Game and App Review

-----------------------------------------------
-- Game / App Review --
-----------------------------------------------
Hello and welcome to the largest compiled list of games/applications for the Pocket PC on PPCgeeks.com. I am working to upload as many games/applications as I can to make it easy for PPC users to download games/applications for their phones.

I got sick of searching the forums for every program I wanted. Yes, I could find them but I wanted a thread I could go to and find every game/app I would need for my phone. So I decided to do it myself!

Please do not discuss the games/applications in this thread! If you want to talk about them - please create a new forum or search for a forum that already discusses the game/application. We are trying to keep this thread as low-clutter as possible!

If you have a good recommendation that is not showing up on my list of games/apps then Private Message it to me and I will get it up and reviewed!


---------------------------------------
News / Thread Updates
---------------------------------------


Update: I have now included links to the page number the game is reviewed at to make it easier to find specific games!

Update: I have included brief descriptions of each program on the front page for easier navigation. I have also listed if the program/application is free for those who are looking for a quick list of free downloads.

Kind of like breakout - a sweet game but I don't think it would be worth the $7.

-- Dope Wars --
-----------------------------------------------
Price: FREE
Click Here to Download EXE (Install From PC)
Click Here to Download CAB (Install from Phone)


Dope Wars for the PPC - nostalgic memories of my calculator games days brings me to have great fun buying and selling drugs using my cell phone. I became a millionaire (close to billionaire) then I looked up and got hit by reality. MMM, best free download you will ever do!

One of my favorite parts of this game is the customization you can do. You can add new drugs to the list, you can rename drugs, do whatever you want! Awesome.

FREE VERSION:



The free version of frogger is the one that I have tried. Clunky graphics, not the best quality but a great and fun game to play.

PAY VERSION:

Price: $14.99
No Known Trial Version


Never played this, about the same as the above version with better graphics.
