The Samsung i600/Blackjack working games list

Recommended Posts

Right then, after having tried far too many games with dubious claims of QVGA compatibility that don't actually work properly on the i600, I'm starting a thread here specifically for native Windows Mobile Smartphone games that *do* work in QVGA landscape mode on a Samsung i600/Blackjack running WM5.

I've limited this to just native Windows Mobile Smartphone games that are advertised as WM5 QVGA compatible, so please post your contributions here and lets make this the definitive list of working QVGA landscape games for the i600/Blackjack.

I'll edit this list with new titles as and when I get round to trying them, just check the edit date below to see when the list was last updated.

Looks like the i600 doesn't have clean hardware support for midi which is why games from Konami and Capcom that have midi files don't have any sound although the games play just fine. Strange though as the same midi files work under Pocket WMP.

That's hardware limitation no. 3 that Samsung has messed up with this handset :D

  • No cell location broadcast (for Google Maps)
  • Sound emulation for Java MIDlet manages screwed up
  • Midi support screwed up (at least for games)

And don't even mention the useless proprietary non-USB connector :angry:
