iPod Video Games: A First Look

Sep 16th, 2006 | By | Category: iPods & Portable Media Players

Earlier this week, Apple introduced a new lineup of iPods. As part of the introduction, Apple announced that it would be selling a selection of games for iPods, including Bejeweled, Cubis 2, Mah-Jong, Mini-Golf, Pac-Man, Tetris, Texas Holdem, Vortex and Zuma.

“The setup and execution of gaming on the iPod is very high-quality, with smooth graphics, great features, short load times, and the ability to work flawlessly with music playback,” reports PlayFeed.

Here’s a quick demo of PacMan running on an iPod….

“The iGames collection fares quite well on the iPod and offers better value than a lot of other portable downloadable content (i.e games for cell phones, palm pilots,etc.). If this is the type of portable, casual gaming that Microsoft has in mind for Zune, then they may already be facing some stiff competition on the games front.”
