Just happy I have a Treo.

hey sz if you ever feel the need you could make a non treo version and have it go through pictures......please

thats what i get for having a tx

The pictures aren't there just for effect; the game senses the motion, and that lets you control the game. So that is not possible; you would need pictures of a 3D environment anyway.

Mate - I just told palm247 to have a look at this and get the word of mouth out on it.
Just an incredible concept - I just don't have a treo.

Szymon... have you got a patent on this idea? - My bet is that it will be copied by the more powerfull camera phone / windows mobile pdas in no time at all - it is a TRULY unique game method to rival or exceed the strangeness of the Wii.

Did you get the idea from the Nokia Symbian version?
One of the guys at pda247 just pointed out this review of that software.

I really hope this takes off for you.

Only for Treo?
Z72 have camera , can use it?

I think the Zire 72s hardware is capable, but as with Video Jigsaw, some problems using the camera API have made it incompatible. Maybe if it works well enough on the Treo, Sz can make a special Zire 72 version for us.
Zoso
Thanks , Kristopher
I hope so.
But...

I Think the button control maybe have some problems
Z72s not have "Messages , Phone , R , G , B , D , S " +_+!
650 have so much button...

I hope it works for my Tungsten E2.

How would that be possible? The main feature here is control of the game through motion detected by the video camera.
Sz
as Kristopher said - Zire 72s is very close to being supported (as it is very similar to treo 650 in most aspects), but it lacks one important API function, namely i cannot disable the video preview (so it is overlaid over the game display all the time and the player cannot see what is happening).
buttons are not a problem: "phone" and "messages" are just the application buttons (zire uses different names) and the QWERTY keyboard is not really required, these keys are only used as shortcut (everything can be done using the application buttons).
too bad none of my friends have this device, i could borrow it and try to override the system restrictions
Sz
Lee - yes, i was looking for the idea how to use the newly discovered video processing capabilities of my treo (after implementing Video Jigsaw and one of my friends showed me the "Mozzies" game on his Nokia. The playability was awful (i don't know if it was because of the underperforming hardware or just badly designed game rules) but i liked the concept. so i tried to implement a similar thing for treo
Zoso
Thanks Sz
Your games had a creativity too, if ability to the PPC or the PC development should also quite good
bones
maybe i am misunderstanding your comment zoso but it is impossible to putt this on the pc
Mr.pickle.
to bad you cant put it on zire 72 because I wont get a treo for another year or so at least!
PiNerd
This would be the only thing I would be the only thing to make me keep my Zire/nuy a new of the same model. Shame it won't work. No point getting a Treo for me so I am goping to get a TX sometime.
PiNerd
OK I give in and I'm gonna get a treo.
Mr.pickle.
I downloaded this game since I have a treo now,and it ROCKS
the next game I buy will definatly be this one,unfortunatly I am broke from buying the treo (I have a bank account no longer)so I wont be able to get this game for a while but ill get it eventually.
PiNerd
I'm buying a treo 680 arctic tonight. Then I will wait a while to buy arcade reality but I can't wait - and video jigsaw will work too. Ohh goodie! I'm not gonna use it as a phone though so that Zentongal thing won't work.

In arcade reality can you record you games? That would make it for me!
