10 old school games for iPhone and Android

10 old school games for iPhone and Android
Admit it, you play video games too, just like pretty much every other smartphone owner out there. And even if you don't play on a regular basis, you have most likely tried some of the more popular titles just to see what they are all about. But have you ever wondered what video games were like some 20 or even 30 years ago? They weren't as flashy, that is for sure, 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. That is why we have picked 10 retro iPhone and Android games that we think are worth checking out. Care to see what is on our list? Just flip through the slideshow below to find out.

Nope. I was hoping to find a decent port too. But good thing that we have emulators.

I played #3 all the time on SNES (Out of this World). Voice was sooo bad on there, but funny. I always loved the "Better Stop!" that changed octaves and then when the "friend" tells you to go to the last room it sounds like "Last Aruba".

Kinda sad that there are 5 games exclusive to iOS, 1 game exclusive to Android, and 4 games that are for both.

Definitely love having Streets of Rage in my pocket. I wish Sega would port more of their old school games to the iPhone. I know Nintendo will never cave.

the n64 emulator is ok...some of the video plays choppy for the games i played, but i loaded up on some more old school to compensate for this problem :)

Are Duke Nukem 3D and GTA3 old enough to be considered "old-school" yet? lol
