hello all, i just got this HUAWEI U8100 from WIND w/
You get the vast majority of games and apps from the Android Market. The problem with low resolution screens like on your phone however is that developers have to specifically say that their game works on low resolution screens. Some developers don't do this and thus you wont see the whole market on your phone.
To do a little shameless self promotion I'm happy to tell you that my game Hamster Climb works on small screen phones and is available for free on the market.
HAHAHAHAAA!!! Very funny dude! You got soul!
and @ Zouljier:
Warm welcome to the forums!
If you are trying to resize pixel resolutions for various apps then try here perhaps? :

Hmm, i forgot to mention this important info though...
You CANNOT resize the resolution of commercialy bought software games. Sadly because even if you do buy the game, it means you have looked at the code.... sorry dude but you can't do this. Only open source games can you do this.
Let me know how it goes buddy.
Whats so funny?
I don't think the OP asked for how to program for android or change others code tbh.
Anyway. When the developer make the program they have to test it for small screens and say in a "config file" when they build the program that it works for this screen size and that pixel density etc. Standard is only "normal" sized screens so for those you're out of luck.
Any program that is not compatible with your phone wont be visible in the market (wrong screen size, no trackball, no keyboard, etc...). It will tho, in my experience, install and maybe even work great if you download the apk separately from somewhere. This is the good/bad thing with the built in market filtering.
No dude, don't get me wrong i wasn't insulting ya buddy! just thought
it was cool to see you promote ur app!
Inja probleem - Svenska (at least i think it is hahaha)
Sorry. Didn't want to sound rude or anything. As a small developer you gotta take every chance at publicity. Can't afford loads of add campaigns when you're a poor physics student living on loaned money. xD
Very good! xD That's very close and is pronounced almost like correct Swedish. It's supposed to be "Inga problem".
No worries dude! it's all gud. I shud be more precise myself when i speak. I am not always on target when i open my mouth hahaha lol
You must teach me some Svenska!! PLZZZZZZZZZ!! If you want to buddy... up to you entirely
I can speak:
Svenska (little bit sadly)
English (home language)
Afrikaans (it is a type of Dutch)
And not that much else sadly
Et / een / 1
Trou / 2
Dry / (i think this is three but don't know how to spell 100% correctly)
I want to suggest to Zouljer, a couple of games: Grave digger and Elemental Galaxy. They run on low resolution devices and on the market there's a lite version of both.
Also, as baskus, I want to do a little self promotion: I developed a game, SkyBoards Puzzle - Lite versione (and I want to thank again Stinky Stinky for the test!), it's free and runs on 320 x 240 devices!
ty for all the replys, i've looked deep into your replys and studyed up on alot of stuff, ty again for all your help!
it's a java game, you need java emulator.
you can also try this online tool to convert java games to android games.
Get APK: Convert java game to android game
you need jad generator tool to create .jar file to .jad.

I thought I'd do another shameless self plug for my app: http://androidforums.com/android-games/213636-agent-shoot-targets-shooter-android-market.html
It works on 340x240 screens, but give the demo a try (the demo will keep you entertained for a long time) and see if it works with the processor on that phone (It should, because it works on the HTC Wildfire which has about the same hardware).
