GameloftGameloft has announced to focus more on Touch Screen devices the coming time. The company prepared the first 15 mobile games, and eventually the whole portfolio will follow.

At the Mobile World Congress, Gameloft is showing of the first series of 15 mobile games that are enabled for use on touch screen devices. Gameloft has announced that the company wants to enable their complete portfolio for such devices as they become more popular under consumers. The best example is the iPhone which managed to acquire a big percentage of the market and has no buttons at all.

“The hype for 2008 will focus on the emergence of these new handsets and Gameloft has already gotten a head start,” said Michel Guillemot, President and CEO of Gameloft. “This is a new step in terms of development, one that leads us to rethink how we approach our game controls so that players can interact directly with the screen and get a greater gaming experience. Touch screen games are perfect examples of how modern technology can advance the gaming industry.”

Gameloft already has more than 15 touch screen games in its catalogue, including Block Breaker Deluxe, Brain Challenge and Brain Challenge 2, Bubble Bash, Platinum Solitaire, Chessmaster, Miami Nights: Single in the City, Paris Hilton’s Diamond Quest, Catchphrase, Deal or No Deal, Shrek the Third, Real Football: Manager Edition, and CSI Miami. These games were developed for the first touch screen mobile phones available on the market, including the LG Viewty, LG KS20, the HTC touch screen line, and the Samsung SGH-F700.
