TG Daily talked to the developers of "24", a game related to the popular TV show:
America has long resisted a global trend to use cellphones for more than just calling. Slowly but surely we are finally catching up with the rest of the world - SMS and MMS already have been gaining traction over the past two years or so and video games is the next trend to penetrate our phones.

Among major mobile content creators is I-play, which has or has taken part in the development of more than 100 mobile phone games in the past seven years. In a recent event in Hollywood, the company launched "24," a game that will be marketed alongside the related television show
More details over here.

I bet cell phones games will get even more common as cell phones get better. Nowadays most of these games still look bad but within a couple of years most cell phones will be able to run games like Quake 3 I believe.
