We take a look at just some of the many great games that you can play on your GPD Win. In this article we cover a mix of genres from arcade action to role playing games.
Watch our video of great games to play on the GPD Win
Day Of The Tentacle (Original or Remastered)
Both the original and remastered version of Day Of The Tentacle (DOTT) works great on the GPD Win. This point and click adventure game has the perfect blend of story, comedy and puzzle solving as you fix a time travel machine. The three main characters are stuck in different periods of time and you must switch between them to get them all back to the present. Despite the original being over 20 years old, it still holds up very well by today’s standards with great looking cartoon graphics and voice acted speech.

There is always a good excuse to play one of the finest story driven first-person action/adventure games. If you have not played this before, do check out the first Half-Life as it also works great on the GPD. You play as Gordon Freeman who in HL2 starts on an alien-infested Earth and goes on one hell of a journey to try to rescue it back. Then afterwards, join the rest of the gaming community potentially waiting forever for Half Life 3!
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
Geometry Wars is a great pick up and play arcade game ideal for on the bus, train or passenger seat. It is a twin stick shooter which is perfect for the dual analogue sticks of the GPD Win. Featuring trippy neon graphics and sounds, you must fight off waves of enemy ships who are trying to destroy you.
Castle Crashers is a side scrolling hack ‘n slash 2D arcade adventure. The game story is humorous with plenty of laughs during the cut scenes to keep things interesting. There is an easy to follow levelling up system and many additional characters to unlock as you progress. It can be played single player or four player co-op in the story, or all out battle in the arena mode.
Shadowrun Returns is based on the Shadowrun board and video games. This fantasy world cyberpunk themed game is an isometric turn-based strategy game which works very well on the GPD Win. You have a choice of races to play and can modify your skills to become more powerful as you progress through the story. There are also plenty of additional missions to download from the Steam Workshop. This game comes highly recommended if you want a game with plenty of staying power.
Fallout 3 & New Vegas
Steam Store: http://store.steampowered.com/app/22300/Fallout_3/
Both Fallout 3 and New Vegas work great on the GPD and together will provide hundreds of hours of play time as you explore every nook and cranny of the massive playable worlds, and this is not including the many additional content addons available from the Steam Workshop. Fallout 3 is my favourite of the series, grab a Nuka Cola or two and settle in for one of the best RPG games out there.
Football with cars, simple! This action packed sports game is great fun to play with friends online but you can also play single player against the AI. The game does need a little tweaking in the graphics settings for best performance, but once done it works great. Highly recommended if you want a quick pick up and play game or an evenings fun playing online with friends.
Steam Store: http://store.steampowered.com/app/107100/Bastion/
Bastion is an isometric action role-playing game with a reactive narrator who follows your every move. The story is excellently written and a few twists and turns will have the hairs on your arm sticking up as the music and narration seamlessly blend with the game. The voice acting is like having Morgan Freeman guiding you through the game. This is one of my personal favourite games on PC and with over 100 gaming awards it seems quite a few others favourites as well. Just buy this game, you won’t regret it!
Little Racers STREET
Little Racers STREET is a top down racing game which can be played single player against CPU AI, or online multiplayer. It features a variety of tracks and conditions to race on and a large number of vehicles to unlock and drive. The controls work great with the GPD gamepad and it runs at a good speed which is essential for a racing game.
Mark of the Ninja
Mark of the Ninja is a stealth platform style side scrolling game. The beauty of this game is that it can be played in a number of ways. You can chose to stealthily avoid all the enemies to complete the mission, or go all out rampage and dispatch every enemy, or a mixture of both. The stealth mechanics are excellent and if you have been put off by bad stealth in other games, be rest assured this game will change your opinion. This game comes highly recommended!
