I had a note in from Tam Hanna of mobile developers, Tamoggemon, to tell me they’ve launched their first ever Qt-based Symbian game. This is one to remember — the first ever Qt-based game release that I’ve been sent. I hope it’ll be one of many.
The game is called BallZ and its a port of the evergreen JezzBall non-violent action game. It contains 30 levels and thanks to the UI, can be played without a stylus. Good, because I can’t stand using a stylus on anything.
What does Tam have to say? Here we go:
“We have always been strongly committed to Symbian as a platform. Working with Qt wasn’t always easy. Even though the development environment is fantastic, shipping apps was not possible so far.”
You’re not wrong Tam.
However Qt really promises a complete change for developers — if you haven’t checked it out, have a look at qt.nokia.com for more details.
BallZ has been submitted to the Ovi Store so you should expect to see it available for 3 Euro (or equivalent) soon. Also expect to see a free 5-level trial version.
Every success to the team at Tamoggemon!
