Thief - a popular video game series from the early two thousands is being rebooted, with the newest version coming out for Playstation Four and Xbox One this Friday. 

It's got fancy graphics and life like missions that you can play through for hours, and it's right at home on a next generation console. But what if you want something simpler? Maybe something a little retro?

Well, today on App Chat we have retro gaming apps for your phone. Dan Hsu, Editor-in-Chief of Games Beat, joins us to run down some of your options:

  • Namco Arcade has a collection of classic arcade games in their original forms like Pac-Man, Galaga, Xevious, Starblade, Rolling Thunder
  • Atari has a collection of classic arcade games including Pong, Centipede, Tempest, Missile Command, Asteroids and Super Breakout, as well as games from the Atari 2600 including Combat, Boxing, Adventure, Black Jack... all in their original forms.
  • Pac-Man Championship Edition is a fast, frenetic and modernized version of the classic arcade game.
  • Space Invaders Infinity Gene is a super modernized, stylized Space Invaders with Tron-like aesthetics.
  • Galaga 30th Collection is a collection of Galaga games that have been slightly updated.
