If you picked up the recently released MOGA Ace Power Controller for iPhone, you probably want games to play with it. Well, Aztec Antics from UK indie developer Bouncing Ball Limited is a classic arcade-style platformer that packs impressive controller support on both iPhone and iPad. With both a selection of single-player levels with which to chase high scores and an assortment of competitive multiplayer levels, this one should appeal to fans of retro games and/or local multiplayer.
Gaming on iOS devices has steadily grown and grown in recent months and years, and now there's some really amazing titles available to play on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Here's a taste of some iMore favorites!
Ah! the 1980’s. A time when hair was big and so were the arcades. Sure, it's 2012 now, and we have more computing power in our iPads than we used to have in our houses, but there's still many a retro gamer just itching to play the classic arcade games on a classic arcade gear. Both the Atari Arcade Duo-powered joystick for iPad and ION Audio's iCade for iPad promise just that -- to give you a flashback of the '80s on the iPad of the '10s. But which is better, and which gives the best real arcade experience?
iCade mobile, the handheld gaming solution for serious mobile gamers, is now available with immediate delivery. Announced back at CES in January, the iCade Mobile is a case extension for your iPhone that offers dedicated hardware buttons and a directional pad for that classical, tactile, full-on handheld gaming experience.
Ion, the guys who brought us the magnificent iCade iPad arcade gaming cabinet have now announced some new gaming accessories for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. There are three new accessories in total to compliment the original iCade and they all look awesome. The iCade mobile is a handheld gaming system for your iPhone or iPod touch. The iCade Core is similar to the original iCade but doesn't include the cabinet surround. Finally the iCade Jr is a version of the original iCade designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Taito, the creator of probably the world’s most famous arcade game, Space Invaders has jumped into the world of miniature iPad arcade cabinets. The new arcade cabinet will be called InvaderCade and will feature art from the classic 1978 arcade game.
It is slightly different to the iCade as it lacks 7 of its buttons! This cabinet only has a joystick and one button; aimed solely at playing Space Invaders. The cabinet will also charge your iPad, has inbuilt stereo speakers and a headphone jack.
