Just popped up in the Nokia Ovi Store are two new, free ZingMagic games, both based in the same genre. 'Alpha WordSearch' and 'Starts with WordSearch' are free to play, with no restrictions, I've included some screenshots below. There are also a batch of six new themed, bigger Word Searches, available as commercial titles. Details below.
What would be really great is if someone got off their backside and coded a S60v5 version of the popular game found on pub quizmachines called "WordUp". Someone's already done it for the iPhone and it would be a great game for my N97. It's essentially Boggle with a shuffle function!
Currently Apple are leading the way on the games front which is *shocking* given how far ahead my N95 was only a year or so ago...
in terms of games/ software nokia is slow in their development, compared to apple. the approach is similar to games console production; here's the hardware, now make something good from it. writers have worked on the iphone and there's loads of stuff, like you would with a console, maturing over a year or so. with nokia, here's a load of new phones (which they plan to replace in 6 month time) that have the latest software. these might be worth investing in for a few years before they get superseded in a few years, but otherwis leave behind.
