    Posted on February 20th, 2012 Davy | 4 comments

    Whether or not you admit the truth, you must have the experience of playing video games in your childhood school ages or even now, just pretty much like every other smartphone owner nowadays out there. Maybe the video games you played some 20 or even 30 years ago weren’t as flashy as that you now play on your iPhone or Android smartphones as the hardware that they ran on was nowhere near as capable as your average contemporary smartphone. However, those old school video games could be just as entertaining as the ones played today. Do you want to re-experience these classic old school video games on your fashionable iPhone and Android smartphones? Here I have collected a Top 10 list of old school video games for iPhone and Android smartphones for you to play on your handsets. Check the bellow to get them:

    PAC-MAN
    PAC-MANFor those of you who grew up during the ’80s, an iconic game such as PAC-MAN needs no introduction. Simple to play, yet hard to master, it is one of the most recognizable and most successful video games of all time. Today, ports of PAC-MAN exist for both Android and iOS without being any different from the video game’s classic arcade version.Price: $3.99 (Android), $4.99 (iOS), free versions available

    Sonic CD
    Sonic CDSega once had an add-on for its Genesis console known as the Sega CD. It was garbage. However, Sonic CD was among the few noteworthy Sega CD titles, and checking it out is totally worth it even today. As usual, we have the adorable blue hedgehog zooming back and forth, collecting rings, and annihilating bad guys. Pure old-school fun! Price: $2.99. Platform: Android, iOS

    Another World
    Another WorldIt may have been released more than 20 years ago, yet Another World is still one compelling video game. It is pretty challenging too and requires you to make good use of your common sense. And can you imagine how awesome those cinematic cut scenes would have seemed to gamers of that time? Price: $4.99. Platform: iOS (Android version coming soon)

    Tetris
    TetrisYes, we know that this far from the plain old vanilla version of Tetris, but EA’s take on the classic video game is really fun to play nonetheless. And since a classic mode is available as well, there really isn’t anything more one could want. Price: $0.99 (iOS), $2.99 (Android), free versions available

    Prince of Persia
    Prince of PersiaPrince of Persia – you have probably played, or at least seen the modern interpretation of this otherwise classic video game. But have you ever taken the original for a spin? Now you can as the original version of Prince of Persia is available for the iPhone. Besides the overhauled graphics, everything is pretty much the same as it was back in 1989. Price: $0.99. Platform: iOS

    Atari’s Greatest Hits
    Atari's Greatest HitsWhat is better than having a good old classic video game on your iPhone or Android smartphone? Having a whole bunch of them, of course! Atari’s greatest hits includes 100 of the company’s hottest old-school titles that were once played in arcades or on the Atari 2600 video game console. The games are divided in 25 packs that cost $0.99 each, and buying all 100 of them will set you back $9.99. Platform: Android, iOS

    Streets of Rage
    Streets of RageHow about some good old-fashioned beat’em up action? Check out Streets of Rage, which has been ported to the iPhone by Sega itself. Sure, playing by yourself does get a bit boring after a while, but that is why Bluetooth cooperative mode has been included. Just find a buddy with an iPhone and let the fun begin! Price: $0.99. Platform: iOS

    DOOM
    DoomIn the early ’90s, violent video games were a rare kind. That is why DOOM, although being nothing special by today’s standards, was among the goriest games that one could play at that time (think monsters meeting chainsaws). With its dark, diabolic atmosphere and challenging difficulty, it captured the imagination of hoards of gamers and brought the 3D first-person shooter genre to the masses. Price: $4.99. Platform: iOS

    Commander Genius
    Commander GeniusHmm, Commander Genius for Android sure reminds us of Commander Keen – a classic PC video game from the early ’90s. Well, that is because Commander Genius is a port of Commander Keen, and a very enjoyable one, as long as you do not have to deal with the on-screen virtual controls. It is an unofficial port, however, which is why flawless performance is not guaranteed. Price: Free. Platform: Android

    DONKEY.BAS
    Donkey BasAs simple as it is, DONKEY.BAS has a special place in video game history. Why is that, you ask? First of all, because it is arguably the first PC video game ever produced. It was released back in 1981 and was distributed with each IBM PC sold back in the days. Oh, and it was co-written by Bill Gates too (we are not making this up). Price: $0.99. Platform: iOS
