Angry Birds Lite
Angry Birds has been around for some time on the Nokia N900, as well as other platforms such as the Apple iPhone. It’s now made an appearance on Symbian ^3, and it’s truly addictive. Control is through the touchscreen, where you can pull back your angry bird and catapult him in whatever direction you require. Brilliant! We just hope there are more levels soon.

Need For Speed Shift Symbian
Need For Speed is one of the new generation of games to appear for the Nokia N8, and graphically it’s better than anything we’ve seen to date. Cars are incredibly well rendered, and the horizon approaches smoothly and without dropped frames. You steer the car by tilting the Nokia N8, tapping the display to slow down, and it works really well.

Galaxy on Fire
Flying a spaceship at thousands of miles an hour, going round planets and chasing enemy craft, Galaxy on Fire is an enthralling game, helped by the immersive control method. Just don’t play it in public, or you’ll look a bit strange – tilting, concentrating and spinning round like a loony!

Granted, Bioshock is also available on other versions of Symbian, but it’s worth including here as it’s an incredibly game, and difficult to believe that it’s made the transition from PC to mobile phone. You play a survivor of a plane crash – Jack – and you have to help him escape an underwater utopia gone wrong. Compelling, addictive and utterly excellent.
