BROAD AND SPECIFIC AREAS OR TOPICS OF INVESTIGATION
Games are an integral part of all societies. Like work and relationships, they are an expression of some basic part of the human nature. Games are formalized expressions of play which allow people to go beyond immediate imagination and direct physical activity. Games capture the ideas and behaviors of people at one period of time and carry that through time to their descendants.
Mobile games can be broadly defined as embedded, downloaded, or networked games conducted in handheld devices such as mobile phones, portable consoles, and PDAs. The key element of this concept is portability: all games in portable devices can be thought of as mobile games without regard to wireless functions. Therefore, this concept expands mobile games by including video games in portable consoles and embedded games in general portable devices such as PDAs, calculators, and dictionaries. As most game devices have been adopted with wireless networking functions, this definition becomes more powerful in game markets.
Crossword puzzles can be an amusing but also a challenging hobby. The basic assumption in these puzzles is rectangular arrangements of boxes. Some of these boxes are black and others are prepared to take single letters. Each word in the grid is enclosed in black boxes or the outside. Optionally there may be rectangular regions left blank inside the puzzle.
A game is an activity engaged in for diversion or amusement. It is a procedure or strategy for gaining an end. A physical or mental activity or a contest that has rules and that people do for pleasure.
Mobile games are games designed for mobile devices, such as smart phones, feature phones, pocket PCs, personal digital assistants (PDA), tablet PCs and portable media players. Mobile games range from basic (like Snake on older Nokia phones) to sophisticated (3D and augmented reality games).Today’s mobile phones - particularly smart phones - have a wide range of connectivity features, including infrared, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 3G. These technologies facilitate wireless multiplayer games with two or more players.
A Blackberry smartphone has a ton of uses and applications that make the phone fun and engaging. Applications, commonly called apps, are one of the more popular features of a Blackberry. Designers create applications designed for both business and personal use. Most mobile devices have limited system resources, mobile game features are not as rich as games designed for PCs or gaming consoles.
Advanced mobile games usually require fast central processing units (CPU), dedicated graphics processing units (GPU), large random access memory (RAM) and high-resolution display screens. Most developers use a royalty-free, cross-platform application programming device known as OpenGL ES to write games with 2D or 3D graphics. Because of this, the proponents decided to develop a simple but interesting game for Blackberry mobile.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
A Game is structured playing. It is usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool. Games are usually carried out from art which is more often an expression of aesthetic elements. Games generally involve mental or physical stimulation, and often both. Many games help develop practical skills, serve as a form of exercise, or otherwise perform an educational or psychological role.
