Now You Can Play Part Of Old Phone Games Legally, Easily and Free




Last month, Gamoftoft released a collection of 30 classic phone games, some dating back to 2007. These games are now fully playable on modern Android devices. Best of all, they are completely free to play.

Gameloft Classics: 20 years it's something I've been wanting for a long time. As someone who grew up playing old telephone games for hours, often pulling on my parent's phones in progress, these old games have a special place in my heart. They are also an integral part of the gaming history, but because of the way mobile phones were coming back then and the lack of a large community, these games are difficult to emulate and play by 2020. So this new app from Gameloft is a great start to making these games available on modern devices.

There are 30 games in the collection and they are all free. No timers or in-app purchases. There are some ads that appeared when you first started the collection, but nothing in the game. The fun and well-designed collection that Gameloft has produced, with each game being updated to work with touchscreen visual controls. I'm sure some of these games aren't great, but I'm very happy to see these games are given a second life in modern hardware.

In the early and late 2000s, mobile games were very different than the mobile topics we see today. They play and look very much like SNES and Gameboy Advance games, complete with pixel-art graphics and simple controls.

Games can be played landscape or in photo mode.

Some of these classic games would continue to be great features for Gameloft, such as Gangstar and Today's Combat. Some will probably be remembered only by people who had an old Nokia phone back in 2009 and really liked puzzle games.

Actually playing these games on a smartphone in 2020 is not the best feeling. The screen is small and sits poorly in the purple sea. The physical buttons go well, however any game that requires you to hit diagonal combos is tricky. And I wish there were more details about each game found elsewhere. I recommend playing games in landscape mode, it makes you feel like playing your Gameboy Micro and it's fun.

No matter how bad some of these games are, I still enjoy the mobile game publisher who is working on releasing their old games to newer and easier-to-use platforms. And free of charge. I'm hoping that other companies can release some of their old mobile games on PC or modern devices, so we don't lose the colorful and important time of gaming history.
