As part of a summer clean-up of the desk drawers, I pulled out the N800 and N9 and ported my game Loonies 8192 to these devices. Since those are "proper" Linux devices, one can compile things directly on-device (just install gcc from the SDK repos), and with SSH, it's easy to type on a real keyboard.
Anyway, you can install the game via the landing pages:
For the N800, make sure "maemo Extras" is enabled so it will find libsdl1.2 if it's not already installed. Head over to https://loonies.thp.io/n800/ on the device and download the deb, it will be installed by Application manager.
For the N9, make sure you have n9repomirror installed (again, so libsdl1.2 can be installed if necessary). Enable third party applications in Settings, Applications, Installations. Then head over to https://loonies.thp.io/n9/ on the device and download the deb, selecting after the download is finished will ask you to install it.
The N9 version is also available on openrepos.net.
And don't forget that the game is also available for DOS, various consoles and handheld consoles as well as on Windows. All of the builds are available on itch.io.
