    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "Ms. PAC-MAN is a classic. As a child, I would play this game at the arcades when mom would be shopping in the mall. While I love the game, the translation over to an iOS game iPad can become frustrating at times as it sometimes becomes unresponsible to finger swipes."

      "This is a cool game, but it's from the 90s. Therefore, despite it being one of my favorite classics, as it doesn't fit my search criteria I will have to give it a low score."

      "I wanted a taste of old school games preferably around 1980's. I managed to find this little app. It gives me a wide variety of retro games that I can play in one app! Which brings me hours of fun."

      "Well who doesn't love the original arcade PAC-MAN? The answer is no one. This app is certainly the solution to your 1980's game needs. With three game difficulties and constant updates for new mazes and challenges this app is the answer."

      "This is a great throwback game. It's fun to see the old 8-bits come out, but I still prefer modern graphics."
