In the dentist’s office, when standing in line at the supermarket, or just to kill some time in a boring meeting, mobile games come to the rescue.
Do you remember Snake on those old cellphones? Well, to be honest, the default mobile games never got much better. Now we often find Bejeweled spin-offs and Frogger fakes.
There’s a whole different story with Windows Mobile phone games. Because it’s almost like a tiny computer, there are a ton of gaming possibilities. Add that touchscreen, and let the games come in.
Standard free Windows Mobile games are still mediocre, but downloading additional ones is hardly a hassle. Today we’ll present you ten fun games for your Windows Mobile.
Sudoku is a free Windows Mobile game that should be present on all mobile phones. Although it’s possible on a standard keypad, things become infinitely more fun when using a touchscreen.
Skinz Sudoku both looks good and is an incredible time-waster. You can play sudoku on 4 levels – easy, normal, hard and insane. The puzzles are generated on the spot, so don’t be afraid to run out. For the die-hards among us, it’s also possible to make small number annotations – almost necessary when playing hard or insane.
Tangled Bugs is an incredibly fun game. The concept has previously been pursued in a number of flash games, but it never gets old.
The goal of the game is to make sure none of the threads cross each other. You achieve this by moving around the bugs and rearranging the pattern. Don’t be fooled at first, this game gets incredibly hard – the right screenshot above is merely the fourth level.
I’m not sure if Pocket Gravity can be considered a game. It was actually more of an experiment. But it’s fun to play around with, and that’s what matters.
Pocket Gravity is a mobile physics simulator. Build free, anchored or pivotal shapes and let the laws of nature come into motion. Look at the screenshots above for some inspiration, but the real fun begins when you start making cars and muppets.
Most of you puzzlers will recognize Pipes. The objective is to make sure that all tubes are connected in a close circuit, accessing all the little blue nodes. Make sure that water can flow through your structure unhindered, and you clear the level.
Again, there are multiple difficulties; very easy, easy, normal, hard, very hard and insane. Be sure not to overestimate yourself. This game shows you why plumbers deserve their paycheck.
DoubleSkill is one of my personal favorites. It’s a combination of a brickless breakout and an unnerving balance act.
With your touchscreen, you both move the top- and tilt the lower bar. Although you have to catch the falling objects every time, you need to be very careful not to drop the lower ball. DoubleSkill is a fitting name, and high scores are a matter of long practice.
Not generally regarded as interesting for most people, Binary is a game designed for programmers. After all, you need to be able to compute binary (pun intended).
Click on the bricks to switch their value. You can make a line disappear when the Byte’s value is the same as the line number.
3210 is a very original game. Instructions were originally not included (the developer thought they’d confuse the user more than just ‘finding out’) but I’ll give it a shot.
The lower cannon shoots balls in the air. The balls bounce off the surface until they lose their momentum and stop mid-air. Hovering around, the ball will grow until it touches any other surface. By hitting them with other balls, you decrease their value. If you manage to hit them thrice, they disappear.
Score points by making as much balls disappear as possible. You die when a ball crosses, or grows back over your dotted line.
Aquella ball is another very familiar free Windows Mobile game. The objective is to ‘clear’ more than 75% of the playing field.
When striking you stylus – horizontal or vertical – a barrier slowly grows until it touches two sides of the field. Have a ball touch your growing barrier is fatal, but a finished barrier is lasting.
The goal of blackflip is to coat the whole field in a single color – black or white.
Switch colors by tracking a path over the squares. You can track back or cross your path, but doing so will wipe out all progress in between.
Hitting the screen anywhere sets off an explosion. Reaching any of the white dots will set off consequent explosions. The goal is to ignite as many of the 50 balls as you can, with that one hit.
Each game consists of three rounds, with the points adding up. How to win? Try to reach 150!
