Contestants can build on established game concepts or build new games from scratch. Contestant can be an individual or a team or a company. All games must be built with Sun's Java 2 Mobile Edition [J2ME].

"India has the richest talent pool of Java developers," sys VP, development V. Krishna Polinen in an official release. "Developing world-class games requires assembling a team that not only has the skills but has a deep passion for games. As mobile phone capacities accelerate in terms of chip speeds and memory, the promise of truly mobile entertainment becomes more viable."
