List of Games for Nookcolor

[ Edited ]

Thought I would share since I haven't seen any other threads about this. These are games that fully work on the nookcolor. Just load them in the nook's web browser.  Most are best played in landscape view.

 

 

Yes I know: it's an ereader, blah blah. Meant for reading, blah blah.

 

 

I do not read 24/7 and like to do other things to pass the time. A little something to hold some back until there are updates. Anyway, enjoy!

A bejeweled knockoff.

Hey obvious noob here(first post), but I'm treating myself to a nookcolor for my birthday. From what I know there is no market/market-esque place to browse so.... how would you get those games?

They are playable from the web browser.

 

By the way, the B&N "Market" will be open beginning next year.

Whoa! So its already got Flash enabled? Yes. I'm definitely sold on the nookcolor! Can I hope for Rovio to bless it with Angry Birds, I mean it doesn't have that processor only to turn the pages of 1984 quickly right?

:smileyindifferent: Hi.  I don't want to feel stupid, but is it safe to add these games to the nook color?

These games are safe to play on your NC but you aren't adding them at all to the NC.  The games are essentially embedded into webpages, they run HTML5 a video and interactivity format used in place of flash.  They would be comparable to the original Web Apps for the iPhone, dedicated webpages that displayed games or other utilities on the iPhone prior to the launch of the app store.  These games will be playable without a wifi connection since they are browser based and would need feedback from the site, unless I am misunderstanding something about them but I don't think I am.

Re: List of Games for Nookcolor

There are some solitaire games. They do not play well on the nook though. Once I find more I will post them.
