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?
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.
