Java phones, also known as J2ME (Java 2 Micro edition) phones, are basic phones because they address basic communication needs. Over time, entertainment applications such as MP3 players, FM radio, and games have become an integral part of these devices.
Mobile gaming, especially, has evolved over the years. People prefer gaming on mobile phones more than on any other device, and it is evident from the fact that even big gaming brands like Sony PlayStation treat the mobile phone platform as an important part of their future. Sony recently announced the PlayStation gaming phone in collaboration with Sony Ericsson.
Here we have some popular game recommendations for Java based phones. These are available free of cost. Some of them are advertisement supported and all can be downloaded from popular Java app stores.

In the Chronicles of Narnia, based on the popular movie of that name, you have to help Prince Caspian and Pevensies battle for Narnia’s future.
The game provides hours of game play before you liberate Narnia. It is available free of cost but is ad supported, so you need an active GPRS connection as the app starts only once you connect to the internet.
