Top 20 Free Games on the Nokia N900
For all the N900 users out there, here is a list that NokNok put together that I thought you might be interested in. It’s the top 20 free games for the Nokia N900, enjoy.
You can view the first Top 10 Games for the N900 they did a bit ago, here. The newest ten follow:
Tux is the mascot of the Linux community, so it comes as no surprise that he stars in his own range of open-source games. Whatâ€™s more, this is already the most popular download on the Maemo site. In SuperTux you get to play our star penguin through a serious of platform puzzlers not too dissimilar from the best a certain plumber likes to offer up.
Who said that open-source mascots didnâ€™t have a competitive edge? As in Wormux you get to commit mass murder plain and simple using your favourite free software icons. Very much in the spirit of â€˜Wormsâ€™ you get to use a host of weapons of mad destruction, including grenades, dynamite and even bazookas!
Was it really back in 1993 that PC gaming changed forever? It certainly was my friend and with PRBoom you can relive every minute of it with Doom for Maemo. This is the original demo levels that got the world hooked in the first place. Whatâ€™s more, if you have the full-blown PC version you can drop in the WAD files to unlock the whole game â€“ now whereâ€™s my boom stick?
While weâ€™re looking at old games, Transport Tycoon Deluxe is at the other end of the spectrum, forcing you to flex brain rather than brawn. OpenTTD puts you in charge of your own transport company and you have 100 years to build an infrastructure that even dear old Mr Beeching would have trouble dismantling. Getting the most from the game can be as a little fiddly but if youâ€™re into sim games itâ€™s well worth the effort.
If the roads arenâ€™t frustrating enough at the best of times, with this neat little game you can work through 12 levels of insane parking conundrums all in the hope of getting as close to the shop doors as possible.

Not so much a game but perfect for anyone whoâ€™s game for a little exercise. This free app allows you to keep track of all your sporting activities, both indoor and outside, courtesy of the Nokia N900 GPS. You can get the most from your workouts by monitoring your speed, distance and heart rate in real time. You can also use the built-in training diary feature to track your progress.
In the future, of course, all games will be in 3D and weâ€™ll wonder how we ever lived with it. N-Speed allows you to glimpse into the future as this racing game delivers a full 3D experience in a futuristic setting. It may not be the most original of games but youâ€™ll find it puts the graphics engine of the Nokia N900 to good use.

The iNES game may not have an instantly recognisable name but if we said to any gamer of a certain age â€˜Nintendo NES/Famicom emulatorâ€™ a rose-tinted haze would appear to match the anticipation of playing some of those classic old games. After all, iNES will run software written for Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Famicom video game consoles.
The Ur-Quan Masters
Fancy getting to grips with a classic old sci-fi game that may be starting to look a little creaky in interface terms but still has a game play more modern games would die for. Simply fly the galaxy meeting aliens, battling them and trying to amass a large fleet to defeat the dastardly Ur-Quan.

Getting three of more jewels in a line may not sound hard but it made a national pastime out of Bejeweled on the PC. Gweled isÂ an open-source homage to the game and the best to matching the originalâ€™s in term of looks, feel and game play. Once youâ€™ve mastered the game you can challenge others as there is also a multiplayer version available, called Battle Gweled.
