Hidden emulator !

Note works on ios 8. Latest iOS 8.3 disables adding games via ifunbox. Sure soon there'll be an update to ifunbox but for now you can't add your own games if you're on 8.3

So only get if you're on ios 8-8.2. Sounds good, Snes NES Gba and megadrive

Big new game out...

Forgotten Memories

About 5 years in the making ! Silent Hill-ish horror game, meant to be very scary, should be played at night. Bought this and had a good go, seems very promising, forum users are a bit hit/miss about the save system. But worth checking out

Grim Fandango remastered suddenly came from nowhere and appeared on ios. Looks great. Bit pricey but it's a classic game now on your phone

Going to upgrade to an iPhone 6 in a few weeks and just wanted to say I love these posts + heads up. Looking forward to going back through this thread for some recommendations :)

Yeah when I got my iPhone 6 it was great getting the more 'premier' style games which wouldnt work on my old phone. Eg Bio Shock etc

Very impressed with the iphone 6

Snake Rewind
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=261616

Quite interesting as this is a new version of Snake by the guy who did the original Nokia version. Its free, i've given it a go, Snake is still a boring game however you dress it up. I'll give it a bit of a chance as there seems to be some powerups (havent managed to get them yet)

But interesting to see this old retro classic having a makeover

Simplistic, just-one-more-go type mobile games are my favourites for phone though, great for killing time on the train in the morning

Transistor
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=263855

This came out from nowhere, never played it before but its a huge hit. From the makers of Bastion, now on iOS which is cool. I'll pick this one up later once i get an itunes card. Nearly 3 gig installed ! $10 but a proper AAA title on iOS, should be good

One touch platformer, nice little puzzle platformer. Free to play, 69p to get rid of the ad's. Pretty good actually and well worth trying

I've got 6+ for work, so will be sneaking some games onto it. Was sad that Vector Tanks has gone - loved that back on my original iphone.

Anyone played the new q-Bert?

Never been a huge Q-Bert fan, downloaded that new version. Doesnt seem bad, cant get used to the controls so much.

Shame about Vector Tanks, cant believe you didnt back up the ipa file ;)

Back all mine up onto Dropbox as now and then an old favourite disappears. There was another 3d Tank type game released recently by a german company, have to find the name out for you, didnt seem too bad.

Love the retro collections you get on iOS, the Atari/Activision 2600 collections are pretty good. The 'big' games like Invaders/Pac Man are missing but River Raid/Pitfall etc are good to have on your phone.

Got an iphone 6, didnt go for the + as it just seemed too big to carry, eg cant put it in your pocket, have to be in your coat. Great devices though
