In tune with the social nature of today’s gaming industry, Nokia’s Ovi Store is making available a slew of free mobile Flash games enhanced for competitive play in a unique collaboration with Singapore-based, multiple-award winning design studio, Breakdesign.

In conjunction with the availability of the new Flash games, a series of monthly competitions will be held for four months beginning 7th of May across the South East Asia Pacific region, including Malaysia.

“As early as the 1990s, Nokia has connected people through mobile gaming with the Snake game that became a classic over time.  Providing a rich mobile gaming experience is integral alongside the most essential, communicative and organizational features of any Nokia handsets,” said Nelson Wee, Regional Services Marketing Manager, Nokia, SEAP.

Dawn of the Fly Ninjani That Roach Game

The new games lined up for the competition are That Roach Game, Ninjani, Dawn of the Fly, Dawn of the Fly 2, Monsterilla, 10 PM and Horseface.
These titles will make their way to Ovi Store progressively throughout the competition period and are exclusively available on Ovi Store only, until the competition ends in August.

That Roach Game SA, a well known flash game already today, is available on Ovi Store and is also included in the competition.

The game competition is hosted on Breakdesign’s game platform, Barking Seed at www.barkingseed.com.

Participants stand a chance to win one of the 25 prizes monthly, including the Nokia X6, the Nokia BH-216 and exclusive Barking Seed merchandise as well as other attractive prizes.

To participate in the competition:

Simply download any of the listed flash game titles from Ovi Store (http://bit.ly/dgGQPM) and start submitting scores!
More details can be found at www.barkingseed.com. Gamers can also post messages on the individual “game walls” as well as send fan mail to their favourite Breakdesign game designer from within the game.

The mobile Flash games will be supported by 29 Nokia devices, including an array of full QWERTY, touch and keypad devices.

The Search for N competition has finally came to an end. The final round took place a few hours ago when I posted up the clue that led the 10 of the finalists to The Loaf, Pavilion.

There were only SIX Nokia N97 to be given away… so the earliest six who arrived got one each… and the last 4 to arrive at the secret location got themselves a consolation prize of a Nokia goodie bag.

Here are some photos from the event just now and also a video that took me 1 hour to edit. Do watch it til the end ok? ahaha

Contestants ran towards Loaf one by one, welcomed by David, Hazel, Jo and me.

Ashleigh, Scott and Petrina arrived a few minutes right after the clue was posted up at 11am…. so fast we were not even ready to welcome them.. ahah according to them, they were at Starbucks Pavilion waiting for the post to be up and the moment they saw it, they Googled it and found the answer. Not bad…

Petrina was the 3rd to arrive cos she was running behind Scott and Ash. Hahaha

Darry… the first person to submit his email the moment the 5th clue was made live few days ago.

Ziyan and Calvin got here together… but they were and 6th and 7th to arrive… Since Calvin was in front, Ziyan was very very upset and got kinda pissed… watch the video below to see his reaction.

Alex and Christopher were two of the unlucky ones… they arrived 8th and 9th…. Alex’s upset expression was really upsetting.. ahaha Chris was happy all the way eventhough he didnt win.. thats the spirit!

The winners were then seated, and briefed about the new Nokia N97.. ordered food.. and played with their new toys while eating.

First 3 to arrive got to pick the colour of the N97 they got…. Michael here got the white one… no options.. since he was the 4th to arrive.

The event ended with a group shot… everyone was in… winners, losers *cough*, Nokia reps, and the owner of SymbianpOp, me. lol

Check out the video below!!!

Thanks Nokia and Text100 for making this happen.
