Java games for openMoko

This one-button-at-a-time is not an uncommon to existing phones.  Many phone
keypads are implemented in such a way that they do not register multiple key
presses at the same time.  For instance, when playing the "Asphalt Urban GT
3D", a Java game, on my A707, I cannot both accelerate and turn at the same
time because it takes two keys.  Luckily, the game programmers must have
known this and there's a control mode that includes auto-acceleration so
that you don't need to press two keys at a time.

So, it would be good if the neo could play the games that already exist and
only require one key at a time.  I'm sure plenty exist for it to be worth
