Nokia ramps up mobile gaming

It's Game Developer Conference time over in San Francisco, and Nokia's gaming platform N-Gage has a cool new feature - motion control gaming.

 

According to Symbian Guru, a new version of Bounce Boing Voyage will be the first motion control N-Gage game, so if you have a phone with an accelerometer, you can play the game simply by tilting and lifting the device.

 

The other big two gaming phones, the iPhone and T-Mobile G1, already support games that use the accelerometer, and simple games that don't require uber-dexterous button-mashing are selling in a big way at the Apple and Android app stores, so it's a pretty important step for N-Gage.

 

Bounce Boing Voyage will be available in spring 2009.
