A freeware arcade game for EPOC & Symbian OS

The Smuggers are elephant mutants.

Smuggers is a full-featured freeware arcade game in a world of mazes, elephant monsters and spiders.

Smuggers dates back from 2001 and it is now in version 2.00. It is written in OPL language and runs on EPOC OS R3-5 (Psion Series 5, GeoFox One, Oregon Osaris, Psion Series 5mx, Ericsson MC218, Psion Revo/Revo+, Diamond Mako, Psion Series 7 and netBook) and Symbian OS v6-7 with Series 80 (Nokia Communicator 9210, 9210i, 9290, 9500, 9300 and 9300i).

Smuggers is a fast paced and addictive game. You are in a world of  50 challenging mazes, with 4 enemies, the Smuggers elephant mutants, and a strange spider.

Try to escape from the Smuggers elephant monsters walking and jumping in many different mazes. You can lose jumps while touching the Spider, but after eating almost all of the points of the maze, the Spider will start blinking. Then you will have 10 seconds to catch the Spider and pass to another level and maze. Are you skilful enough ?The full cast of Smuggers.

    Smuggers is here, there & everywhere : from past to the future
    There were/are other (small) reviews in many sites and in many languages, just search for "Smuggers" on Google to check it ;-)

    I have lost the total numbers, but there were at least 20,000 downloads until the end of 2004, and a not so large number of registered users from all continents. Considering that Smuggers v1.00 was released only in January 2002, i.e., 4 years after the launch of Psion Series 5 and 3 years after Psion Series 5MX & Revo, these download statistics seem good for me. The Nokia 92xx version of Smuggers was also released somewhat late, 1.5 years after the Nokia 9210 (market) launch. Now that the Nokia 9500/9300(i) version of Smuggers is released, it is 2 years after the Nokia 9500 launch.

    There were/are some reasons for these delays : the Psion/Nokia machines were expensive for me when I was student (I bought in 2000 a Psion Siena 1MB instead of a Psion EPOC machine), in Brazil sometimes there is a 6-12 month delay for market launch, delays in the release of OPL for Nokia 9xxx, I have not spare time to program in OPL as a hobby, etc. The Smuggers registrations have helped to buy newer machines and develop Smuggers for new devices, so I thank all registered users of Smuggers.

    But now Smuggers v2.00 is freeware, available for Nokia 9500/9300(i), I have a Psion Revo+ and a Nokia 9500 to develop Smuggers, so I hope the current and future versions can be played and enjoyed a lot by the Psion and Symbian Series 80 users.

    Adolfo Bittencout is a Brazilian artist and he made the art drawings of Smuggers. He continues to remember me to make a 3D version of Smuggers (but it is almost impossible to do it with OPL...) as he wants to create 3D models of the Smuggers cast :-)
    Here is a large sample of his art drawings for Smuggers, all made in the beginning of 2002. I have used some of them in t-shirts ! The Smuggers elephants are mutants indeed !
