3D Gaming Coming to the Palm Very Soon
3DAGames is about to release the first of a line of 3D games for all Palm and compatible machines. The first product is called 3D Star Fighter Pilot, which is virtually finished, and is currently just passing through final testing. The plan is to have it on sale by Thanksgiving. Pricing is not yet available.
3D Star Fighter Pilot has 31 playing levels and five difficulty levels. There are twenty different type of enemies that are controlled by an AI, which adapts their behavior to the player's actions.
The real time, full 3D engine technology has been made possible by writing much of the core engine in machine code. A company spokesperson said, "It has achieved a level of performance that many people did not believe was possible on a Palm."
The 3D engine supports all Palm or compatible machines with Palm OS 3.0 or above, in three standard display formats, including full color, grey scale, and the old black and white only machines. The engine can even do real time light sourcing and all particle effects on the old black and white only machines.
