My mian phone is off being fixed so im using my back up, an N-Gage

Been playing a few games on it and the problem with a lot is the screen orientation, games like Pandemonium and Sonic are hard to play due to it.
Memory cards and supposed to be hit and miss and it only takes up to 1gig
Still theres Java games and some of them are fun

Other than that it seems to be a kinda conversation piece as a few people have herd about it but never used one

Any games on it worth my time?

Both the Pathway To Glory games were very good, and Snakes is worthwhile if you can still get hold of it. Other than that, I heard good things about Pocket Kingdom.

I always enjoyed playing Tony Hawk and Tomb Raider on it, both of which are nice ports of the PSX versions which aren't heavily affected by the odd screen ratio/orientation.

There is a pretty good version of Puzzle Bobble for the device as well which I *ahem* acquired when I used to own one other than that I mostly used it as an emulation device

Sonic is awful on it! :(

I used to enjoy playing Monkey ball

and of course there's the Picodrive Megadrive emulator. http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum/sh ... hp?t=23356

& fairly decent Gameboy Colour & Sepctrum emulators too (their names escape me)

Its not that hard to do.

Going for a complete collection of sealed games seems easy and pointless as well

That reminds me I have some promo games for the n-gage but no n-gage itself.

Think they are as follows.

FIFA
Glitterati
Colin McRae

Colin McRae plays pretty well from what I remember and glitterati was quite a fun top down racer.

Vboy is an excellent Gameboy Colour emulator on the N-Gage. It works a treat and more importantly, as the GBC screen resolution is less than the N-Gage the games fit without dropping any pixels. There's even a bit of room left over for border pictures. Everything looks razor sharp and in my experience plays smoothly.

As for exclusive titles my favourite is The Sims Bustin Out. It's the same as the GBA version except in this one you can obtain a mobile phone and a few simple, working games to play on it. Very clever.

The X-Men Legends games were pretty good, as was Ghost Recon Predator (at the time).
