    I had a few ideas of games I could play on my Pandora after switching back to it... and then I remembered that I had Covert Action on Dosbox.
    So Covert Action.

    Playing the zelda fangame Navi's Quest on the Pandora.

    It's pretty good. It's nice to go back to the basics. Walk around the world, clear dungeons, access to new zones, etc. The dungeons are pretty well designed. They require some thinking, but they aren't too complex either. They're really the center of the game since there's not much in term of story and side-quests.

    The main complaint I'd have would be that most of the improvements you can get come from a barter mechanism that imply a lot of back and forth on the overworld and even some grind, which isn't very interesting.

    I hope it will run on the Pyra. As far as I understand they use web technology to run the game, which I guess isn't the optimal use of hardware resources. But the game would fit perfectly.

    Played Metroid Fusion on the Pandora. It's very well designed but maybe a bit too formulaic. While I appreciated it I can't get enthusiastic about it.

    In the same vein, I'm now playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (on the Pandora as well), and I'm reminded of what a masterpiece this is. The sprites and decors are gorgeous and even the 3D stuff doesn't detract from the experience, the music is amazing, the exploration is pretty well handled: you're never stuck too long and the backtracking is manageable. The gameplay is pretty solid, though the game gets too easy after a while. It could probably have done without the stats/equipement-upgrading (apart from what's needed to unlock new areas). Still having a lot of fun.

    Farming Simulator 2019 (XBOX ONE X)
    Tryed this "Money Cheat" where you have to start a Multiplayer Game in "Farm Manager" Mode, make 8 Farms where ervery farm have 1.200.000 € Start Money each,
    Save this and load the Game in Single Player, and you the Game merged 8 Farms to one whit about 10.000.000 € Founds, instead of the 1.200.000 you have on a regular game..
    Only problem: you have the 400.000 € owe x 8 on your farm, so its takes quite a bit time to pay this back because this only works in steps of 5000 €..
    This works also multible times, and is great to try out every new farm equiptment, but on a regular game its cost lots of fun..

    Spintires Mudrunner American Wilds (Nintendo Switch)
    Bought the Game one Month ago in the E-Shop via Pree Load, and had finaly the changse yesterday to try it out:
    Plays simular to the XBOX Version, but this time, on a Handheld, and its seems to run much better than the Steam Version of the Normal Spintires on the GPD WIN,
    (who now have the issue that its need too long to load)
    I made the first Chalenge where you have to drive a semitruck whit a trailer in a russian city (whitout 6 x 6 ) whitout damaging your truck or other trucks that are placed a bit tricky..

    Finaly a Off Road Truck Simulator on Switch, ditnt testet the TV Mode, but i think there arend much diverents..

    There is a Original C64 Cardridge of this Game on the Spezial Edition of the Farming Sim 2019,
    I have only the a bit expensier Digital Version whit the Sessions Pass Included

    There is now a lot of MODS every Day, that they anounce via Twitter, so maybe they will make a Payd DLC some day..
    Some of the Stuff from the Farming Sim 2017 (like the Roll Bale Autoloader, or the South American Map) that arend in the Farming Sim 2019, was give to download via MOD HUB..

    Im Hooping now for some cool Community Mods, like an Unimog.., the Unimog i had in Farming Sim 2013 was pretty cool

    I have seen people play Farming Simulator and I don't get the attraction. Sure there is some educational value - they now know what to call the implements that get drawn behind various models of tractors. But it isn't exactly my version of fun.

    Euro Trucking Simulator is one that I actually made good use of. I just wish it were possible to drive cars in it. Why? I was using it as a driving simulator for a trip to Ireland so I could wrap my brain around the concept of driving a right hand drive vehicle on the left side of the road through roundabouts.

    I tend to play one game at a time for a -very- long time. For about the last 5-6 years it has been Killing Floor. Before that it was Neverwinter Nights. Now that NWN EE is out and there are persistent worlds migrated over, I'm starting to pick that back up again. NWN had a native Liinux client and NWN EE does too. It's now a native Linux steam game. Some day I hope to get it working on the Pyra (yes - I know X86 blah). Part of what gives me hope is that NWN EE is in bet a on Android - which might be an ARM compiled version. Maybe.

    Long while ago I had some luck with Exagear on the OMAP5 devboard, if 3D acceleration is ever enabled with Exagear on the Pyra it may be very playable.

    I'm really enjoying Fantasy Strike at the minute. They've made a really nice online ranking system where each ranked match is like a mini tournament.

    Does anyone here play it?

    I recall that. That was using the Windows client too - there is also a NWN linux X86 client that may be coaxed to work better?

    Depending on how they set up the Android NWN, hypothetically there may eventually exist ARM binaries too - though how tightly those get tied to Android itself is a bit of a mystery.

    Yeah I had library issues with the Linux version, but I was having issues even on my x86 desktop. I was running the original disk, so there is likely some update floating around I didn't see.

    To get the old 1.69 Linux version to run requires a bunch of twists and tricks with setting up links to the name of old library versions - lib location & versions seems to be hard coded into the game. I think it assumes a specific version of Ubuntu - running it on anything else requires some work. I fiddled around with trying to get my old desktop Linux install to run again. I got it 'working' without sound.

    The steam Linux Neverwinter Nights EE client simply downloads and runs. From what I can tell the NWN persistent worlds have migrated are in the process of migrating to the EE version. Connecting to persistent worlds is the main reason the game still exists. The single player modules are OK and can occupy many tens of hours playtime, but are more or less player training grounds.

    I'm looking forward to playing this on a Pyra - yeah, I know - Two Months - and then some for getting things working well.

    Started playing Jagged Alliance 2 again on my Pandora.
    At first I felt like it wasn't as good as I remembered, but then I rediscovered the depth and fun. The biggest problem I have is that I did my first game with nearly all the cheap AIM mercs, so if I want to change my team I either have to either go with the expensive mercs, which I can't afford or the MERC merc, who are just too bad.
