Games on Pinephone
#1
I know there was a thread from 6 months ago talking about Retropie, but can we have a dedicated thread somewhere talking about what games work on the pinephone? I really like the idea of people posting here how they manage to get what game to work.

On Mobian, you have access to the full Gnome Software app, but there's literally no way to know if a game will "Just work", or "work but not fit on the screen", or just crash upon opening. The UBPorts app store is... kinda rough. Last I tried it a lot of apps just didn't work, and the games that did work were pretty minimal.

Atm I'm using Mobian, and:

-The only game I've installed that ran with zero issues was Aisleriot.
-All of the generic games with "Gnome" in the title don't fit on the screen properly.
-Retroarch from the Software Store opens, but neither fits on the screen or accepts touch-screen keyboard inputs.

Has anyone else found games that are playable? If anyone else is interested I might look into making a spreadsheet or database that can be updated as progress gets made.
