Well, with games on N900 it's mainly like games on other platforms.
The best stuff costs money or is probably illegal (games played in

Ovi Store has several commercial games, some are free, some costs
money. Many have a "lite" version to trial.

Frozen Bubble is also simple and fun, a clone of Bust-A-Move/Puzzle Bobble.
