PIPs enables Quake on Nokia N95

Published by at

User ohinkka has posted about a port of the classic shoot 'em up, Quake, to S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 phones (Nokia N95, Nokia 6120, Nokia 6110). You will need an original Quake datafile along with the ported application engine (full details are in the forum thread). Of interest to developers is the fact that the port uses Symbian's PIPS libraries and the source code is also available.

Here is a YouTube video showing Quake running on the Nokia N95:
