Summer may seem a long way off just yet but with The Ashes firmly home once again, you can relive the action with ‘Cricket T20 Fever’. This game brings the world class 20-20 cricket game between top international teams from around the world together for a little of leather on willow. You can play in a variety of modes including tournaments, ODIs, T20 Matches and even the Powerplay style match.
Unless you’ve got the most generous of contracts, we suggest downloading this heavy weight game via Wi-Fi. It’s well worth it as you get to play Altaïr, the Master Assassin as he sets out on a series of quests in this full 3D historical environments of the Crusade’s Middle East. It’s the closest we’ve seen to the console version, so well worth the entry fee.
We love Spiderman nearly as much as we love the Nokia N8, so bringing them together is a given. Our favourite web-slinger is out to save New York from a breakout at Rykers Island. With endless crazies running loose, spider-senses will be jangling and spider-nerves shredded as you fight to prevent a deadly virus from being released onto the city.
This is another hefty download so best to use the Wi-Fi option on your Nokia N8. You are David Crenshaw and you work with ARTEMIS, a private military company. Your objective is to rid the world of dangerous terrorists. In the game you get to pilot one of the most powerful jet fighters in production to complete your mission. Dodge your enemies or destroy them with your missiles and discover levels where your flying skills are put to the test.
Fancy slowing things down a little and looking at a property market on your Nokia N8 that never suffers from a financial meltdown? Monopoly is the game of our youth transposed on to Symbian^3 in glorious HD quality. This is the original game will all the old favourite place names. The only change is that the game introduces its own Monopoly money, so passing go and getting £200 is quite as exciting!
Type: Card & Casino
We have to admit that Uno may well be one of the world’s most famous card games but we’ve never heard of it! Still, that hasn’t stopped us from checking it out. You can play online in multiplayer mode using Wi-Fi to battle and beat your friends, or play solo for a more slower paced level of fun.
