iOS games that play similarly to classic arcade/NES games?

I'm looking for games that are similar to Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, and other classics.

Does anyone know of games like this for iOS?

Asteroid Asteroid

Wow! Thanks for asking that question. I am about to release a game in the App Store on January 10 called Asteroid Asteroid. It gives a tip of the cap to the golden age of arcade games while maintaining a feel of "made for mobile".

I hope this is a game you will enjoy playing.
