Multiplayer games have become very popular in the PC market. Almost none of the current games are shipped without some support for multiplayer gaming. At the same time mobile devices are becoming more powerful and popularity of games on these platforms increases. However, there are almost no games that support multiplayer gaming despite the multiple options of these devices to connect with each other and build mobile ad hoc networks. Reasons for this lack of multiplayer support are the high diversity of mobile devices as well as the different protocols and their properties that these devices support. With “SmartBlaster” we developed a multiplayer game for several different platforms that is using several different channels (Bluetooth, IrDa, 802.11 and other networks supporting TCP/IP) to communicate between them.
