Purple Software have ported their Chess game to the UIQ platform. P800 owners now have the opportunity not only to play Chess locally on the mobile phone against multiple levels of AI, but also against remote opponents via SMS. The off-the-screen move handling is instinctively and instantly automated by Purple's sophisticated SMS synchronization manager, yet all users have to worry about is to make the right move; everything else happens automatically.
Gunnar LarsÚn, head of product management at Purple, said: "We believe our SMS synchronization manager include some of the most highly developed wireless game code ever written, something the BAFTA jury recognised earlier this year when our Chess application for the Sony Ericsson P800 was awarded Best Game in the Mobile Device category. To be able to pit your wits against friend or foe via SMS, wherever they may be in the world, adds yet another exciting dimension to smartphone gaming."
