This paper examines the implementation and efficacy of impostor-based techniques on smallscreen devices, and compares their effectiveness with that of the same techniques when used on desktop computers. Firstly, a real-time computer game has been implemented on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), featuring animated humans in a virtual city. Secondly?in order to examine the potential of impostors on future, more advanced small screen devices? psychophysical experiments were conducted. The results suggest that just as for PC-based systems, impostors are a useful technique for crowd and urban simulation on handheld devices.
