The Nokia N900 is powered by a ARM Cortex-A8 processor and has OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration support . Till now we have seen the Bounce Demo and Quake 3 Arena on this Maemo Powered device which demonstrate the capabilities of this device. But here is a surprise from IndiaGames with Home Run Baseball for the Maemo Platform. We have an exclusive preview of the game for all you Maemo fans !
Watch the video of the game after the cut
The game has 3 modes 10 Out Rule , Pass N Play and Rapidfire.In 10 Out rule you are expected to go on a Home run hitting spree.
The Pass N Play works like a 2 player game where player 1 and Player 2 take turns to smash the ball into the crowds.
In Rapidfire an automatic ball pitcher bombards you with balls in quick succession.You how to face 10 pitches in 20 seconds,oh man ! that was tough.
Controls are very simple. Just the screen – touch and swipe. No Keyboard advanced controls. You can play the game without opening the slider.The game uses the Ice 3D engine which has been developed by Indiagames to be used as a common rendering engine across various platforms such as iPhone , Maemo , Android , Symbian etc.
This is not a full fledged baseball game but Home Run Baseball. You can surely kill sometime in the Subway.The game should be available for download on the Nokia OVI Store for Maemo which is expected to go live sometime this month. We expect the game to be free for download atleast initially .
Would be cool if Maemo got the T20 cricket game also ! What do you think about this game ?
