How many of today's games will still be this fresh in thirty years' time? Pac-Man on iPhone is still charming, still iconic... still utterly addictive. All you need to do is steer Pac-Man round a maze (using tilt, swipe or touch-screen D-pad controls), eating pills and avoiding the four coloured ghosts. Anyone can understand and enjoy that.

That waka-waka noise is here in full effect as Pac-Man chomps through rows of dots and the noise the ghosts make as they're banished to the middle room is proper old-school awesome. With Xbox-style achievements to unlock, new difficulty levels and a level select for any level you've previously finished, this is asgood a conversionas you could ask for.

Above: Waka-waka-waka-waka... damn Pinky... waka-waka-waka-waka

The longest-serving GR+ staffer, I was here when all this was just fields. I'm currently Reviews Editor but still find time to speedrun Sonic levels and make daft Photoshop articles.
