What is an .BLZ file?

.BLZ is N-Gage Mobile Video Game File

Video game container file that stores a game developed by N-Gage, a game distribution service for Nokia mobile phones; contains all packaged data for the game; may be installed after transferring the file to the phone with the Nokia PC Suite software.

Once BLZ files have been transferred to the mobile phone, they may be installed using the BLZ Installer application, which can be uploaded and installed on a Nokia phone. BLZ files may also be extracted on your PC using the BLZ Extractor utility.

N-Gage games are also distributed using the .N-GAGE file extension.

NOTE: BLZ files are sometimes uploaded to other Symbian OS-based mobile devices to play games. However, this process is unofficial and is not supported by Nokia.
