    If they would make Mario available for iPhone I probably wouldn’t be getting much done. I actually didn’t know they had many of these games available. I would like to see Mario, Zelda, and the entire Donkey Kong series. A few of the games you said such as Mortal Combat would be too tough to play on the iPhone or even the iPad unless you hooked up a controller which would defeat the purpose.

      On the iPad and Android tablets these games are usually built so that a SNES-like controller appears on-screen to use at the bottom. It may not be the same thing but it allows for a little more control.
