    "Some of the games on this, especially the trackball games, work fantastically well, unfortunately that's not true for all of them. Many of the games on this are severely gimped by poor controls which makes them not much fun to play. I would still recommend this just for the games that do work, just be aware that not all of them are going to be perfect."

    "On the one hand, it is PAC-MAN; The arcade game that defined arcade games. What's not to love? The controls, for one thing. Anyone who has seriously played PAC-MAN in the past knows how important quick inputs are. Unfortunately, you really aren't going to get that with a touch screen. If you can work around the sometimes sketchy controls though, it is still the game you know and love."

    "This game is just a boring, uninspired rehash of a rehash. This is the kind of thing I'd stick in front of a kid's face to shut them up for a few hours. It's not that the game doesn't work or anything, it's just sort of the lame time-waster that passes for video gaming nowadays. And worse, it has in-app purchases, soit's always trying to shovel a cash shop in your face, just in case you're so frustrated with this lame tripe that you're willing to pay money to make it go by faster. Just download a SNES emulator or something, if you really want a time-waster."

    "Brick Breaker Hero is a great arcade game app. Monsters are disturbing the peace in the kingdon so you have to defeat them. You break bricks to get to bosses. The game would be better with more levels but it's a classic Arkanoid game if you enjoy those check it out. "
