Installing a Game on a Samsung Mobile Phone

Ask a question
Samsung mobile phones are popular among gamers, but games that are downloaded and integrated often fail to be installed on the phone.

This problem is usually due to a formatting issue of the game extension that the phone's OS (operating system) fails to recognize. The game must have a .jar/.jad extension, and specific codes must be inserted, depending on the handset, through the game's settings.
