Smile Recommend games?

Can anybody recommend some games that run a decent speed on the ascend? Or give me a link to a list of games that run well on the ascend?

Anything that's not too graphic-intense,as this phone isn't known for its gaming abilities.
Nothing wrong w/the phone,just that it's an entry-level phone.

I believe BEJEWELED 2 played OK on this (memory is a bit fuzzy on this one).
Lots of people here play WORDS w/FRIENDS & there is a way to play ANGRY BIRDS on this phone,w/mixed results.

Use the SEARCH feature at the upper-right corner of this page & you'll find a couple of threads dedicated to installing & successfully playing ANGRY BIRDS.
The given steps may work w/other games as well.

bejeweled 1 and 2 work great on my ascend....jewels deluxe, Jungle Jewels Deluxe, yahtzee, dominoes, uno, 250 Solitaire Collection, jamdat's tetris, Dangerous Luxury Liner, Midnight Bowling 2, Midnight Pool 2, Monopoly, PAC-MAN, Random Mahjong, Scrabble, Slot Machine, Solitaire Deluxe Free, and Spades are all the games I have installed on my ascend...

Since moving on from my Ascend, I've found that a lot of the games I played on it were actually going in slow motion. I didn't even know they were running slow until playing them on my Droid Incredible, and found that a lot of games were probably running at half speed!

Bottom line is, anything that's not graphically intensive should run OK on the Ascend, but anything that truly needs a GPU is going to run slow, run with low framerates, or lag.

A few games that I enjoyed on the Ascend:

Pandas VS Ninjas (good Angry Birds alternative that doesn't lag as badly, Angry Frogs is another)
Trap!
Super Tumble
Jewels Star
Mini Shot Basketball 2
Office Jerk
Tap And Furious (better than Ant Smasher if you ask me)
Toss It

Unblock Me
Abduction
Zenonia 2
Scooter Hero
Gurk
Drag Racing
Bonsai Blast
Squibble
Backgammon Free.

Bonsai Blast and Squibble are probably the best two. Having CM7 and being overclocked helps with games a little bit.

This app is honestly wonderful, it's a great way to play backgammon and chat with many others from their website gamecolony.com

Yes! Get dominoes gc and backgammon gc from your google store.

I prefer dominoes, just because I like the game more, but the same company has backgammon too. Both are good, albeit graphics are simple
