Videos: Assassins Creed HD demoed on Nokia N8 (available at Ovi Store – 168MB!)

December 30, 2010 6 comments

Here are some blurry video demoes of assassins creed demoed on the Nokia N8 by chavero115, cyberdri and Camb078.

The first two are very, very blurry but the third by Camb078 from 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.

Video: Spider-Man: Total Mayhem on Nokia N8

December 26, 2010 4 comments

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?

November 23, 2010 1 comment

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

November 13, 2010 2 comments

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)

Video: Nokia N8 Gaming – Guitar Rock Tour 2 HD and GT Racing: Motor Academy HD (Nokia Ad)

October 28, 2010 10 comments

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.

Asphalt 5

Video: Angry Birds on the Nokia N8, iPhone 4 and Nexus One

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.

September 24, 2010 16 comments

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. 🙂

Intel and Nokia’s MeeGo OS available for the Nokia N900.

March 31, 2010 6 comments

The Much awaited MeeGo seems to be available for the Nokia N900 (and Atom/Moorestown based devices).

Today is the culmination of a huge effort by the worldwide Nokia and Intel teams to share the MeeGo operating system code with the open source community. This is the latest step in the full merger of Maemo and Moblin, and we are happy to open the repositories and move the ongoing development work into the open – as we set out to do from the beginning.

What are we opening? The MeeGo distribution infrastructure and the operating system base from the Linux kernel to the OS infrastructure up to the middleware layer. The MeeGo architecture is based on a common core across the different usage models, such as netbooks, handheld, in-vehicle, and connected TV. The MeeGo common core includes the various key subsystems including the core operating system libraries, the comms and telephony services, internet and social networking services, visual services, media services, data management, device services, and personal services. More on this will be described on over the next few days.

The downloaded images will boot from a USB stick or directly flashed on the device from your Linux PC, but since the MeeGo User Experiences for the usage models mentioned previously are not yet included in today’s MeeGo core, these images will boot into terminal.

After Day 1, the rest will follow soon – in the next few days, we will post the next steps leading to the first release of MeeGo in May.

NOTE: You will need some considerable expertise to carry out installation it’s extremely likely you will BREAK your N900 otherwise. Do this at your own risk.

Update: From

it has no gui and is command only like xterm hence why it is for devolopers and not end users

please dont expect a finished fancy ui as it isnt there from what ive read

This might still be in the middle of flashing or this is it. Hence for developers only. Fingers crossed that, a consumer friendly version will be the May release.

Is this a sign that N900 should get official MeeGo support?

If you aren’t a risk taker, there’s the official PR 1.2 firmware that’s coming real soon that’s gonna refresh the N900 up a bit.

According to Jussi

“…PR1.2 to my N900 and gotta say the computer feels again like new…make sure to update it when it comes”

So. Where to Get MeeGo?

MeeGo Repositories and Images

The available MeeGo repositories now include the operating system base from the Linux kernel to the OS infrastructure up to the middleware layer. The downloadable images available now will boot from a CD or from a USB stick, but since the MeeGo User Experiences for the usage models are not yet included in today’s MeeGo core, these images will boot into terminal.

Maemo Arena have instructions should you want to try MeeGo on your N900.

Video: Theme Hospital for Nokia N900 Maemo 5 with CorsixTH! (Beta2) Ah, Beautiful memories!

March 26, 2010 5 comments

I’m probably showing my age now, but I loved Theme Hospital as a kid! (Though I think I got into it quite late as I owned a platinum disk version).

Hospital management, building clinics, dealing with patients and staff, and of course that soothing 80s elevator music. Haha.

You might have seen the first videos of N900 playing Theme Hospital Back  in December.

Now, a Beta 2 version has surfaced with quite a few improvements.

update: WE’RE STILL WAITING FOR THE PORT TO N900. This is not played on N900 yet but maybe what we’ll get when it is finally ported for N900. (kudos waleyboy)

“After three months of development since the previous release, we are proud to present CorsixTH beta 2. The aim of this release is to give a report of our progress and attract more players and (hopefully) contributors to the project. Since beta 1, a great number of new features and improvements were implemented. Generally, playability has been vastly improved by implementing more elements of the original game that were still missing in the previous release.”

See for downloads and further details.

As computers evolve, we risk losing some classic games. Bullfrog’s Theme Hospital, published in 1997, is a classic simulation game, but getting it to run natively on modern operating systems is getting progressively harder.

This project aims to reimplement the game engine of Theme Hospital, and be able to load the original game data files. This means that you will need a purchased copy of Theme Hospital, or a copy of the demo, in order to use CorsixTH. After most of the original engine has been reimplemented in open source code, the project will serve as a base from which extensions and improvements to the original game can be made.

Video: N900 3D Roller Coaster Rush Jurassic

February 18, 2010 2 comments

On Monday, we had a sneak peak at some games coming soon the the Ovi Store for the N900, one being a really cool 3D Roller Coaster Game.

Here’s another look at it in action:

It’s a stunning game, and looks even better through TV out. Now that’s how to play accelerometer based games as then you can really move the N900 about as a controller.
