Grand Theft Auto III - £0.69
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the launch of the original game in 2001, Rockstar Games created a handheld version of the Liberty City classic. This is a textbook port of one of the most popular games of all time, with the HD graphics rendering surprisingly well on a small screen, and the gameplay as fun and fluid as ever. There's the usual shooting and driving action and even a casino!
Football Manager 2012 - £2.99
As if footy manager wasn't addictive enough, the boffins at Sports Interactive decided to create this scaled-down, pocket-sized version that you can literally play anywhere. It may not have all of the features of the PC version, but in some ways that's a good thing, as you can whizz through seasons in literally no time at all. If you can wait a few more weeks, a 2013 version is expected before Christmas.
Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies- £4.99
Fans of the cult shoot-em-up rejoiced when Activision launched this port of the survival mode of the original Black Ops game at the back end of last year. It's not perfect, the multiplayer option is somewhat prone to lag and a slow frame rate, which renders it to be pretty much unplayable, but the single player mode is the best iPhone shoot-em-up by a long way.
Fifa 2013 - £4.99
Fifa holds the crown of 'king of console footy games' but is the mobile version any good? Well the graphics obviously don't hold up to PS3 standards, but in terms of gameplay, it's as good as ever, with a moveable joypad and simple and intuitive buttons for passing and shooting. Thanks to a new online multiplayer mode, you can even play your mates on the move.
Street Fighter IV - £0.69
Based on the classic arcade game, Street Fighter IV is by far the best beat-em-up to have made it over to the iPhone. Makers Capcom have done a great job of porting the control system, making this version as easy control as a classic arcade joystick. For a limited time, this is on sale at £0.69, and at that price, you won't be disappointed!
Crazy Taxi - £2.99
The ill-fated Sega Dreamcast wasn't exactly renowned for having a wealth of great games, but it did have a few crackers, and Crazy Taxi was among the best. Players are tasked with picking up as many customers as possible, dropping them off at their destination while performing stunts along the way. With a soundtrack including the likes of Bad Religion and The Offspring, this is one of the most fun and under-rated driving games of all time.
