Nokia promotes Game Battle
Nokia announced the ConnectCoder, N-Gage Mobile Game Deck Game Battle 2003, a competition for game developers across Europe, the United States and Canada to find the hottest game ideas that take advantage of the unique mobile online functionality of the Nokia N-Gage game deck. Helping to unleash the creative and innovative spirit of the game community, the competition runs until 31st January 2004.

The winning ideas will be those that develop original games that create a connected gaming experience, where mobility is a central part of the game. Other key criteria include high-quality graphics, exciting characters, engaging storylines and interactive gameplay that highlight the social aspects of mobile gaming. The Nokia N-Gage Publishing Team will judge entries and winners will be notified in early 2004 by email.

"Given the unique features of the Nokia N-Gage, we expect people to submit some amazing ideas that really take advantage of the Bluetooth wireless technology and GPRS connectivity, as well as the community spirit of the N-Gage Arena," said Ilkka Raiskinen, Senior Vice President, Entertainment and Media, Nokia Mobile Phones. "The Nokia N-Gage is poised to become the mobile online gaming platform and the Game Battle competition gives developers a chance to get involved in creating a new generation of exciting games."

In addition to EUR 30,000 to be divided between the top three entries, the winners will be invited to the Game Developers
Conference 2004 and to present their winning ideas to the Nokia N-Gage Publishing management team.

The games can be created and tested by using the tools and emulators provided by Forum Nokia free of charge, from the Nokia Developer Forum.
