    I like the 'easy to learn; hard to master' retro type games. I've been playing this one along with others lately

    I like games like Foundry with 100 balls, simple and addicting

    Mega Man 2 was a horrible idea on iPhone. I like virtual d-pads more than most, but games like that demand precision the port just doesn't afford. Since I dissed a Capcom game, I'll say Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is actually pretty good. Yes, it's not as easy to control as with a Dreamcast controller, but the manic nature works well on an iPad. Also, Secret of Mana is pretty faithful. I imagine the same goes for Chrono Trigger. Then there's the recently released Star Wars: KOTOR which is amazing. Of course, none of those are cheap, either. How is 7th Guest on iOS? I have it but haven't cleared out enough space to download it (I think its 750 meg). How about Phantasy Star II? Road Blasters?

    Justin figuring out excuses over his articles XD Jet set/grind radio was frankly a stupid idea to put on a phone, its controls now are still finicky and not perfect

    This article inspired me to try Sonic on my phone. It does look and sound great! I find it really hard to play without buttons, though. Looks like I need to practice! I never really got into iOS games but I'm gonna give these a try.

    The IOS port of Sonic CD port is fantastic, seriously.

    A Towell article chock full of sega game mentions? NO WAI (And yes, i read the intro, but don't deny it towell, pretty much EVERY list of games you've ever made for GR always has at least ONE Sega game, without fault :P) Also, kinda shocked that the Contra port wasn't listed here, heard nothing but awful things about it... Then again, is this supposed to be for straight up ports and not remakes in any way? if so, then i guess it doesn't count...

    The Contra port I hear that was bad was the one that was released early on the Hong Kong app store. The one that came later performed better and had more lenient in-app purchases.

    I find Wolfenstein playing like trash on ios kind of surprising, considering that Doom actually plays really well. I probably would've included Doom on this list as one of the better games; the soundtrack and graphics are awesome, and you can customize most of the controls in the options, so it almost feels as good as playing on the Xbox or PC.
