Look at this, the N900 can run Palm webOS games!

I just saw the below video over on Engadget and am pretty amazed at how well the games are running. I purchased about 20 games for my Palm Pre Plus, but no longer own it and cannot use any of those games. The Engadget post shows webOS games running on the N900 and it sounds as if some enterprising developers made it work with some kind of Preenv utility. I am not sure what was done to make this happen and would love for there to be some way for us to purchase and install games on our N900 devices.

I would like to see Dungeon Hunter and H.A.W.X. on my N900. If you could play webOS games on your N900, which ones would you like to try?

Nokia N900 is just a super gadget.

While this looks like it’s more of a hack than anything else it does demonstrate that making games that work on Maemo/Meego and WebOS isn’t too difficult so I would hope that software devs making games for one of these platforms considers officially supporting the other.

Are we allowed to post links to other websites? I found more information as to how this was accomplished.

This is silly. Why would anyone want to put these games on our N900 when we have 100 Boxes, EightyOne, threeTicTac, and my personal favorite Mad fuking Bomber. Jeez…technology put to the limits here. Thanks Nokia for this $600 beauty with piece of **** applications you sold me on. And thanks to all those money making developers for spending their time on iPhone, Android, and Palm and for the Nokia community to share with us these wonderful apps where we can play tic-tac-fuking-toe on my $600 state of the art laptop in a phone. Wowsers!

Hi All,

I have sucessfully installed NFS undercover and NOVA on to my n900 using couple of tricks. If anyone need any stesp or guide on installation, please do mail me @ sendtokumars@gmail.com

Always happy to help you people, lets make n900 the bets ever mobile hardware ever made ;)

Note: For me n900 is a complete packed hardware, where you can dual boot, install games which are not written specifically for n900, flash and lots of lots of things…
