Iceblox Plus: Supported devices
Here is a list of mobile phones I've ported Iceblox Plus to, with screenshots.
The Sony Ericsson T300 is the platform the game was originally built for. I
designed everything with this screen size in mind.
The Nokia 40 series phones, such as the 7210, 6610,
6100 were next.
I had experimented a little with a 7210 emulator from Nokia's website and it seemed
relatively easy to port the game to this platform. All the building blocks and mobile
objects are identical, but I drew a bigger logo.
The recent color-display Nokia 30 series phones, like the
were slightly more awkward, as their screens were too small for the original graphics set.
I needed to re-draw everything at roughly 75% the size.
The Nokia 60 series phones like the
3650 on the other hand,
had a display size that completely dwarfed the original graphics. I decided to draw a
completely new set, 50% bigger.
The Sharp GX10 has a display size that falls somewhere between the Nokia 40 and 60 series.
It seemed appropriate to use the larger graphics set here.
The Siemens S55, as far as the display goes, is pretty much identical to the Sony Ericsson
T300. Same size, same palette. The graphics look slightly
different here because the emulator fades all colors to better mimic
an actual device. The text is a little too big, but this is the smallest one on that phone.
The Sony Ericsson T610 uses the same game engine as the T300 but has a much bigger
screen. I recycled most of the code from the original version and combined it with the
graphics from the one for the Nokia 7650.
