Apple products, you either love them of hate them. Either way you have to give the iPod Touch some props for its gaming conception. Certainly, if you own a Smartphone you have a few gaming apps on them. The iPod Touch brings this same capability without the expensive monthly charges.
Sure but all the Games are Simple Apps
There are those of course but even in that genre you will find some exceptional and detailed games. If you are into old school arcade games - remember Pac-Man, Centipede and Asteroids? You can get them all on one game pouch with a ton more. Love pinball? there are dozens of free or low-priced apps for that too.
For the more seasoned app player, check out such fun games as Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and Tetris. If you like social games than Words, with Friends, Scrabble and Hanging with Friends are current big draws. All these games are intuitive, possess outstanding graphics and interfaces and are fun and easy to play.
Something else to look into on the gaming circuit for this platform are games such as Party in my Dorm. These interactive games are built on building your college empire through fighting, dancing, and pranks, towards the goal for college supremacy.
Sure but What About Real Games
Not convinced because you have your giant hand-held platform with all those cartridges and you want some real game action? Well, the iPod Touch provides this as well. There is a game store full of games that can be downloaded and played on this platform with full capabilities.
Still Not Convinced
That’s cool, this article is all about educating you about a product you might not have considered for your gaming needs. It’s also a viable and fairly inexpensive tool for more than just games of course. Music and video playback makes the iPod a great portable device even without the use of downloadable apps. Perhaps you’ve considered an iPod in the past or any iOS device, and maybe this short opinion piece will give you the confidence to give it a go.
