Retro Games

Anyone else LOVE these retro games? Like LED Football, Pole Position, Pac Man, etc?

Personally I just love the LED Football app... I'm 19 so I wasn't around when these games were hits, but I've always loved the retro games

Anyone have any info about more games like this? Especially LED Baseball?

Wow, I had totally forgotten about that game until I just watched that video. I can't even remember how old I was when I was playing that. Definitely buying it.

Another game that reminds me of the cheap plastic games handheld games that we used to buy is Micro Labyrinth (link: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=288297101&mt=8 )!

We also need ports of Pitfall, Burger Time, and Tapper. It would be fun to play Tapper on a touchscreen. I'd also like to see a King's Quest-type game (Roberta Williams classic), a Wizardy-type game (Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord version), and Dark Castle (a great Mac classic)!

I love retro arcade games. I have hundreds of them on my PC, that I use with the MAME emulator (and yes, I own all the arcade boards these roms come from. )
Is there a good MAME emulator for jailbroken iPhones? If so, I'd seriously consider jailbraking.

iPad Air: (64GB Wi-Fi Space Grey)
MFi controller: SteelSeries Stratus.
