Game enthusiasts get N-Gaged

Millions of game enthusiasts across the globe are expected to compete in the annual Nokia Game 2003 tournament, which commences tomorrow.

The 10-day interactive multimedia game competition will be played in 35 countries and 10 languages. The selected game for 2003 centres around assisting the game’s protagonist Flo –- an 18 year-old ‘mobile jockey’ and snow boarder-- defeat the evil AnyOne Clan.

The Nokia 2003 game includes a series of challenges, turn-based role games and arcade-style action.

Challenges are accessible online or through the Nokia N-Gage or 3650 mobile phone handsets. A series of specialised challenges have been created for gamers who already have these handsets.

Participants will play to win a Nokia N-Gage mobile game deck, a combination mobile phone/games deck featuring a built-in 3D graphics processor, FM radio, digital music player and mobile Internet access.

Nokia said that it drew in more than 1 million players for its Nokia Game competition last year. The company said it expected better numbers this year because of new game features.

These include allowing players to compete against each other using Bluetooth wireless technology. Gamers are also able to SMS other players to share tips and message the game’s protagonist, Flo.

Although solo competition is possible, players are encouraged to take advantage of worldwide mobile gaming by recruiting a team of up to five players to help Flo overcome the AnyOne Clan.

According to Pekka Rantala, Vice President, Marketing Services, Nokia Mobile Phones, “Competitors receive points for their speed and dexterity through time trials and problem solving, but will also be rewarded by connecting with other players and employing a multi-player team strategy.”

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
