Nokia had released QT 4.6 back in December a cross-platform application and UI framework which would now make it easier than ever for developers to create great applications for Symbian, Maemo, and other platforms.
Tamoggemon a company which creates apps for Palm OS and the S60 platform have created the first QT-based Symbian game named BallZ using the platform.
BallZ for Symbian is a port of the evergreen JezzBall, which has been an extremely popular, un-violent action game. Our port contains 30 colorful levels and can be played without a stylus – thanks to their innovative user interface.
Tam Hanna, Tamoggemon’s CEO, states the following:
We have always been strongly committed to Symbian as a platform. Working with Qt wasn’t always easy. Even though the development environment is fantastic, shipping apps was not possible so far.
BallZ has already been submitted to the Ovi store, and is expected to become available in the next few days. The product will cost 3 Euro. A free trial version, containing five levels, will also be provided.
