Best Pocket PC games?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I didn't really know the best place to ask this, because even though there's a smartphone games forum I'm asking specifically about Pocket PC. Mods feel free to move if you deem it so :-)

What are the best games available for the Pocket PC? I'm due to take delivery of an SPV M3100 today or tomorrow, so I'll want to put some decent games onto it. I know Toki Tori is a decent game and played it on my C600, so I may buy that. What are the best emulators? Do any games allow the use of the slide-out keyboard? What about Doom for example?

Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on your taste in gaming...

The Myst port works pretty well if you're into classic puzzle/adventures.

SPBAirislands is worth buying for the three mini games even if the main game is only okay.

PMG2 is a good mini-golf game

Anything recently released by Astraware is a good start they have released some cracking titles over the last few years just make sure they are WM5 compatable.

Another place to look is the MoDaCo Fair Deal software store as there are some good prices for the software and the developer also gets more in return.

How on earth have we had two replies and nobody has mentioned WORMS yet?!? Do you people have no souls?!?!?!

Ahem..... I think that translates as "Worms can be quite a pleasant way to pass the time"

Thanks for the replies guys. I've bought PMG2 after playing the demo (awesome game) and I'm looking into buying Worms once I try it also - really enjoyed WWP on the PC.

Just hope my microsd card turns up today else i'll be running out of space. It'd also be nice if Orange UK could sort out my phone number - migrated from Orange payg to contract and I've been waiting ever since to have my number re-enabled on my contract sim (even though they've quite happily chopped my payg sim).

Thanks again :-)

Did you tap on the little monkey on the bottom of the screen to change orientation?

If you try to manually change screen orientation you may get these alignment problems.
