7, E7 and C6 will all be capable of reproducing the same game playback. I.E. if N8 can do it, all the other S^3 handsets can do it. Though having that big 4″ display and some keyboard controls may give you a little bit of an edge over say, the C6. I dunno – maybe. 🙂
