OVI Games all need internet to work?

Im sorry, Im having a feeling there is a catch somewhere and this should be obvious, but I couldn't find the solution for this one;

 

Im downloading games to my E61i smartphone... but all these games need to load adds and therefor it needs internet everythime I want to play. How frustrating!

 

So does this website offer stand alone games, where you just click and play.

Please im really looking for a good website. Ovi store looks nice, but im not willing to pay for a simple game like snake or anything. do i have to 'pay to play', or whats the deal?

Re: OVI Games all need internet to work?

Thats the way it works.. You have to decide whether you want to PAY every time you play a FREE game or just ONCE for a PAID one..

BTW, Google for it and you may find some REAL FREE games..and there may be some Free games on OVI Store too that may not need Internet connection..Read the details before you download..

I see, well than thats the way it is.

Yeah, sometimes its mentioned in the details when it will ask for a connection.

 

Im not not that kind of freak to spend money on that. So I found some REAL free games on OVI, but a great website to find for that is -> (google "mobile heart")

 

But I think most people know where to find some free stuff to fill in some time when your having a break on school, at work, anywhere whenever your bored and your smartphone is to the rescue.

 

Thanks for replying, this is solved. :smileyvery-happy:

Though not in all cases, there is a mention that the application will require Network Connection if you read the details...
