|Mophun™ was a computing platform used to run portable code on embedded and mobile devices. It was designed by Synergenix Interactive AB (Synergenix was established in 1999, Sweden. It was acquired by Kayak Interactive on Feb 11, 2005). Mophun games are developed in the C and C++ languages using an open source SDK.|
|Developer||Synergenix Interactive AB|
Mobile Gaming Engine
|Release date||2002 (late-1999)|
Mophun (distorted by more fun) was a mobile gaming platform/engine, developed by Swedish company Synergenix Interactive AB. Its development began in late 1999, and released in 2002. The Sony Ericsson mobile phones including T300, T310 and T610, are the best known devices for running mophun. Its supports high performance downloadable C and C++ mophun games. Sony Ericsson decided to drop mophun in 2003.

- Mophun Games Launcher
- Only compatible with 13 games, all of which use the 3D engine and were released for Symbian (S60 and UIQ devices). Support 176x208, 240x320 and 352x416 resolutions.
- Does not work with games that are locked (e.g. have a predefined IMEI recognition algorithm) or do not use the 3D engine.
- Mophun Emulator
- An official emulator, taken from Mophun SDK. It was created by Synergenix Interactive AB. As such, encrypted or compressed games do not boot. However, this has been worked around, both by decrypting the files and decompressing them (except for compressed resources), and modifying the emulator to perform decryption on the fly, albeit only when opening them via the Open menu.
- An unofficial mod created by Tuxality, boots encrypted games without the need to decrypt them first by decrypting them on the fly. It can play both 2D and 3D based games, with limitations but not all 3D games, such as The Da Vinci Code 3D (except 1.0.1, other versions require vMusicInit) doesn't work, which can be fixed using a special version of the emulator, which has referred to within the community as the Hitman emulator. Neither version boots Exile due to not supporting vMusicInit in 2.5.4, and vSin in the special version. Exile is not known to work in any found version of the emulator.
- Mophun SDK
- The mophun SDK is a non-proprietary completely free toolset built with GNU tools using open standards. It was released in 2002, C based SDK specialised to game development for mobile devices and it was coming with a free license to develop games. Mophun SDK allowed creation of games for the Symbian OS platform without the burned of the complexity of Symbian OS.
- A new, open source emulator created by Luca91. It is only a proof of concept, as only a few opcodes and a couple of SDK APIs are emulated, and there is no heap. There is sprite and input support, as well as support for the collision API. It is compatible with a few small homebrews. Luca91 mentions the SDK API handler needs to be better organized.
- Mophun ActiveX Control
- The official website for the platform, mophun.com, used to host development demos playable in the browser using the ActiveX platform (crawled demo files here). The mophun plugin itself can run unencrypted .mpn files. Although it is not playable through the web archives of the site, it is expected to be curated for Flashpoint. The current demo version of Rally 3D isn't particularly perfect. As a game, it gets quite boring after a while, but as a demonstration of the possibilities of the mophun 3D engine, it is bearable. However, the quality of mophun 3D cannot be sufficiently assessed from the ActiveX demo of one game run in a web browser.
- Mophun API
- Lessphun project is an implementation of the Mophun API for Cibyl, "Lessphun is Mophun". The purpose of Lessphun is to easily be able to port old Mophun games to Cibyl/J2ME. The ultimate goal I have with Lessphun is to port my two Mophun games Lorminator dash and Bruce Lee. Lessphun is currently capable of recompiling and running the Lorminator dash game correctly, although some things work slightly differently than under Mophun (notably font handling). Lessphun will be mostly compatible with Mophun, but where compatibility is difficult it will be sacrificed. Lessphun is only meant as a transition-path from Mophun-based games, for new games use the Cibyl J2ME API or a custom Cibyl API instead, and old mophun projects
- For Mophun 2D
Mophun has some conceptual similarities to Java, like running programs in a virtual machine rather than directly on the device, so that they can become platform-independent. Since late 2002, the mophun 2D engine has been pre-installed on low-end mobiles. The much acclaimed Sony Ericsson T300 and T310 models.
Despite the API being very easy for programmers to use, Mophun has not been very popular. The main reason for this seems to be the strict approval process - the compiled program can only be run under an emulator, and Synergenix must approve the program so it can be used on a mobile device. The approved program can only be run under one IMEI number. Only developers registered and approved by Synergenix can use self-certification (and through the Synergenix server), and they are only allowed to have one IMEI number. The developer must sign a sales contract with Synergenix, which then shares and approves it for end-users, so the program can be shared. Such a process disallows free programs to be created for mophun, and also discourages many developers from developing programs for mophun. In addition, Mophun game does not need to be paid after one download (this is the same concept as ExEn), and Mophun also has a security mechanism (anti-piracy), the main game program cannot be copied from the mobile phone, only the game save and dump are provided to the computer. Mophun games are all in .mpn file format. When the file is too large, it can be divided into 30KB parts, downloaded to the mobile phone in stages, and the mobile phone will be automatically connected.
The mophun gaming platform runs on extremely limited hardware resources with minimum requirements of an 8-bit processor running on 12 MHz. Competing game technologies usually require 32-bit processors and 25 to 50 MHz. Because of the limited hardware resource requirements mophun games can run on today's existing 2G-phones. The game can be downloaded via WAP directly to the phone or to a computer and then transferred to the phone via infrared (IR) or cable.
Mophun™ platform, which was adopted as the standard for Sony Ericsson mobile phones (and is also supported by some models of siemens phones and other "smaller" brands). A platform similar to J2ME, the program openness is not as good as that of J2ME, and the types of downloads are single, but mophun games can provide game demos, and have good restrictions on piracy, and the fees are more convenient and reasonable.
Mophun has the advantage of being an open standard (free for the developer) and its programs tend to be very compact, occupying half the memory of a similar one in Java and a third of that occupied by a similar one in BREW, which has taken many companies to turn their eyes to Mophun (as it speeds up the download of games).
From a technical point of view, Mophun is superior to J2ME. Tests conducted by independent companies showed that in a device where Mophun gives 60 MIPS, J2ME shows 400 KIPS (which means 150 times slower). Synergenix also adds that on some devices, some subsystems use native code from the phone's processor rather than virtual machine code, which means speeds can reach 90% of the phone's CPU's maximum capability (for example, 90 MIPS for a 100 MIPS model when running native programs).
— In 2002: Relaunched as mophun signed embedded deal with Sony-Ericsson. Mophun embedded into T300, T610, etc and Online distribution system with DRM.
— In 2003: Embedded deal with TTPcom.
— In 2003: Shifs to become mobile game middleware for Symbian, BREW, J2ME and Windows Mobile. Synergenix mophun accelerator Supports OpenGL and mobile 3D graphics API (application programming interface) for J2ME (JSR-184). The mophun platform is optimized to work with Atsana media processors, and a set of over 150 built-in games is offered to phone developers.
— The 2D version requires about 50kB of memory and the 3D version only adds an additional 100kB to the footprint. The mophun engine on the mobile device makes sure that the games run in a secure sandboxed environment and it also contains DRM features to help prevent piracy. Most mophun programs are around 50–150 KB in size.
— The 2D versions of mophun™ enables multiplayer wireless gaming. Minigolf game that runs over the network, using a multiplayer server from Terraplay.
— For low-end phones, mophun™ provides the possibility of real-time, arcade style 2D action games that no other comparative technologies can match.
— The mophun™ API gives the games access to features like an advanced sprite and tile engine, a collision system, sound support and communication. Games can also access hardware, such as vibration, backlight and touch screens. Games for Mophun are written in assembler in C and C++ using a well-documented and open API. A special version of GCC is used to compile programs.

|Mophun 3D is the first commercially available virtual machine/game engine with complete 3D support.|
|Developer||Synergenix Interactive AB (Blaze Global)|
|Release date||18 May 2003|
Mophun 3D is a high-graphics 3D engine developed by Synergenix Interactive AB in May 18, 2003 for Symbian based handsets. It's a fast gaming system for mobile phones, pushing mobile games to new levels, enabling true real-time multiplayer gaming over mobile networks (through Bluetooth, WiFi, GPRS and Infra-red technology), as well as high performance full 3D graphics, high-quality sounds, enhanced audio and true 3D gaming features. The engine currently available for Series 60 and UIQ handsets, including the Nokia 3650, 7650, N-Gage, Sony Ericsson P800, Motorola A920 and Siemens SX-1 mobile phones and a whole range of Symbian based phones. Also available for Archos Gmini series and Windows Mobile (Pocket PC) handsets.
- 3D graphics
- Enhanced audio
- High-quality sound
- Multiplayer technology
In 2003, Synergenix Interactive AB launched, world's first mobile 3D multiplayer game for mophun 3D engine.
The 3D versions of mophun™ enables multiplayer wireless gaming capabilities over Bluetooth™, Infra-red, WLAN, GPRS, EDGE and 3G network. Many of mophun games are perfectly connected via bluetooth. In multiplayer mode, some have the ability to connect via bluetooth (for example, Carmageddon 3D, Fatal Arena, Lock 'N Load 2). Terraplay technology: Lock 'N Load 2, The new installment is the first to use Terraplay's MOVE 3.1 platform and benchmark the first-person shooter genre on mobile. Also Rally Pro Content using its Mophun 3D game engine and Terraplay Systems network technology for multiplayer functionality. Multiplayer gaming has used local connectivity technologies such as Bluetooth but Terraplay MOVE enables subscribers to connect to another handset over 2.5G and 3G networks without geographical restrictions. The mophun 3D engine featuring low memory footprint and low processing power requirements for its suite of 3D APIs, directly targeted at quickly and effectively developing mobile 3D games. The engine is designed for development of 3D mobile games that are compact and downloadable over-the-air.
Mophun 3D have backwards compatible at the binary level with all existing games for mophun and therefore theoretically it is possible to run current 2D games for the original engine in mophun 3D. While the runtime of the current mophun 2D engine can run on mobile devices with relatively slow processors (8 bits, 12 MHz), mophun 3D require significantly faster 32-bit processors with a speed of at least 16 MHz. Mophun has quickly become a popular way for mobile network operators and distributors to increase ARPU.
Mophun 3D have its own 3D API and come as a comprehensive SDK package with its own 3D graphics routines optimized for each type of mobile device. The mophun 3D API is very similar to the OpenGL-ES standard, which is again intended mainly for mobile devices. Mophun 3D directly support optimized light sources, texture mapping and shadow work for 3D graphics, as well as object collision detection and Z-buffering. Mophun 3D have its own sound interface. The Sound API directly support WAVE (WAV), ADPCM and other currently the most widely used audio formats.
The mophun™ 3D API gives the games access to features like an advanced sprite and tile engine, a collision system, sound support and communication. Games can also access hardware, such as vibration, backlight and touch screens. The 3D features include 3D math, perspective correction, material, lighting, shading, fog, collision & occlusion, texture wrapping, blending, transparency, filtering, and a number of different rendering modes. For the future trend of mobile 3D games, Synergenix also launched Mophun 3D SDK, allowing developers to develop 3D games. The 3D API is still purely software accelerated and cannot have a smooth picture like a PC.
CSL enable its customers to download advanced 3D games based on mophun technology directly to their Symbian OS based mobile phones. CSL provide Symbian OS mobile phone users with direct access to a growing supply of great 3D games based on the mophun technology. Such as Rally Pro Contest, Anarchy Boxing 3D, Joe’s Treasure Quest 3D, and Lock 'N Load series are available through CSL.
The Synergenix Vendor Signing Tool: Offers an opportunity of secure distribution and piracy control. The games can be locked to a specific device based on the IMEI number or time-limited for demo purposes or several different forms of subscription gaming. The VST can also be used to add operator specific information to games at the point of sale, such as IP addresses to your multiplayer server or your own games portal.
List of Mophun 3D supported devices
- N-Gage doesn't support pure mophun, it's symbian after all. Meant that some games (such as Worms World Party) were written in Mophun, with libraries (such as Mophun.dll) added to them.
- The GameTrac Gizmondo has traditional HW graphics accelerator, support for 3D Mophun Mobile Gaming Technology as well as the development of high-quality 2D and 3D games for use on their new Gametrac series of products.

Deep Abyss 3D Honey Cave 3D
Of the exclusives, the indisputable hit is Honey Cave 1 & 2. Deep Abyss was also famous, but its 3D remake on the Mascot Capsule 3D was more popular and interesting than original. They also tried to remake Honey Cave to 3D (Using Mascot Capsule 3D technology), but it turned out to be just a very crooked and laggy 3D platformer, now hunting for honey will take place in a fully 3D environment. The design is terrible, the backs are dull, the platforms hang in the air just like that. This time the remake is worse than the original.

Archos Gaming Service
- The AV700/AV700TV and PMA400 also works as a game console and has a built-in Mophun gaming engine. It is compatible with Mophun 2D and 3D games designed for cellphones. It comes with various Mophun demo version games designed for the terminal, some of them quite impressive 3D graphically. Dog City, Golf Pro Contest 2, Joe's Treasure Quest 3D, Lock 'N Load: Rise of War and Rows Blaster. Archos has adapted a number of existing games to the larger display. The games are 2D and graphically not very perfect. But on a couple of games like IceBox Plus and Space Box 3D, we found an abundance of colors and an isometric 3D look worthy of a Game Boy Color. This Mophun technology has already been implemented in the Archos Gmini400 and PMA400 and 15 games are currently available online from Archos while the Mophun catalog has around 150.
- Gmini 400 and Gmini 402/402CC can play both 2D and 3D games using Mophun, a gaming platform designed primarily for cellphones.
