    "I just bought an Iphone and wanted to install a couple games, so I could see how well games would run on the phone. I love platform games, like the ones I used to play in the 90's. I found Ghosts'n Goblins, and I love it. The graphics give me feelings of nostalgia. The game is very challenging but not to the point you will rage quit. If you want an older looking platform type game, but updated, I suggest you download this"

    "Pac Man was fun to play when I was a kid and this brings me back to good childhood memories. The addition of missions and other things to do gives the game a type of variety I had not had when I was young and certainly lends challenge to the game. "
