Nokia Secret Codes or IMEI on Nokia Symbian 9

Before i show you about: Nokia Secret Codes, on Nokia Symbian 9, let me tell you some story in this article.

It seems relaxing when we are blogging and are accompanied with hot coffee milk. Yeah, that's becoming my routine activity everyday while i am thinking about new stuff to write to this blog. And that's not easy to create some good post and fresh content.

Because i created a blog about phone, where all the post at least must have synchronization with phone topic. So hot coffee milk is my best friend.

I don't know why, but when i look it, i grab it, and i push the button, my mind like spinning itself, ha..ha.

Ngage Error When Opening and Installing Games

Have you ever faced Ngage Error problem when opening and installing games? Suddenly your N-gage application wont run, and always closes itself. If you face this Ngage Error problem, then Gamelidz will help you solve this problem.

There is a few reason that your N-gage application wont run. We have experienced this, so we can identify the right reason why this could be happen.

First, You might know an application called "Font router", if you don't know about this application, let me explain to you, so you will understand. Font router is an application we can use to re-size and change our font or text on your phone. If you use Computer, you can change your font maybe to beautify your computer interface. So know we can change our phone font (it's rhyme).

Back to the problem. If we use font router than Ngage Error will appear because maybe the font wont fit or suitable with N-gage application.

So the best way to solve this Ngage Error problem is, we have to choose between font router or N-gage. I personaly would choose N-gage and sacrifice the Font router application.

Remove your Memory card, and then restart your phone, in stand by mode, put back your memory card and finally delete font router application.

So it solves the Ngage Error problem.

Metalgear Solid NGage Review

N Gage Games MetalGear Solid SolidSnake for Nokia Ngage
Game: Metalgear Solid

OS: Nokia Ngage 2.0
Publisher: Konami
Genre : Stealth action
Review: Our next review for the NGAGE 2.0 game is Metal gear solid.
Description: Help solid snake to prevent the metal gear system from being used to create mass destruction weapon by enemy!.

GRAPHIC
Firstly, i will talk about graphics from Metalgear Solid. Basicly, we will get the great aspect from this game. And that is a great texture from this games graphic, you can see how smooth the graphic is. It is very clean graphic if we zoom the wall, solid snake face texture, the movement is so great too, or even too smooth for human normal movement, maybe that is the minus point from this game, solid snake's movement. We can see from other stealth games, for comparing, Splinter cell: Chaos theory n-gage classic version (i luv this superb game), the movement of Sam fisher is so soft and heavy because that is how the human body move. Next, The framerates is superb terrific, because we cannot find the lame part from this game or error bugs, everything is so smooth. Nice!

GAMEPLAY
For gameplay, maybe Metalgear Solid gameplay uses map style or room style gameplay. Why i said that? Because in this game, we can see the whole room. MGS is not using the gameplay like SC:CT, third person shooter. And then we have the radar if we play in normal dificulty, the radar contains enemy movement radar, enemy alert alarm, and enemy arm/unarmed radar. But dont worry, if we play hard dificulty, we dont have the radar anymore, and you're on your own.
Good luck!

LEVEL
Other aspect from Metalgear Solid gameplay is, how the level is too short for mobile games standard. You may also remember other game such as, Assassin's creed HD, SC:CT, they both have a long level gameplay, and great storyline aswell. And Metalgear Solid doesn't have that aspect. Because, a lot of gamer expect more from this game when they put this game in the market. They expected more level, more storyline, more intrigue, more mission, and so on. But, they didn't get it. Maybe that is the consideration from Konami developer. And that is too shame!

SOUNDS
For sounds aspect, maybe not too special, i am not saying that this game's sounds is crappy. But it is too average. The theme song is changing depends on the game situation. It goes fast if enemy is alerted, but it goes normal and slow if they dont find anything.

OVERALL
Metalgear Solid is a cool game, but not too special. Maybe for the short mission aspect. But, it is worth to buy. Dont expect too much!

Resident Evil Degeneration N-Gage Review

N Gage Games Resident Evil Degeneration Game: Resident Evil Degeneration
OS Nokia Ngage 2.0
PUBLISHER Capcom
GENRE Horror-Third person shooter
DESCRIPTION From the famous console games and films, now we have the most horrifying zombie shooter game, Resident Evil Degeneration on N-Gage. 

REVIEW
Okay, in this article, i will start to review some of N-gage 2.0 games that are considered by Gamelidz as a worth buying games.

GRAPHIC
I think, Capcom is really serious in developing this game. You can see how well they create the atmosphere and bring the horrifying artistic into Resident Evil Degeneration. The texture is really smooth for mobile games standards. You may remember about N-Gage classic game called Splinter cell: Chaos theory (SC:CT) right? the same genre in gameplay for comparing. In Chaos Theory, you may see how rough the graphic in that game. The texture  is really lame and looks just like a 3D cartoon, although the gameplay in that game is superb and brilliant which brings the same exactly gameplay from its predecessors on consoles. But in Resident Evil Degeneration, you may feel like you really play the same exact console version of this game. The frame rate of this game is simply smooth, which is the good point for mobile game standards, great and smooth graphics.
N Gage Games Resident Evil Degeneration  
GAMEPLAY
For Resident Evil Degeneration gameplay, i think, Capcom is trying to adjust the gameplay for this mobile version with the console ones. The gameplay in this game is really simple (not like in the consoles version) and i must say this game is a little bit easy to play. It is really facile to kill all the zombies that stand in your way. You just need to point the red x-ray on your gun to the core of the zombie's head But that doesn't make this game so crappy and lame in gameplay aspect. Somehow, i just enjoy playing it, while hearing the groaning of zombies, looking at them, pointing to the head, and shooting them till they down on their knees and getting death. But it's cool!

SOUNDS
The sound in Resident Evil Degeneration is surprisingly terrific. Great theme song and creepy voice actor from groaning of zombies, clear gun shot sounds depend on what gun you choose. Superb! By the way, in this game, you can choose variety of gun types, from magnum, electric saw, shotgun, AK-47, grenade, machine gun, but it's a shame that we can't find a bazooka, because i will love to see all the zombies in one place and destroy them with a massive destruction. Nice.

STORYLINE
Storyline is great! Not boring to follow the whole story of Resident Evil Degeneration. You have to find the survivors from the plane crash and rescue them to the safe place and avoid the survivors and yourself of course, from getting bitten by the dog, ehm.. sorry, by the zombies.

OVERALL
I have to admit that this is the greatest mobile game so far, and they really set the bar high, although in graphics, i must say, other N-GAGE 2.0 games called "ONE" will win the competition. But overall, this games can kill other games on N-Gage platform. And that's really good, because other developers will finally take this business seriously and keep creating some good stuff for gaming for the long sweet future.
Once again, Fantastic!

I always mention in this blog that iPhone is a strong handheld for gaming. Right now, they prove it again that this platform is a strong gaming machine with iPhoneGames boosted Gameloft Sales in App Store . Read the rest of this articles written by Dianne See Morrison
The iPhone has once again boosted Gameloft (EPA: GFT) earnings. The French gaming firm singled out the "strong performance" of its iPhone games, as well as "solid sales" of Java and Brew games, as helping boost mobile games sales 21 percent in the first quarter. The news about Java and Brew games is especially interesting as industry sales of these games are "slowly decreasing," by Gameloft estimates. Company spokesperson Anne-Laure Descleves said that sales of the Java and Brew games, usually played on traditional feature phones, rose 6 percent compared to the same period last year. Overall, Gameloft reported sales of 30.8 million euros ($40.8 million) in the first quarter of 2009, an increase of 22 percent from the previous year. On a comparable exchange rate basis, growth in Q1 reached 18 percent.
