HD Video: Stunning 3D Gaming on N900 – Bounce Evolution – The Scenic Route

| December 5, 2009 | Reply

Graphics wise, whatever glitzy eye candy game you can show off on the iPhone, the N900 can do it too [and possibly look better if games will utilise the 800x480 screen of the N900 vs the Paltry 320x480 of the iPhone).

Bounce Evolution was the first 3D game shown on the N900 and everyone was stunned at how good it looked (and it's on a Nokia!). I loved Bounce on my 7210 - kept me busy for ages - I'd never have thought that it would ever look as good as this.

In this post, I take a scenic route of Bounce Evolution (as in normal sessions it only lasts about a minute) to check out the scenery, and detail, such as:

  • Reflections in the water
  • Waterfall
  • Leaves
  • Rocky edges
  • The sky
  • The fireplace and candle at the end house

I even come across some random spot that Bounce gets trapped in....he manages to bounce in the water for a while and then drowns.


For comparison, here’s ‘normal’ speeds. The accelerometer is really sensitive – if I bump into things, that’s when I look away to see if the N900 is in frame. It’ s even better when played in person


Finally, here’s the System Rush Evolution cross, where Bounce races across a track against the clock. Again, accelerometer great, I hit the sides due to checking if the N900 is still in the video.


If only the N97 could do this – it had the perfect form factor for gaming.

More 3D games for N900 please ^_^

    You want 3D game for N900?
    I am in progress of exactly that, i am now doing the 3D models and landscape.
    However i would require that the MonoXNA project gets finished to at all begin the coding.
    However, i will use the C# version of OGRE and XNA Game Studio for development.
    I hope to atleast get to a Beta by next summer.
    And the name of the game?
    Legend of Zelda – Orbs of Darkness
    Whereas it will be Link, Zelda and such characters and races.
    What you think of this?
