By: Fletcher Mak

The year 2006 was an amazing year for mobile gaming fanatics as the gaming industry came up with few amazing games that had a heady mix of action-adventures to puzzlers to racers to just about everything! These latest mobile phone games developed by companies like Player One, Real, Gameloft, Glu, Digital Chocolate, THQ Wireless amongst others are selling like hotcakes in the market! People used to download free Java games till few years back but nowadays Mobile Games are mainly sold through Network Carriers/Operators portals.

With Java games going out of vogue these high octane games have started tempting the gaming community to come out and enjoy thrills dished out by them! These latest mobile phone games use platforms and technologies like Windows Mobile, Palm OS, Symbian OS, Macromedia's Flash Lite, DoCoMo's DoJa, Sun's J2ME that have limited these exciting games to high end handsets only.

Few of the best games that won over people in UK are Tornado Mania, Stranded, NFS Carbon and host of other games. The original concept Tornado Mania of controlling a Tornado to wreck havoc on the city made it instant success with all of us, the slowly unfolding plot of Stranded, inspired from Channel 4's Lost, kept us all hanging on the tenterhooks of excitement unparalleled. NFS Carbon is a hardcore urban racing game with full of 'twists' and turns with steep ravines adding an extra bit of excitement for the gamer!

These are just to name a few of the mobile games who finished the year on the pinnacle but there were others like Asphalt 3: Street Rules, 2006 Real Football, Mafia Wars Yakuza, Turbo Camels: Circus Extreme were few other games that enthralled us during the year that just went by. With games like Voodoo Kart, Age of Heroes III - Orc's Retribution, America's Army: Special Operations, Rodland and many others set to invade our mobile phones, the year 2007 is looking good!
