Global Race : Show the E90 Muscle !

Not a fresh news, but still worth to read for new E90 owner. If you like to play racing game in your phone, then Global Race is a must game to play. Global Race is a racing game designed for the Nokia E90 Communicator with innovative GPS features. Global Race is a gut-churning, tire burning racer developed for a broad range of mobile platforms and handheld devices. Race against time and your opponents in this fast paced and exhilarating coin-op style racing game. This game allows you to control over some of the most extreme muscle cars in the world, on a variety of tracks set in different beautifully realized environments.

Global Race is a mobile implementation of Gamelion's global racing community. The community offers many exciting features for racing fans, including track editor and other tools for user-generated content, web games and multiplayer between web and mobile.

Since the E90 supports "3D Graphics HW Accelerator" (hardware) and "JSR 184 Mobile 3D Graphics API" (Java runtime), it most likely means that all 3D graphics in this game is rendered in hardware. So it should be fast. The game runs smooth and very fast, but what i noticed is that the E90 is getting quite warm while running it. This is probably normal due to intensive procesor use ...

The game is written in Java but it works really nicely. The games course run flawlesly also on the cover of the phone and will switch to internal on opening the cover without any problems at all , switch is fast and without a problem .

You can be downloaded directly from the E90, using the "Download" application, or download to you PC HERE

This game is specifically for E90, but it works on the N95 and other S60 v3.0 phone. You can use Nokia SU-8W Bluetooth keyboard as wireless gamepad for this awesome game... and really works great with N95 with the TV out...
