Android Market automatically restricts incompatible, un-supported apps, games from being installed on android phone / tablet. This is justified seeing that there are so many different flavor of SoCs from various hardware manufacturers that beautifully run Android.
Games use hardware acceleration with efficient Native C/c++ code. This code is often optimized for the platform and hence incompatible with others. But often, developers don’t allow relatively less compatible phones to maintain higher quality apps, and hence better rating. However, you can skip this compatibility check by spoofing your phone to be Google Nexus S. Google, by default, allows all apps to run on it’s developer phone: Nexus S.
