PSA: Stop Force-Quitting Your Apps on Your iPhone

iTunes Offers Up DS Games For Your iPhone, but Would You Play?

Would You Play DS Games on Your iPhone?

It's a well known fact that the iPhone and the iPod Touch are becoming full-on competitors to the traditional gaming platform. With thousands of games available to download and play at the touch of the screen, it's easier than ever to keep yourself entertained wherever you are. But the one thing I can't see myself doing is playing Nintendo DS games on my iPhone. I mean, the DS does what it does so well, why should there be any substitute?

I recently read a story on CNET about the five best DS games available for your iPhone, and although I'm all for mobile gaming, I just couldn't get on board. Yes, buying a $7 Cooking Mama app saves you a few bucks from the $20 sticker price of the DS version, but I just don't know if it would bring the same flair. How about you — would you play DS games on your iPhone?

Can we have a poll of how many geeksugar readers actually have an iPhone or iPod Touch? I'm curious because I don't have one :D

I download anything free or cheap that seems as thought it might interest/occupy my kids for more than just a few minutes is well worth it to me. I kind of balked at the App store price for Cooking Mama, but my girls love it on the Wii and DS, so eventually I caved and put it onto my old iPod touch (which has become theirs since I upgraded to the 3GS phone). By far the BEST app I have ever purchased for them (they even seem to prefer it to their other versions). CakeMania that the first poster mentioned sounds like another good one for them!

I downloaded the lite version of Cooking Mama on my iPhone, and I've gotta say that I do prefer playing those kinds of games on my DS. I don't know what it is, but that's just my preference.
