Your Wednesday Reviews: MicroPinball Casino and Color Master
Published by Steve Litchfield at 10:58 UTC, September 8th 2010
Botond.FM's 'instant' games have a definite appeal for quick gaming sessions. This is the latest incarnation of MicroPinball Casino, for S60 5th Edition phones, now with 'multitouch' even on resistive-screened devices - no, really. Here's my review of MicroPinball, tested on both the Nokia 5530 and the Samsung i8910, over on our Ovi Gaming site. Also posted this morning is my review of the free Color Master, which you'll know better under its classic board game title of 'Mastermind'. Hey, there goes your afternoon's productivity!

Platforms: General, S60 3rd Edition, N-Gage, S60 5th Edition, Symbian^3
From Symbian^3 and onwards multiple touch events are delivered, when multi touching a capacitive display. This should also work for J2ME programs, and not just native Symbian apps.
The reason why the X6 and i8910 doesn't support multitouch, despite their capacitive screens, is because the OS, Symbian^1, doesn't have an event driver that supports multiple touch events.
I'm going to give this a try. I've been looking for a decent, simple game that I can just start an play on a whim if I have a few minutes to spare. Frankly I'm getting bored of Bagatelle.
Edit: Got the game this evening. It's a winner. Feels like a real pinball machine that I can keep myself entertained when I have some time to spare waiting for something.
Just bought the game based on your review and its clearly overpriced compared to the games that are considered "hits" on the symbian platform. Too bad, I really like pinball games, I don't like very much this one. I think the perfect match would be a port of "Pinball Fantasies" like the one on the iPhone... Nostalgia...
may be ....that is right!!
