The Application of Design Patterns to Develop Games for Mobile Devices using Java 2 Micro Edition

By: J. Narsoo, M. S. Sunhaloo, R. Thomas

Abstract

Recently, the mobile gaming industry has experienced a tremendous growth. As a result, development of new games may lead to recurring similar design problems. Thus, design patterns can be used to optimize the design and implementation of games for mobile devices [5]. For example, design patterns can provide facilities for creating a new board in a board game, for varying the board dimensions, for maintaining and saving the game state, for computing the next move, for rendering the display screen and for managing record stores.
