New Acer systems will henceforth come with a built-in suite of formerly web-based games powered by a partnership with Pokki.

AllThingsDigital reports Acer Games will be accessible via a taskbar shortcut and on the Metro grid.

The games will be harvested form Pokki’s collection; the company hosts a Windows app store which offers of web games in app-like WebKit browser windows, which can send push notifications like a mobile app.

Pokki’s range was recently extended to include Zynga’s web games, such as Zynga Poker, Words With Friends, FarmVille 2 and CityVille.

Acer Games will also include Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies, Cut the Rope, The Godfather and Dragons of Atlantis.
