In recent years, several enterprises have realised the potential of using
games to introduce concepts and ideas about their services and products
using games and the social media platform. This was aided by the
proliferation of mobile devices. As such, games are no longer Œchild¹s
play¹. Working adults and seniors are beginnning to play more games.
At the same time, academic research in gaming technologies has recently
witnessed a plateau in improving rendering, texture mapping, physics and
artificial intelligence. There is currently a change in focus towards the
