    I have a Sanyo 5300 and I am looking for some good Sprint compatible games. Preferably ones that do not have expiration dates.

    Monkey ball is awesome but only lasts for 30 days.

    I got a game called Aerostorm from Sprint that has NO expiration date. Its a somewhat decent shooter with color and cool music. It is a little slow moving though.

    So does anyone know any decent games out there? I know about the midlet games, spruce games etc. I am really looking for games with some decent graphic, like MotoGP, monkey ball, etc.

    I know the 5300 has enough power to do some cool stuff its just unfortunate nothings out yet.
    Maybe its too new of a phone!?

    anyway thanks for any info

    Well I just downloaded Galaxian Mini by Namco for my 5300 and its ver. It also doesnt have an expiration date! Apparently it has like 30+ levels! Anyway if anyone is a fan of this classic shooter then definitely grab it for your cell! The sound and graphics almost perfectly replicate the arcade!

    I am also probably going to try out Scooby Doo Jeepers Creepers. It also doesnt have an expiration date and looks decent.


    Anyway hopefully SOMEONE out there is actually playing games on there 5300. This forum seems to have very few gamers! I guess I am a real big kid at heart! [​IMG]

    I have gotten all of these games of the Sprint Games link from my Sprint Homepage.

    I just got Sno Pro which was pretty weak, dont waste your $2.99, now Im getting scooby doo. I will post info on it if its cool.

    Scooby doo is absolute poo [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dont waste your money. There is no sound and the game barely takes up the whole screen. Looking at this game sno pro looks like the way to go [​IMG]

    Anyway now that I am done rhyming and spending over a bunch of cash ($15+) on games for my 5300....
    Maybe some other guys on this forum can try buying some of the games? The next game I would recommend would be Mobile Racing by nGame. It is a no expiration racing game that just might be decent.

    So far the list of definite buys are:

    1.) Monkey Ball, 30 day use, but by far the best game. Great graphics and sound. Very colorful, challenging, 15 levels (2 bonus levels included). This game looks WAY better on the 5300 than the Motorola AT&T T720 I had! The colors are so vibrant with very detailed graphics. You can actually see the little monkey in the ball! The graphics quality difference with the 5300's 65K colors (T720 4096 colors) is like night and day!

    2.) Galaxian mini, NO expiration! Old school classic shooter. Zoomed in style view so ships are twice the size of original arcade game. Great classic retro sound, animation and action.

    3.) Aerostorm, NO expiration! An allright shooter. Cool music and power ups. Very hard and THE only downside is the slowdown while playing. Still for $1.99 its a deal.

    The rest of the games I got are pretty poor. Sno pro is allright but probably not worth it.

    I may try Qbert and baseball next. Baseball by sega looks awesome but it has a limited term play time [​IMG]

    Thanks for reviewing the games! I'm going to try downloading one of your recommendations while at the family Christmas party later tonight (boring!). I'll post here if I find another game that is worthwhile.

    No problemo. Please let me know what you think of any downloaded games.

    I actually emailed a company online named Mophungames.com that develps some GREAT looking games for the Sony Ericson T300. My prupose of emailing them was to see if they planned to make games for the Sanyo 53000 Below is the email response they sent me:

    **************************************************************************************************

    Hello. As it is now the games on our site works only on mophun enabled phones, that is Sonyericsson T300. But the mophun crew (not mophungames) are working on getting more phones and pda's and stuff that will work with mophun. They are developing a mophun player for symbian also so if your phone is symbian enabled there will be a chance to play our games on your phone.

    Regards Mophungames crew

    Well I recently got the Sprint nGame made game called Mobile Racing. Its actually pretty cool but kinda difficult. It reminds me ALOT of the classic sega game Outrun and/or the Turbo grafx 16 game Victory Run. It has various race tracks with different backgrounds, unlike Moto GP that has different tracks but the same looking backgrounds.

    Anyway this game is pretty cool, has no expiration date and is only like $3-4

    come on guys hasnt anyone else played some games!?

    I've played a few of the free ones. SpruceBlocks (Tetris) and SpruceCheckers are my favorites. I would avoid Solitaire (Klondike) from MANK, since I've played a ton of games and never solved it. Once in version 1.2 I had all the cards displayed, and the six of spades was MISSING >[​IMG] from the deck! The PMAN (Pac-Man) game looks great, but is nearly impossible for fat fingers to manage on a 4900!

    Yea some of those spruce games are cool. Spruce Driver is pretty cool. Very retro.

    There is actually a FREE sprint game on the sprint games page! Its called Riverboat blackjack or casino. Anyway its a very cool color/sound black jack game. Lots of fun and FREE I was playing it quite a bit while in line at the Post office for 20 minutes. It definitely kept me busy!

    Thanks for the game info post CEgiven. I think the 5300 has ALOT of gaming potential that just needs to be tapped. I recently emailed a guy at www.gameloft.com that was very cool and said that they should begin developing games soon for the 5300. I plaid gamelofts siberian strike shooter game on my Cassiopeia E115 and it was awesome.

    One gaming area which I haven't investigated, which would be cool, would be online games. Certainly somebody is running a WAP or XHTML website games -- MUD, chess, checkers, etc. My phone is TOO SMART and it's very hard to beat SpruceCheckers. The nGames 4-in-A-Row is pretty easy to beat, even at hard level. Another good one I've run upon is Clix. The first level was deceptively easy, and I dismissed it too early. One thing I like about the non-Sprint programs is there is no expiration date. E.g., the nGames 4-in-A-Row came from Sprint, but it (and the BlackJack you mentioned) will be gone in two days. I guess I can download them again, but since I'm a cynic by nature, it may be that Sprint has programmed their site to ask for money the second time around [​IMG] I've been working on loading ringers on my website, but I'll have to get some of these games posted. They're a bit trickier because the JAR files has uneditable entries that must match the JAD contents, while GCD files are completely open ended.

    I've been to Sun's site and the basic development tools are free. I don't know Java, but I've done some C++ so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch. But coding is coding and it all takes forever. Sigh.

    What I hope to see soon is non-game programs. Most of what's out there is very boring (e.g., calculators -- which most phone already have). I did find a utility that would take a UPC and return information. "Would" if it would -- it kept giving me errors. But it would have been cool. I've also been disappointed to learn that the GPS feautures of the phones are really not GPS at all. So you won't see your phone displaying your latitude and longitude any time soon (sigh). That would be handy for warchalking [​IMG]

    Yea I was actually looking through a Java magazine at the newstand that was talking about J2ME which are phones are capable of running. I am sure I could put some type of game together but after looking at how complex the programming is I said forget it. I just dont have the time. Hopefully some new quality games and apps will come out soon.

    When I talked to the guy at Gameloft.com he asked me if as a customer I preferred games with or without expiration dates. Obviously I said that no expiration dates were better. I explained how I would even pay more for a game to ensure this feature. The pain of having to redownload a game after expiration is just ludicrous.

    anyone know where i can get a copy of sega monkeyball demo. i used to have an a500 before upgrading to a 5300 and got used to being able to play even just the demo while waiting in a line or whenever i had time to kill. already downloaded the pay version from sprint, but cant seem to justify paying for it monthly when i only plan on playing it occasionally. thanks in advance.

    Hey guys, I am looking for a block breaking game from way back when.
    Its hard to describe, but it is like bubble pop games, only with blocks that are in different shapes and colors. It started off as a PC game and then sprint carried it for the 5300 Sanyo. PLEASE HELP ME!!!
