MIDP Game Developers Can Start Playing with Nintendo Game Boys

(March 17, 2003) - aJile Systems Inc. has created the world's first game development kit to bring Java MIDP technology to millions of Nintendo's Game Boy Advance players. aJile's JAMiD game development kit is also the first platform to use Sun's latest MIDP 2.0 technology, which offers advanced audio and graphics features to Java mobile game developers.

Hundreds of Java-based MIDP game titles are already available for tens of millions of Java-enabled mobile phones sold worldwide by leading handset vendors. With aJile's new JAMiD game development kit, hundreds of thousands of Java software developers can now create multimedia mobile games that will also play on millions of Game Boy Advance and Game Boy SP players worldwide.

The key component of the JAMiD kit is the Java game cartridge, which plugs into the external card slot on any Game Boy Advance or Game Boy Advance SP. The JAMiD cartridge will allow users to run MIDP games while listening to MP3 music, both of which can be downloaded from dozens of Internet sites. The JAMiD cartridge includes aJile's aJ-100 Java microprocessor, an MP3 audio player, and all of the necessary memory and interface hardware to download and run MIDP-compatible games and MP3 audio.

aJile is also negotiating with OEMs in Asia, Europe, and North America to manufacture and merchandise consumer versions of the JAMiD game cartridge. aJile is building an online game portal, where mobile game developers from around the world can distribute their MIDP games directly to users. aJile will make it possible for game developers to offer both free and for-fee downloads to the global gaming community.

The JAMiD Development Kit is available in the first week of April, at $199 each
