Some games for my netbook?

What are some good games for my netbook to play? I am not expecting 3d graphical games. More like indies.

Intel Celeron 847 (quite a bit more powerful then the atom series)
Intel HD 2000

Does it handle a 720P resolution pretty well? If so, there are tons of 2D indie games with that as the default resolution. FTL, Binding of Isaac, and I think Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale.

If you have Dosbox, your options open up a lot. I love playing old DOS platformers on occasion. Commander Keen, Bio Menace, Duke Nukem, etc..

I know Keen and the Duke Nukem platformers on are Steam and they launch right out of the client, no configs necessary. They even recognize my Xbox 360 controller without any tweaking (on my computer, anyway).

Terraria, To The Moon, Neverwinter Nights, Worms (any), Bastion had some lag on my old netbook....But it might work, Braid, BF2, Star Wars Battlefront 1 & 2, Titan Quest, Superfrog HD, Civilization IV, VVVVVVVVVVV and A Virus Named TOM.

I'd play more MMOs if there was no chat.

I ran emulators up to the N64 on my netboot. It was a dual core amd 1.0ghz, 4gb of ram, and has an amd hd 6350. I thought it was a great portable gaming device. Would last me 5-6 hours of just constant playing.

Port Royale 2
Patricians 3

If you could run it, definitely try the kings bounty series

Almost every one of those games are unplayable on a netbook.
