Default 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?

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.
