New Game and Graphics SDK Ported to the Palm OS
GapiDraw, a well known graphics SDK for Pocket PC, has been updated to support Palm OS devices. The release could bring a large library of quality games to the Palm OS.
Over 140 games and applicationss have been developed using GapiDraw so far, including games like Fire Power: Onrush (pictured) from ManaiSoft, EverQuest 3 & Tower Mogul.
The GapiDraw SDK works with desktop PCs, smartphones and handhelds using the same code base. The programming library enables developers to write once and compile for any supported device or platform. GapiDraw's move to support the Palm Powered devices should result in more quality games being ported to the Palm OS.
GapiDraw is individually optimized for each system platform, providing features such as hardware blitter support, surfaces with variable transparency, bitmapped fonts, rotozoom, real-time tint and colorization effects, and much more.
The Palm release of GapiDraw requires Palm OS 5 and above and supports full-screen 320x480 applications and is written in native ARM code and ARM assembler.
