The first adventure game for N-Gage, Dirk Dagger is set in the world of a traditional 1940s-style private investigator. Rather unusually this title lets you explore the game world using the phone's camera, and it has been designed entirely with phones in mind.
Incidentally, this game was previously known as Dirk Spanner, but that may have been a bit too close to a TV series called Dick Spanner, which was also about PIs.
All About N-Gage Review:
The characters, story, dialogue, artwork and setting are all wonderful, with a lovely dollop of humour, and cultural references by the bucketload covering everything from 1940s movie moguls to 1970s British sitcoms to 2000s console games. Dirk Dagger doesn't take long to play (2 or 3 hours) but that time is extremely enjoyable. However, there's one important element largely missing: the gameplay. There's just nowhere near enough user interaction. (click here for the full review)
