I grabbed Dig Dug Remix and Galaga Remix. I know everyone says the controls are terrible (which they may be, I don't know bc I haven't tried them yet) but I just couldn't resist picking up 2 absolute classics for only 2 bucks. I couldn't even begin to explain how many quarters and hours I wasted on these games in the arcade growing up haha

Edit: And if anyone hasn't picked up Pac-Man: CE or even Pac 'N Jump yet, do that now. They're both great!

And how is Mappy? Are the controls alright with this one? I never played it myself but I'm a retro freak and it sounds like people loved this one too.

If I don't own any of these games, which should I get first? In short, which are the best/funnest games? I'm not normally a fan of retro graphics, but some of these games look like they'd really interest me and look quite fun...

Pac-Man: Championship Edition is a must have no matter what price. Tons of content and a ridiculous amount of fun.

Ditto to Pacman CE. You need to find the controls that work for you to get the most enjoyment. Now if they'd bring Pacman CE DX! =D

Okay, will be picking up Pacman: CE then. Is it better than the normal Pacman game for iOS, would you say? Just curious, since I don't own any namco games.

Also: How good are Dig Dug Remix, Pacman Remix, Mappy, and the Time Crisis games? Some of those look like they might be fun, but I have no clue which are the best...
