Abstract

A system (10) and method for executing an interactive software application such as a game. The invention enables a game developed on one platform to be ported to another incompatible platform without recompilation or modification while the performance of the game is not reduced on porting. The system has a game application (11) that defines model objects; an engine (13) that generates and stores model objects (14); and a hardware module (15) that retrieves the model objects and executes corresponding hardware methods. The engine does not make a sequence of procedure calls to the hardware module. An abstraction layer (17) provides synchronous communication between the hardware module and the game application and further provides synchronous communication between the engine and the hardware module.
