With this game, reminiscent of the epic Lemmings game, you take command of a bunch of small monkeys and attempt to help them reach the exit. If you think is through and act precisely and carefully, your actions will have serious consequences and you may even have to sacrifice one of your precious monkeys in order to save the rest.

It is up to you to help order your monkeys to dig, build and even climb the ceilings in an attempt to dodge the many traps that are laden in your world – navigate your way past the dangers and reach the level exits. If you want to succeed you will require the use of all your wits and a bit of intelligence along with a whole load of strategical thinking.

This game is absolutely excellent and addictive to the points where you can call it digital crack. You will have the game with you wherever you go, playable on the way to work, college or whatever – when you have your Nokia N8 with you, you also have a games library that will never cease to bore you.

Catan the Seafarers

This download comes with the basic game and even includes the new expansion, The Seafarers. It puts your fingertips in to gear anywhere and anytime. As with the original, up to four players can fight for the most settlements, the longest road and the largest army. You can play up to 16 different, diverse scenarios – keeping you glued to your screens for many hours at a time.

The aim of the game is to compete to gain victory points on the small island of Catan – founding various settlements, buildings roads and even establishing cities. Each hexagon has a number representing the dice roll required to create the required resource (brick, wool, wheat, and ore) that is stored on that particular tile (hexagon).

With the expansion included, you can even explore and harvest various islands and even build shipping lanes to connect each other to the main island.

Once you have the basics figured out, the campaign mode picks up about teaching more tactics and complicated tactics. Consisting of 16 different missions, you will be itrodcued to a new setup or problem that requires you to overcome it – such as having one resource that has bad numbers, or increasing the reward of the exploration.

This game is seemingly addictive, so if you download it let us know how you get on and whether you think it’s worth the money investing into it.

Minesweeper Touch

This game is just like the game you know and love on the PC, but on your Nokia N8 – so you can take it wherever you want and play it wherever you are. The aim of the game is to clear the minefield without detonating the mines. Minesweeper Touch for the Nokia N8 has three modes: 10, 15 or 20 mines in the minefield. You have to flag and clear the mines by pressing on a square.

The player will be presented with a grid of undistinguished squares and some randomly selected squares, unknown to the player, are designated to have mines within them. If the player ever clicks on a square that is occupied by a mine, the player will lose the game. If you click on a square and numbers are displayed, this means there are x number of mines surrounding that particular square. By using logic, you can use the information available to you to clear the board without exploding any mines.

This game is a strategic tower defence game that is set in the Wild West, you take up a smart, strategic position and lie down and wait at the canyon to ambush your enemies, stagecoaches and the gold train.

You’re put in a Wild West game with charismatic villains, so you’re walking in the boots of a cowboy of Billy the Kid, Jesse James, or even Butch Cassidy to become a real low-down bad guy. You can form your own gang and recruit new cowboys, weird Mexicans and brave Indians. There are in-game ads that are provided by inneractive and requires an internet connection and can be quite annoying (sadly).

If your victims look as though they are going to escape, you simply set off in pursuit to stop them from alerting the almighty Sheriff. Once you’ve done enough to get a few dollars, you will be able to get your hands on cannons and even steam trains fitted with Gattling guns to absolutely destroy your victims.

Mancala Touch

Mancala is a classic family board game for Nokia N8 for one or two players. The main objective in this game is to capture more stones than your opponent, leaving the opponent without any legal moves or get your own side empty before your opponent does.

This game is known as a “count-and-capture” game, which solely describes the type of game-play. Mancala games in general play a role in many African and some Asian societies, which I suppose you can compare to chess in the West, or with the game called Go, which is widely played in Eastern Asia.

Having already played the game, it’s quite a fun and addictive game, but there are better strategy games out there. Though, after all, you can hardly complain as the game comes totally free of charge. Get your hands on it today and let us know what you think.
