It’s been a long time but finally Nokia’s gaming platform, N-gage, is available for the Nokia N97. Albeit the N97 isn’t listed on the N-Gage website you can download N-Gage by opening the ‘Software update’.
There you need to download ‘N97 C: Phone memory update’ first and than the N-Gage application. After the download and installation process are finished you can navigate to the ‘Games’ folder and start enjoying the new N-Gage application. Unfortunately, not all N-Gage games are available for the N97 but you’ll find some good games for sure. After downloading the first games I noticed that the games are not fullscreen but 4:3 ratio. Why? Fullscreen would look much better.
Update: You can download N-Gage from here as well
