S NAP Mobile kicked off the Multiplayer game Competition at the Develop Conference & Expo, a European event for gaming professionals.

SNAP Mobile intends to use the competition to attract developers to build games on the SNAP mobile platform, which works on compatible Java-based phones regardless of manufacturer. Developers can submit game concepts from 1 to 30 August 2007 by sending a e-mail to Nokia. The multiplayer contest is one category within the larger Mobile Rules! competition sponsored by Nokia.

The winners of a previous SNAP Mobile multiplayer competition held in cooperation with SingTel were announced at GDC 2007. One of the winners, Keiji Fujita, Senior Producer of Taito branded mobile games for Square Enix stated, "Winning the SingTel Multiplayer Game Quest Competition allowed us to get Puzzle Bobble: Mobile Mania (also known as Bust-A-Move: Mobile Mania in the United States) in front of millions of eyeballs in a very short time frame. SNAP Mobile supported us in our development efforts from concept to launch. I look forward to the additional challenge of the Mobile Rules! Multiplayer Competition."
