J2ME Games

The other day at work we had an interesting meeting/demo about mobile phone software development. This reminded me of when I wrote a game for mobile phones on the j2me platform. It was a fun puzzler where you had to swap gems around on a board to make a line of 3.
It's a very simple concept but it was highly addictive. I remember Amanda got quite addicted to it whilst I was writing it. The good ol days :-) It is available on nokia series 60 based phones from
For the geekier readers it was a j2me java application written for the midp 2.0 platform. I coded it using Borland JBuilder. This was a common development environment to use before Eclipse was more widely used for mobile development. The whole game including graphics had to fit into a 64k jar file!!!.
It was a fun project to work on, but its a line of work that doesn't pay too well. Oh well.
To play the game you need one of the following Nokia phones:
Nokia 3230, 3250, 3620, 3650, 3660, 6260, 6600, 6620, 6670, 6680, 6681, 6682, 7610, 7650, N-Gage, N-Gage-QD, N70, N70-1, N72, N91
