GroMobile 1.3 released
Braid Art Labs has released GroMobile 1.3, an update to its 3D desktop Gizmo player. GroMobile 1.3 comes with four Gizmos -- miniature games based on strategy and imagination featuring 3D graphics that hover above the Mac OS X desktop -- included, and the GroMobile website offers numerous other mini games available for download. The update includes refined physics, enhanced sound/scoring options, and 3D slider controls that track movements of the mouse. GroMobile 1.3 is available for free, requiring Mac OS X 10.4 or later or Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
Further updates to the Gizmo player include three new Gizmos, and contextual menu access to online Gizmo instructions and tips. The software offers high-quality "Prime-Definition" rendering, real-time high accuracy physics, shadow casting, and scalable 3D geometry that users can rotate as well as reposition.
GroMobile also features fully anti-aliased transparency masks, and enables users to play via the mouse and/or keyboard.
