Now, I bet you're wondering how Mozart and Beethoven can possibly go together with explosions and planes. Well, my friends, I'll tell you how!
“Ninjas hate fruit”. I think I missed that memo, but it definitely provides a great basis for an awesome game.

Hella Umbrella, developed by Ramblin' Wreckage, is a very unique platformer that can now be had in beta form from the Android Market. I snagged the beta and gave it a very thorough run through.

Emulators have progressed to all different kinds of systems thanks to the advances in technology.

Real PC and console games on mobile devices are a kind of holy grail of gaming. And, like the grail, they are probably just fantasy and will never truly materialize.

This is what The Sims 3 offers in spades.
