Vasara Games (http://www.fathammer.com/vasaragames/index.shtml) has finally released GeoPod (http://www.fathammer.com/games/geopod.shtml), a arcade racing game similar to Wipeout. The game utilizes Fathammers (http://www.fathammer.com/) X-Forge™ 3D game engine, and it has two player mode via bluetooth.

From developers site:

In 2002, geometry turns mobile.

In the year 2048, racing tracks and cars became history. A technology called Geopod was developed. It allowed the construction of tracks that defy geometry and produce groovy sounds. Now, special hover crafts racing on these fast and funky surfaces are bound to your mobile phone!

Geopod brings the sense of speed into mobile gaming – it is a fast and furious racing game with unprecedented 3D graphics. It is your task to take the helm of a hover craft and compete against opponents on rollercoaster-like race tracks. In the career mode, you engage in a quest to become the Geopod champion.

Gaz,

Simply put, because itis not your application to decide how to distribute. Sure I disagree with not having a SIS available, but it's not my choice, or your choice. It is the developers of Geopod, and you should ask them to host it on their site.
