IN-FUSIO TEAMS WITH NATIVE TO DELIVER WORLD’S FIRST MOBILE GAME ENGINE WITH FLASH™-BASED CAPABILITIES
- Games-console style gaming takes one step closer to the mobile handset -
IN-FUSIO, a leading mobile games service provider, today announced it will integrate a new vector graphic engine, capable of replaying Flash™ animations, into a forthcoming release of its ExEn (Execution Engine) mobile games engine. Created by Native Technologies, this vector graphic software will be used for the first time in a mobile gaming environment, bringing enhanced, scripted graphics to mobile gamers.
Native’s Flash-based animation technology is dedicated to the mobile environment, ensuring animation is suited to the memory constraints of a typical handset. Frame rates can reach 15 frames per seconds, based on a highly-optimised rendering run-time engine. Using the technology, ExEn® powered games will benefit from vector animation, preview animations, smooth rotations and automatic image sizing depending on the handset being used.
“Overcoming the technical limitations of a typical handset to deliver console-like games is a huge challenge for the mobile entertainment market, and one of IN-FUSIO’s key objectives,” explains Thomas Landspurg, CTO of IN-FUSIO. “Integration of Native’s technology will bring a new dimension to games by displaying unprecedented graphical animation and takes us one step closer to our goal. We have always been one step ahead in terms of mobile entertainment innovation, this technology will push this lead even further.”
IN-FUSIO’s solution allows games to be downloaded from an operator and played ‘off-line’ on the handset using ExEn, which is embedded within the phone’s memory. With download times taking no more than three minutes, mobile gamers are no longer at the mercy of WAP-based technology and intermittent transfer-rates.
Native’s solution allows current 2G and 2.5G handsets to display fast animations with low memory and processor footprints. The run-time engine has been wholly designed to fit slow processor's constraints, and can not only be used as a platform for mobile games but also as a standard format for the next generation of mobile messaging solutions.
