All of my old games should work fine on even a first generation iPod touch, be sure I've been out of the app dev scene for over three years.

Fastar is a lot of fun!

Blue Defense is unique on the App Store (second wave may not be compatible, but we just put up the original again)

Blue attack and Red Conquest are more complicated, so depending on your kid he might just not like them.

Please excuse this mini-rant. It's not aimed at you. But It's too bad you had to sell it for a big loss. It was expensive when new, and you should have gotten many years of good use out of it. The iTunes store makes it very hard to find apps which are compatible with the older iPods like the 2nd generation. Apple could easily include an option to filter out incompatible apps, but for reasons I can only speculate, they haven't done so.

Apple makes its money by selling hardware, but it also makes money selling apps made by independent developers. But guess what? When customers find they need to get a new device after only a couple years, they're going to start looking at Android.

I like Apple. I don't mind paying for a quality device provided that I'm going to get years of good service. But Apple's policy of discouraging development of apps for older devices and the aforementioned roadblocks for customers who want to pay money for apps that work on older devices is corporate suicide.

So I made a simple tool to help Apple despite themselves, to help developers who did the hard work is making good quality games and useful apps, and even to help gamers with the latest iPod who don't want their little sister to mess up their personal device. (There are really lots of games still available for the 1st generation devices, so you can find something nice for her!)

As far as I'm concerned, the proper reason to get a new device is because there's some new game or feature you just want so badly you'll buy a whole new device (Think Halo when it was new, or the Grand Theft Auto 5 for the console players). When Apple tries to strangle the older devices, it's really strangling itself.

Oh, by the way, the App store recently began allowing downloads of "last compatible versions" but this is a poor solution because it guarantees you're getting an out-of-date app. If you want a shot at a current, supported app, you'll need a [URL="https://sites.google.com/site/iossearch/"]tool like iOSSearch[/URL].

Rant off.
