Tomb Raider App for your Mobile

February 21st, 2013 · No Comments



The excitement of Tomb Raider started way back in 1996, and it was clearly visible that Lara Croft was made of pixels.  Her body didn’t look too good either, with the blocky square-shaped breasts and butt. There was a lot room for improvement for her face too. However, in 1996, no other game had better graphics.

Now look at the screen shots of the 2013 Tomb Raider: Lara Croft looks just like a real person.  The graphics have now come to almost true life, with the extensive use of motion-capture technology to make gameplay feel more real life:

Moving the above towards mobile technology, graphics have improved dramatically primarily because of the immense improvement of technology.  With the first mobile game been developed in JavaScript, this limited the graphics.  Another huge factor was the speed of mobile Internet; very slow speeds hence limiting the size of the application.

However, today, we now have 4G technology, hence enabling the development of HTML5 applications.  Take a look at the latest HTML5 Tomb Raider slot from Spin Palace.
