kirson,

>>"Mark: do you think there is a BB API at work here? The reason I ask is that I have found the Magmic graphics to be equally impressive, and I didn't think those were BB specific."

They may or may not be BB specific, that is a question I'm curious about. It would be good to document the programming techniques since there are probably going to be more programmers making more videogames for the Blackberry in the future, and it would be good to know the techniques (like using partial repaints instead of full repaints; minimizing slow OS calls, etc, whatever techniques are used to keep the framerate high for videogame animations)
