Top Fifteen Retrogame Apps For Your iPhone (Part Three)

  1. 1. Top Fifteen Retrogame Apps for Your iPhone (Part 3)Welcome to part 3 of this four-part article. I’ve alreadycovered a total of seven top-selling classic retrogamesavailable for the iPhone in the first two parts. Let’s justget right to it and cover four more, shall we?8. Myst (Mac, 1993)Myst was a popular point-and-click adventure game that also was one of the relatively very fewgames available for Apple‟s Mac. In fact, more than that, it was one of the even fewer that werereleased for the Mac first before the PC. That alone already makes it historically significant (ingaming annals, at least).To further its distinction, Myst was also the game that added the term “point-and-click adventuregame genre” to the mainstream consciousness. Its popularity can be attributed to its gameplay:While seemingly no more different than other adventure games, it actually featured some of themore intelligent and rewardingly difficult puzzles in the genre, as well as showcasing a graphicalprowess (at the time) that really immersed gamers in the game‟s fictional world.Myst is now available for the iPhone, along with its equally lauded sequel, Riven.9. Mega Man X (SNES, 1993)Mega Man X is the first game from the second main series of the Mega Man franchise. Atpresent, there are now about seven series, with six of those taking place in the same universe.The X series was initially created to give a new edgier attitude to the franchise, andsubsequently ended up inspiring Capcom to create more spin-off series.The game is also notable for being the first game in the franchise to be released for a 16-bitsystem. This jump in gaming generation gave the X series more graphical oomph than theoriginal series (which remained in 8-bit then; and which went back to its 8-bit look with its mostrecent releases: 2008‟s Mega Man 9 and 2010‟s Mega Man 10).Anyway, it‟s Mega Man X that‟s available for the iPhone, and it‟s a game that you should makesure to get.
  2. 2. 10. Golden Axe (arcade, 1989)The first game in Sega‟s medieval fantasy-themed franchise, Golden Axe was a hack „n‟ slash(a beat „em up variant using swords, axes, and such) that was first released in the arcade andsubsequently found even greater popularity with its Genesis port. It‟s also with the Genesis thatthe main series produced two sequels, although spin-offs continued to be developed for thearcade and Sega‟s 8-bit systems.The Genesis version of this hack „n‟ slash classic is now available for the iPhone, along with itstwo direct sequels.Sources:Top iPhone News From Cashforiphoneshttp://www.cashforiphones.com/cfi/news/article/top_fifteen_retrogame_apps_for_your_iphone_part_3Related Links: • Sell iPhone For Cash • Cashforiphones News Site • Cashforiphones Fan Page • @cash4_iphones
