Quake 3 Arena on the Nokia N900 (including Multiplayer mode)

Quake 3 arenaAfter a little break, here I am and this post is due to the Maemo Summit 2009 which I talk about later on some posts. The Maemo Summit 2009 bring us the fists apps, in this case, the already famous game Quake 3 Arena.

The game runs very smoothly as expected because of the powerful processor of the Nokia N900 and this game already ran very good in elder Nokia’s phone such as the N95 which they are a little less powerful. It´s shown over the TV-Out function and the interesting thing is the controls. These are over accelerometer, the movement controls such as jump, left, right, forward and back. Then trough the touch screen you have the auto aim and aim control, and the proximity sensor to fire. The auto aim says the creator is because this is a very an alpha version. Probably we would see some improvements in the near future.

Up to the first video, that is all. However, on the other video embedded on this post you would see on just a few seconds length, playing the Quake 3 Arena in Multiplayer Mode.

May be this is not the best app for the Nokia N900, but this is a trace. We still have to wait to see more interesting apps but this waiting time is getting shorter.
