UFO Interactive Games has just released a new series of games that seek to arouse nostalgia for the good, old days of handheld gaming. The series is called Pocket Games, and appropriately at that.
Pocket Games is a collection of iPhone games based on some of the classics that used to be played on handheld video game devices back in the day.
With these retro-inspired titles, UFO Interactive Games hopes to “take you back to when gaming was portable, simple, wickedly entertaining and hard!” Or, if you’re a relatively young player, perhaps you might have a taste of how gamers used to roll with their portable consoles way back when.

Every game in the Pocket Series promises the following features:
- Gaming in its purest form – simple, addictive, endless and fun!
- A faithful recreation of vintage handheld technology using ‘pre-printed graphics’. What you see if what you get!
- Game Modes A & B – Just like the originals, there are 2 variations to each game, with B Modes being a bit tougher.
- Original chip-tune soundtrack!
The series comprises eight fun arcade games, all of which star an everyman named Jack and his family. Without further ado, the games in question are: Candy Factory, Egg Drop, Escape from Whale, Fireman, Fuel Drop, Kung Fu, Postman, and Watch Your Head.
Other than Fireman, which is free, all titles in the Pocket Games series are available in the App Store for $0.99 each. Will you be collecting them all?
