Social Mobile Gaming Peer – 2 – Peer and no hazzle!
What is PortaPlay? Games for Mobile Phones, which supports interaction in social networks PortaPlay develops turn-based multiplayer games for mobile phones, which uses a unique SMS-based technology.
How does it work PortaPlay develops Java (JME) program, that installs on the phone. Each program can communicate with other programs, by sending encoded data in a special SMS. The unique SMS technology permits true Peer-2-peer interaction between phones, without using game servers or relying on GPRS connection. The only thing the user needs, is the phone number of his/her friends and a phone which are able to send and receive SMS’es (no surcharge).
What does it do? Asynchronous gaming Gaming across borders Gaming between friends and relatives No handset or operator dependencies Playable even without network coverage Because PortaPlay uses the existing SMS techonology in a new fashion, the games are not dependent on location (Bluetooth/GPS games), coverage (GPRS based network games), handset performance (Flash Lite) or handset combability (e.g. Nokia vs. SE). Our games work on 90% of all European phones, across vendors, operators, countries and languages.
